Pinterest Find!

So as I was doing my nightly check of Pinterest crafts I came across a pin of 7 simple ways to help in the craft room. Since my craft room could always use tweaking here and there, like whose doesn't?! So I was looking through the suggestions and I found them really good! I am sharing the URL and hope you can get some inspiration from this site as well! Always feel free to share you ideas with me as well!

Cupcake Crazy!

So I have recently begun taking a speech class. When I started let's just say I was less than happy to be taking it. Now four weeks in and I'm loving it. Today I had my first major 5 minute speech, the demonstration speech. I got to pick any topic to speak about while demonstrating, so why not do something I enjoy, I asked myself. So I did. I decorated cupcakes for a phenomenal grade on my speech! Lets just say though after decorating 24 cupcakes for my birthday for yearbook three weeks earlier and then another 24 cupcakes for my homeroom, 24 cupcakes for easter, and the 40 for my speech class I can officially say I am cupcaked out! So here are a few of the designs I used for my speech! These are not the only designs I did but they are the only pictures that came out well.

A Special Canvas

So with my love of painting quotes on canvases I also have the love of reading. I take very good care of my books just so everyone knows. Well, for this canvas I needed something to make it be unique so I used book pages. Keep in mind that the pages I took were from pages of a book my mom had that had no cover and was missing pages already. To get this one to turn out perfect the way I wanted it to, I made the saying and photo on a word document and then printed it out to trace. I am pretty sure this is one of my most favorite pieces of art I have made!

Canvas Crazy

So if you actually do follow me on Pinterest you would know that I have a love for painting canvases an a love for quotes. So today I thought I would share some of my favorite with you! With these canvases I tend to pick out colors and a quote and just get to work. I honestly wouldn't be to surprised to see my mom go bankrupt because I buy so many canvases. Ha!
