 Wall hanging bow holder:

I love when I come up with a creative idea, and it looks just as good when finished as it did in my head. Most of the time I have a vision in my head, but I can't exactly make it work the way I envision it. So, I am really proud of myself (that's a huge thing for me) and I really LOVE how this turned out. Just makes me want to finish decorating the girls room. I did find some awesome ottoman type things at Ross that would have been perfect for their room because the ottomans had a lid where I can store all of their toys and it was a damask fabric on top. Do ottomans have lids or am I totally off base about that? Ha! It doesn't matter, all I can say is it was soooooooooo cute!Maybe some day!

AFTER:






****************************************************************************

This is my most recent creation. I seriously love it. Brandon is not a fan of it, but I really am loving it. I told him that I am going to be starting a new trend! haha! I bought this bracelet at Rue 21 for $2.00 and I already had that fabric that I tied my bracelets with. I love cheap inspiration! :)

Whoopie pies!



Ice cream cone cupcakes with skittles on top!

*******************************

Just some fun bows I made.



**************************************


*************************************
My decorated eggs from the wood connection!



Brandon's graduation decorations I came up with. Except for the chocolate caps. Those I got from a random site on the internet. Don't you love how I made the candle holders into caps? I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with that idea all on my own. It's not very often I come up with a unique idea, so I get pretty excited when I do!!!





I paired my round necklace with another necklace I had. I love the look of it! 


I bought these canvas squares at the dollar store and re-decorated them how I wanted it. I just used paper to decorate these!




Yet again, another fun bow I made!


I found these decorative letter frames at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $1.20 each and they just so happened to have Gracey's initials. I was pretty happy about that! I just need to change the blue background look and then it will be complete.















***************************************

Candy bar bouquet!! (THIS WAS NOT MY ORIGINAL IDEA)
I made this for Brandon for our anniversary, made one for my brother as a Thank you and made one for my Aunt and Uncle as a "Sorry for your loss." I love this idea because you can use it for just about any occasion and everybody loves chocolate. So you can't really go wrong with this!!!




***************************************

I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY "SENSES" gift basket. I got this brilliant idea from http://www.thedatingdivas.com/

Fun Necklaces/ bracelets that I have made. :)


**************************************

Homemade chocolate covered strawberries



Idea from http://www.thedatingdivas.com/
I made it for Brandon for Valentines Day! He really liked the idea and I LOVED it!


Idea came from http://www.loveactually-blog.blogspot.com/

I made these for my family members for Valentines day! These were so easy to make but so fun! I love making things like this and giving them away to others! It's so much fun for me!




Valentine wreaths


******************************************
Valentine rice crispy treats! These were so fun to make! I was in charge of a playgroup for Valentines Day and I made these with some sugar cookies as well as had the kids decorate their own Valentines wreaths and bags to put their Valentines in. It was such a fun playgroup!





**************************************
See, I again cannot remember where I got this idea from. I think it was from Ucreate. Anyways, I love it! If you don't know me already I LOVE LOVE LOVE Valentines Day! It's my favorite holiday!


**************************************
Audrey's butterfly cupcake cake! She loved it!



*************************************
I used one of those styrofoam cones to make Audrey's hair stay up with her Cindy louwho costume! I am convinced that she is the cutest darn Cindy Louwho out there!!!





I made Gracey's fairy wings out of a wire hanger and nylons! It was pretty simple!


************************************
Just another cute bow I made for my girls!



********************************

$1 apron! I bought this place mat at Dollar tree and made it into an apron for Audrey. She loves it so much and still uses it to this day!! :)



****************************************
You can't really see the detail too much of these bows, but I made those for Audrey. I really just wanted to post this adorable picture of her. :)



*********************************
I think I got this idea off of a commercial. These were really fun to make, but kind of a little messy for kids. That's okay, they had fun making them!


********************************

I got this idea from another awesome blog. I usually never celebrate St. Patricks day but I thought this would be a nice surprise for Brandon during that day. I put it in his backpack for him to notice while he was at school. He loved it!!



*****************************************

I made this for Brandon for Valentines one year. He loved it! I got this idea from "Love actually," but created it my own way. I loved how it turned out!





*****************************************

Nursing cover:

This is just a simple nursing cover rather than the carseat/nursing cover all in one. I loved how this one turned out!



**********************************

I LOVE Valentines Day! You will see a lot of Valentines decor from me! Just giving you a heads up!!



*************************************

Carseat Nursing Covers

When I made these carseat tent, putting flowers on it was a unique idea. But now you see it everywhere! I also made my carseat tent into a nursing cover as well. Again, at the time, I looked everywhere and nobody had created this yet. I made this clear back in October of 2009.










*********************************************
I made Audrey her own little red riding hood cape. She was little red riding hood for Halloween and needed a red cape. Doesn't she look so cute?!



********************************************
These are just some fun pillows that I made to spice up our old couch. It's amazing all of the different creative ways to embellish a pillow. I love it!


*************************************
I was pretty happy about my little Valentine tree. I bought it on clearance at Roberts on the after Christmas sale. I also painted those hearts myself. I loved how it turned out.


*******************************


This is one of my favorite Valentines Decorations that I have personally made. I still use it to this day!!





************************
I decoupaged this plate a while back when Audrey was 2 months old. It was a little hard doing it on a plate but I think it turned out pretty cute and it helps that there is a pretty dang cute baby in that picture who somehow turned 3 on me. :)
