Crafts from my past

I've been loosing some of the pictures of things I have made so I  to put them here on this blog since this is my craft surfing blog to keep track of my stuff. You can look if you want but it mostly for me to refer back too.

Sorry I know that I said I would make a tutorial in Aug. but I had some unexpected surgery and can't do anything major until Oct.  I would much rather be crafting than healing, but sometimes I just don't get my way.

This is a matching game, with family members pictures mod podge on them.

This I made for my Grand Daughter, each picture is mod podged on individual peaces of wood for a 3D affect.

What's for dinner? what every mother hates to hear. the stick represent the meals we like, family members pick the meals and puts them in the day they want to eat them. I do my shopping for this. (more info in comment section if you want to know more)


Home another 3D piece. the lettering is done in vinyl to give a tile look. I also made a freestanding frame around it, it can be hung or set on  a shelf.

"Home sweet Home" wood blocks, mod podge scrapbook paper with the edges of the paper burnt  with black vinyl lettering.

both of these for my freestanding frames with a quote on them in vinyl.




The family proclamation to the world. I enlarged the proclamation and then double stick taped family pictures around the edges, and made a frame for it.

Candles stick holders, I bought  some wood pieces at a hardware store and added some other pieces to it.

Wood Puzzle, this one is very hard to get right. It's a very challenging puzzle with more than one way to put it together. But very fun.

Recipe card holder. You magnet your recipes on the metal.

USA! I had some vinyl with the three different colors on it I wanted to try and thought this would be great for a USA project. these are just big blocks.

Wood stacker,  wish the letters stood out longer, but love the saying "The most important thing a dad can do for his children is to love their mother."

6 puzzles in one. 

Large table top tic tac toe game.
Sorry I will be back to update more pictures, but I've ran out of time.
See ya soon.

    1. What I would need to know is...
      do you do wood work on your own because everything on that craft I made myself except the hooks. If not I might Have to come up with an easier version for those who don't.

    2. I think I could figure out how to improvise one...just wondering what kind of hooks you used, what is the quote printed out on, and on the black hanging numbers, is that written out in chalk or what is it?

      Delete
    3. the hook are by the cup hooks at home depot or lowes, I believe Wal-mart may have them too. They are kinds L shape, I bend the hook a little flat so that you can get the numbers on and off easier.
      the quote is done in vinyl, I cut vinyl so I didn't order this anywhere, I designed it myself. Same with the numbers.

  6. Can you tell me the size frame you made for the first picture? I do all my own wood work and am making this one with a few friends in May. Also is it vinyl for the words or just printed on paper? Thanks! Love all your ideas

  14. I want to know how you did the meal plan/popsicle stick thing. I think this would get my kids excited about learning to cook. It looks fairly simple, my question is are the meals on the left ones that you need to make and the ones on the days things that you did make or are the ones in the days things that you already made and the things on the left ones that you draw from to make? Just wondering if you had a good system. Sorry for the confusing wording.

    1. Sorry, it's taken so long to get back with you. the sticks in the big hole is just all different meal that my family likes. and the ones in the days of the weeks are the meals we are making that day.
      Nobody ever knows what they want for dinner, and I never know what to make, so I made this, I had it to the loved ones and tell them to pick what they want for dinner. Then I do all my shopping for the week in what they picked.
      I do however have the right to change the order around. So that if I need an ingredient that works for more than one meal I can put those meals closer together. Same as If I need an easier meal for a certain night because of other commitments.
      Hope this helps.

  16. I'm with Momma Brown. How do you make that? My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, and I would love to make something like this as a gift for my parents when we announce it (I may be a little presumptuous, but I like to think ahead).
