Here are our 3 most viewed links this week!
First up is Megan from who made this
 beautiful Jersey t-shirt dress!
Then we have Rachel at   who made some amazing designs
 in her sketchbook this week.
Last we have Katie  at  who made these
 fabulous stenciled drop cloth curtains.
Ladies grab your featured button and let's get his party started!

Stashbusted Birthday Gift #2!

Today we got invited to a birthday party by our friend's from church.. and of course it was two hours after the service.  So guess who didn't have a gift?
So we got home and I whipped up this quick gift for Jonah!
I used my plaques, knobs, paint, scrapbook paper and a piece of wood to mount it on.
Hope he loves it.

Stashbusted Birthday Gift

My little guy had a birthday party today for his friend Grace.  Now he has only been in school for 2 weeks so I don't really know her too well.. but I thought that since ALL little girls love their names it would be fun to make her a name sign.  So here it is.. with a quick tutorial!

And yes..  I did happen to have
All of these items in my house.. I happen to be a bit of a craft hoarder!  So I started with the simple ingredients of wood plaques, scrapbook paper, wood letters, ribbon, knobs, mdf shelf and ribbon.
First I started by painting my plaques purple.
Next I painted my letters Pink.
Then I mod podged my plaques with purple scrapbook paper.
Then I glued on my letters.
Last I painted my knobs purple.  Stapled ribbon loops to the back of the plaques and hung them across an mdf shelf.
Viola.. a present and of course a stashbust!  And by the way.. the plaques
have been sitting in a bucket in my craft cabinets for about 2 years!

A Moment of Inspiration

Do you ever find yourself going to check out the same sights all the time?  Well one of my very favorites is Pottery Barn kids.  Now on a normal basis I cannot afford anything that they offer but I just adore all of their kids bedding sets.. right now my favorite is the new boys Bryce Truck bedding. 
Bryce Trucks Quilted Bedding
A while back I bought some canvases and I covered one of them with magazine pictures.
Then I painted over it with brown paint and added a scrapbook paper "picture frame".
Then I added my scrapbook truck and decoupaged it on.

Last I added some stars and the work TRUCK.
Once the glue dried it looked like this.
Voila.. inspiration and a finshed project.. finally!
