Just checking in to let everybody know that I have been sick and had a lot of family stuff going on, so not much time for crafting. I am not going to be posting as much with everything going on, but I will share as I have time for crafting. I hope to be back in full swing soon, but I will still be checking in with everybody as I have time. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon, because I am really behind on scrapbooking at the moment.

Batgirl Shirt

It seems like all I have been making lately are t-shirts.  Here is another shirt that I made for Kaylee.  She loves Batman, so I wanted to make her a pink Batgirl Shirt.  I used the Batman Cricut Cartridge for all of the cuts on this.  I put the Bat Symbol on the front and I then put Batgirl across the back of the shirt.

Here is the front of the shirt.
Here is the back of the shirt.

Easter Bunny T-shirt

This is the second easter shirt that I made for Kaylee.  I used the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge for the base of the bunny and used white fabric paint for it.  I then used George and Basic Shapes to make the ovals and triangle for the nose.  The eyes and mouth were freehanded with a paintbrush and the fabric paint. I then used the Don Juan Cartridge for the font to put her name under the bunny face.

Bunny Mailbox

I bought one of the unfinished mailboxes at Hobby Lobby and turned it into a little bunny box for Kaylee to put some Easter stuff in. I removed the flag off of the side and painted the whole box white. I used fun foam to freehand and cut the ears and used hot glue to attach them. I then hot glued google eyes and some puff balls to the box for the details. Finally, I used a black paint pen to add the mouth and lines above the eyes.

I am entering this into the following Challenges:

Decorate to Celebrate Baby Shower Challenge: Design Team Project

It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  This time, we are challenging you to make a decoration or party supply for a baby shower.  Be sure to stop by and see all of the projects by the design team and enter the challenge here:

For my project, I made a little table decoration for a baby shower.  I found these little mini lanterns at hobby lobby and decorated them to look like hatching baby chickens.  I used the Create a Critter Cartridge to cut the face and egg shell and then used hot glue to attach them.  I also added a small premade bow with hot glue to the front.  For the sign, I used the Storybook Cartridge and welded the marquee shape in the Gypsy to make it stand up and used the Batman Cartridge for the font.  This was cut with white vinyl and outlined in black.  I finally added some faux stitch lines around the edge of the marquee shape.

Homemade Bunny Ears

I broke out the sewing machine this week and made these bunny ears for my family.  I made the grey ones for my hubby, the pink with a bow for Kaylee, the white with a bow for me and the rest are for my three sisters.  I used the pattern and directions for these over at  The only thing I did different, was that I used a pipe cleaner inside the ears so they would be easy to fold and I used hot glue to attach them to the headbands.  I bought the headbands at Hobby Lobby.
