So I didn't make my goal but here are a few things I've accomplished!!

So last year I went a little crazy buying a bunch of vinyl projects.  Well as I usually do I have great intentions but don't always get the things done I would like to.  Well I sat down to clean up my craft table the other day and instead of cleaning I ended up getting a few projects done that have been sitting on my table and that is the way I cleaned.  I got those things off my table!!

Love the green and pink on this.  I like that it's not your typical colors!

Here is a cute sign that I wanted for my garden.  Well now that it's all dead it's done but it is ready for next year!!

This is a fun double sided project which I love because you can get 2 things out of it which means less to store!

Very easy but cute project!

Then I did these cute coasters!  Not that we use coasters that often but just in case we want to we have them now!

Then there was this ugly clock I purchased at the thrift store last winter.  HH was questioning my judgement when I purchased it but it was like .50 or something and I had a vision.

I think it turned out pretty cool.  Now to just find a spot for it!

And last but not least, my latest project...

My BSU countdown.  For our church Super Saturday we were making a Days till Christmas countdown and I bought it.  Then I started thinking about how I didn't need one because I have my awesome advent calendar that I made a few years back.  As my girlfriend and I were standing in the coupon line at Walmart we saw this awesome BSU wrapping paper and an idea sprouted in my head.  Needless to say the wrapping paper came home with me and this is what I came up with!  My husband LOVES it and I've had LOTS of interest in it!!
So there is some of the fun I've been having in between Dr appts, counseling appts, volunteering at school, church callings and the kids being on break.  I hope to have a few other things before the month is over!  Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving spending time with family and friends!!

Plans change

I'm a little bummed because my goal was to post every day this month.  Unfortunately life gets busy.  When you have 4 kids there are lots of things that have to happen and get done and when you have 4 with ADHD and Anxiety there is even more to do.  With PSR and now counseling it is taking up lots of our after school time so of course the craft get put to the way side.  I promise I will get something up this week, I'm hoping it's my wreath but there are no promises!

Ooh, I'm on a roll!

So I saw this pillow awhile ago (I thought it was a year but apparently it's been 2 years.  Wow, does time fly!) on this really fun blog.  I finally did it!!  My goal this month is to post one thing a day for the WHOLE month. We'll see if I can accomplish it!

I think the leaves must be bigger than the ones she used because I didn't get quit as many leaves on as she did but I still love it!!  Well now on to my next project!

I know, I know...

On the 1st day of November you were probably expecting something Fall or Thanksgivingish.  Well sorry to disappoint but I had to get this little purse/bag on here.  I made this for one of my girls friends for their birthday. I love the colors they are so fun and bright.

 The cherry's and paisley just make me happy!

 Here is a close up of the flower I made to adorn this little cutie.
I just took consecutive circles and frayed the edges and then rolled them up in my hand to give them a crumpled look then sewed them on with a layer of matching buttons.  I think it turned out so cute!  We added some hair accessories and a lip gloss inside and off she went to the party.
