Easter Block Trio


My Aunt Evelyn gave me a set of these a few years back and I have been making them for every holiday since.  This craft is easy to make and I love coming up with fun words to include in each trio. I use 1x1 boards and cut them to 9", 7" and 5".  I had some pink, green and purple spray paint so I used that, but in the past I have also used craft paint to paint them.I got out my Cricut and used my Sure Cuts A Lot software to create the words Jelly Beans, Chocolate Bunny and Easter Eggs.  I cut … [Continue reading...]

Fancy Nancy Dress Up Suitcase & Giveaway


I recently made this custom suitcase for a customer and LOVE it!  It is one of my favorite suitcases that I have made and my daughter was very disappointed it wasn't for her!
