Fish for dinner

This is going to be soooo good! A little old bay, butter and lemon juice. Wrap in foil and grill.

2x4 summer

I cut a 2x4 in different sized pieces. Painted them. I had to mix my colors because Bryon likes the dark colors so I had no pastels. Cut out some scrapbook paper and mod podged it on. Then painted the letters on. (I want a Silhouette!) I found some beachy clipart and glued them on.

Note to self....Paint letters on before modpodging. It took several coats of paint and you can still see streaks.

Toilet Paper Cabinet

I didn't get the measurements for this, but I think it holds 4 rolls of toilet paper. There are some twigs and a bird that go in the top. It was all ready to get packed in the truck for the farmers market before I remembered to take a picture of it.

Brent and Sasha's Wedding Card

I have had this card made and was just waiting for a wedding to get the picture. I stole the pic from Sasha's Facebook photos :) stuck it in the frame, glued the top down and mailed it off. I hope they liked it.

I have until August to get their gift made and take it with me when I go to PA.

Patriotic 2x4 decor

I made these. The blue is 6-3/4 inches. The red and white pieces are 5 inches. I only used one coat of paint because I liked the grain showing through. I didn't do a good job at keeping my stars the same size. They start out small and get bigger and bigger. Oh well. I still like it.

Owl Cabinet

SOLD Not a good pic but it is a dark dreary day here in MT. I had to use the flash. I will get a better pic when the sun is shining on Tuesday. This is approx. 16x22x6. The sides and inside and bottom are green. The owl is wood burned.
I like the way he did the pinecone cabinet better. With the door set in, so you can see the green. I think he can add the pieces of wood around the edge to the pinecone one. I really like that.

Flowers for Sharon

Sharon, here are your flowers. I love the polka dot ones!

My Gardening Decor

I bought a couple of 2x4's and am making some decor. I even used the chop saw for the first time!

The sides and back are my free sample of Valspar paint. It is Boxwood. It's such a pretty color.

Close up of the flowers. Oh yeah! I used the wood burner for the first time too.

Patriotic Wall Hangings

Pinecone cabinet

This cabinet is 16" by 22" and 5" deep. It's really pretty.

Rooster Signs

I love these!

Bee Sign

Here's what Bryon did with the bees.

Chicken Crossing

SOLD We made two of these signs for our neighbors whose chickens like playing in the road.

Tote Bag and Purse

These saw alot of my seam ripper. I kept sitting them aside and doing other things. I finally sat down and fixed them but they still aren't quite right. You can see the pleat in the tote bag, that isn't supposed to be there. I might use these as carry on since the purse fits inside.

Tractor sign

Sharon, this is for you and Bill if you want it. We think you'll get a kick out of it. Bryon took the whole door off for me to take pics. The John Deere is behind the door in the

More wood decor


Praying hands

Welcome sign

Fishing pole and fish welcome sign.

Patriotic Decor

United we stand eagle and a frog holding a flag.

"No Fishing" Dock

Someone didn't see the sign because it is facing the wrong way. This is really cute. I love the little Hills Brothers coffee can. It reminds me of A River Runs Through It.

Bunting Birthday Card

This is the card I made for Ashley's birthday. I love how it turned out. Who doesn't love buntings? The text is hand sewn. I wrote it on with pencil, poked holes in it and sewed with embroidery floss. I learned not to get my holes too close together or it rips the paper. I had the little yoyo flower just laying around so I stuck it on there too.

Fabric flower hair clips

These are another that are very easy to make. Bryon loves the camo one.

Hair clips

Yo-yo's. These are so fun to make. And they will look cute in any girls hair.
