A few of my very first projects :)

Happy Wednesday!! Today I thought I would share some of my first projects and tutorials so you can make your own. :)

The first project I would like to share with you is a family rules canvas! I had first seen this from the pleated poppy and I LOVED it so much I had to make my own!

My Rules:
Put God first
Be happy
Always tell the truth
Work Hard
Forgiveness is a must
Be thankful
Never leave angry
Say your prayers 

The pleated poppy has a great tutorial! So to make your own just click here!

Ok this next project is super easy and so much fun! Recycled Formula Cans! They make GREAT organizers for just about anything your little heart desires :)

Check out a tutorial here from Crafts Unleashed and get organized!! 

The last project I'm gonna share with you today is also super easy and cheap to make. Wooden photo blocks. Super cute!! 

I found these wood photo blocks at Micheals for $1.99.

What you need:
Wood photo block
scrapbook paper
mod podge
Any stickers or embellishments you want to use

Ok so all you do is pick out some cute scrapbook paper and cut it to fit your block. I cut 4 pieces. 2 to fit the front and back and 2 for the sides. Now time to mod podge it on the block! After you mod podge it on do another layer of mod podge over it.

Note: If you want to write on them with permant marker or something, do it BEFORE you put the mod podge over your paper. 

Then pick out some pictures and your all done!! I made these as centerpieces for my sons first birthday and they turned out adorable! 
Sorry for the bad pic :)

Hope you enjoy and have a great day!

About Me

My Life :)
My name is Tiffany, I'm a born again christian, and a Sinner Saved by Grace! I was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida. I have been married for 5 years to an amazing man! I'm a SAHM of two precious boys (LOVE THEM)! I love Jesus, singing, theatre, broadway, crafts, good style, vintage things, pictures, hello kitty, dancing, lots of shopping, decorating, enormous sunglasses, thunderstorms, Barbra Striesand, food, taking pictures, chocolate, musicals, cuddling, shoes, lip gloss, sundays, chunky monkey ice cream, karaoke, horses, coffee, sunflowers, crab legs, movies, cats, shabby chic things, thrift stores, and coke! (cola...that is). 
                   Sitting on my couch with mod podge, scrapbook paper, fabric, and two toddlers running around me Is never something I would have seen myself doing! It all started with a girls craft night and myself intensively concentrating on my first project while my friends laughed at how OCD I was being :) I have learned to relax a bit more and have also discovered that this crafting thing was more than just a hobby but something I truly love and have a passion for!
I started this blog to share my projects, ideas, and to inspire others to get creative!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24
