On sunday, we came home from church, and I was making dinner, and went out to the garbage can. She wanted to go out and so I left the door open while I was right there with her. As I worked around the kitchen, she was busy moving everything off the pantry shelf to outside. She would take an item at a time to the outside. Finally, I dared to look and see what she had done. This is what it looked like. She loves to line things up. it was so funny.

I saw this darling idea over at http://undermypolkadotumbrella.blogspot.com/2011/01/personalized-value-letter.html and loved it for young women birthday's for 2011. We printed the words (name and value words) right onto burlap. It turned out so fun! Another woman in the YW's made cute bows for their hair and they hook onto the board for storage and decoration.

We had a blast last night at our ward party. Because there is now no activities committee, the first party fell in the lap of the young women leaders. So, with my board, we planned an adult's only dinner/dancing party. The theme was "Don't tell my heart my achy-breaky heart" (western theme). We have the corbridge's in our ward who dj and they were superb! Justin was a great sport and danced the night away with me! We have never danced together, and it was so fun for us!Another person in the ward drew this backdrop for pictures for each person/couple. I loved that!We love how the centerpieces turned out! Flowers in boots! One person turned to her husband and said, "i bet you'd have never guessed flowers would be in your $300 boots!" She was right and it was adorable.

Here's my last project until after the big LOVE day next weekend. The fun thing about this project, is it's not vinyl, but a combo of paint and stain to make the desired effect.I applied a coat of cream paint on a ragged piece of wood -- very rustic-- then, once dry, I put on vinyl and stained over the entire piece of wood, vinyl and all. I then peeled off the vinyl and ta-da....finished project! So easy and a really fun look.

Justin & I found this card catalog at D.I. a few months ago. I wanted it so badly, and thanks to Kevin & Shelly for their help transporting it, I am now the proud owner. This week, I decided I was done with the sticky notes telling me what each drawer held, and so I pulled out my vinyl cutter and jazzed it up! I am in love again with this D.I. find!
I saw this idea online and decided to try it. The blocks were all painted red, then a pink layer on one, and white on the other. I then sanded them down so the red showed through. The red block i smeared white paint across it. I made a set for a good friend and have the other sitting in my house.
My sister is very musical, and everything about their family is musical, so I decided to create these pieces for her birthday next week. The first idea came from watching a person on Studio 5 (local news/craft show). It works perfectly for her family.I saw this quote and loved it. This is her all the way. Happy Birthday Monica!
