Travis’ Golden Birthday

Now that I know what Golden Birthdays are I couldn’t resist throwing one for my hubby. He’s less decisive than I am, so planning this shindig was literally only a couple of days before the get together took place. Travis decided that he wanted to go on a Cowtown Cycle in Fort Worth for his birthday and can I say it was a BLAST even if my butt was sore for a few days afterward.

Placemat Garden Flag

Good morning!

I’ve always wanted a garden flag to add some personality to my front landscaping and recently heard of an idea to use a place mat to create your own. I grabbed a neutral color place mat at the store and went with the idea and it worked out great! If you don’t have a vinyl cutter or heat press you could use a stencil and some fabric paint to easily make one too.

Home is Where the Anchor Drops Mat and Wreath

So a couple of weeks ago, I was out shopping with Elisabeth at Hobby Lobby for a Valentine’s Day wreath she had in mind. I didn’t need anything,` was just browsing. We were looking at ribbons, and I saw this anchor ribbon, that I knew I absolutely needed, and I needed to make a wreath out of it! Sometimes inspiration hits just that quick! I happened to find the wooden anchor at Hobby Lobby too, and of course they had the wire form wreaths too.

Wood Block Conversation Hearts

I was wanting to find some fun home decor crafts in honor of Valentine’s Day. When I started searching through Pinterest I couldn’t find anything that I really liked. Everything seemed to look like child crafts or even a bit cheese-y. There were many wreath choices but I was wanting something for home decor. After some thinking I had the idea to paint wood blocks to resemble conversation hearts. The result turned out great!
