My Desk Sign!

Hi Everyone!
I wanted to share a project that I made. Sa Crafters is having a desk sign contest on you tube, and I
thought I would make myself one. I didn't enter the contest,but I had fun making this. I purchased the wood plaque from Hobby Lobby. I painted it with white acrylic paint,let it dry and then went over it with distress
crackle paint in picket fence and I also used rock candy crackle paint to give it a glossy, crackled shine.

The top and bottom is adhesive backed recollection bling. The metal key is also from Hobby Lobby. I painted it with black acrylic paint and adhered with hot glue.  The vellum butterfly is from Martha Stewart crafts. I added a black feather, some more black recollection bling, and a color me crazy flower with a ribbon flower on top and I made the stick pin using
a corsage pin, glass beads and glossy accents. I loved how my sign turned out!

Here is a closeup of the butterfly and the metal key!

Thanks for looking!
Have a Blessed Day :-)

BitterSweet Day!

It's so hard to believe that my baby girl is in 5th grade now! She is growing up waaay to fast for me!
Gone are the cute little pig tails, sipee cups, mcdonald's happy meals and light up tennis shoes.

Now all she likes is... Straight long hair, sequined and bright clothing, flip flops and adult dinners, teen magazines and her laptop!

Where does time go?

Historic Loudon TN

Goodness! I didnt realize that it has been almost 2 wks since I have posted...! Well my Mom and I went to this cute little town that is fairly close to by...We have passed it before on our way to Knoxville and said we need to check this town out sometime so last Saturday we did.. I really enjoyed browsing thru all the cute qauint little shops there. I didnt buy much just a cute vintage pill box and some yummy blueberry jam! Here are some pics of our excursion!

This is my wonderful Mom who is also my best friend :)
This little ice cream parlor was featured in the Southern Living Magazine in 2004 as favorite place to go for ice cream!

This is the cutest little store with lots of  barrels of old fashioned candy and they have yummy candles and salsa, jams and jellies and the sweetest poodle named Cooper who greets you as you come in the front door!

I definately want to go back here when my knee gets better, they have some beautiful antiques on the 2nd floor! This was a fun store to browse in!

And here is me and my bummed up knee!
