Are you looking for a gift for that hard to buy for guy? Look no further. My husband loved the first bouquet I made in my original post the man bouquet . This time I thought I’d follow it up with another version by using a beer mug instead of a flower pot. It looks even better!
My sister in law and her husband built a home out in the country in Paradise… no, that’s what their town is called… Paradise. We went to see their new house last night and it is gorgeous… lots of land, trees, and a brand new custom home. I surprised her with a house warming gift – a Home Depot bucket filled with all kinds of new home goodies.
So as you saw in an earlier post I made a Fishing Cooler for my aunt and she loved it! I also gave her the Americana Wreath when Cassie and Elisabeth taught the class a few months ago. So naturally when she found something that she liked online, she sent me the picture and asked me to make it for her. Here’s how I made the red, white, and blue horseshoe star!
My sister, Cally, had a baby shower to go to for one of her friends. She wanted to give something special that would be useful for many years to come. Ww came up with this great baby shower book basket idea. This project cost her about $35.00 to make and is something that mom and baby can enjoy together for many years.
Today is my third wedding anniversary and the gift theme is leather! Not wanting to be cliche about expensive and meaningless gifts I thought it would be fun to stay with the traditional wedding gift themes that were handmade or custom ordered. I’m sharing my year one gift with y’all! The traditional first anniversary gift theme is paper, I searched high and low for the best idea for a thoughtful gift to give to my husband that was’t too feminine or cheesy. I decided on maps cut into hearts of the places ‘We met, He proposed, & We Married.’ Travis and I met at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX, he proposed to me in Riviera Maya, Mexico and we got married in Lucea, Jamaica! The ability to use three completely different maps is what really drew me to this project.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of going to a friend’s baby shower, I love shopping off of registries and buying a cute little outfit for the mom to be. This time I was determined to make a special gift, and I decided on embroidered burp cloths. My friend is having a little boy so I wanted to make burp cloths with little neckties on them.
I have been combing Pinterest for the perfect thank you gifts for my parent volunteers. I teach kindergarten and I couldn’t get through my year without the help of my parent volunteers. I wanted something that they would keep, reuse, and remind the parents of the kids and classroom for weeks to come. This idea I found and pinned to my Classroom Gifts pinterest board where I collect ideas for parents, other teachers, and gifts to students.
Happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a craft I did for Elisabeth over 3 years ago. It was one of the first blog posts I did on the old blog (now it’s one of the most popular searches on Pinterest for puff paint on canvas!). Wait until you see how easy it is to add handwriting to a canvas. It’s a fun and easy craft and you could really play around with the idea to come up with some fun projects.
In honor of teacher appreciation week and the school year coming to an end, I’m sharing the crayon monogram I made for Cassie’s classroom a few years. I got the idea from, you guessed it, Pinterest and went to work. This is such an easy craft to make for your child’s teacher or your teacher friends.
When my friend, Kristi, was pregnant with Zach, her husband, Josh, came up with the cutest idea to have a Calvin and Hobbes themed nursery. Josh grew up loving Calvin and Hobbes and wanted to share that love with their son. They mentioned wanting to look online to see if they could buy Zach his very own Hobbes plush and that’s where I come in! Of course I volunteered to try to make one myself and lucky for me I found a great how to here from instructables! By the way, I love this picture! It’s like Zach and Hobbes are in cahoots over something!
