Hello Spring Prep

Thursday, April 9th, 2015


It may appear that I have either A: Abandoned craft projects and this blog all together or B: Am still on the road headed home from Texas. Neither is actually true, but the first one seems kind of true. The truth is I was in “prep mode”. And “prep mode” is a stressful mode to be in therefore blogging once again fell by the wayside.

You see our first Spring sale at Willow Station (the awesome little seasonal pop up shop I’m involved in) was held two weeks ago so my every waking hour was spent painting, glueing and panicing.


Brought To You By The Letter ‘F’ (No It’s Not A ‘G’)

Penciled F

Well we’ve come to the Wedding Shower portion of “The Perfect Crafting Storm”. And this post is brought to you by the letter ‘F’. ‘F’ would be for ‘Friesen’ the last name of my friend JoAnn who was getting ready to throw a wedding shower for her soon-to-be daughter-in-law Rachel. Now if you all think I dive whole-hog into decorating for showers and the like, then you’ve never seen JoAnn’s work. Whew… I don’t hold a candle to her, I always tell her that her style is the classy version of my own.


Hooray for Hollywood

Prom CP 6

Hollywood came to Henderson, well at least for one night. Heartland held it’s 2013 Prom Saturday night and I was privileged to play a small part in it. This was my first time helping with Prom decorations, well unless you count twisting a few crepe paper streamers during my Junior year of high school for the “Activities Banquet”.


A Productive Day

Giggle Bluebonnets

Spring is fighting it’s way out! My random bluebonnets popped up overnight. At least I think they are bluebonnets, they just show up for a few weeks, make me smile, and then are gone again. They picked a glorious day to make their arrival. Eighty-two degrees on a Saturday! Woo-hoo! So glad I planned an outdoor activity for today.


‘Welcome to Hollywood! What’s your dream?”

Friday, April 26th, 2013


“Welcome to Hollywood! What’s your dream?” anyone recognize that movie quote? Well, my dream over the weekend was being able to recreate light-up marquee letters from bits and pieces of foam board, poster board and Scotch Tape, lots and lots of Scotch Tape.


Stone Letters

I’m in charge of decorating five different bulletin boards located at all of the entrances at my church. I’ve been doing it for several years and it has given me a creative outlet. I started out doing boards for the different holidays and seasons but found it was too hard to keep up. Of course my mother always tells me I could keep up just fine if I didn’t put so much work into them, but what’s the point of doing something if you don’t do it all the way? (more…)

Leftover Letters

Had some leftover letters so I actually made myself a sign.

Hit a new antique store in Georgetown, TX. Tons and tons of “smalls” (as the ‘American Pickers’ would say) Too much to even look at.


Homemade Holiday

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

While wondering how I was going to scrape together enough money to buy Christmas gifts this year a light bulb went off in my head “Why not make all of my gifts! Duh!” My sister has been telling me she would be happy with anything I made her for years but I always felt like I had to go the store bought route. This year I decided no matter what I was going to carve out the time to make my family their Christmas gifts. I completed about half of that goal. I made gifts for my two sisters, my Mom and my two nieces. The men proved a little more difficult, I could think of something to make for my Dad but that was about it. In the end I ran out of time and ended up buying a gift for my Dad and all the other guys.

The first project started out as an idea for my niece Morgan who was recently married and living in her first home, I decided to help her decorate it. An image on Pinterest had caught my eye and I decided to do something similar. First I had to call her new husband in Kansas and beg for some barn wood, which he basically just went out to one of his barns and pried from a wall. Morgan then brought it to me on one of her trips home not knowing it would just be returning to her house after Christmas.
