Shabby Chic Memo Board

Lately, I’ve found that there is too much purple in my craft room.  Geez, I never thought I’d ever say that.  I’ve found that by having color in the room, it distracts me when I’m creating.  I’ve been slowly changing the items that are colored & replacing them with white.  Here’s one of the first projects that I changed.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Luck of the Irish Sign

If you’re looking for an easy way to add a little Irish decor to your home for St. Patrick’s Day, this is it.  It’s simple enough for the Wee Ones to do, but looks like it was purchased instead of the usual kid’s crafts.  Adults can really get creative with this project, too.

St. Patrick’s Day Sharpie Plates

I’ve been wanting to make Sharpie plates ever since I saw them on YouTube a couple of years ago.  And when a very special girl gave me a set of new Sharpies for Christmas, I had to do this.  (Thank you, Amanda)  Making special plates for St. Patrick’s Day seemed to be the right time to try this craft.  It was a little time consuming, but very relaxing.  It reminded me of when I was little & spent hours upon hours coloring in my coloring books.  I’m so happy with the results.  Here’s how I did it.

Canvas Clock with Bling

Here’s the latest project for my craft room.  A DIY Canvas clock… With Bling.
