Decorative Kitchen Tiles

My husband has been working out of town, so I am getting a lot of things done around the house, number one chore was paint the kitchen. We have plaster walls (done by hubby) that have never been painted since our remodel almost 10 years ago, so the kitchen really needed some paint. For my backsplash I picked a chocolate brown, so I decided to ad a decorative element, I took standard 6 x 6 ceramic tile from the hardware store, painted the unfinished edges brown, cut out live laugh love and the scroll pattern on the cricut, and used modge podge to adhere them to the tiles, then I used plate hangers from hobby lobby and 3M hooks to hand them up.

Recipe Paper Bag Mini-Album

I made a paper bag mini album for a good friend who was having a housewarming party, I thought she could use the album to record her family recipes in.

Birthday Goody-Bags

Tonight we had a surprise Birthday Party for a good friend of mine, she turned 30, and we decided to make it "kid" themed, so we surprised her and went to Chuck-E-Cheese to play games. I made these goody bags for everyone, I used a fiskars background stamp for the Happy Birthday, and Fiskars Happy and You Know It stamps for the girls face and the dog, then I heat-embossed them in black. I think they turned out really cute.

My favorite quote of all times...

How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon...
December is here before it's June...
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
