Catching up on craftiness!

Hey everyone - I have been working on a few different things lately (mostly our fun and growing Nutrilite business)  and been a little MIA with my blog! So sorry but excited to share some recent craft adventures with you!

here is some fun craftiness I have done in the last month or so :)

tried my hand at some new fun sugar cookie recipes. must say they were delicious


and while the piping was tedious it was really fun and can't wait to do some more (maybe st. paddy's day)


i made some fun little cookies for eliana's preschool (there were no leftovers so i took that as a good sign)



this is the canvas sign i made with the vinyl letters my brother did for me on my birthday - it is a nice addition to our dining area


my latest fun project was sprucing up "our mantle" makes me ready for spring/summer


the white flowers are coffee filter flowers. easy and so cute




our front door needed a spring wreath. i really wanted to make a full green one, but greenery is so expensive so i bought a clearance plant for $2 and went with a burlap,green combo. i love it


over christmas i got to go to a hobby lobby (how i miss that store) and  picked up some (lots) of fun fabric. one print i got was to cover our ottoman that is in the living room. it once belonged to the baby rocking chair but now a fun living room addition.  i really love this fabric, and wish i would have bought more!



lastly on my crafting "catch up" i am starting an adventure with a new friend here in VA. i had asked her if she wanted to do a craft booth with me and put together fun hair pieces and boy accessories like bow-ties and baby ties, because we already make these fun things for our own kids and could have fun sharing our craftiness with others! So with that we have started a facebook page - Crafted in Grace - please head over and like our page to get our latest updates and see our crafty creations. eliana and owen are modeling the most recent creations!  so fun!!!



Prayers and Blessings - Dawn
