Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest, but about who came and never left your side.

Truck windows

Glass etching on my hubby's new truck. While I was doing it, a sudden rain storm came and I got soaked. I was laughing so hard. It was lots of fun. There are before and after pictures.

Sarah's wedding favors

I made these for a friend's wedding. I made 75 of each. They looks so cute. I got the cutfile for the tux box from JodyP from the Cricut Board. For the bridal dress box, I made some minor changes so it would fit on a 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper. I also added score lines, too. I'm so sorry but I don't remember where I got or who I got that cutfile from. It wasn't my own and I don't take credit for the design. I added netting, pearls for the neckace, and ribbon and flower on the gown. I also embossed the dress using my Big Shot Express

Freezer Paper T- shirts

Here are my first Freezer paper T shirts that I made for my hubby and I. I cut a stencil using my SCAl program being sure to flip the words. You put the glossy side up because it doesn't like to stick to the mat. Cut my design using the cricut. They placed it on my t shirts with the glossy side down. Iron it lightly and it will stick to the shirt. Then I put another sheet of freezer paper inside the shirt before applying Tulip soft fabric paint to the stencil. Let dry a little and remove the freezer paper.

Coasters from tiles

I made several sets of these coasters for friends and family. These are just a sample of them. They are made from a small tiles bought at Lowes. I then printed out a picture on a laser printer and cropped it to size. You put a layer of Modge Podge on the tile and let dry. Put your picture on the tile and cover with another layer of Modge Podge. When it is dry you mist it with water and slowly and gently rub the paper off. You have to be careful or you will rub off the picture. If this happens its no problem, you just wash the tile and start over. I then sealed it with Modge Podge and a top layer of Clear Acrylic Sealer.

Tiles I made for Christmas

I made these tiles for Christmas. I cut the design/words from vinyl and then sealed them with a coat of Modge Podge. I then put a final layer of Clear Acrylic Sealer on top.

Baby picture on candles

I 'melted' the baby's picture onto the candles for a baby shower. I put the weight, length, birthday, time on the other side. To do this, you print what you want to put on the candle on computer paper or you can just write on computer paper too. Also print the picture you want to put on, onto plain computer paper. Trim it up to the size you want and place it on the candle. Wrap wax paper around it keeping it tight. Use a heat gun and 'melt' it into the candle. It will appear 'wet'. Then just peel off the wax paper and you have the picture melted into the candle. It is very easy to do.

Family Names

These are name plaques I did for a Christmas present, wedding gift, and a thank you present. I bought cheap plaques and painted over them and then added the wording in vinyl. I put Modge Podge on the first and then sprayed a finish on top of them.

Diaper Giraffe

I made this out of diapers. I rolled the diapers and use bands to hold them together. I made a cardboard form for the body and covered it with diapers and attached the head. Added google eyes and horns to complete it. The ears, nose, and feet were made from baby socks. The body has a baby bib on it with a pacifer handing around his neck.

Other Decorations for baby shower

Here are some vinyl wall decorations for Aiden's shower. I made them like her bedding and used Wall Pops.

Baby Girl Word Book

I made this for my nephew's wife who is expecting her fourth child (third girl).

Graduation Word book

Here is a 2009 Grad. book I made for a senior. The school's colors are blue and gold and the mascot is ELKS. I used a lot of his announcement in the book and added a page of the senior class.
