Oh thanks for that tip Grace! Didn't think of varnishing to stopping it from warping.

Denise, that is so cute. And looks fun to make! This style of chair reminds me of my sister in law and the style of things she has in your yard. I'm going to show her this picture! Maybe I can help her make one. There are so many creative people in this world.

Yesterday my littles and I worked on some Mother's Day projects. They painted some terra cotta pots and once they were dry I put succulents in the pots. We made one for my mom, my hubbies mom, and one for me. They turned out so stinking cute. Nothing better than homemade gifts.

I agree with you. We have been having some yucky weather as well. My kids have been dying to go outside and I have been dying to send them out. This morning the boys woke up with colds so we won't be getting much crafting done today. I started a crochet unicorn toy last night. It's turning out bigger than I anticipated, but I'm excited to work more on it tonight! I also need to get back to my diamond painting at some point in time.

Grace, you have been super busy! And everything looks fantastic! Your trailer table topper is so bright and beautiful. Are you putting it in your trailer? I also like the switch plate idea. That would be fun to add some pop to my all tan walls. I will consider that once I catch up again. I just keep getting more and more behind on crochet projects. I was working hard on my unicorn yesterday when I came across some freezer pop holders. So guess what... I put my unicorn down and started on them. Oh dear! So far I have finished 2. A mermaid fin and Mickey Mouse. I have 5 more I want to make. Luckily they are quick work ups so I should finish soon and get back to my unicorn. I really NEED to avoid Pinterest until I catch back up! Lol

Grace I love those table toppers and that switch plate cover. You have been so busy creating such beauty! Love the lilacs too!

Krista those freezer pop holders are adorable! What a great idea. I might have to make some for my grandchildren.

I decided I needed a new peg board...
So I found a cheap framed picture at the Thrift, $1.99, took the ugly print out, spray painted the frame, found a piece of scrap burlap (from a previous project), glued, and Voila'

This will go in the Motorhome so I can pin up photos, notes or what evers...

Kim, your table runner is adorable! I love how it turned out.

Grace, I like your peg board! And the fancy font background is really pretty. I like the idea of a peg board. Might be an easy way for me to keep my notes lol!

I made a couple more freezer pop holders in solid colors for some adults! Love how stinking cute they are! They are such a quick and easy workup.
