Wood Love Bird Cake Topper

This past weekend I attended a wedding for one of my dearest friends. She asked me to make the cake topper for her wedding cake. I gave her a few ideas, and she fell in love with the wood love birds with a message. I can’t take credit for this idea, and you may have seen these toppers around the web. The ones I have seen, the message is imprinted […]

Embroidery Hoop Name Banner

I love embroidery hoops, and I love seeing the different ways they are used. With all the inspirational embroidery hoop art out there, I decided it was time for me to get crafting with some hoops. So I did… and I made an embroidery hoop name banner for a friend! This was a fairly simple project. The most time consuming part was the hand embroidery.. and it didn’t help that […]

I'm Hooked on You {Purse Hook Valentine}

The Sharpie mugs I shared in the last post were supposed to be the last of this year’s Valentine’s Day ideas that I had for you. That was until I saw this purse hook in Target’s bargain section over the weekend. It wasn’t my first time coming across them, but it wasn’t until this last trip that a light bulb went off! If you haven’t figured it out by now, […]

How Do You Take Your Coffee? {Personalized Mugs}

Surely you have seen all the Sharpie marker on glass crafts out there. I’ve been wanting to give it a try for some time, and finally did! Apparently the Sharpie marker on glass craft is not a sure thing. There have been some hit and miss for some who have already experimented with it. Meaning, after being washed a few times [in the dishwasher in particular], it’s not necessarily permanent […]

For the Key to My Heart {Valentine Key Chain}

I am a sucker for cute.. and handmade cuteness even more. When I saw these too cute for words handmade “house” key chains on Flickr, I knew I had to make one… but a Valentine’s Day version instead! And of course I couldn’t resist including a cute phrase to go along with it… For the Key to My Heart. I know, I know… I can be cheesy sometimes. I’ll just […]

Props to U Valentine!

This school year, Suraya’s school decided edible treats were no longer allowed for school parties or for birthday treats. You can imagine my disappointment. I LOVE edible gifts and especially LOVE packaging them. The first thing that always comes to mind where school parties and birthday treats are involved are edible treats… sweet ones of course. I blame that on my sweet tooth. :P However I had to think outside […]

DIY Mini Domed Cake Plate & Cake Stand

I love thrifting. Especially when I find beautiful pieces like these wall plates and candle holder…. I could have just used them as they are, but what fun would that be? So instead I decided to do some simple crafting with them… a project that took about 5 minutes. Well, 5 minutes to make but I did have to wait for the glue to completely dry overnight. E6000 glue is […]

Winter Chalkboard Craft Party

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday celebration! The new year is just a few days away and I thought to end 2013 with a final post…. just because I’ve been anxious to share my craft party that was held this past weekend!! Well, it wasn’t just my craft party… I had two awesome co-hosts that helped me put it together with a few other contributors that helped make the whole […]

Coffee Filters & Old Book Pages

I tend to avoid doing projects that call for printing because my printer isn’t very nice to me. ;) However, I’ve been loving all the printing on old book pages projects that I’ve come across that I decided to just go for it. Nothing major. Just a small job that I figured that even my not so nice printer can handle. It really doesn’t take much to print on book […]

Paper Straw Snowflake

Today I have for you  an easy peasy winter craft. A craft that can be put together in a matter of minutes! A paper straw snowflake! All you need is two straws and fuzzy yarn to make these cuties. For the tools, you will need scissors and a hot glue gun. Start out by cutting two straws in half. I wasn’t anal about the halves being evenly cut. I guesstimated […]
