Altered Hot Pink and Zebra Striped Coat Rack...

I found this stuff at Walmart awhile back:

So I bought this:

I painted it hot pink with a sugar coat of glitter, added the zebra Peel and Stick, blinged it up with some rhinestones and ta-da!!!

It's perfect for my daughter's room!!!  I still have a TON of the peel and stick left, so I will be using it on many more projects to come :)

2x4 Thanksgiving Crafts...

Hubs has been recovering from surgery, which means that I've lost my wood man.  He is the one that normally cuts, sands and preps my wood.  I was dying to do some Thanksgiving crafts, so I headed out to our scrap pile and found a few discarded 2x4's that didn't need any cutting.

First, I made this darling Pilgrim boy:

Then I made a Turkey:

                                                        I used a balloon for his gobbler :)

Finally, I made an Indian boy:

Sign From Old Board

My sis built a beautiful home a few years back and has been working on their game room/bar area.  For her birthday, Hubs and I made her this wall hanger sign using some old weathered boards:
I spray painted and sanded the old boards and used my Silhouette Cameo to do the words and then used the negative portion as a stencil. When the lettering was dry, I gave it all a really good sanding and then drilled holes and then used the wire to hold it all together. I'm so in love with old boards and signs!

 I hope she loves it and that it looks great in her bar!

Wedding Gift Sign...

The first of my 19 year old daughter's best friends from school got married this past month (YIKES!), so I made her this gift to give her:
                                                                    Obviously their last name and wedding date...

I hope they loved it and wish Mr. & Mrs. Shields a lifetime of love, health and happiness!

Ghoulish Halloween Dinner Party...

Every year me, my sis and our mom put together a fun Halloween themed dinner party.  Here a few pix from this years party:

I made place cards with each guests name on it and one for each food item..

Up close of one of the place cards...


I made a menu...

We always have fun names for the food...

The "bloody eyeballs", precooked...

"Infected Eyeballs", precooked...
After we pulled them out of the oven...

The rest of the food:

The Food buffet:

 The place settings.  I didn't have enough place mats, so I found a roll of wrapping paper that had raised velvet designs, I bought that and then just hand cut out the number that I needed...

A couple of the food placards up close:

It was a really fun day.  After eating, we did our annual pumpkin carve.  I love our family traditions, we look forward to this event every year!
