Rag wreath

I made this wreath from some left over fabric I had from some other projects.  I cut them into strips and tied them on a wire hanger and added a ribbon bow.  I really love the way it turned out.

Dry erase menu board

I have seen menu boards online and thought it would be good to have a menu made for the week.  Just write it on there and I know what I'm going to have for dinner in advance.  I have used it for the past 3 days and I have stress free dinner planning:)  Pretty cute:)

I bought a wood frame from the dollar store, I painted and lightly sanded and stained it.  I then found some scrapbook paper I liked (it will help me write straighter:) and cut out little circles and put a letter sticker in the middle.  I bought a star cut out and painted, sanded and stained and added the menu letters.

My family is already reading each day to check whats for dinner:)

I added my crows in the center of my wreaths!  Too cute:)


My three pumpkins;)

I saw these on http://craescreations.blogspot.com/2010/09/gotta-love-pumpkins.html and had to try and make them:)  I bought the wood at Home Depot and they cut it into pieces for me (I have enough to make 2 more sets!)  I then painted, sanded, ditressed (felt good) and applied some stain.  After that I drilled a hole in the top and glued a cinnamon stuck in the top, tied some raffia on the stem, added a leaf I cut from felt and wrapped some ribbon around it that I found at the dollar store.  I have them in my entry way and I think I want to add some more decoration around the bottem but not sure what yet.


Dryer duct pumkin:)

I saw this cute little pumpkin on http://www.houseofhepworths.com/2010/09/09/theres-a-pumpkin-in-my-dryer-oh-wait/ and just loved it!  It is made from dryer duct!  I bought my duct at Walmart for a little over $5 and cut it in half to get two pumpkins.  Some spray paint,
glue, cinnamon stick and some raffia finished it up.  I put it on a milk can next  to my front door.

Harvest Vase

I made this little harvest vase for my table.  I will be adding more around it, but this is the start.  I bought all the items at Dollar Tree and I am really happy wih how it turned out.   I used 2 floral picks, 1 pack of leaves, 1 vase, 1 pack of gourdes and ribbon (which will also be used for another project **score** lol).  Grand total of $5.00!

Whimsy Cake

I loved, loved, loved making this cake! I just love the colors and how delicate it looks. I also got to use my Cricut Cake so that was also fun. All the accents are gumpaste and then dusted with luster dust.

Tip Junkie handmade projects


Batman....ahhhh my nemesis! LOL! This cake was for a fellow classmate of mines 5th birthday. I like the finished look of the cake, but boy my Batman did not want to cooperate in the beginning:) He is made from modeling chocolate.


Taylor's Princess duckie smach cake:)

I made this little duckie smash cake for my friend Erin's daughters 1st birthday. I carved it out and made the head from rice krispie treats. I made 5 tiara's out of royal icing, because I was so worried they would break. I used the first one with no troubles. This is one of my favorites cakes! She is soooo cute:)
