Misc. Projects

I find this on tutorial on Pinterest and with a big event coming up this summer, I though why not try it and see if I want to use them…..

Here is the original post from Snug as a Bug Baby

And here are my roses….



I would totally recommend using a low temp glue gun, and one that has a trigger, I used a high temp gun that you have to push the glue stick through with your finger, it was a pain.

Another Pinterest find is the tin can luminaries.  My pin was a reported spam link so I went to trusted Google and found several tutorials that said fill the can with water and freeze,


Notice that the design is already drawn on, the Google results suggested to draw it on after its frozen, that would probably work great with a simple design but trying to punch a palmetto tree and moon it was easier to drawn it before freezing.


In process, instead of using a nail, I used a metal punch, this caused little circles of tin to get in the ice, so don’t let the ice melt in the drain.  If you just a nail, you probably wouldn’t have that problem.


Will post pictures of the finished painted project.

After getting a Cricut for Christmas I finally created my first scrapbook page!


This is the title page for my travel scrapbook.  Can’t wait to keep creating with my Cricut

And finally a cross stitch update


This is a surprise for my Granny.

  1. And the best kind of surprise too. I did a surprise for my grandma when she was in the nursing home. She loved it, and now that she's gone, it sits on my mom's TV stand in the sewing room. I can't wait to watch your progress on granny's surprise! Your roses are nice, I like them except I'm not fond of the color. I would love to see them in pinks and purples and blues. Maybe you could dye them? And lastly, I can't wait to see your luminaries lit. I'll bet they're gonna be fab!
