Blocks for MOPS

Getting ready to pack up the house and move in 2 weeks has put a bit of a damper on my creative productivity. But I did manage to whip up the rest of the leftover blocks from one of our MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) monthly crafts in time for the final meeting, the beginning of this month, which were sold for a little extra money for MOPS. My friend Kelli H. had already cut, sanded and painted all the blocks black, so I just had to mod podge a piece of designer paper onto one side of the block and then I let them dry before hot glueing a bit of fluff ribbon to the top and a clip to place a photo onto the fronts. It took me a couple of nap times to finish them but they did get done in the end, whew!

Little Boy Blue

Having issues with blogger as 3 of my posts are no where to be found that I put up yesterday...blah...I'll try to recap as best I can

 I made this for my friend Holly's little baby boy awhile back and am just now getting round to posting, it's been a little bit on the busy side here so crafting has been put on the back burner, much to my dismay. Peyton's room is decorated in classic Mickey, so I googled the bedding online to use as color inspiration.
Using scraps from my framed piece, I then stamped directly onto the twill tape with Stazon ink, using a phrase from the Picture This Hostess set.
