Mini Embroidery Hoop Wreath Ornaments

I love making handmade Christmas ornaments.  I look forward to adding to our collection each year.  Embroidery hoop ornaments are my favorite type of ornament to make because they just ooze handmade charm (in a good way).  My Christmas tree may not be color coordinated or matchy-matchy, but it sure does bring back a lot of sweet Christmas memories.

Stamp a Scene with Paper Piecing

Even with the start of school this week, I am still dreaming of a relaxing tropical vacation.  Sigh.  Since a trip to far off isles isn't in my near future, I'll keep living vicariously through card making for now.

Monkey Thanks a Bunch Banana Gift Tag

I craft a good game, but I am a gift giving slacker.  I have so much fun putting together fun paper-crafted gift ideas, but they rarely leave my craft room.  I think I have finally come up with a simple gift idea that requires minimum effort.  Have a look...

Watermelon Clock Hack

There is nothing quite as iconic as watermelon in summer.  This colorful, round, juicy fruit is so fun and pretty it practically begs to be turned into all types of crafts, even a clock.  A watermelon clock?  Who knew?!

Bright Paper Pineapple Boxes

I have officially fallen in love with the pineapple trend.  While I don't yet own any t-shirts or shoes embellished with pineapples, I sure do think they are charming.  A couple of weeks ago I saw this pineapple box Silhouette cut file over on Amy Robison Designs IG feed and I was just giddy.
