projects to do
Greetings and salutations! Scraps , here, with a fantastic technique two-fer from Alchemist Jo ! Jo: One of my favorite backgrounds is a blended paper background. I learned the basic technique from Mary Green when I took her online classes–” Your Vintage Gluebook ” and “Collage Coterie”–and have further developed it to suit my style.
Do you want to preserve your memories, remember the wonderful deeds of our Lord and have easy access to your photos? But you don’t have time don’t have all the necessary tools for scrapbooking don’t feel like you are creative enough don’t know where to begin Well, faithbooking can be as easy as 1,2,3! 1. Gather photos.
Easter's on the way, along with Spring and gorgeous weather. So are ya ready? Have you been putting all your eggs in one basket? I have..yep... along with candy, chocolate bunnys, jelly beans and suckers.
Have you all seen those cute crayon shadow boxes on Pinterest or somewhere else? What an awesome gift for a teacher! I've been busy making them, along with a rhinestone version for my daughter's dance teacher.
"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for." -Anonymous I love baby showers for first-time moms. Everything is opened with wonder, smiles, and a great appreciation. I like to make diaper cakes since they are practical, useful, and decorative.
I've been shopping for a backpack for my daughter for school (yes she is only going to pre -school but she needs a cute backpack, right?). I saw some backpacks at boutiques and got the idea for the one you see below. It cost me about $25 to make. I'm so excited how it turned out! Here is a picture of some of the supplies you will need- a flat front backpack (a pocket one will be harder), furry fabric, batting, E600 glue, embellishments such as rhinestones (I got a "G" for my daughter's initial), needle and thread, clothes pins, and ribbon or whatever else you want to put on the front. Don't laugh at my backpack choice, it was the only one I could find that was flat-front!
Here is a tutorial on how to make some flowers - there is another tutorial on how to make some different flowers just after this post. Both tutorials will suit both experienced and novice crafter so no matter how confident you feel, you can give it a go! To make these flowers you will need: scissors, pencil, compass and glue. These flowers took me around 30 minutes to make which included adding them onto a card.

Is it just me, or does it feel like the longer you live in a space, the smaller it seems to become? This is definitely the case for me. I thought I didn't need a dining room or office when I moved in, but recently had a change of heart when I came home to a bed covered in unsorted junk mail.
Do you remember this post where I shared my Sunday ABC's Book ? Well, Little Man is loving it!! And so am I!
I often make things that don’t turn out as planned and never make it to the pages of PB, then gulp a glass of champagne, send Jacinda numerous whiny emails, and stew over the wasted time and my own lameness.
