Miscellaneous Projects

Working on my little projects makes me happy & completing them even happier!!  All of these projects were made using scrap wood (because I don’t like waste).  I’ve been busy cleaning/purging in my house which also motivated me to clean out my corner of the garage and move some scraps.  

I pulled my Cricut machine off the shelf & have been playing with that (I’m very inexperienced with vinyl). I made the ‘WELCOME’ sign using letters I cut.  I’d like a Silhouette so I can create & cut my own images but can’t justify until I have a little more experience.  Here’s a little tip I got from Pinterest: use dollar store contact paper for stencils.  I tried both my more expensive outdoor vinyl & the contact paper.  For me contact paper won; it was thinner and I got sharper lines when I used.  

After being dormant for months on end, I’m feeling pretty motivated to keep the blog going.  Stay tuned…


About southernflaircrafts

I am a very busy wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I work part-time in a flexible position as an Office Administrator for a financial advisory firm; I love the work I do and am especially grateful that it allows me to be a Mom first. I love to create!! Although I think my creativity was born with my first child, before children I would not have considered myself very creative. My mind is always wandering ahead to my next project, whether it's woodworking, sewing, paitning, or crafting with my kids. I also love blog-hopping (and blogging - I'm learning as I go); sometimes I see things I know I have got to make or I see a great creation and am insprired with ideas of my own. I especially like projects that rescue some treasure that would otherwise become another victim of the landfill.
