Hi there friends! Tonight I wanted to share a quick craft project that’s sure to put a smile on the baseball lovers face! This is a little gift for my little
cousin Robert!

What you’ll need!
White t-shirt
Fabric paint
Paint brushes
Water

Step one
I free handed the baseball on the shirt with red fabric paint. You can trace a baseball print pattern to your shirt if you like.

Step two
Let the baseball pattern dry, this may take like a hour. I like the baseball pattern left alone but for a little personalization I added Robert the All-star! I thought it would be a cute addition to his little sporty shirt. This is completely up to you. This too was free handed but you can buy stencils if you aren’t comfortable.

It’s always nice getting a custom gift! It shows love and thoughtfulness! If you aren’t as crafty as I am that’s ok too!! Remember it’s the thought that counts, people just like to be thought of! Whether it’s a card or call, it doesn’t matter…long as they know they are thought of!

Hope you enjoyed this post!!!

Ducking you up every Friday!
Love ya, Muah!

What you’ll need!

Styrofoam ball
Flower pot
Newspaper
Glue gun
A bag of your favorite lollipops
Ribbon

Step one
Fill the styrofoam ball up with as many lollipops as you can, make sure you don’t see any styrofoam in-between. Leave the bottom of the ball lollipop free, you need room to glue the styrofoam ball to the pot. You want your bouquet to be beautiful!

Step two
Stuff the flower pot with balled up newspaper. (Add a little glue so the newspaper balls don’t move around.)

Step three
Glue your ball to the newspaper and the pot.

Step four
Tie a pretty ribbon around the pot!

Memory Box

Happy Sunday my loves! Today I wanted to share a memory box I did to store some of my daughter’s keepsakes. I decided to this when I noticed I was starting a little collection of things that I felt were extremely precious to me. I didn’t do a step by step tutorial because I really feel with something as personalized as this, the sky is the limit you can use so many things to create a memory box! I’ll show you some of the supplies I used to help you get started if want to create your own.

What you’ll need to get started!!!

Image

Blank cardboard box

Pictures

Scrapbook pieces

Mod Podge

Sponge or paint brush

Glue gun

Keepsake items

Of course there are a few more keepsake items I am going to use, but this picture is to give you an idea of some items that I placed in the box.

I will fill out the card later, I wanted to leave it blank so you could see how creative you could get with your box, something as personal as this adds such a cute touch to something so special.

Image

I added pink lace trim because we all know that anything that’s pink with lace is all girl!!

Image

I only used pictures from the hospital and her first day home….I am mainly using this box for hospital keepsakes and special newborn things that I have an emotional attachment to!

Image

I saved one of my daughter’s birth announcements and this added an additional momentous touch.
Image
I through a sonogram picture in, her first picture ever!!!

Image

Here’s a few of the things that I hold dear to my heart and could never let go!!!

Image

I really hope you attempt to make your own memory box for those special things that you treasure!!! When and if you do please share them with me!!! I would love to see what you beautiful crafters put together.

Love mugs

Happy Monday love bugs!!! Today I decided to do love mugs!! I was inspired to do this after seeing so many all across the internet, this project was swarming all over. I wanted to see if i could create a set for me and my hubby. So, I had to try it so I could share my experience with you. I came up with my own little quotes and my own little touches to make this D.I.Y. project my own!

Before

After

What you’ll need!

Porcelain mug or mugs (depending on how many you want to make).

Sharpie markers (regular or oil based) (your choice of colors).

Pencil 

Alcohol and paper towels 

Let’s Get Started!!!

 Step 1

Wash your mugs and dry them.

Step 2

What is it that you want to write on your mug? I drew mine free hand, you might want to draw your design or words with a pencil first, this is completely up to you.

Step 3

After you’ve figured out your design, trace with the marker neatly. If you mess up you can use your paper towel and alcohol to wipe the error off and re-do.

Step 4

Preheat your oven to 350, and bake the mug/mugs for twenty minutes

Step 5

When mug/mugs have baked take them out of the oven and let them cool.

Now, you can finally put your favorite tea or coffee in your custom mug and show it off!
Note: Handwash gently (Do not use dishwasher)

Image

 Me and my husband added a heart and our signature on one another’s cup to add that special touch!

Image

 

Try these love mugs or just a personal mug for yourself and let me know about it!!!

“Diamonds are a pearls best friend,” revamped sweatshirt!

It’s Wednesday my loves, and luckily I had enough energy to revamp this sweatshirt I’ve been holding on to for three months! Originally, I wanted to rip and dye it, but I thought this idea was much cuter. I call it Diamonds are a pearls best friend,” revamped sweatshirt!! I love pearls next to diamonds, real or fake. It just looks so classic and simplistic.

 (From Drab)

Image

 (To Fab)

Image

 The ideas for this revamped sweatshirt are endless…you can rock this with jeans and flats, or you can wear a cute pleated skirt with pumps!

Image

All you need are some pearl stud earrings, and a simple pearl ring and go on your way!

Image

I left the back simple, you can wear your hair down with a cute white or navy headband for that sexy school girl look, or even a side pony if your going with a simpler approach!

Image

The cut out sleeves were just an added touch, to give this recently drab sweatshirt some flare!

Note: This was a men’s sweatshirt, I altered it to fit me. I can revamp just about anything! Remember, if you want anything custom-made feel free to message me.

Hope you enjoyed the sweatshirt remix! Don’t forget, every girl looks good in pearls!!!
