Halloween Project

I went to a craft show here in Utah and saw this cute little wood ghost cut out and decided I could do something really cute with it.  I modge podged some paper on to the wood to give it a cute design.  I then used My Pink Stampers Stamps to stamp the sentiment on it.  Added some ribbon that I bought at Michael's and wa-la!  I have a cute little ghost.  I made one for me and one for my Mom.  She loved it!

Happy Haunting!

I have been SO excited for Halloween!  I was anxious to add something to my home decor this year and was very excited to be able to do it with my cricut!

I decided to make something cute for my door so I pulled out my gypsy and cricut expression to see what I could come up with.  I think it turned out better than I had imagined.

Diaper Cake

Our most bestest cousin ever is due to bring a baby into the world very soon.  We had a baby shower for her and I wanted to spoil her so I bought the cutest little outfit and sleepers but that was just not enough.  I decided that I wanted to try and make a diaper cake.  I was blog hopping and came across one of my favorite cricut blogs,, she had the cutest diaper cakes in the world!  So, I decided to attempt to make one on my own.  This is what I came up with.

Didn't it turn out pretty dang cute???

Drum Roll Please....

I have officially started a new craft blog!

I am hoping that this blog with get the creative juices flowing out there in crafters land.  I want it to inspire others to create and craft.

Crafting has always been a favorite of mine but I tend to be critical of my work.  I have enjoyed seeing the changes I have gone through as a crafter and the skills I have picked up have come from blog hopping to some of my favorite crafting websites.  It makes me a little nervous to put my work online for the public to see but I do want to share my love for crafting.

The cricut crave started because of my very sweet and amazing husband.  I am so thankful for him and for the love and support he has for me!  He is so good to get excited about my different projects and tell me how talented I am.  I sure got lucky when I met him!  This is a shout out to my hubs!  Thank you for the cricut for my birthday!  Best Gift EVER!!!

Please feel free to follow along on my crafting journey!
