Grumpy Cat Cross Stitch

You'll notice I've been on a cross stitch kick lately...with Grumpy Cat! The one above, I made for a friend.

I saw this on vacation and knew I had to make it a cross stitch too! But this one is for ME.

It's so easy to make any picture a cross stitch. I just draw it free hand on the aida cloth and fill it in with 'x'es. Use a pencil in case you mess up- like I do..

Handmade Anniversary Card with Repurposed Rose Petals!

This is such a cool idea! Save your flower petals from a memorable bouquet from your Honey, dry and press them and then use them to make a heart for a card or scrapbook page!

I'm super impressed with myself right now.

Always gotta stay goofy!

Remove paint splatter from wood trim AFTER IT DRIES!!

So Oh my gosh! This is so amazing! When I bought my house, I noticed that the previous painters did a really bad job of coloring in the lines (see above). It really bothers me when I see paint splatters all over these lovely wood borders :( But these had clearly been there a long time and were definitely dried paint so...what to do?

You knew I already had an answer, right? Of course you did! Look how beautiful they came out!!

Here's another BEFORE picture. I just took an old toothbrush and dipped it in rubbing alcohol and brushed it away.

All gone!! Awesome. Easy. Done.
Here's another one I did^^  Before..
..and the amazing after!
