It is “My Life in Arts n Crafts” DT Tuesday already!

Yes along with more product, more post so here we are with a little jute ribbon inspiration from My Life in Arts n Crafts Store.  Today I am going for a little home decor, using the jute ribbon again, it is so pretty.  I wrapped this candle with it, with two different colors and stuck a brad abovethe bow to give it a little more interest, I also love perals.

 I just love my beautiful candle!


It looks very Valentinish as the holiday is approaching!  If you would like to do a little home decor like this, Jessi has some in her Etsy Shop ready to order, she also has other kinds of jute, twine and more.  If you would like to see more inspirational projects with her line she is only a click away at

Have a wonderful week everyone!


Here we are for Day 2 of “All about Green” Blog Hop

I am delighted that you have made it here or Back here today, weather you were invited through Facebook, or another online boards, it is a pleasure.

You should have arrived from  Zenita’s blog at  ScrappinwithZ our lovely host this month, just sit back and enjoy. There are still some neat projects, alot of inspiration and some are doing blog candy.

I am going to make mine short and sweet this month, I love banners so this is what I have made.  I have a co-worker who has a second job working at a nursing home.  She wanted to buy some Valentines treats from me but she said there is just hundreds of residents and can’t afford that!   So I told her I would make her a banner and donate it, hopefully it will cheer them up.  I didn’t want it to be to lengthy so I am not sure if the work “Lucky” was the perfect choice but it is still cheerful and fun for the holiday.

Using Plantin Schoolbook and Celebrate with Flourish cartridges in DS, made some cute little shamrocks on blocks. The picture doesn’t do it justice since my walls are such a dark color.  I do have the edges inked and a really cute pattern ribbon.

I hope you have a LUCKY St.Patty’s day or at least a happy Crafty day!

I love to hear your comments, and if you love my projects I can come to your inbox with no searching on the web to find that blog that had that “lucky” banner!

Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s day, hope to see you again before then!

Next stop will be with Pam at Scrapbook Flair

Welcome to the “All about Green Blog Hop” Day ONE


Green Eggs and Ham…

Welcome to the It’s All About Green Blog Hop March 3 and 4!!

Our fantastic hosts that are joining me on this wonderful hop is

going to show you what green means to them.

It’s finally March and the month of green whether it is St. Patty’s Day

or finally a hint of spring!!

  I am glad to see that you have found our hop, whether it was from an invite, subscription or just stumbled upon, I am glad you are here.  As you can see, Green is the theme so we are making anything from St. Patty’s day projects to where ever our imagination takes us to the green side. If you would like to start with our lovely host Zenita at Scrappinwithz, please take the time to go there and check out her wonderful project and she is giving away some goodies for blog candy!

I have to admit I was a little crazed trying to come up with a project since I was pretty crafted out after Valentines day.  I have only done a very little here and there, but I perked up again when I found this project on the net.  So I won’t lie and take ALL the credit for it!  I do love them though and this is my version of kids BINGO CARD GAME

I made my own template in excel so they would be bigger, than printed it out, matted them on a thick cardstock business card like material for sturdiness, and used a thick card stock for the rest.  Fiskar punches for the  circles.  Then they gave a template to cut out the call out numbers.  Easy and fun for the whole family!  I tried Shamrocks but I liked the circles better.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, don’t forget to sign up for all the goodies the girls are giving out throughout the hop.  I hope to see you tomorrow for my next “LUCKY” project that I made to donate to the nursing home that one of my co-workers work at in her second job.

I just have to show you that there is a new crafter in my house.  I posted yesterday how I made my 5 year old a card, so now she wants to make cards too.  She made Daddy a card, then made mommy one too to say I love you!

Oh Happy Friday…

Anyone want an touchscreen background, or a small desktop background?

I used the first one on the lock screen and the second one for the home screen.

It’s yours for free if you just say thank you or press the like button, so I know if anyone actually liked it or not.

It’s a little different, but I supose I will get use to it.  It will change to Easter soon anyway, lol

Have a wonderful weekend, I will be working on next weekend’s hop projects!
