Graduate and Summer Projects revisited!

Hi All!  I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I have posted!  Where does the time go?  I am sitting here listening to some spiritually uplifting music and thought I would stop in and say hi! 

Life has been a little crazy here.  We are approaching the end of the school year for my kiddos (and me!).  I have a daughter that is graduating from High School in 2 weeks.  Can you believe it?  I can't!  She was my first baby and it's so hard to believe she is going off to college in September.  I need to make the most of my time with her!!
Here is one of my favorite Senior pictures of her.  Isn't she beautiful?  She is such a sweet person and has such a desire to do what is right.  I Love her soooo much!! 


Before I get too sappy, I wanted to share some past projects with you that are my favorites!  

I haven't made anything lately, but when this term is over, I am getting back to crafting!  Here are a few of my favorite projects:

Flour sack dishtowel with Fabric and Ric Rack
These are so great for gifts!  So easy and cute. Go here to see the tutorial.

Chevron Canvas Art
I love how this turned out and it makes me so excited for the Summer!  Find how I made it here.

Cuff Bracelets made with toilet paper rolls!
These babies are so easy to make and you get to recycle toilet paper rolls!  Here is the tutorial.

Little Girls Headbands
I made these for my nieces girls last summer for a family reunion.  So much fun to make and the girls LOVED them!  Tutorial here.

Handmade Posey Flower Card
This is one of my favorites!  People love getting handmade cards and this one is REALLY easy:)  Find out how to make it here.

Summer Watermelon Banner
I love Watermelons!  Here is how you can make an adorable Watermelon Banner.

I hope that some of these fun crafts were inspiring to you!  I had so much fun making them.  It feels great when you make something yourself.  Handmade is the best!!

Are you getting lots of sun where you live?  We have had some awesome Sunny days lately.  I am lovin' it!!


  1. What a pretty picture of your daughter, I can tell that you are so proud of her! Sending a first child off to college has got to be such a bitter-sweet time.

    I agree, handmade is the best--love all of your projects!
