Ric Rac

I was browsing one of my pinterest boards when I noticed something on one of my pins. It was a cute idea! Ric rac around the inside of a frame. So whats a girl to do?
Steal the idea,  of course!
Here is my version...

And here's theirs. So very cute and fun!

When I clicked on the link
  for the first time they actually go into a bit more detail about making the name art than I had expected (sweet!). I think the gal that thought this up is clever! Check it out on the Crap I've Made site!

 Totally don't think I'd have thought of this!!!!

But I know I'll be keeping this one in my idea arsenal.

Thankful to be hearing the sweet sounds of happy, healthy children!

So this isn't a crazy original idea, but it's cheap and easy. I don't know about you guys, but that is my kind of craft! I had a frame I wasn't crazy about so I painted it with a really inexpensive chalkboard spray paint I got at Wal-Mart. You can get lots of these types of frames from the dollar store or just use a frame that you've gotten sick of looking at.  

This would make a really cute teacher gift in my humble opinion. 

So whaddya think?

Just wanted to share a painting I did for my friends new baby, Watson.
This is based off a cartoon called The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.
I really miss that cartoon.

I don't have much to say today, except that I'm grateful that I get to learn new things and new ways of dealing with life. It really is a process, isn't it.
Enjoy the adventure.

Easter Inspiration

Hey there Stranger!
I have really done a whole lot of nothing too interesting lately, and that includes NOT decorating for Easter. So here is where I get to pretend that I did something by showing you a collection of OTHER peoples photos.

One Must Shock the Bourgeois

La Famiglia Design

White House Black Cat on Etsy

Miss Mustard Seed

I really love this plate!

by Evie Lotts on Etsy

And lastly, these pottery barn eggs found on Buckets of Grace

I think we should make some of our own, whaddya say????

So nice to see you all again!
And I can't forget to say that today I am grateful for the Hope and Excitement of a new beginning.
I'm thinking I just might be back tomorrow to show you something I painted.
Just Maybe.

Cutting Back

Sorry I haven't been around here much.
This is the part that's going to sound whiny, but it is what it is. I've been really down because things are really tight. So tight that it seems that no amount of cutting back can save us. I have made the decision to stay home with my children and that is what is really doing us in. It is sad to me that hardly anyone can make it on a single family income.
So now I have made us a new budget, this is the first month trying to implement it. I see all the times we have wasted money in the past and I could just kick myself. Once again, it is what it is.  All I can do is pray and look for opportunities to bring in some income while still being with my children. I still have so many ideas, dreams, and goals that I would love to realize, but now it seems it is time to wait and see what God has in store.

Like the song says "You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes you might find, You get what you need"

 Cheesy, I know.
