Pre-Spring

I have to apologize.  I know that there are so many events to celebrate these days- Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday, the Oscars, the Daytona 500, and even looking forward to St. Patrick's Day.  I had plans- crafts, desserts and drinks to share (and even work to do!), but I just couldn't stay inside long enough to make them.  When God gives you a string of 70 something degree sunny days in February, you celebrate that instead.  



The flowers are blooming. 




Including the "Forcynthia"!



The leaves on the Hydrangea bushes are starting to pop out. 



My world is awash with sunshine and bright colors this week. 



And top down Jeep weather has come a little early this year.  

So please forgive me if I don't post so much these days. I promise I will get back into the swing of things soon- I have so many fun things to share with you!  In the meantime, I hope that you are enjoying a beautiful pre-spring (whatever the weather may be at your house!). 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  



A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  



This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Valentine's Wreath

I am really enjoying my role as a member of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog design team!  It is really challenging me to find new ways to explore my Cricut and more importantly, to find time to relax and craft! 
This week we are challenged to create a project about Valentine's Day. This Weeks Sponsor: D.L. ART- www.dianamlarson.com
A Valentine Bundle!To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I got this idea about a month ago.  I might have changed my mind if I had truly considered how much time would go into it! 

I started with a green foam wreath from Michaels which I painted pink. I then started making paper roses using the Flower Shoppe Cartridge.  



At first I used the Recollections Pink Buttons Paper Collection, fo…

Back to School Crafts

We Southern girls will monogram anything and if we can do it in our school colors, then that is all the better!  This year I decided to personalize some supplies for family members who are going back to school using their initials and school letters in school spirit colors.  





One thing you never have enough of in college is storage.  Whether it is for school supplies, bathroom necessities or kitchen equipment, there is never enough space in a college dorm or apartment to organize everything that a girl needs.  This little basket has my daughter's initials on one side and her school letters on the other.  Her school colors are blue and yellow. 




When you start off at a new school you have to have to stock up on stuff in your school colors. My cousin is just starting middle school this year.   This little cup has her initial on one side and her school letters on the other.  The colors are blue and silver. You can't really see the blue and silver polka dots on the cup, but they are …
