Hey guys! Hope you all had a great Wednesday I have a fun project to share today! I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long. I used a different paint method on this board and I love how it turned out so I am going to share it with you in my next post. So for now… Here is my board after it is painted and ready to go.
Hello U-Create readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today. It just so happens to be my first guest post and I'm still a little shocked that it's here at Ucreate, one of my favorite blogs!
I know some of you still have snow on the ground, but for us Floridians summer is already kicking into high gear. And summer means flip flops. Yep, we southern girls have 'em for everything: casual wear, evening wear, 'flops with heels, 'flops with big poofy flowers glued on...you name it.
Its kind of become a tradition of mine to make fairy houses around our yard. And while age 2 is still a little young for 100% focus on a project like this (she'd rather dig in the dirt), Lucy and I recently had fun spending a few days creating a potted fairy garden together. We used a wood bird house (you can find them for .99 at craft stores). We covered it with moss and twigs that we collected from the yard. I even created a door from driftwood that I wood burned. We decided to create the garden in a big pot so that we can also grow small plants so we filled a pot with dirt and then got to work creating our garden.

I'm not so into heart shaped boxes of chocolates or a dozen red roses, but I'm very much into these little guys. Valentines day is here, and my little ones need something to drop off with their friends... preferably something cute and little and filled with candy. I was remembering some little Christmas matchboxes we did when I was at the Kids magazine, so we revamped them for Valentine's day. inchmark - inchmark journal - my little&valentine

Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!) I haven’t felt like myself. But nothing like inspiration to wake one out of a reverie — or nightmare, in my constantly sick state. I came across these DIY Pantone chip magnets on How About Orange and wanted to do something similar.

I have more than one that I barely use).
paper lantern project for Make, Grow, Gather I was so happy to be asked to contribute an easy summer project as part of a series over at Make, Grow, Gather. I made some decorated paper lanterns using ones that we had left over from our wedding reception last summer. Remember that childrens craft that involves twisting small squares of tissue paper around the eraser end of a pencil, dipping that in glue and then using them to decorate something, usually a paper plate? I did the same thing, only larger.
I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying. Here, in order of appearance, are the places I referenced: paper candy instructions with pictures (this is the first place I saw this project) dogmestic with instructions and pictures photogeek pictures ugly green chair cute ladybug magnets – pictures with packaging threads at Glitter:onetwothree
