Baby K!

My husband and I are happy to announce that we're expecting our first child this June. So you know what that means? Time for cute baby crafts!

I've already started on the baby album, since I figure I won't have time to make it once the baby comes. So stay tuned, new projects are coming...finally!

Happy New Year!

Daily Advice

I was reading an article about Oprah in the lobby of my doctor's office the other day. (Yes, I realize that those of you who know me are in no way surprised that I would be reading about Oprah!) Any way, I fell in love with this bit of advice. I love it so much, that I cut it out of vinyl letters and put it on the mirror in our bathroom.

Why not start off my day with a bit of wisdom from Oprah? :)

Easy DIY Project!

I was just watching a movie, and needed a little craft project to keep me busy. I came up with a really quick and easy idea. I just bought a set of bangle bracelets at H&M. Quite a few came in the pack, and I was wondering what to do with all of them.

And then it came to me...wire-wrapped bangles for a punch of color. I took some craft wire that I had laying around the house, and simply wrapped each one with varying lengths for an added detail. Enjoy!

For the Bride and Groom

This past weekend, my husband and I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of some dear friends. We were partnered with them through a community pastor at our church, and journeyed with them as they got engaged and planned their wedding. Their special day was filled with a few jitters, tears, ear-to-ear grins, and of course lots of love. We wish them the best as they embark on their new life together as one.

Congrats to Hannah & Alex!

Changing the world. One greeting card at a time.

How can a person change the world with one greeting at a time you ask? Great question.

Two local women may have found the answer. Check out the following article from the Grand Rapids Press. A great idea created by two wonderful women. What a blessing!

Oh baby that's cute!

Wow! It's been a long time since I posted a project. I made this card for a friend's baby shower last month. Scott and Emily are going to be great parents, and we can't wait to meet sweet baby Hannah.

I found some great baby paper by My Mind's Eye. I always love their patterns! I used this paper for a memory album I made for the mom-to-be. I'll post pictures of that project soon. :)

Wedding Card

I made this card for a little bridal shower gathering for a co-worker. I used stamps, rhinestones, and glitter. This card was my first attempt using a stamp with Martha Stewart's glue pad and glitter. It adds the perfect extra something. Thanks Jan!
