House Warming Bucket Gift

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.

Burlap Valentine’s Day Heart Wreath

The day that I discovered how to make burlap wreaths changed my world! Now burlap wreaths are all I make and I’m always trying to figure out unique ones! I am especially fond of this wreath because I got the idea while brainstorming with hubby. Check out the tutorial on how I made this Valentine’s wreath for my door.

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!

Yarn Wrapped Letter Monogram

Elisabeth and I are busy getting ready for our first craft booth next weekend. We’ll have some really great posts coming up about our booth design and booth crafts for displays. We are having a lot of fun but are quickly learning the amount of time and work it takes to have a craft booth.

Today’s craft is an oldie but a goody. It’s a monogram wreath or display that has been wrapped in yarn. I think this would love great with sayings like “home” or “love” or initials in a nursery or on a mantel. So many great ideas!

Wedding Date Sign

This weekend my sister and I went to the antique mall to look around. We passed by some fun looking wooden painted numbers that I instantly thought would be great to have in the master bedroom to signify an anniversary date. I dug through the tub and couldn’t find all numbers that I needed. Then the idea came to me to try and make my own numbers so we stopped at Michaels on the way home and grabbed everything I needed.

First Anniversary Paper Gift Idea

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.

Ruffled Lamp Shade DIY

It’s been pouring here in Fort Worth, Texas. Tropical Storm Bill made it through our area dropping 4″ – 6″ of rain through the DFW metroplex. Rainy days make for the perfect craft days. I turned an old lampshade into something fresh and new with a no sew way to apply fabric. You only need 3 materials, all of which I already had, and some time set aside to make this lovely little ruffled lamp shade.
