“Come Thou Fount” Stenciled Burlap Table Runner
  You may have figured out by now that I love old hymns.  If the canvas hymn art (Be Thou My Vision) didn’t tip you off, maybe it was the spring vinyl art (All Things Bright and Beautiful), or the free Thanksgiving printable (For the Beauty of the Earth).  But I’m adding a new project to my hymn collection with this Come Thou Fount Stenciled Burlap Table Runner!     So, what is it about classic hymns that I love so much?  Well, I’m a music teacher, so the music element is a given.  But it’s actually more the text […]
“Grateful Praise” Thanksgiving Chalkboard Printable

Thanksgiving Place Card Holders
    I have been looking for an excuse to make place cards like Lauren over at The Thinking Closet for a while now…ever since buying my own set of Silhouette sketch pens!  Plus those little Gold Animal Place Card Holders are just too darn snazzy.  So I freely admit that she is the inspiration behind the idea for these place cards!  But I put my own Thanksgiving spin on them ;-)     Thanksgiving was the perfect excuse opportunity I needed to try making my own place cards.  Seriously, it was too easy!  I […]

I freely admit that I am not the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them!
