Yeah! I've been crafting!

I am so happy with myself, I figured out how to fix my header!  It is not perfect yet, but at least It matches a little better.  I'll still play with it and re-size it.  ;)  I would love to learn how to make beautiful "scrapbook" type of a graphic.  Let me know if you can hook me up with a tutorial.  I have some digital paper and little images, but not sure how to layer them.  I'd love to find a simple way to make graphics.  :)

Also, I've been crafting this morning.  :) I found this kit at WM marked way down to only $5 so I grabbed it up because it matches my new color scheme.  I sewed all the little pennants and attached them to a ribbon.  I love it! I think it will go great across all my windows.  I am getting so excited about putting my room together.  Right now I have to go get all my great finds out of the trunk and put them in the junk room office so I can pack the car for our big trip for this summer!

We are so excited!  We will be going to Tennessee to visit some family friends who moved last year.  They were our go to baby sitters for years so the girls really miss their kids.  We will be attending the temple with their 2nd oldest as he is preparing to leave on a mission for our church for the next 2 years.  He is such a valiant young man. I know he will do great sharing the love of Christ with others in Idaho.  Then we will be going to Mississippi to visit Grammy (my mom).  The girls can't wait to see her new goats.

So I will be out of town for a week.  I will be so excited to get back to posting some about school when I get back.  Take care and have a good week blogging friends!

I also made these adorable bandana shirts for the girls to wear 4th of July.  Imagine little white leggings and cute bows in their hair! Adorable and easy!
Just had to add this.  It was Father's Day.  These are my traveling companions.  I love spending time with them!


  1. I like you header and the dresses are precious! Have fun on your trip!

  2. Hey! I usually make my headers on powerpoint. It is easy to layer on there and then save it at a jpeg to add it to your blog. Hope that helps :)
