A simple project...

A while back I won a vinyl saying "Family is Everything" from House of Smith's blog.  You will have to go check out her blog, she makes amazing projects!  I have been going through my craft room and found a thin piece of canvas.  I painted it black, then applied the vinyl.  I used my crop-a-dile hole punch to punch holes and thread the ribbon through!
Easy, Easy!

Have a great weekend!

Christmas Stuff

This Christmas Season I thought that I could just get rid of most of my Christmas decor and start fresh and new.  I have had most of my decor for the 15 years that Bill and I have been married and they are getting a little worn, plus I am getting board of the same ol' stuff.  This month, even though it is just the first, is already bringing on new change for our family.  I am trying not to feel overwhelmed with what will be on our family's "plate".  I guess that my idea of starting over on our Christmas decor will have to wait until next year.

Until then...I will just get on Pinterest and DREAM!!

Do I have time to make something like this?  {source}
