Tutorial Tuesday!

Since my new addiction to Pintrest I've found soooooo many cool projects I wanna make and they include decor, recipes, sewing, crafts, etc.... Since it's officially fall, even though it's still hot as all get out here most days, I thought I'd show a fav tutorial from Wild Ink

I'm definitely wanting to do these!!!!!!! Here's how ya do it...

First, get cha some pumpkins! I would prefer to use the fake ones so they'll last for yrs to come but it's up to u! Get all sizes! I like the unique shapes! Gourds will be cool too!
Hers how to do the glitter ones...

It’s pretty simple. Brush the pumpkins with glue and then dust the glitter on!

Here's another options she did...

Wild Ink says, "Spray Paint. Possibly the easiest (and one of the cheapest) decorating sources ever. I used cans we had on hand already – I recommend keeping around black, white and an array of metallics – you’ll be craftier just by having them, I promise. Pictured above is Antique Brass and Copper. I did tape the stems to keep them from being sprayed."
And last but not least, her spray painted branches...lovely!!

Pretty self explanatory!!! :) great ideas huh??!!!
Happy crafting!! Check out

Educational Craft

Been a while, I know, since I've done a tutorial.
Today is....

Yesterday sheebee & I got bored so I thought, hmm what's a way I can do her lessons and keep her interested and have fun too???? I didn't create the activity idea but I did create my own way of doing it and it didn't cost me a dime! I used all left over craft supplies to do this and Shelby even helped!
Felt Board

Instant hit and only took maybe 30 min to do!
All you need is:
canvas of your choice in size
ribbons: wide ribbon and 1" for edges
hot glue
felt in all colors
Scrap paper/ fabric in width of canvas

Lets start!!!
Sheebee is helping!

Take your canvas and hot glue the large piece of felt (I used a yellow orange so the color felt I had would show up) around the edges NOT THE MIDDLE B/c it will bubble and not be smooth.
Then where your canvas is still visible; the edges, take your ribbon,I used wide ribbon so it would wrap around the canvas edge but it's not necessary b/c I used 1" wide ribbon to cover the canvas edges, take and glue and wrap your wide ribbon around and cover the white canvas.
Do the same on all 4 edges. Then I took my 1" wide zebra ribbon and glued it to the edges to cover imperfections and glued a piece as a hanger to use for display.

Then I took a piece of scrap paper, you can use fabric if you want, and make a pocket to house your felt pieces for your lil one on the back. I glued the two side edges and just tucked the bottom into the canvas.

I made mine a lil too tight but it still works.
I cut out shapes in all colors and am working on letters and #s. Animals would be fun too! Mom had a great idea to use sheebee's flash cards and have her find the felt animal that matches the animal on the flash card.

This is such a simple and fun project b/c it's simile enough that even the youngest can play and there not mess involved!!!

Happy learning!!

Here's another idea from yesterday's post too

Oh and featured on

Natsprat today is one of my favorite tutorials she's done! It's NO SEWING REQUIRED!! I also love it b/c Shelby's bedding is the same as hers!

New items for MusicFest

As you've read I'm frantically prepping for MusicFestOct.7-8th and after cutting out 15 diaper bags, 8 duffle bags and making 7 bows I decided to try my hand at some of the recent popular hair clips that are also being worn on headbands for babies, kids, teens and mommies! I love them and thinking of doing a lot of these!

Also, I've been introduced to Pintrest and I'm addicted!! I just figured out how to add my own pics! Heehee!
