FOUND: two pieces of leftover MDF Trim in the garage
HAD: tons of scrapbooking paper and stickers I never use anymore
BOUGHT: metal clips and thick wire
MADE: Mother’s Day Gift
Used my circle punch to punch out enough circles for the letters.
Added Stickers to circles and cut out extra shapes and the heart and mod-podged them on as well.
Screwed on the metal clips and wrapped the wire for a holder and its the perfect grandma holder for all of the kids art work and treasures!

Tressa is FOUR and my last few cakes haven’t been that homemade!
Store bought frosting for Matthew’s birthday but I did attempt some decoration:)
And Michael’s birthday is New Year’s Eve and it being right after Christmas I am totally burned out in the baking department so Grandma came through with a cupcake and candle – Sorry Michael!
So, I got it together and used this tutorial (even has a video to watch) to make my first ruffle cake. Ended up being even easier than I thought and not too much time either!
And of course we had to put some Strawberry Shortcakes on top!
Yep – I got her her very own sewing machine!! She loves it!

Two Separate Bridesmaid Dresses in the SAME color – one from my sister and one for $4.99 from Goodwill.
Ruffling all those strips. Found a really easy way to ruffle, turn your tension all the way up and your stitch length all the way up and wha – la = Ruffle!
Used the lining of the bridesmaid dress for the “under skirt” part, using the bottom for the finished hem.
This is the actual hemline of one of the dresses that I made into a hair flower.
My one and only precious little girl! Just recently finished a fur shrug so she can wear this through the winter.
