But being settled brings time to get some projects done. I have been having a little fun in my new office, so I thought I would share with you!
My first project was some gifts I gave away for mothers day to my kids "other" mothers. I found a tutorial for these super cute momma bird necklaces, and knew between that and a super cute box, it would be a rockin' gift. I used Lori Whitlock's hello Summer paper collection from Echo Park and her cute necklace box file found here, then topped it off with a cute flower found here.
You can find the necklace tutorial here.
ok, next up to bat was a fun and simple count down. I have always wanted to make one of these, and never had the spot to put it, until now... so I grabbed an unfinished 12x12 frame, painted it turquoise, and inserted a 12x12 chalkboard. To top it off, a little vinyl countdown. I think its message gets changes once or twice daily, but it's all good. I guess they are excited about school getting out, because all of my kids have written schools out and changed the day number.... I even think it looks cuter with their hand wrtiting on it...
You can find the file for the countdown here.
ok, last but not least, I dressed up some pots for my front porch. I saw some pots on pinterest that had painted polka dots on them, and I thought I could do better than that, so with some out door vinyl, a couple of borders, a house number and a G - for Graham of course, I made my front entry so happy!
Just wish me luck keeping my plants alive for the summer!
Have a great week!
