My Mom is so creative when it comes to making junk into something fabulous. Thank goodness because my Dad is one of those that doesn't throw much away; she likes to rummage through his things for DIY projects and up cycling. She found some old screen, twisted it up and made these roses. The finished rose was about two inches in diameter, or maybe even a little bigger. You can paint any color. Super fabulous, right?! They looks great on flower pots.

I made this last year for Father's Day and once again, I totally forgot to post it right before the holiday. Oh well! I'm going to go ahead and post it now. This is such a cute and sweet saying. I purchased a simple piece of wood from Hobby Lobby, stained it and added the vinyl. Quick and easy!

Can you believe that it is almost Christmas?! Yep, we are half way through the year. I am already getting geared up! Last year, I was on a jalepeno jelly making spree and I was able to master the consistency of jelly. (Jelly can get "soupy" and you have to be sure to follow the directions EXACTLY!) I gave out these tiny jars of jalepeno jelly to friends and coworkers. I felt like it was a nice gift for the people who are close to you but you don't want to spend a lot of money.

I really enjoy making baby bedding, especially when I get use Fightin' Texas Aggie fabric. I only made a blanket and a few sheets with these fabrics. I was surprised by how well this light pink and gray went with Aggie maroon.
My fellow Aggies just can't get enough of these subway art signs. I'm pretty sure that I've made about 20 of them. So fun and unique.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the most amazing things that I have ever made. I wanted a really fabulous wreath for my front door and I knew I wanted it to be burlap but I did not want the same old burlap wreath like I've seen before. Those are cute but I really wanted something a little more over the top. I feel like I achieved the look that was going for- burlap, grapevine, flowers, and a few feather stems.
