New headers, and Some signs....

I know I'm horrible. It's been a blah week, ever have those? I love my little blog and get so excited to post things as they come up but this week has just been blahhhh! Not about my blog, just nothing that I felt worthy of posting, blah with my crafting. It's just been an off week. Anyways I am back. I promise I will have all my organizing posts caught up by Monday. You will be sick of me before the week starts :) I shouldn't promise but I am. Anywho. I have done like zero crafting except for a few little things. I do have some goodwill redos to share soon. I hit up the goodwill a couple of weeks ago for the first time since this summer! They have missed me tons I'm sure of it.


Meet my newest obsession....signs. They are so easy, fun, and the possibilities are endless! I really liked this one not sure about the big pink letters but it's still cute? I used a turquoise color to paint it, sanded it down around the edges then went over it with minwax walnut stain and wiped it down. Now let me just say I recently finally just started using minwax and I like it however some things it seems a little much and it sure does not wipe off much. It says to leave it on 3 minutes then wipe uh no, I wipe immediately or none of it would come off. Anyone? Am I alone?


This sign I made by tearing up a piece of sccrapbook paper that has old looking bookprint on it ( make my heart go pitter patter, love this paper ) and then I cut letters with my cricut on cardstock and used them as stencils, then sanded some more over the letters. 


These blocks are bigger than my normal, 5x5. I really love the colors on this. I don't do much decorating for Valentines Day but found the prettiest vintage valentines papers I couldn't resisit. I stink at embellishing and that is something I am working on. I have so many wonderful ideas and images in my head but when it comes to putting it together I stink. 


Completely off topic I made this header for my other blog. What do you think? I am pretty proud of it. The only thing borrowed is a the free frame and heart that came together from Cutest Blog on the Block ( love them by the way ) the rest I put together on a couple of different editors one being

This one I was playing around trying to create my own for this blog. It's not there yet, I need new pictures as in I need to make some cuter stuff to put in the header. And it needs more embellishing which again I stink at. I just got a new header but really am thinking I want one with my photos in it and more me? Not sure what I want half the time. I am so obsessed with changing my blog around until it feels perfect to me. 


Last but not least, isn't he freaking precious??? We were at grams and gramps and he was sportin papas hat. So adorable!! Ohhh and he is totally walking now! He's been steppin but while we were there he was walking for bananas lol. Literally.
That's all, I know I stink. Ohhhh hey, Notice I am now , yippee!! I bought the domain almost a year ago and finally switched it over. Go me.

Also if you want to check out my other blog it's pretty boring right now, but will be recipes, couponing, and family things. I have actually posted more over there this week then here. Here is the link It's a work in progress. I made it last year and never touched it.

Oh and notice my little owl in the address bar up top? 

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!!
