Alphabet Banner- Guest posting for The Wood Connection and a GIVEAWAY!

Hey everyone!  I'm over at The Wood Connection today sharing the alphabet banner I made for the baby's room!

Last time I guest posted I was 22 weeks pregnant and on an organization kick,  now I am 33 weeks and its crunch time getting the baby's room done.  I headed over to The Wood Connection knowing I wanted to make something cute for the nursery.  I was immediately drawn to their cute pennants for banners.  The only problem is that this baby doesn't have a name yet.  (We are having a really hard time in the name department this go around!)  So what else can you have a banner say?  The alphabet!  I collected 26 of their pennants and headed home to get to work.

Wanna see how it turned out?

So much fun!

And now, thanks to The Wood Connection, I have the first corner of the nursery officially done!

For more details head on over to The Wood Connection and check it out!

A Black Cat

Hello everyone!  Yes,  I'm still here and I'm still alive.  :)  We have about 6 more weeks till baby comes so I'm not moving very fast these days but I did manage to get in a Halloween craft!  It was my Mom's birthday a couple weeks ago so I used the push to make us both a cute Halloween kitty for our front doors.

And I just love him to bits!

He was a ton of fun to make too.

I started out making a paper template, transferring the template to a piece of plywood, and cutting the pieces out with my jig saw.  I glued him together using gorilla glue.  (crazy good stuff... just dont use to much!)  Then I taped off his eyes and painted him black.  After he was dry I hit the edges with the sander to bring out the detail and painted on the eyes.  Give him a coat of sealer and the finish him off with a Halloween ribbon and some wire whiskers.  (just drill little holes in the side of his face and stick some wire in.)

Easy peasy and oh so cute!!

As always I'm linking to these great parties and events
