Mod Podge Father's Day Breakfast in Bed Tray

What hubby wouldn't love breakfast in bed for Father's day?
And this tray just makes it THAT much more fun!
Pin It 
Want to make one for the special Dad in your life? 
It's easy!
Pick Your Plum Vinyl
Fabric Mod Podge 
Start by painting your tray. 
 I chose red my hubby's favorite color.
Then I got my PYP permanent vinyl and cut it on my Cricut 
to say "Mom's Diner" which I added to the side.
Then I cut my fabric, which I just love by the way.. so cute with all the little breakfasty things on it!
Then Mod Podge 
it onto the tray and then over top.
Then stand back and admire it
cause it's really cute!
Can't wait to bring the hubby breakfast in bed for Father's day!
He always makes me crepes for Mother's Day with brown sugar sour cream filling and warm fruit preserves!
I'll probably make him my famous Chocolate Chip Scones

Patriotic Cupcake Liner Pins or Hairbows

Due to Inclement weather this year's Memorial Day parade in my town got cancelled.  Boo.
We were going to make some of these cuties for my Girl Scouts to hand out at the parade!
Pin It
Want to make some?  They are super easy and inexpensive.  About $5 to make up to 75!
Perfect for Girl Scouts.. and don't forget you can make these for 4th of July too!
Cupcake Liners 2 sizes
Glue Sticks
Craft Glue
Scrapbook Paper
Punches (optional)
Pins or Slip Clips
Start by gluing 2 large and 2 small cupcake liners inside out together.
Make a scrapbook paper circle and punch out USA.
Glue them together.
Flip over and use the craft glue to glue your ribbons.
Now grab your glue gun and attach the pin to some felt
and then glue to the back over the ribbon.
(leaders you can use a low temp gun or glue it for the girls depending on the age!)
Then show off your Red, White and Blue with PRIDE!
If you want to make a hair clip, do the same steps then glue a slip clip to a piece of ribbon.
Then hot glue to the back over the ribbons.
And rock the patriotic look!
Home of the free BECAUSE of the brave!

My Very First Dress!

Whoo hoo!  
That's it.. that's all I've got.. cause I'm soo excited that I made my VERY first dress!
Pin It 
I have had many failed attempts at skirts.. but this was EASY!  
Just two pieces that I sewed together
with an elastic and a button in the back for easy fitting.
And of course a BIG giant ruffle,
'cause let's face it, no outfit is complete without one!
And as you can tell, my sweet friend Grace really LOVES it.
I'm soo happy I decided to bond with my sewing machine.. *sigh*
