Warren’s Masterpiece

Warren's Masterpiece

I love watching little kids as they create.

At almost two, Warren doesn’t always get to use markers.

He just quietly worked on his Masterpiece for at least 10 minutes or more.

Just happy creating.

I wish I had that freedom.  (my head gets in the way)

My Masterpiece

For Warren’s frame I decorated a clear flat acrylic frame from Deflecto Craft Solutions by adding a

couple strips of Washi Tape along with some Lime Green Iron-on Letters from Joy SA Inc.

I glued the letters onto the frame (since I couldn’t iron them) and added a couple magnet strips

to the back.

Warren was so proud of his Masterpiece.

Post It Note Holder

Post It Note Holder 9236

Do you like Post It Notes?   (I mean really like them.)

Are you one of those people that have post it notes stuck all over the place?

I stick notes in my planner, on my calendar, on the cabinet doors in my office, on the door leading out

to the garage and sometimes even on my lists.  (it can be a problem)

So… it should come to no surprise that this is one of my favorite quick and easy projects to make.

Simple to Make.  Easy to Personalize.  Makes a Great Gift(what’s not to love?)

Lucky Day Frame

St. Patricks Day Frame 2722

There’s something about turning the calendar page to March that makes me feel happy.

Even though we got snow on March 1rst and ice on March 3rd, I can’t help but feel

that Spring’s just right around the corner.  And… that really makes me happy!

I don’t usually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day…

but after getting this green bordered frame from Deflecto and seeing this “Lucky Day”

collection from Authentique Paper, I was inspired.

Lucky Frame Corner 3118  Flower Close up

I did a little fussy cutting with the hat and shamrocks and adhered them directly onto the front of

the frame.  I also water-colored directly onto the cream paper flower to make it match the flowers

on the scrapbook paper.

Powerful Words, Great Advice.

Words I need to be reminded of everyday, not just at Thanksgiving time.

As a gift for you, I created the below graphic using a free photo editing site,

with no watermark so that you can save it onto your computer.

I printed the below image out as a 5″ x 7″ photo and put it in one of the Beveled Edged Craft Frames

that I received from Deflecto Craft Solutions.
