Hey ladies!! All my stitcheries are in the final - get them in the mail stage and I am finally breathing a little bit easy!
I am moving on to my next big project -
A baby shower!!
My sister is having a baby girl this summer and we are throwing her a shower!
I have been searching the Internet and all your fabulous blogs for fun ideas and I think we just about have it put together.
Now, I just need to get these babies that I made in the mail!

Let me introduce myself...my name is Tiffany, you can call me Tiff...
That's me and my three little darlings, I'm the one behind the chain. :)
My husband is gorgeous, supportive and a very hard worker. They don't come any better, and we are expecting our 4th child this fall.
I blog over here at Making the World Cuter. I hope you come over and say hi!
I love creating things. This mirror was a joint effort between me and my before mentioned super supportive husband.
One of my favorite things to make are napkin rings, here are a couple I have made that I really like, and they were practically free!
I love meeting new blog friends, and really hope you come by for a visit.
I have a party every Monday where you show off how you made the world cuter, it's super fun, and I would love to have you!
I'm also having a giveaway right now from Canvas Press, for a 16x20 canvas of your favorite photo-be sure to stop by and enter that!
Thanks again Amanda, it was fun!
Her grandson has had a really hard start to his life and was born with
his insides - on his outside.
He has endured surgery after surgery and they were finally able to get everything in its proper place - and then he got an infection.
Since he is hooked up to a bunch of tubes and they do a lot with his tummy -
he can only wear onesies that unbutton in the front and at the bottom -
this way they can just slip his arms in and don't have to go over his tiny head.
My mom found this sweet little white onesie for him -
but wanted something a little more on it -
so she asked me to put a "K" on it - since his name starts with a K!
A simple project - but a sweet one!
I think it turned out cute!
but you can find onesie applique tutorials all over the place!
I have some pretty good excuses - but really who wants to hear that -
we just want to see fun ideas, right!!
I actually have been crafting up a storm - a storm of family stitcheries that I am trying to get out the door and on their way for Mother's Day! I have a few finished and they have turned out so cute - but since I am stitching, stitching, stitching my little heart out
Sad. I know!
But soon I will be back with a bunch of things I will be making for my house - including all that cute fabric wall art we are seeing all over - I have wanted to do it for a couple years and I finally have the perfect spot!
I also have a Memorial Day/4th of July Wreath in the making - so cute!!
But in the meantime - I think it is time for a giveaway -
I get the most comments on my glazed art washer necklaces
You will have to supply your own scrapbook paper and ribbon -
only because you know what looks best on and in your house!
1. Leave me comment!
2. Leave a comment telling me you are a follower of my blog -
(you must be a follower to enter!)
3. Add my button to your blog and tell me you did so!
The giveaway will end on Monday, April 26th at Midnight (MST)!
and who doesn't want to make new friends!
My name is Amanda (good name eh?) and I am the crafty mind behind Every Crafty Endeavor! I have been a "mommy blogger" for about 3 years and started this blog in November 2009 to showcase projects that I have done - I thought of the name "Every Crafty Endeavor" because I wanted to be able to put whatever I wanted on here that I felt was crafty - I feel that being crafty covers more than just the "normal" everyday crafts -home decor, great recipes, sewing items, baby stuff - anything that we endeavored to make or decorate can be crafty!
I would love to stay and gloat about my blog some more but I am off to explore other blogs and meet new friends! I really hope you will join us!
Wow! I am so excited to be posting on Amanda's blog Every Crafty Endeavor!
My name is Kelly, and I document my creative endeavors over at my Make It Sparkly Mama. I am married to a complete sweetheart who is my best friend. And we have three crazy boys, ages 17, 8 and 18 months. I love them to pieces!
I started blogging about my projects at the end of January, however I have been crafting since the age of 12 or 13 when I secretly made my Mom a Santa for Christmas up in my bedroom. I got my first glue gun burn at that time too. I haven’t looked back and I am still getting glue gun burns.
One of my favorite projects that I have blogged about is my kid-friendly to-do cans!
Sometimes I just whip up something fast and easy, like this chalkboard soap dispenser. So easy and fun!
Every season brings something new to craft to decorate my home with! Right now I am still loving my little bunny wall hanging!
And finally one of my first projects for blogland that was inspired by blogland, my cordless heating pad.
Love blocks and my Lucky Blocks -
so I promised those cute girls a tutorial and here it is!
- 2x6 piece of wood
- Scrapbook paper
- Spray Adhesive
- Paper Glue
Sand and paint them your desired color.
Usually, I use a paint brush but this time I had white spray paint
on hand so I just took em' outside and sprayed em' down!
I just went to home depot and picked up some corner bead adhesive -
But you can use any adhesive you have.
It is pink so I can see where I have sprayed and where I need too.
I know it is pink but I have never had a problem with the pink showing.
Hint: Do this outside!!
Hint: Spray on a lot!!
Yes, yes, I cheat and use a cricket to cut out the letters -
but I have free handed it before and it looks just as good.
