Just call me Martha

{Martha Stewart}....wannabe that is. I have done a few projects in the past month or so that I am ridiculously proud of. I am really not naturally crafty, so I must give credit where credit is due. Special thanks to Alison Prince (Craft Queen), my mom (Sewing Instructor), and Carley Pickett (Crazy Canner) for making this all possible! ;) So, I am "tooting" my own horn {TOOT TOOT} and showing off my hours of domestictivity {I'm not sure that's a word, but I think it should be} :)

Growth chart for Noah B...

Mail Organizer...

FHE sign for our family....

Shutter Message Board (Unecessary Necessities)...

Canning Peaches & Pears...


Apron I made for an Apron Swap I participated in.

Speaking of my apron swap,...Kara and I started an A to Z Swap where this month we are swapping bags. We need some more people to sign up! :) If your not interested in the bag swap, go to the website and vote for what you want the next swap to be. Click here.

So actually there was quite a bit of "hand holding" going on in these projects, but heck, I'll take a little bit of the credit. ~Here's to trying to be like Martha! ~

  2. Your shutter idea turned out really cute! Maybe when you guys move down here, we should start our own little group. By the way, you HAVE to come down here!

  3. Ok... where did you get those shutters? I've been looking ALL over for some to do that same project. Your's turned out really cute! And I love your mail holder too! Did you buy this? and then put the vinyl lettering on? I've been in such a crafting mood lately.

    I think I will just call you Martha!

  5. Wow! You are amazing, Martha Stewart! I love everything! I could especially use the mail organizer. If you decided to make more to sell, I'd be your first customer-seriously! :)

  8. Hey Lady, cute crafts. I love it. My favorite is the shutters. I, like Sheena, have been looking for shutters to do something similar. I love your blog too, I really love that little guy of yours trying to take that halloween costume off. My husband and I are living in NYC (brooklyn to be exact). Crazy huh. No where near where I thought we would end up, we actually planned on Boise. Our baby is due any day now. Wish me luck.

  13. You are sooo talented. I remember the days when I accomplished a lot of new things. I feel like I have conquered Everest if at the end of the day the house is still standing, everyone got to where they needed to go and were fed, and I am still sane!
