Craft Day!!

Well today I decided to stay in and make crafts all day!!

I made these:

  1. Cupcake Stand
  2. Coasters, Candle Holder, Hot Plate
  3. Vase covered in rope

Cupcake Stand

I went to the salvation army and found three black rod iron candle holders. I got all three for $2. It was awesome!! I then went to Hobby Lobby and found two different size wooden plates. I spray painted the candle holders teal and the plates white. I then glued the tall holder in the middle of the two plates. I want to use the other two in the middle of cake pans. But haven’t found the right ones I am looking for.

Coasters etc.

I went to Home Depot and bought the tiles they are all at different prices but none are more that $1. Then you will need to buy the clear spray it is in the spray paint aisle. I also bought some Modge podge form Michaels. You take a piece of scrapbook paper and glue it to the tile using modge modge then take the clear spray and spray it all over about three times. It will dry and you have a beautiful and unique coaster.


This one is very east as well!! I took an old glass vase that I found in my basement and wrapped some rope I had in my craft box about half way up the vase and but beige and purple flowers in them. I love it and think it turned out great!!

I had a fun time making all these crafts!!!!

September 11th


A day to remember.....

I can’t believe it has been 10 years since our nation was attacked. I remember the exact place and moment it happened. I am so thankful for the freedom I have in this country and for the men and women who graciously chose to allow that for myself. This morning I went with my mom and sister and her husband Scott to a 9/11 ceremony at my High School. It was done by my community and two others around my town. It was very special and sad. The speaker was wonderful!!

God bless this Nation and All the People!!

Well for the past year I have lived in a 1 bedroom apartment! It has been a great experience for me and I have learned a lot of things about myself. I have realized I can actually live on my own.LOL. Well even though I was happy with where I lived the price was going up and so that meant I had to scoot on out and find a new place. I began in the spring to really pray and pray about where I was going to move to and just asked God for guidance. At the beginning of July I let the apartments know I was moving out at the end of August, I was a little nervous not having a place to live. Well a week or so after, I was asked by some family friends if I wanted to rent there house!!!! So GOD has plans for me!! My new house is absolutely fabulous!!! It is a 2 level house, three bedrooms, 2 bath and a full basement with a 2 car garage. It is a cute little home and I am adding my own little touches everyday!! It looked great when I moved in and everything was fixed up for me, the only thing I want to do do is paint the kitchen!! I have bought a few items and have many other things planned!! But yes I know I am only renting but I plan to be here until I get married one day or until God has a different plan for me!! Here are some pictures of my HOUSE!!
