The PERFECT sewn embellishment for my new favorite layout.
I miss my girls! I am not traveling for work anymore, but this was definitely one of my favorite parts. Every few trips, I would see my friends.
It was always the highlight.
 They get me.
Understand my creative quirkiness.
And love me anyway.
Miss you girls!
Here are a few more layouts that include sewing:

Fiskars School Supply Cake

I recently went back to my 'roots' and I am teaching school. I am working the public school system once again and loving it.
While I am recertifying in Texas, I am working as a long-term sub teacher in 2nd grade. Teachers never have enough supplies.
So this cake would be great even as a Christmas present.
Since school started we have almost gone through all of our glue sticks.

{I know it kind of looks like it is the leaning tower of school tools, but I think that is just the picture.}

I fell in love with the Chalkboard Stack by DCWV when I made this project. I love, love, love it. The chalkboard trend is alive and kickin around here. photo schoolsupplycake3_zpsac5f5f98.jpg

I also created these mini supply cupcakes. Thought they would be great for the office staff and teacher aides. Just a few post its, paper clips, and a bag of erasers (sprinkles!) on top.

Fiskars Vetrans Day Banner

I received a text from a friend recently asking why I hadn't posted on my blog. She said she missed my projects. I am so glad someone is reading this!

I know I recently have the excuse that this full time job is kicking my butt...blah blah blah. But it really is. I love to take moments and go into my craft area and get creative, but the mojo is just not there.

These projects I will be posting are from the past. Before the creative bug went bye bye.

I am especially proud of this sewn garland. Yes. I did that sewing It is the first time I used my sewing maching that I have had for years and years. It still scares me, but I feel like I am starting to tame it.
This banner really needs to be packaged up and mailed to my sweet brother and sister-in-law. They live this 'god bless the usa' full force. He is in the Navy and they are ready for another move across the country. I am grateful for him and their family every day for what they do to support and protect this country.
