Little Apron

I was at my local dollar store and I saw these aprons. They had them in all different colors, and of course, I had to get one in my favorite yellow! I didn’t really pay attention to the size, so when I got it home and got it out of the package I was a little surprised that it was a child’s size! No worries; I will just do something else with it. I got on my Cricut program and designed this cute “little Artist” graphic! I think it turned out very cute!

One of the challenges was that this apron is 100% polyester and says not to iron it. I was worried that it would melt under the heat. And I didn’t want to get anything stuck on my press. So I put a thin towel under it, between the heat pad, and then another towel over the top of it. I also only heated it for 15 seconds! It worked great!

 

The HTV is a shiny purple! The pictures don’t do it justice! lol lol lol

 

 

If you know a little artist that needs this darling apron, it is for sale!! $4.00 And if you need more, I can have them made up in a hurry!!

A Birthday Gift

Hello!

My daughter-in-law’s birthday was in May.  With us living so far apart, it is hard sometimes to know what to get her. This year Alex said they had seen some of those decorative blocks and she liked them. So, I decided to try to make her some.  They had only seen the ones with one side done.  But I thought I would make her some multi-sided so that she could have them out all year-round. I didn’t make them just holiday-themed; there are a couple of more generic sides. The blocks are small (not quite 2″) and that was a challenge to find things that fit. I enjoyed the way they turned out!  I hope she likes them as well!

 

She is a big Disney fan so I pick up anything Disney when I find it cheap! Her husband told me that Ariel is the princess she was into at the moment. I’ve had this sticker for a while and I used it to make this card.  I love how the colors came together and I love the green paper!

Mother’s Day

Hi, Everyone!


I got an EasyPress for Christmas and hadn’t been able to use it yet. I decided to make my girls matching shirts for their girls as a Mother’s Day gift! I found a giraffe for Jess and MaryLu and a sloth for Ashley and Hope. It was so much easier and quicker to do them with the EasyPress than it is to do it with an iron!!! They turned out sooooo cute!!! I was so excited to see their reactions! The girls liked them, too!! It was so fun to see Hope point out the nose on her mom’s shirt and then the nose on her shirt! The only way it could have been better was if we had gotten to be there in person!

Stars and Stripes

Hi, Friends!

I wanted to do a Fourth of July craft and saw something similar to this. I wondered if I could make it two-sided!! I’m really happy with the way it turned out! I hope you are too!

Steve cussed when I mentioned glitter, but I figured out a way that it didn’t cause much mess. I carefully put some glitter in a small ziplock baggie. I painted the star white and while the paint was still wet, I gently pressed each side into the pile of glitter in the baggie. Then, I tapped it off while still in the baggie. After it dried completely, I painted over the glitter with glue. The glitter isn’t coming off!!!

I love the fact that this is two-sided because it looks good in a window from the outside and the inside! Also, the striped side is general enough that you can show your patriotism all year long!

I do have supplies to make more of these! If you would like to come and make one just let me know! I am doing small (1-3 people) classes and can work it around your schedule! The class is $20 and I supply everything! If you don’t live close enough to come and do one for yourself, or you just want me to do it for you – the cost is $25. (papers may vary)

 

Thanks!
