Letters and Love Collage

Nothing fancy today. Just a fun little letter collage. Micrsoft publisher + a little creativity. I'm going to frame this for my desk but it would be a great project for a kid's bedroom. Hope you enjoy!

"Dressy" Shower Napkin

Here's an idea to jazz up a baby or wedding shower... a "dressy napkin."  It makes for a nice table accessory and you can use colored ribbon and napkins to match your theme colors. The only downside is that the napkin is so cute you will not want to use it to wipe your mouth!

Paper Napkins
Curling Ribbon

Fold the 2 ends of a paper napkin to meet in the center
Press the napkin between the pages of a heavy book or paper weight to crease the edges
Cut a small triangle from the top for the dress neckline
Cut a small triangle from the right and left side to create the sleeves
Tie with a piece of ribbon to create the dress sash

BOO to you!

Here's another easy Halloween craft that can be used to decorate your mantle or table top! I have been using the "BOO" theme for most of my Haloween decor because my husband's nieces and nephews call him "Uncle Boo"....I'm not sure why but it's cute! 

3 dollar tree frames
scrapbook paper or decorative paper

How to assemble:
1) Cut 4x 6 squares of scrapbook or decorative paper. I downloaded some free holiday background paper from

2) Use microsoft word to print the letters on your paper.

3) Insert prints into frames.

4) Voila!

Witch Craft Wreath

After a brief hiatus, I am back to crafting and gearing up for Halloween. While my husband was indulging in some Sunday NFL action, I assembled this wreath using my recycled holiday wreath base and some Dollar Tree finds. Total cost : $4

Supplies: Wreath Base, decorative wire ribbon, craft wire or paper clips, festive signs

How to assemble:
1) Loosely warp the wreath with one yard of ribbon

2) Make a holiday bow using 2 yards of wire ribbon
(Wrap 10 alternating loops or ribbon, 5 on each side. Tie the center with craft wire. Bend the loops in alternating directions to create a circle.)

3) Attach your store-bought holiday signs to the wreath base with craft wire or by bending paper clips.

4) Voila!
