Some of my Fav’s…

March is already over! April is just around the corner, can you believe it!? This last month has been busy, but when do I not have a month that is NOT busy, right? I had the opportunity to get quite a bit of crafting, scrapbooking and some jewelry done too! Two of my favorite’s to work with right now…Canvas & vinyl and photo jewelry…There is so much you can do and create. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them.

While at Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton, CA I revisited one of my favorite booths – Craft Fantastic! I love how crisp and clear photos just pop out of these glass bubbles.  I picked up this little cascading flower necklace and added the charms of my beautiful daughters…the possibilities are endless on what you can create.  Honestly, this picture does not do this justice!

My sweet friend at work, Melissa is having her first baby boy in the next few weeks. I’ve seen so many great canvas pieces on Pinterest lately, I knew this would be a great gift! Not to mention having all girls, I couldn’t wait to create something for a little boy.  I grabbed some 12×12 canvas at Michales, added three coats of acrylic paint. Next I added on layer of modge podge (best product ever!), let it dry for a few hours – overnight is bettery…then using my Silhouette I cut out the baby subway art.  The best part! I was able to modify the image and add the baby’s name for a more personal touch.

Isn’t that Pinteresting!!

In case you missed my “Pinterest” debut…here it is! I find so much inspiration from around the web, Pinterest keeps it simple and organized.  As crafty and scrappy as I am, Pinterest has also helped around the house!

I have to thank Julissa Ortiz with Good Day Sacramento for coming over and visiting. We both agree, Pinterest is very addicting, so if you are not on Pinterest, you need to be – but fair warning… you will be hooked!

Keep an eye out for the projects I started this morning. They will be on my blog later this weekend!

Back to School

It’s that time again, school for Sofia and Ella is about to start in 5 days.  Our summers go by faster and faster every year. We have a 4th grader and a 1st grader – it’s so hard to believe!

This year is a little special for me. Let me try to sum up the back story…I had the opportunity when I was younger to coach a 16 and under fast-pitch softball team. On my team was the daughter of a great family, I had the pleasure to start  my professional career with her dad.  Fast forward two years ago and to my wonderful surprise the young girl whom I coached is teaching at our daughter’s school! This year, I am so, so, SO excited she will be teaching Sofia’s 4th grade year. I have no doubt tears will be flowing come Monday morning.

With the help of Pinterest, she asked if this wall art could be made – one look at it, piece of cake!  Here is our version  – Fonts are a little different and I decided to add bling to the canvas, because really, who doesn’t LOVE bling! Not only do I love bling, but after completing this project I LOVE vinyl on canvas…it truly looks amazing…  to help seal the project, add a couple of layers of Modge Podge and you are set.  Feel free to add any comments or message me with questions.

A first for me!!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! 

For everyone who voted and supported this contest on my behalf, THANK YOU!! I really could not have done it without you.

I came in 2nd place in the Glue Dots Pinterest Contest and will be receiving a prize pack worth at least $75.  I am so excited I can’t stand it. One of my goals for this year has been to be more active with my craft and passion. I am still getting this blog thing down and will try to be more active as it is obvious I am slacking a bit in this department. There is so much I want to do and share I need to find time to get it all done…like I have all this free time, right?

This is my first craft contest I have entered and definitely won’t be my last. Keep an eye out here on my blog for the Thank You’s I will be sending to everyone who showed me love and support. It is so much appreciated.
