Mother's Day - Proverbs 31

Sharing a framed Scripture piece I made especially for Moms.
The wooden frame is handpainted in the shabby chic style and sealed with a clear sealer. 
The art is made of floral fabric with a polka-dot ruffle.
The verse is printed on canvas and embellished with paper roses and pearls.

Table Runner

I had a lot of fun designing and creating this shabby chic table runner for my shop.
I used two of the same fabrics from the Hoop Art and Mother's Day Cards and added in a green and white polka-dot material I just picked up.
A white fabric ruffle on each end makes this piece "soft and feminine!" 
Stop by the shop and check it out!

Embroidery Hoop Art

Here's an original and unique creation I made using an embroidery hoop.
I used some pretty floral fabric and paired it with pink sear sucker and lace.
The label is cut from canvas and written on with a pink sharpie marker.
I crocheted the butterfly and added a few pearls to complete this piece.
I created the Mother's Day cards to match - both can be found in my Etsy shop.

Mother's Day Cards

Mother's Day will be here before you know it!
I decided to try something different on my cards this year -- I used fabric and lace for the fronts instead of cardstock!
I love how they turned out so "soft and feminine."
These are available in my shop and include a pretty envelope and crocheted butterfly magnet.

I've added two handmade (paper-mache) sailboats to the shop!
The sail is handsewn to the mast and each has colorful buttons adorning the front. 
For the base I used dictionary pages to paper mache with and lightly painted over it with red (blue) and ivory paint.
 These are perfect for decorating a little boys room (nursery) or adding to any other nautical collection.

I'm working on a few "summer items" for the Etsy shop.
I made this fun piece of "Sailboat Art" by painting, distressing, and sealing a frame I had.
Next I created a sailboat from burlap, canvas, and dowel rods and layered it on blue ticking.
A little bit of twine completes the look!
You can find this piece in our Etsy shop:

Camping - Woodland Birthday Party

A camping themed birthday party for a great-nephew who turned 1 Easter Sunday and his grandpa who turned 50 three days later!
 I made this fun camping cake for my nephew and a giant chocolate chip cookie for his grandpa (my brother).
Here's some pictures of the decor that I did for their combined party.
The decorations I made/used for my brother.
My nephew's part of the party:
I made the chalkboard printable and the tent. I covered the "E" with denim and made little hobo bags (with prizes inside) for my three great-nephews out of bandanas. 
Here's a closer view of the chalkboard printable I made:
