Painted Dishes

I bought some ceramic dishes and a Sharpie Paint pen. On my Cricut I cut the letters in vinyl, peeled the letters out, applied it to the dishes and drew in the letters with the paint pen. I let it dry for about 10 minutes and then peeled the vinyl off. I baked them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. You can wash them and the letters won't come off. The egg platter is plastic, I sprayed it with a semi gloss primer on both sides and washed it. I cut the vinyl letters on my Cricut and applied them to the egg platter. I am having way too much fun with my Cricut!

T-shirts and My cricut

I was walking through a boutique and I saw a t-shirt and I knew I just had to make one. 
I bought the shirt for $4.00 at Walmart, then I washed and dried it. I cut the letters on my Cricut using glitter iron on material and ironed it on.
It just screams Texas!

Fixing Monogrammed Hand Me Downs

Cora Belle received these adorable hand me downs but they all had monograms across the front. I slowly removed all of the monograms but it left the material weak in some places, so I put some fun patches on to cover the spots. The dress has an embroidered patch I bought some time ago, I just zig-zagged around the edge and once across the center. The other two I ironed on 2 sided interfacing onto material, cut out the shape and ironed it onto the front. I then zig-zagged around the edges. I hope these clothes will be used many times.

Stuffed Animals for the Church Bazaar

I made some stuffed animals for the Church Bazaar (the stuffed animals booth). I made 6 owls with pockets, 5 fish on a stick, 2 birds and 2 turtles.  The turtles went fast so next year I will make more of them.

Mexican Squash

 I found this new recipe and it is DELICIOUS and simple. 

Mexican Squash

4 yellow squash - sliced and diced
1 medium onion - diced
1 can of Rotel tomatoes (original)
1 cup of cheddar cheese

In a large pan, brown the squash and onions.
Add the Rotel (use the mild for less heat),
cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add cheese and remove from heat.
I like to put mine in the fridge overnight so the
flavors have time to combine. 
Microwave for 30 seconds and enjoy

Camping Kites

When we go camping, I love to decorate our camp site. My grand kids and I were at the lake for a 6 days so I wanted the campsite to have a fun look, so I made kites. I took two jumbo sticks and glued them together. I sewed 3 sides of the kite, adding string, slipped in the sticks and sewed it closed. I made about 10 of them and the kids got to hang them in the trees. They match the garland hanging on the trailer. 
SO MUCH FUN!
