Mini Dry Erase Boards

Untitled

If you are in need of a quick, cute, and functional gift, try making your own mini dry erase boards! I made 12 of these for Christmas gifts after seeing similar projects on Pinterest. I wanted to get my parents something to replace their note-leaving system of writing on post it notes, little notepads, and backs of envelopes when the little notepads got too full. Then I thought, who couldn't use a cute place to write down reminders, to-do lists or leave messages for family members?

All you have to do is get some picture frames (I got 5x7 frames at Hobby Lobby), cut some cute scrapbook paper to fit into the frames (try to pick colors or patterns that aren't too busy for a nice background), assemble, get some dry erase markers, and write away! The dry erase markers wipe off the glass like a dream!

Happy Groundhog Day everyone! Did you hear that the groundhog didn't see his shadow? That hasn't happened in years! I'll take that as a pretty auspicious sign for my birthday today! I'm spending the afternoon enjoying the sun through the window with a little crochet and some tea. Pretty nice!

Have a great one my friends!

Banjo Kazooie

This was a Christmas present that I finally finished this past weekend. I felt so bad, and I was so relieved to get it done. But boy was it a bear, no pun intended, to make! It wasn't necessarily difficult, but there were so many pieces and parts to make it just plain fiddly!

Throwback Thursday

Untitled

Hey everyone, I'm throwing back to this past Thanksgiving. I realized I never posted our table and our first shibori-ish project... probably because my mom and I were slightly bummed about the final result. Don't get me wrong, I love how our table looked, but our napkins and runners got a little washed out in the washing machine. Live and learn, right? Here's some more pictures though:

Crocheted Potholders

Untitled

My mom had been not-so-subtly hinting she wanted potholders for Christmas, so I found a couple of patterns on Ravelry and made them as a little set.

Happy Tuesday friends! Today I thought I'd try a more abstract route... Does this feel cold and windy to you? Brrr!!!

Hope you all have a warm and cozy day!

Tuesday, Wednesday... close enough right? I love opening the curtains in the morning and seeing where the sun is starting to shine!

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
