Spring in Bloom

 I am LOVING how grey fabric looks with both teal and yellow. They are such SPRING-y combinations (even if we skipped right to summer here in the STL)

Disney Obsessed!

Having just finished the Disney Princess Half Marathon in Feb 2012, I am a tad bit Disney obsessed. It doesn't help that I have a 3.5 year old "princess" at home who fuels the Disney fire.

I made these bows with her in mind. I found these PERFECT red and white polka dot fabrics and couldn't imagine doing anything else with them!

Here it is, the NEW Spaghetti on the Wall!

 Well, I've taken some time off from writing the blog because I've been exploring some new crafting ideas!  With that, I have started an Etsy store (SpaghettiOnTheWall, of course!)  It will be specializing in fabric and felt bows/flowers for now. But keep an eye on it, because in the coming months I will be slowly adding other things. I plan to start with the option of paper banners and work my way up from there!

I will also keep blogging about current scrapbooking and baking projects. Although my baking has come to a screeching half since I quit sugar last October. 

Here are a few of the items up for sale in the store!

So stick around and see what's new!

Christmas Gifts #3 - RUN wall art

Jen is my race buddy.  We ran the Rock'n'Roll 5K in July, the Go! St. Louis Halloween 10K in October and in eight short weeks, we'll be running the Disney Princess Half Marathon!
For Christmas, I wanted to keep with our running theme.  I made this RUN wall art for her to hang all of her medals from finishing races. 
I got the letters at Hobby Lobby.  I drilled holes and glued the pegs in, then primed them.  I painted the letters to match her master bedroom.  Now the biggest problem will be what to do with all the extra medals when she runs out of pegs!

Christmas Gifts #2 - Explosion Box

I started my mom's gift months ago. A friend had shown me pictures of GORGEOUS explosion boxes that she had made and I was ready to try my hand at it.

I used Bo Bunny's Welcome Home collection for the box. I generally don't stick to "collections" when I do things, but this was such a huge undertaking, I thought starting out with everything that coordinated was a great idea :-)

I was excited to make the box interactive for my mom. There are tags to pull out with words and pictures inside. Some of the extras were "hinged" with brads so that they could be pulled aside.

I made the flower out of one of the patterned papers and one of the coordinating colors I bought to go with it. I cut each one 1/4" smaller than the previous, and used the end of my Xacto knife to "cup" the flower petals to give it depth.

I used a lot of the beautiful family photos we had taken in October!
It was definitely the Christmas present I was most excited to watch opened this year!

Christmas Gifts #1 - Yarn Wreath

I made this wreath for my aunt. She lives in a log home and it felt like the perfect rustic addition to her house!

Funny story, she flew in from Cleveland on Friday am before Christmas. I was in the living room and heard her say "Wow, this is a beautiful wreath!" I had a moment of "Oh crap!" because that was HER Christmas gift that I'd forgotten to take off my door and wrap. :-)
Luckily, my small partner in crime said "It's for YOU, Auntie!" to help avoid confusion ;-)
I followed the directions I found on Pinterest except that I used styrofoam instaed of the covered straw. I will DEFINITELY find covered straw next time, as the yarn stuck to the styrofoam and made it difficult to wrap.

I made all of the felt flowers, also using the tutorial from Pinterest. (I am LOVING Pinterest! - if you want to check out my boards, I'm here)
