Latest quilt!!

Busy Busy!!

So today has been a craft day!!  Yay!  We had some family pictures taken while my whole family was here for Christmas.  We finally got the cd of pictures on Sunday, so I had some prints printed, and today I played with them!  I'll post some pictures of them once they are 100% done.  They're still a work in progress.

But what I'm really excited about are these!!

It's been a while.  I've been kind of crafted out because of the holidays...but I went to the store yesterday and saw all of the adorable Valentine's Day decorations.  It got me excited to start crafting again.  Actually the thing I most want to do is quilt!!  I have this adorable valentine's fabric that I started a year (if not two years) ago.  My goal: finish the quilt for valentine's day!! I'll let you know how it goes!!

Silhouette Cameo!!!

It's here!!  My cameo finally made it's way to my front door!  Here are some of the projects that I've been working on with my Cameo!  Keep in mind I've NEVER worked with Vinyl before! There was definitely a learning curve...(see the "of the" on my Inn Crowd project and you'll see what I mean!  haha)

Picture Frame Fun

I always admire crafters who can take picture frames and make them into something creative and wonderful!  Like this adorable Christmas door hanger (not to mention the adorable paper mache ornaments!) by Blue Cricket Design:

"Are you part of the inn crowd" Possible Vinyl

I saw this on Facebook by Anne Call House.  This would make a great vinyl something or other!

Another Advent Calendar Update!

Today was my day off, hence all of the finishing of projects today!  This advent calendar is extremely easy and I found it to be a really fun project!  It was one of those projects that I worked on while watching TV or a movie.  Just relaxing and fun!  Here it is:

A big thanks to Makoodle for the tutorial!

Accent Gem Rings

Today on Pick Your Plum, the deal of the day was ring blanks.

This is another one of those crafty projects that I have seen around, but just haven't tried my hand at.  I was browsing around on pinterest to see what others had done with their ring blanks and realized that a lot of people put flowers on them like this:

Tile Coasters Project

So I previously posted that I've wanted to make some tile coasters of my very own!  I've heard about tile coasters for years now but have never done any.  Let me just say these can make really easy, cheap, and personalized gifts (wedding, christmas, anniversary)! I made 12 for under $2 a coaster.

Here is my completed set!  

I LOVE the coasters made from family pictures.  Like these ones from Oopsey Daisy:

The possibilities are endless!  This was a really fun and relaxing project!

Cranberry Orange Bread

I work at a bakery...all day I make yummy goodness in the form of pies and baked goods.  I grew up making banana, zucchini, and pumpkin chocolate chip bread (and make them at work at least once a week), but I've never made cranberry orange bread!  That is until today!
