Making good on promises

Back in the spring I did a "contest" on my blog. The first 3 people to respond and repost were promised something handmade by me with in the year. So since nothing else inspires me like fall it was easy to get to work.

For Kelda I made these stacker blocks. I'll be making some more for myself I think.












For Suzanne I made this Pumpkin plauque. I loved it soo much that I had to make on for myself. Then I went and made a 12x12" one with a big pumpkin on it. They are my favorite! I went and bought Michaels, and Joanns out of wooden pumpkin shapes.
And since Sarah moved (send me your address Sarah!) I made her some fall cards. They're super cute, and way lighter to mail;).
I also made a new wreath for my front door. I am feeling mighty particular about wreaths as of late. Since I have a glass door, and you can see both sides of the wreath I had to figure out a way to make the back side as pretty as the front. I wrapped the whole thing in ribbon, and hid the wire to attatch the vines under the ribbon. Looks great! I also made two mini matching ones for on top of the buffet right inside my front door.








I was a crafting maniac this last week, and there have been no signs of stopping.
Today I painted over the mural I did in the girls room. It's been up for about five months, and I'm done looking at it. I've been working on some new artwork for their room. I'm really pleased with how it's turning out. Tomorrow I will make an oversided memo board for over Payton's bed. The ceilings in their room are really high, and I am too lazy to paint a border around the top of the room. The memo board should take up some wall space and soften the area. Hopefully I'll like it, I havn't been pleased with much of anything I've done in their room since they decided to share.

Yeay, you put your comments back on! Look at you miss crafty. I would love to help you with the message board in the girls room, I have been planning one for my girls room too.
Love all your fall creations!!
We should just get together and have a craft night. I volunteer my house if we do it at night when kids are in bed ;)

LOVE all of it! I'm totally going to copy your pumpkin board, and I definitely need to get me some of those Give Thanks blocks. Did you use a cricuit to cut the words?

Mamaappah said...

Yeah I used the cricket to do the "give thanks", thanks to mom in law! Both of those projects are way easy and fun. Cant wait to see your pumpkin board.
