This penguin needs a something to hang from his flipper. I'm going to add a snowflake but my friend wants a fish. You could do whatever you wanted. I haven't decided whether I'm going to give him ear muffs or a hat yet but when he's finished I'll add another picture.
This reindeer isn't totally finished either. I had his legs cut out but they broke while I was sanding them so I need to cut some new ones out. He may have a scarf too so I'll post another picture then.
This cute elf is not totally finished yet but I thought I would post him anyway. He needs a bell on his hat and on his shoes. He also needs his little nose so when I get him all finished I'll take another picture. Finished $15 Unfinished $10
I've been trying to come up with some more Christmas crafts, this is one that I started the other week and today I finally got time to finish it. I was rushing so I just quickly thought of what designs to put on the presents and I don't love them but they're ok! I need to go and get some silver ribbon, I quickly taped some ribbon on that I had, it doesn't match at all but I wanted to show what I will do once I get the ribbon I like. I'm also not sure I like the mouth but oh well, it's the first time I've made it. I have LOTS more fun ideas that hopefully I can make this week if I have a minute. Let me know what you think! He would cost $15 unfinished and $20 finished!(He is 4ft tall)
I think this turned out SUPER CUTE! Plus I think I finally figured out some prices. So for this turkey and the witch it will be $10 if you want just the pieces and then you can put it together by yourself. If you want it fully finished it will cost $15. Also the ghost and tombstone will be $12 unfinished and $17 finished, (just because it uses more wood). If you want one just let me know!!!
I would love to make any of these things for anyone. I haven't really come up with prices yet, plus some of these things are sold by Janae so you can get the vinyl from her and she has really good prices. All the wood crafts are available through me though so let me know if you want something and I'll let you know how much it is when I figure it out!!!
We made these blocks for our craft group last month. Once again my great friend Janae picked out the great fonts and pictures but I came up with the idea. I love working with her, it's so much fun and I get to make these great crafts, thanks Janae! http://www.thoughtsinvinyl.blogspot.com/
This is another idea that my friend Janae and I came up with. I was at my other friends vinyl party and I saw all these cute pictures and came up with this idea. With the help of Janae we came up with these, I think they're so cute and something different than just words.http://www.thoughtsinvinyl.blogspot.com/
These are the first "big" things I have made with my scroll saw. I have sketched out so many fun things but we'll see when I get round to actually making them. We have Super Saturday this weekend so hopefully once that is over and I've cut out all that wood I can start making more fun things, I can't wait!(I copied this witch from one that my amazing friend/Aunt Trudy had. It was so easy and so much cheaper that buying it)
These are a few Super Saturday projects we did in our ward. I helped come with these ideas with LOTS of help from my great friend Janae. She has a vinyl company and she's amazing at what she does and is so patient with me because I take forever to decide. Her blog is http://www.thoughtsinvinyl.blogspot.com/ and she's the BEST!
At a craft fair a few years ago I saw these lovely ladders that had different seasonal decorations that you could change. I fell in love with it but didn't want to spend tons of money so I decided to make my own. (I need to take some new pictures because I have a valentines set and some of the sets aren't finished in the pictures).
I'm finally doing it!!! I've been wanting to start a craft blog for such a long time and I think I finally have time to do it, well maybe a little bit of time. This past spring we got a miter saw, I was so excited about it but I still needed a scroll saw. I finally purchased one in September and I've been so happy ever since. I've always wanted to make wood crafts but life with 4 kids is pretty busy, then you add on callings, helping with school and just general house work, there really isn't that much time to do the things I like to do. I finally decided I'm just going to make time, of course having the tools makes that a lot easier.
Anyway I'm sure this blog won't be like all the other GREAT craft blogs that I love but oh well, it will be my little blog and I'm excited about it. I just barely started making things but for now I'll add some of the things I have made in the past. Hopefully I'll get better and better, I'm just so happy I'm finally starting something, YAY!!!
I was born in Harrogate England where I grew up. I got married Dec 2000 to my husband Steven who is from Idaho Falls, Idaho which is where we live now. We spent the first 4 years of our married life in Rexburg, Idaho where Steve was going to school. Steve finally graduated Dec 2004, I was so happy because he could find a job and we could build our house. Steve works at Nitro Security and I stay at home with the children which I love and feel so blessed to be able to do. We now have 5 chidren which keeps me VERY busy but I wouldn't have it any other way!
For a long time I've been wanting to start making crafts but life is always so busy so I never seem to have the time. I still don't have the time but I did finally get some saws so I decided I would make time to do something I love. I'm just starting out so hopefully everything will get better and better! I'm just excited to be doing something I love, YAY for saws and tools!!!
