We had a fun time last night. I won a Duck Dynasty party thru, so yesterday all my peeps came over all cammoed up, (I don't know if that's even a word, but I'm going with it) and ate bbq, rode quads, and hung around the bonfire. Just your typical redneck fun. Here's a few crafty fun ideas for ya if you're ever needing camo inspiration...
I know, camo overload, but it was fun.

One solution to a lack of decor, duct tape. I needed cannisters to hold silverwear, so I found some camo duct tape and covered a couple of food containers. Now if only they would make glitter covered duct tape, I would glitter bomb everything and sparkle the world!

Is it really February already?!?

Seriously, I don't try to put off blogging, I just am not good at remembering it. I have been mad crazy working on crafts though, so that should count as something. My crosses were a huge hit for Christmas, now my problem is finding more of them to sell. Hobby Lobby only carries them at Christmas, I guess, and I haven't found the perfect match anywhere else, so I may have to get creative. Other than that, I've mostly been organizing my craft space. It doesn't seem like much, but I feel much happier in a clean and organized room since it is so full and can easily overwhelm you. So anyways, I have been crafting, I just don't have tons of time to sit and talk about it, so here's a few pics of some of my going ons.

Gearing up for Christmas

My new reminder

My messy desk while working on signs.

Made up some cross and cookie cutter ornaments.

Some pendant necklaces.

More crosses

My projects

A bedspring Christmas tree
So, I've been unable to write, blog, update, etc. for many reasons. My computer took a big dump on me and was out of service for over a month, but I have still tried to find time to craft and go junkin. I hit up several shows this fall like Ruffles & Rust, and got many ideas for future crafts. I even took my oldest son to a show after he took some interest in crafting. While we didn't find much for materials at the show, we did hit the payload at the Goodwill and were able to get enough cool finds for him to make his little creations, (more on those another time.) My MOPS group is having a home business fair, so I thought maybe I'd build up some inventory to sell. We'll see how it goes. The nice part is, if it doesn't sell, it's already something I love, so it's a win-win situation. Hope you like.

My fall pumpkin idea

Before I move right on to Christmas, I thought I'd at least show off the pumpkin I made. The pumpkin itself was from the dollar store and then I covered it with scrap fabric. Easy peasy.

Some of my other newest projects

Here are a few more of my latest and greatest. I had a little help from my crafty sister making the giant ruler measuring board. I also used floor polish and Martha Stewart glitter to make the glitter bottles. And the last picture is just to show that my grass is finally growing on "Jesus's Tomb." All these are really simple half hour at the most kind of projects.

New signs

I love making signs. I have decoupaged, screen printed, and painted on canvas, fabric, and wood. If there's a sassy saying or inspirational inkling, I'm usually trying to figure out where I can put another sign in my home. Here are the latest and greatest.

What I've been up to... in my DREAM ROOM!

So I finally got my craft room done. It was tough enough moving and painting everything by myself, but add four kids and their crazy school and sports schedule to the mix, and you get it. I went with a very light robin egg blue. It's very Martha Stewart looking. I tried to organize it so it made sense, computer and coupon stuff together, yudu stuff together, cricut and scrappbooking together, etc. So far I just sit and stare at it all, but soon enough it'll be messy and I'll be fully engulfed in a project. I can't wait for my crafty friends to stop by and come play with me and my fun toys!

 Hopefully this room gets my creative juices flowing even more!
