A couple of weekends ago, my sweet angel turned two and we had a puppy themed birthday party.  Since Liam spent his first birthday in the hospital and we had to cancel his party, I decided to go all out this year.  Puppies/dogs are his favorite right now, so it was settled.  I started planning the party about 3 months before so I could take my time planning, crafting and building doghouses.

I got the idea for these puppy invitations from Pinterest but I changed it up a...

You may remember the Mod Podge collage I made for my friend Jillian's baby shower last year.  Well this past weekend was her sister Christina's baby shower,  so I made another collage.  I used the same method as before but just changed up the design a bit since she is having a girl.

Read how I made it here.  Oh and if you like the paper I used for the grass, you can make your own at Japonizer.  Japonizer is a...

On Sunday I attended a baby shower for my friend Sarah Staggers.  Since I had so much fun making the onesie for my friend Christy's baby shower, I decided to give it a go again.

This was the first time I have every stenciled on anything and I am hooked.  The worst part is cutting out the stencil, but once your stencil is cut out, the rest is quite easy. Supplies Needed: Freezer Paper (Not wax...

This past Saturday, Nikki Ballard and I had a booth at the Cotton District Arts Festival.  This was our first year to have a booth and we had a blast.  It was a pretty day, everyone was nice and complimentary and we sold more than we did at the Prairie Arts Festival.  Overall it went really well and I am very proud of us.  Our booth was really cute but unfortunately all of the photos I took were horrible.  I am so thankful that Ben snapped a few here and there.

Happy Valentine's Day!  I have been having so much fun making Valentine's Day cards for my friends and family. Here are a few of the Valentine's Day Cards I made this year: After scanning the vintage early readers for cute images, I used my sewing machine to sew the images onto cardstock that I had previously folded and scored using my bone folder. Next I glued patterned paper to the inside of the Valentine using rubber cement to cover the exposed string and make the Valentine look more neat and clean. For this Valentine, I printed off  a Niagara Falls WPA poster image...
