Clean and Simple Cards

And another !

Clean and Simple Cards

Apparently I have to have a post for each card.  Go figure!

Clean and Simple Cards

I haven't been a very good blogger.  I get so involved in my life that I don't have time to blog about it.

Just started scrapbooking before Christmas.  I made some tags etc and got really addicted.
One of the things I am doing is taking an online class on how to make clean and simple cards.  Hopefully will teach me some of the basics and a few tips and tricks.  I like is very much so far and of course I am already behind.  One of the things we do is post our cards for the class.  I was really in a hurry and have a few booboos but did not have time to do them over.

And look out family I have all these cards and only you few to send them too..........

Grandchildren Photo Board

Grandchildren Photo Board:

So what do you get for grandparents for Christmas? After living a lifetime they certainly probably do not need a new clock or kitchen gadget. What they really want is your time and their memories. Jamielyn has a great way to give a gift that will encourage the memories to keep building with her grandchildren board. You can change out the pictures and continue to refill the board with new pictures for them to gaze upon their grandchildren everyday.PennyWisePresents

Hey Friends! I’m SO excited to be here today to share my grandkids board with you.

I’m Jamielyn from I {heart} Nap Time. I’m a hopeless chocolate addict. Sometimes known to eat chocolate chip cookie dough straight from the bowl. I’m a Mama to two chubbies and married to one sexy man. My days are full of chasing my little monkeys, cleaning messes (it’s like shoveling in a snow storm), pinterest, snuggling, avoiding the ever-growing pile of laundry, e-mails, play-dough, crafting and wondering, “Is it nap time yet?!”

A few weeks ago I shared how to make these boards at a craft night I co-hosted in AZ. They are SO simple to make and everyone loved making them! They are perfect for all the grandparents in your life.

Let’s get started shall we…

Supplies Needed:

  • Wooden Board (I found these pre-finished boards from hobby lobby-score!)

  • Grandkids Vinyl

  • Clothes Pins

  • Paint and brush

  • Glue

  • Embellishments

1. Take your pre-finished board or paint it and allow to dry.

2. Cut out the grandkids vinyl. Then remove the vinyl and place it on the board. You could also use a stencil for this.

3. Push vinyl down and remove transfer tape.

4. Paint clothespins and allow to dry. Once they are dry you can embellish these with paper, buttons, ribbon, etc.

5. Glue clothespins to boards.

Hang up your pictures and you have the perfect grandma gift!! They will love these… trust me!

Thanks for having me ladies! Find me blogging at I {Heart} Nap Time on FB, Twitter and Pinterest. Hugs!

I was Featured!

I was featured at this website Susie's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom and I am thrilled.  Welcome to all who visit. Some of the items are available on my Etsy Site Painted Treasures.  Some items I get to keep at least until my next favorite comes along.  Seriously if you are interested in anything that is not on the Etsy site just send me an email and I can let it go. 

I love to make things.  Not have things.  My mind and interests go off in all directions.  I have got to try everything.

Ash Wednesday

According to the Wikipedia Ash Wednesday, in the Western Christian calendar, is the first day of Lent and occurs 46 days (40 days not counting Sundays) before Easter. It is a moveable fast, falling on a different date each year because it is dependent on the date of Easter. It can occur as early as February 4 (February 5 on leap years) or as late as March 10.
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a sign of repentance. The ashes used are typically gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year's Palm Sunday are burned. In the liturgical practice of some churches, the ashes are mixed with the Oil of the Catechumens[1] (one of the sacred oils used to anoint those about to be baptized), though some churches use ordinary oil. This paste is used by the minister who presides at the service to make the sign of the cross, first upon his or her own forehead and then on those of congregants.

We didn't do this in the Baptist Church when I was a child but after I married I join the Episcopal Church and did follow the ceremony.  I loved it.  Very comforting for some reason.  Of course I love anything to with the children like this.  They are such little angels and all cute & dressed up.  

Have a great day! Celebrate! Spring is on it's way!    Beth
