Vintage Trike Redo

Speaking of my nephew’s birthdays- last year I redid this old trike for his 2nd birthday and never got around to posting it. The center I work for was getting rid of the old trikes we had so I grabbed one!

I used just spray paint and tape!

This is what I started with:

I filed off as much old paint as I could








He’s so big now! ❤

My nephew, Carter, just celebrated his 3rd birthday! Of which he had a pirate theme! So I made chocolate cupcakes with caramel buttercream and salted caramel sauce

And as a gift I made a pirate map! All freehand embroidered- my largest embroidery project yet!

Spring Crafting!

Sunday Spring craft day! I’ve been watching Oscar footage all day but in between I’ve been de-wintering the house and putting some Spring together!

New wreath! Still undecided about the bow. Steve claims it’s more of a summer wreath but likes the simplicity of it.

I wanted to do pastel felt rosettes but this came together instead. It does seem more like a summer wreath. Wreaths are really challenging!

Spring shelf vignette.. work in progress

Obviously super into bunting!

Yay Spring!

Sick Crochet Couch Fest 2012

A little while ago I had the flu and spent 3 days on the couch

Producing many little critters and things…

This guy is not an original idea. It’s a recreation of a photo I found online!

Another online recreation. Brought to me by!

Log! This was a project I started over the summer and had bigger ideas for but decided to finish it instead.

I’ve wanted to make little babushkas forever! These gals joined me on the couch.

Another Pinterest pattern!

It was the best sick couch fest ever.
