My Christmas "Wordle"

Have you ever heard of "Wordle"?  It's this really cool free site where you can input your words and make your own "Subway" type artwork.  You can choose your font, colors, arrangement,'s so neat!  I love it!  I am attaching a link below to the most recent one I made.  I'm thinking of printing it out on the printable cotton sheets and then putting it on a t-shirt for Christmas :o)  Think of the possibilites....they are endless :o)  Try it out and let me know what you come up with!  Happy "Wordleing" :o)

Taylor's 7th Birday Celebrations

My Baby turned 7 on Thursday 8/12!!  I can't believe it!  Time sure flies when you're having fun.  She is by far the best thing I have ever done in this world.....I love you so much Peanut!!!  The 1st picture is of her and Buster showing off her "Birthday morning family tradition"!!  Every year we wake her up with donut holes in the shape of her age and of course a candle!!!  Very cute and she absolutely loves it.  I love family traditions - I think everyone should have at least a few special ones unique to their family.   The next picture is of the "Big Top Cupcake Cake" I made her - what a fiasco!!  I was up til 3:00 am finishing this beauty  Blob - can't you tell?  NOT!!!  Let's put it this way.....I am not going to get hired anytime soon at "Ace of Cakes" :o)  The 3rd picture is her posing in front of her Birthday Bunting I made her - this was my first attempt, I painted the letters on it this time using fabric paints, but next time I'm going to do applique or embroider them so they will show up more.  I think she loved it and could care less how the letters were put on :o)  We used it in the house for a few days before the "Big" day and then took it to the Tea Room on Friday, 8/13 for her official Birthday party with 5 of her closes girlfriends :o)  We told them all to dress "frilly" for the occasion and they were all so cute!!!   The table turned out so cute I think!!!  I made the table topper out of some Heather Bailey fabric and then found some cute .50 cent bowls on clearance and I placed them around the table and filled them with candy, gummy worms, M&M's, Sour Patch Kids, all their Faves :o)  The party was a huge success and very easy for Mom!!!

Welcome to my first Blog post!  I thought I would start by sharing some of my home decor projects from around our house.  I am still trying to figure out how to format and post on here so forgive me if my posts are all "skewed" format wise until I get the hang of it!  I am really excited that I created my blog header on my own today using Adobe Illustrator.....just got the Adobe suite and I know nothing so I'm "wingin it" - that's usually "how I roll" and do best with learning!!!!   Thanks for following me and check back often for new pics of my projects!  If you'd like to know how I made any of the items below just email me and I'll be happy to share :o)  Cammie
