I have always had a hard time curling my hair. I have very thick hair and no patience to do it! Though, I love the look! I recently found this YouTube video showing an easy no heat curl. I tried this and seriously in 1 hour my hair was curly! Too bad I recently cut all my hair short or else it would have worked better. I didn't have a head band so I just took some elastic and sewed the ends together. I love this easy way to get a cute look!
I saw this cute pumpkin craft on You Craft Me UP and had to make one! I wasn't able to get the wire cheap so I used ribbon instead. I used my Silhouette SD for the vinyl. I don't have a saw so I needed the wood cut in the store. Lowe's claims that no one in town will cut a 4 x 4, only 2's. So I went to Home Depot, wasn't a problem at all. They were so nice about it.
We had a lot of fun on this project, my husband even helped!! The kids and I sanded and painted. I'm also impressed with myself that it only took 1 week for me to finish from start to finish!! Now, to finish my Halloween wreath.....

My little boy has been bugging me to get him a watch so he can be "like daddy." So I wanted to try to make one on my Silhouette SD. Though, a paper watch won't last long it was nice to get some practice on my Silhouette. It was good practice for grouping, welding and print/cut. Plus my son loved it! And he's been so careful with it that it hasn't broke yet.
I finally finished my skirt! I have a habit of getting really excited to start a project and when they don't go my way, I put them on hold! I found this really cool book Sew Serendipity. It comes with 3 patterns and 18 different ways to use them. I have always eyed things and never used patterns before, so it was a little frustrating because I ended up making the skirt way too big, then I left it for 2 months until I picked it up again. I wasn't so sure how I'd like it with 3different crazy patterns but I love it now!
I've been so busy getting ready to fly back home to Idaho that I didn't even realize that we will be gone for St. Patrick's Day. I love celebrating the holidays with fun little crafts. I have been eying this cute pot of gold idea from It Is What It Is for some time, now I'm sad we won't be able to make it. So hopefully you can. Go to her site HERE to download the tag for free.
I LOVE my Silhouette SD machine. This morning the kids and I made these 3D roses and this cute little card for daddy while he was away at class. This was the first time he had ever receved flowers;-) and he can keep these forever! I wish I had zoomed in on the little tiny heart on the bottom. It says, "for u" in tiny print. This machine is so awesome! It can cut the smallest details!
