Gettin' Crafty on hump day.......

Well here we are, another Wednesday...last Wednesday of January already...I swear I remember celebrating New Years just last week lol.

Well in an effort to prepare my humble abode for Valentines Day, I decided I needed some cute/inexpensive wall art to brighten things up. I picked up one of these hideous frames at The Dollar Tree:

After I ripped the ugly brass colored plastic "frame" piece glued to the glass, I used double sided tape and added some cute scrapbook paper. Then I popped open a bag of conversation hearts (I won't disclose how many I ate while working on this project...) and on the back of them I used a fine point art marker to make the letters I wanted for a little crossword love. And here's what I came up with:

It feels like its missing something, but I can't quite figure out what...maybe a bow, or some other embellishment...who knows...but for now, I'm pretty happy with my $2 project (well technically $1.10, cuz I DEFINITELY ate .90 worth of supplies ;)

So what have you been up to? Please NO solicitations, and please leave me some comment love. Can't wait to see all you've accomplished!!!!!

Gettin' Crafty on hump day.......

Time to link people! Can't wait to see what you've been up to...I have been up to...well...not crafting. I've been couponing more and running around scoopin' up the deals. I also found out last Thursday that I'm having a.........GIRL...so I have been doing a LOT of shopping ;)

Just as a question, I know that this is a craft blog, but would you be interested in reading posts about great deals? If I find a great coupon deal, or a great sale or something, is that something you'd want to read? Or should I keep it strictly crafts? I'm totally open to your suggestions :)

Ok, so no solicitations and PLEASE leave me a comment with your thoughts on my query (see previous paragraph).

And awayyyyyyyyyyy we go.........

Gettin' Crafty on Hump Day....

Hey folks, its that time again!!! Can't wait to see what you've all been working on! I myself have been working on things for my little mans birthday party this weekend. I do have a fun treat to share with you though. I'm sure lots of you have already tried this, but if not, you should! It was fun to make and I've never seen a group of kids devour cupcakes faster!

Fill your ice cream cones 1/2 full of cake batter, and bake them in a muffin pan at 350 for approx 25 minutes. After they have cooled, pipe on some icing, throw on some rainbow sprinkles, and watch them disappear! Easy peasy and super cute! :)

So what've you been up to? Please NO SOLICITATIONS. Other than that, please leave me comment love, and tell your friends about my party :)

PS-I still haven't heard from Kristen, the winner of the purse. PLEASE email me so I can get you your prize :)

Lets link!
