Blog Archives - The love of recycling slightly used items in my home and life!
 
Inspired by a Pinterest pin I was inspired to make these cute pins for documenting the first 12 months of your babies life along with the wall hanging of the babies name and birth information.  

With the help of Shelly Wilson a Close To My Heart consultant and their new Cricut Cartridge I was able to cut the numbers, birds, white circles, roses, bow, It's a girl and the fan fold very easily. The remaining lettering was cut with my vinyl cutter.  

I can't wait to see the pictures each month of Madison!!!

New coat rack for my office.  I designed a stencil with the company name and established date and then stenciled it onto burlap.  Attached it with decorative thumb tacks.  Thank you Pinterest for inspiring me to become creative again!!!


 
I am ready for fall at my house after updating the wreath with new flowers I made slip covers for the chair pillows out of old drape material I purchased at a yard sale this summer.  This summer my pot with silk geraniums was stolen from the front porch....the first thing ever to be stolen from my house in 7 years.  So this time I drilled a hole in the pot and bolted it to the top of the table.  At least if they want it this time they will have to work at it haha!  
 
As my children have grown and started their own lives it has become almost impossible to get all the family members together for one family pictures.  So my solution to the problem was to create changeable scrapbooking photo mats, so each time I get a new picture of a family I can update my pictures on my office wall very easily by just clipping it on the page.  I have designed some of the frames with 2 pictures for each family so as new additions come along I can attach their pictures too.
