Table Lamp

I'm pretty sure I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I am so SICK of snow. I know Mother Nature is supposed to know what she's doing and all, but seriously! I guess we'll have a mild fire season this summer here in Montana...I say this however, in a sad attempt to look at the bright side of shoveling snow everyday and icy roads. Yet, I will shovel snow off our back porch in my house slippers. Right.
I've been wanting to make the table lamp from theMaison de Madeline SVG kit from SVG Cuts ever since I got it. In fact, it is the reason I bought the kit to begin with. I've been putting it off, because while I have all of theses ideas as to what I wanted to do with it, none of them really made mehappy so I've waited. Then the Honeybee Tea SVG kit came out last week! I made the tea pot right away, of course, but that honeybee had been floating around my brain since I saw it. So cute. I really dig the laurels on the front of the card too. 
I now have 6…

I'm A Little Tea Pot...

Last week SVG Cuts launched a new kit. It is so lovely. Just like the Winter Gazebo kit, it's a breath of fresh air. I can't help it, I look at it and I sigh. The new kit is called Honeybee Tea. I could really see using this for so many different occasions. I totally just had a vision of a Christmas Tea Pot pop into my head! Which is ludicrous because we just had Christmas and I've been saying (whining) how over it I am.
I thought I would have a lot to say about this, but as I sit here and type, I realize I really don't. It's just a wonderful project, and it was a treat to make!


Here's to the end of Valentine's Day...

A couple of weeks ago I had posted about the Love Potion bottle I made in red. My girls loved it so much, I really wanted to do another so each could have one. I really like how this turned out!
These two remind me a lot of my girls and they're personalities. My oldest fits this one perfectly and my youngest is definitely like the red one. 
 I can remember when I was a kid, it was like the best thing ever to make your Valentine box at school. Looking back however, it was kinda lame. I don't know if it's because I'm older or that I have all of these really groovy things at my disposal or maybe both. So when my younger daughter said to me that she was worried her box wouldn't look good, I encouraged her to do her best, but I surprised her with this.

 Ryleigh doesn't like a lot of hoorah on anything, so I was going for simple, but pretty. She was over the moon! The bummer part? The day before Valentine's Day, her teacher told the class they couldn't bring…

Guitar Box & Love Bus

So it's the day after V-Day and I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. I sure did. It was pretty basic, but I'm totally cool with that. I got from flowers from him and he got a hockey game. Romantic right?  Seriously though, it was nice.

I  also really enjoyed seeing what everyone had done for their crafty Valentine projects. Lots of creativity floating around out there! I didn't get to do as much as I would have liked to, but that's ok. There's always next year! Besides I think it's definitely time to move on to another holiday and also just because projects. Those are my favorites anyway!


What do you do when you've got two ideas in your head, and you really like both versions, but you can't decide which one to do? You make both! Well I do anyway. 
I was browsing through SVG Cuts Facebook page checking out what everyone had made for the Day O' Love and I felt inspired to do something different. I had made a couple of things that others had made as w…

Spring Fever!

At the beginning of January I was ready to pack my bags and either join the circus (provided they were someplace warm) or pack my bags and head for a tropical island. The holidays with my family were great, but I was to the point if I had to look at another poinsettia for at least another 10 months I was gonna scream! Not to mention it was cold outside. Really cold. Although as I type this, it is 15 below without the windchill. Yeah...

Soo...
About that time SVG Cuts released a new kit. I mean seriously people, I'm always blown away by Mary and Leo's talent, but this was spectacular! I gotta be honest, Mary's design are so brilliant and look so well done I'm afraid if I do it, I won't do it justice. Of course I do it anyway, cause that's the point right? Well, that and I'm a craft junkie. Now usually I keep an eye on Facebook, because Mary and Leo are pretty good about giving us a sneak peek of items out of the kit. I didn't have a chance to on this one…

Birthday Girl

I wanted to make something for my youngest daughter, Ryleigh for her birthday on the 11th of February. I had made a bouquet of 16 roses for my oldest daughter, Natasha when she turned 16 in December. It was interesting to me how excited Ry got when she saw what I was doing for her sister.  I say interesting because we're talking about a kid that NEVER gets excited about ANYTHING crafty. Usually when I make something and ask her what she thinks, she usually just smiles and says "yeah that's nice Mom" and goes on her way. You should see her reaction when I get excited about new paper or fabric! She generally looks at me like I'm completely crazy! This was different though. Not only did she get really excited about it, but she was openly giving me input on what she thought I should do. Who are you and what have you done with Ry?

OK so now I finally get to see her get excited about something crafty. Great! Now what can I do for her? Ummm.... It was easy for her siste…
