Baby Cradle

Baby cradle we made for our grand daughter.
We surprised our daughter with this just shortly before our baby girl was born.
Her daddy was real good at keeping it a secret.





Personalized Name Sign for Childs Door

Cute frog personalized door sign I made for my grand daughter.
I used a scrap piece of wood,  craft paint,  ribbon,  premade wooden frog ,
my Cricut machine to cut the letters out for her name. I put a couple coats of
modge podge over the entire sign.

Shhhh Baby Sleeping

I am very proud of this one. I made it for my daughter for her to give as a gift to her mother-in-law. She keeps her grand babies a lot and I noticed one day she had a piece of paper hanging my the door with baby sleeping on it, so I got to thinking and this is what I came up with.
I used ceramic tiles, my Cricut, vinyl. I glued ribbon down the back in 3 places to hold it straight and used the center ribbon for the hanger. Sorry the picture is not that great...I will learn to take better pictures of my 'crafties'

Christmas Balls to Cherish


 Christmas balls I made for each of the grand babies. I used my Cricut, vinyl, Elmer's glue and glitter.
I hope it is a keepsake that they all cherish for a long time.





Inspirational Decor

I made this for a very special friend of mine. I felt the saying fit her just perfect for what she was going thru at the time in her life. She told me that she reads it often and just loves it. I made it using my Cricut and vinyl and a small ceramic tile (Lowes)



I made this one for a friend at work for her birthday.
Very simple to make but yet so elegant of a gift.
I put a ribbon hanger on this one.

Sock Monkeys

Sock Monkeys that I made for the Grand babies for Christmas 2010.





This one I made for Ethan, my soon to be son-in-law.
He just had to have one of his own.

Frog Diaper Cake

This is a frog diaper cake that I made for my daughter for her baby shower.
I put little trinkets in the tube that I used for the center. They were things that she can use for the babies scrapbook.


     As a surpirse I rolled money (dollar bills) in each diaper on the lower layer.
     I remember my daughter calling me the day she took the cake apart and found the money.
     She liked the little added touch.

Getting Started

I am about to start trying this blogging thing. I really love looking at and reading others blogs. I get all kinds of inspiration and ideas from other bloggers. I will be starting to put all my crafties on here once we get settled in our 'big move' and I get my crating stuff all set up again. Until then I am just going to cruse the blogs and find all the inspiration that I can.
