Past & Present Projects

I apologize for the crummy pictures.
I have put myself on a self imposed ban from taking
pictures for our Crafty Sister blog
because as you can see, my pictures are lame.
Especially when I try to snap a quick picture before they head out the door.
Can you guess what I'm going to get with my tax return?:)

I thought it would be fun to just show a couple of projects from 
the last 6 months that I actually managed to snap a quick shot of.

Above is a BSU Broncos piece that some kind parents
were making up for their son's room!
I did these letters for some cute kids that got married this summer.
The phone was so fun to do and I loved the est. 2011 on it.
These 2 are some fun ones I did~notice the Fall is in the same font as Call above.
Who can resist curly fonts?  Not me~I love em'!
This picture is atrocious but they were so pretty in person.
These were made for a gal to hang above her bed
and they were glittered to the hilt.
I wanted to keep them classy and didn't want to cover
up the pretty scroll work.
These are done in the same font as the Kelly wedding letters I did earlier this year.
These are keyholed in the back for easy hanging.

These bad boys were really fun and a bit hard to do
but totally worth it.
Aren't they great!
Here's the Kelly font again~
I got my router out and had fun with this plaque edge too.
Here's more of a boy version of the plaque.  Nice and manly right?
I'll have to say I really enjoy what I'm able to do
and even more so I love to help others personalize each project.
It is so much fun!
On a very sweet note, I got an email a couple of weeks ago
from a concerned follower of our Crafty Sister's blog.
She had noticed on Etsy that someone was not only selling the exact same designs
that I had but was even using my pictures.
She thought I should know what was up.
I seriously just cried that morning because this gal,
a stranger I didn't even know, was looking out for me.
It touched my heart so much!
I replied to her that I did know~that the gal ordered from me and sold
her things across the country and it was just easier for me to
let her use my pictures than worry about taking new ones.

I seriously feel so grateful for all of you and 
your loyalty and support for me over the years.
I have felt like it hasn't been a business relationship
but that I have met some of the most wonderful people
and made amazing friends through my love of crafting.
Thank you so much!

Also thanks for being patient with my lack of posts.
Once I get done working on Crafty Sisters
I'm about spent.
But hey, Spring is almost here!
I can't wait for my tulips and daffodils to come up!
And you know how I love me my Spring/Easter crafts!:)
T-1 month till the Spring boutique....better get to work!

SWAK Wood Letters

I've always wanted to do some SWAK letters
and finally got around to it!
I really wanted a fun playful font and
used some of the gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper
that we used over at Crafty Sisters for a fun 
Valentine banner.  My pictures don't do it justice!
I used some of our Meyer Imports German Glass Glitter
for the lips, which turned out quite delicious!
Very fun!
I also finally used the last of my paper
to make up a couple of sets of Be Mine letters.
I absolutely loved these,
probably more so because I got to use
my Dr. Pepper cans to adorn them.

I tried searching all over last night for anywhere that might have
any of this paper left and I came up empty handed.
Anyone got any ideas of where to look?
It's Vintage Valentine by Fancy Pants Designs.
I love this paper!

I'm thinking I might just surpass anything Shamrock-ish this year
because I get so excited to do Spring crafts.
What is it about those colors and bunny rabbits that make me so giddy?
It is by far my favorite time of year,
when the tulips all start coming up~I love it!
Right after Christmas we had an unusually warm couple of days
and I headed outside and planted 130+ bulbs
that I picked up for 75% off this fall and didn't manage
to get them in the ground until then.
I'm looking forward to a glorious show this year,
and yes, they have nothing to do with wood
but I promise I'll share the pictures!
Happy February Friends!:)
