Vinyl Wall Clock

We have this clock on our wall in our family room. Literally everyone who sees it comments on how cool it is--no matter the age. 

Here is the best part. It is at Hobby Lobby for I think it is 30-50? And it goes on sale for 40-50% off all the time. So you can get this large clock for a rather inexpensive price!

We had one in our old house, too, in our master bedroom. We obviously couldn't transfer it with us, so it is still there and the new owners are enjoying it.

Scrapbooking: Kaitlyn's Family Section

I love to scrapbook, and I am still an old school scrapbooker. Yes, I know digital is cheaper and faster, but there is something relaxing for me to actually scrapbook. Here is the family section of Kaitlyn's 0-12 month scrapbook (yes, yes, I am far behind).

Family intro page

Daddy page

Mommy page



Grandma Beverly

Grandpa Ron

Great Grandparents

More Great Grandparents

More Great Grandparents

Aunts and Uncles



This is what I have been spending most of my crafting time on, and why things have been pretty quiet around the craft blog over the last month.

Decorating Idea: More Grouping

Here is another example of a place I have grouped things on the wall in my home. This is in the hall, so that is why the picture is not good. That P is so great, I got it at Hobby Lobby. Notice also that all of my frames are different. We once would try to have matching frames, but then things would happen like somebody would knock one down and break it while he moved things up and down the stairs (that would be my husband) or we would want to add a frame because we had a new baby, so we decided the best idea was to have different frames. They are all black, but all different. There is also a mirror there.

Africa Dresses

Thanks to everyone who sent supplies an dresses for Africa! And thanks to Serra for helping me make the dresses. One reader did them a bit differently, and I think they are fabulous--mostly because they require no bias tape and I despise sewing with bias tape. Go here to see the tutorial on her amazing craft blog. These little girls are going to be so excited to have these adorable dresses to wear!

Menu Planner

A while ago, I posted about this menu book I made. I have since printed the book, laminated it, and used it, and I love it!

I got a wet erase marker (like they use on overheads) and write out my weekly menu plan. I am totally loving this!
