"Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty...You may think you don’t have talents, but that is a false assumption, for we all have talents and gifts, every one of us. What you create doesn’t have to be perfect. Don’t let fear of failure discourage you. Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you—whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. If you still feel incapable of creating, start small. Try to see how many smiles you can create, write a letter of appreciation, learn a new skill, identify a space and beautify it."
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! It is great weather here, I think I am going to play in the sunshine:) Before I leave, I wanted to share a fun home decor project with you today.
I purchased a bunch of unfinished wood frames a few months ago. I like to have a few on hand so I can create a quick gift if I need one.
I cut down a 12x12 paper to fit the size of the frame and attached it with Mod Podge. I then created some rolled flowers with the extra paper scraps that I cut.
I used some of my favorite vinyl sheets from EAD Designs. I cut it using my Cricut Expression Cutting Machine. If you don't have a cutting machine, no worries. EAD Designs has a fun little design center on the website that lets you create what you need. How awesome is that?!
This frame was super easy to make and would make a great gift for someone :)
See you all next Saturday with another fun vinyl project!
Hi everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic St. Patricks Day. I hope you remembered to wear your GREEN ;) In honor of St. Patty's Day, I created a very GREEN project.
First off I found a piece of scrap wood I had laying around. I painted itGREEN and sanded the edges for a worn look.
I then dug through my vinyl scraps and found a small piece of vinyl. I like to save my GREEN and get as much out of a sheet of vinyl that I can. To make a shamrock, I used my Cricut Expression Machine. I then added a little sparkly GREEN shamrock sticker and some GREEN ribbon.
This project was super easy and fun to do. I made a little something to celebrate the GREEN holiday today and also saved a little GREEN by digging through my scraps :)
