Chalkboard Art

OOOh, how cute is this!  
I found this idea and tutorial here.



OOOhhh I am sooo excited to share my new blog makeover with you that I had to share the love.  I've partnered with my blog designer Shabby Vanity to offer you a free blinky!!  But not just one of you TWO of you!!

I'm so excited, and it's as easy as 1,2,3... here's your end of the deal...

On the same date:
  1. Leave a comment on this post
  2. Post about my blog makeover on your blog and use my cute blinky on your blog post or sidebar
  3. Become a friend of this new blog!
But wait!  You can repeat #1 and #2 once per day and then your chances of the random generator choosing you will increase - woot woot!!  And it gets even better... I'm also offering TWO MORE BBFFs a chance to win Bunches by Mo Manning (or any image of your choice from her store).

Ahhh, what a sweet day it will be on Valentines Day morning when I choose YOU to win one of these FOUR prizes :)

Good Luck :)

Vintage Upcycled Ornaments

How darned cute are these ornaments?!

Baby Hand Ornament


My sis-in-law fell in love with this idea that I found on Pinterest, so we made our own custom ornament with my nephew's one year old handprint on a clear plastic ornament using metallic acrylic craft paint.  We also found some silver metallic Sharpie markers and wrote his name and the year on the back.  Too cute!!
