Hey There Everyone!!
Welcome to
If you came here from
You're on the right track
If not you'll want to make sure to go to the
so you don't miss anything!!

So for my project today I was inspired by
these ladies
These chicks make me want to go out and buy power tools
and paint everything pink
So I went to our local hardware store and bought a 2x4 for like $2
and it just so happens that our hardward store has a
(that's a guys name not a power tool)
Since I've been there quite a bit, talking to Lance,
he taught me how to use our water softener,
fix our screen doors, work the topsy turvy tomato plant etc
he kind of gets this scared look when I walk in now
anyway, I asked him if he could recommend
an inexpensive saw that I could cut the 2x4 up with
He literally had horror written all over his face
and then he said "pick it up on Friday"
So...get yourself a saw or get yourself a Lance
Unless you know how or have a husband who does this kind of stuff...
My HUSBAND does not
I love him and he is REALLY HOT
but he doesn't saw stuff
I'm sure the
are probably hanging their heads in shame right now

Look how cute it turned out!!
Sorry, I just can't believe I tried something and

This project took literally pennies to make and think of all the gifts you could make!!
I used
for the words
This is a NEW FONT which will be available starting today!!
I love how easy it is to work with
They don't break apart and They're already sticky
so you just STICK and Rub
Paper is October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket and the Ribbon is Offray
I also want to show you a before and after pick of our stairwell

This is the EAD WEEKLY STEAL From last week
You can't get it anymore, sorry charlie

But there is a new

and if you click above you can get one before it's gone!!

Off you go to check out
