Busy, Busy, Busy!

Apparently once the word got out that Kate and I had enough spare time to make crafts, people decided to gang up on us and give us LOTS and LOTS of other things to do. ;) This time of year is crazy enough, but we both also got new (much more time consuming!) responsibilities at our church. We're excited with these new opportunities, but - WOW - are we busy.

In the madness, I decided I needed a moment of craftiness to help get me through the day. Remember the monogram wreath idea we had posted a couple of months ago? I've been dying to do one of my own. How do you think it turned out?

This was soooooo simple. I bought the letter M from Hobby Lobby for $1.49 and then mod podged paper on (FYI - the paper came from the same paper pack that I used to make the Gratitude Sign). Then I roughed up the edges and added a little walnut stain. I really love this new addition to our home. Now I just need to find a little more time in the day. Hmmmmmm... Until next time - Later!

Peace Block

I am so excited about this latest block.  It looks so beautiful with the white lights softly glowing on my mantle.  Plus, I am so excited how the ribbon and the vinyl match so perfectly.  With the lettering and dove cut out and the rest of the vinyl left to color the block, it makes the message so clear to read.  If you love it as much as I do, you can make it with all the pieces in the kit for only $25, or you can gather them together and buy the vinyl only for $6, or vinyl and ribbon for $11.  I know you will love it as much as I do when it's sitting in your home!
