My Heart Beats For You – Classroom Valentine Card

My Heart Beats For You Valentine Card

I'm so excited to share my first ever classroom-style Valentine's Day card with you guys! I got the idea for this Valentine when I was browsing the aisles at my local grocery store. I stumbled across Reese's Hearts and my mind ran with it. This took me one too many nap times to complete. Thank you teething and a fussy baby who only wants to nap 20-30 minutes at a clip. Also, never did I realize that when we bought our home that my craft room being right next to a future nursery would not be a … [Read more...]

Paper Fish Nursery Decor

Paper Fish Nursery Decor

Oh man, am I excited to finally share the Paper Fish Nursery Decor I made for Ryder's room before he was born. When we started brainstorming ideas for his nursery I knew I wanted to incorporate fish. I had it in my head that I wanted a school of fish swimming from one side of his wall to the next. Then to add more depth to the wall we added the hand-cut letters of his name to the wall. It's like the fish are swimming from his name and I love everything about it! Can I tell you that this was … [Read more...]

Birthday Paper Doily Tag

Birthday Paper Doily Tag from #12MonthsOfMartha

Today is a very special day... it's Mr. Woodsy's birthday! We typically don't exchange BIG birthday gifts and sometimes we don't exchange any gifts at all. This year I decided to splurge and get Mr. Woodsy a GoPro camera. He has been eyeing that camera for years, and well I finally made his dreams come true. I wanted to give him the camera before our cruise (last week). It just so happened that the camera and accessories arrived at our mailbox last Monday, and I was off work. So operation pick … [Read more...]

DIY Monogram Stickers For Cards

DIY Monogram Stickers For Cards #ChristmasCards #PaperCrafting #DIY #Tutorial

The other night I received our Christmas cards from I knew I was going to be in a mad-dash to get these babies, sealed, stamped, and out to the mailbox. My goal was to get them complete in one evening. I have a super large family on both sides. Most years we send on average 75-100 cards. That's a lot of stuffing and stamping if you ask me. And in past years (because I was crazy) I would write a message in each card and sign. Not this year--I went with the double-sided "pre-signed" … [Read more...]
