subway art

I am loving all the subway art I've seen online.
So I made some up for the holidays.
What an easy neighbor or friend Christmas Gift.
Just print it (these are 8x10), then put it in a cute frame. EASY
I think it would look so cute on a canvas too. (see here)

Lesson #36 lm2 Honesty

This is the last lesson before Halloween so I thought these were cute and festive.
I saw these Halloween Treat boxes HERE they even have printable step by step instructions.

It was a little bit of a stretch to tie these cute boxes into the lesson. But I think it worked out!

I think these would also be a cute treat to give neighbors, friends, or grandparents for Halloween!

Dry-erase board

What an easy way to "make" a dry-erase board
Supplies: Frame w/glass (I got mine at Wal-mart for $3), scrapbook paper or fabric cut to the size of your frame, and a dry-erase maker. Pretty simple but oh so cute!

(just put your paper or fabric in the frame instead of a picture)

I put the orange paper in mine for fall. You could change the paper for a whole new look with each season.

I added the vinyl "good job!" on the glass. What a fun way to remind your family they are doing a good job! Just keep it on your kitchen table and write a "good job!" for the day, ("good job" on your spelling test, "good job" on the delicious dinner), then erase with a paper towel.

I thought this would be a cute, cheap, and easy Christmas gift. Perfect for friends, YW, VT, neighbors, or family.

other ideas for vinyl: Good Job, Groceries, Reminder, weekly Menu, goals, or Thank You!

Camera Strap cover

If you sewed a "scrunchie" in the 80's-early 90's that's all you do for this cute cover.
I just added fusible fleece for a little comfort, and a ruffle for a little cuteness.
I really don't know how to sew nor do I claim to know how. So pardon my non-sewing lingo!

These instructions make sense to my crazy little brain, sorry if they are confusing.

fall pics

My cute friend E asked if would take some pics of her adorable little family. We are so lucky to have them as neighbors and friends. They are fun, smart, and NORMAL!! Thanks W family I had a great time.

jamberry Nails

My a-mazing friend and her 2 cute sisters just started their own business:
The nail shields are super cute, and affordable. Each sheet does about 2-3 sets of nails
(fingers or toes).
They are really EASY to apply yourself and each application lasts for weeks!
They are having a special right now: BUY 2 GET 1 FREE + FREE Shipping. There are so many cute designs to choose from.
I got a few of them to do for an activity for Young Womens. They are sooo excited!
These would be perfect for a little stocking stuffer, YW, or friend gift for Christmas.

here's how cute they look even on my ugly FRED FLINTSTONE toes
(these cute coral shields have been on my toes for 2+ weeks and still look great)

Called to Serve

R&R are brother & sister. They are both preparing to serve LDS missions. They needed a few headshots for their papers so I took a few pictures for them.

Halloween Pillows

What an easy way to add a little "holiday" to your home. Cute accent pillows. I saw a tutorial for this cute flower pillow and I've been wanting to make one for awhile.
I did mine in Pumpkin-y colors. I was suprised how quick it was to make (about 30-40 minutes)
I ♥ it!!

my mom found these cute Frankenstein pillows on clearance @ Target a couple years ago. So I "borrowed" them for my outdoor swing!

Halloween Decorations

I love decorating for the holidays.
I don't have a ton of Halloween Decorations, so I have a few projects in the works.
I have loved having this entertainment center. It was the 1st piece of furniture Kyle & I bought when we got married. I have painted it a few time so i don't get too sick of it!
