Garden Bench Update – Part 1 + The Silhouette Challenge

I’ve had this bench for years, my grandfather made it for me for my… 16th? birthday? It sat on my moms lawn for many years until it was delivered to our house my by uncle and my very happy mother. I intended to give it a new coat of white paint and power wash the plastic lattice last year but it never happened and the bench sat lonely (and ugly) beside the driveway. Well last weekend while we were waiting for the man to pick up the cows (they have literally gone to a farm upstate, we found a new home for them because they were a lot to handle with the new baby) my brother-in-law got antsy and decided they should move RIGHT THEN! So my husband, nephew and two brothers-in-law carried it down the slippery lawn to it’s final resting place.

Topiary Christmas Gift Tags

This year I got to be part of an awesome homemade gift tag exchange, there were over 30 participants and I received a giant envelope of loveliness. My tag was inspired by a file I found in the Silhouette Store for Garden Topiaries.

Peace On Earth Banner with Free Cut Files

When you walk into my home the first thing you see is a red bookshelf with a giant frame on it. During the fall I had the fingerprint tree from our wedding on display but I wanted to change it up. The frame is filled with a piece of foam core board covered in burlap so I knew what ever I added had to be light weight.

Always Thankful Sign – A Silhouette Sketch Pen Project

I have a pile of stained wooden blocks sitting just inside the craft room door. Aka, I’ve been tripping over them for about a year. So when my sketch pen holder (finally) came in I decided to use it for the November Silhouette Challenge. The links to all the other posts are at the bottom so don’t forget to check those out too! I believe there were 31 people this time around.

Christmas in July – Sleighbells Ring Sign

I’m slightly obsessed with Christmas, and especially Christmas Carols. Probably not a shocker if you’re already familiar with my Winter Wonderland Mirror or Jingle Bell Rock Wreath. We’re currently in the process of adding lots of shelves and a full wall of bookcases to the living room so I’m just going to need a lot more Christmas decorations.
