My daughter just loves buttons. So we have been trying to find clever ways of doing stuff with them. This is completely experimental. These are magnets for my bulletin board. We are going to make some for hers too. Then I got these cute button like embellishments in the scrapbook isle of JoAnn's...they go perfect with my office. These are thumb tacks. Just thought I'd share.
Believe it or not, this was made with paint, wood and scrapbook paper. I buy a ton of scrapbook paper with the hopes of someday scrapping...never gonna happen. However, I get lots of use out of it by doing crafts like this. Gotta love that Cricut!
Kid Flops are now available! $20, custom colors. You pick your flip flop color and color scheme for your ribbon, and I'll hand make them. This pair shown with hair bow, $5.00. I am going to post these soon on Etsy, but I just wanted to put them on my blog first.
A little easter block sign I made. Distressed around the edges. These can be ordered from me...$4.00 per block. Custom letters. Custom colors. Distressed or not...you pick. These blocks lean, but thicker blocks would stand on their own and would be all squares. The thinner leaning blocks could also be attached with wood glue or hinges to make them stand. Extra $5.00 for attaching.
I saw these super cute little carrots in Pier 1 the other day. They really weren't expensive, but I thought it would be awesome if I could make them myself. I will have to say, I think they turned out pretty good. I have included the "How To" if you want to attempt it.
http://bettypagley.uppercaseliving.net Okay, anyone who is into the Uppercase Living thing, we are running Buy 2 Get 1 Free on every item we carry. That is a fantastic deal, and it's how I got most of the expressions in my own home.
Drop me a line and let me know if you want to order.
Okay, so I am finally going to do some crafting this week. I was in a total slump for the past couple of weeks, and I have been reading. Not a bad thing, but a kind of lazy thing. It has just been so cold and miserable, I have just felt like sitting around doing nothing.
So my first project of the spring is going to be a wreath. Super cute Easter wreath. I will post the pics. This is a fun project. Think Bella can help with this one.
For those of you who know me, I am FAR from plain and simple, as my blog title states. I am a stay at home mom of 2 beautiful and interesting children. Everyday is an adventure.
I craft to keep my sanity. Although, sometimes I think I may have lost it already! I don't have one exact thing that I like best...I do it all.
My motto..."I Can Make That"
