Itty Bitty Kitty Sign

So the Itty Bitty Kitty Coaches challenged the parents to a sign contest. The prize? A $5.00 gift certificate to McDonalds... so 2 trips to Hobby Lobby and about $45 later...

Here is my sign:

Isn't it pretty! Needless to say there is a massive amount of glitter on my kitchen floor! Oh and yes those are lights you see... plus they blink too!

You can see the blinky goodness here:

Oh I am so proud of myself... I got video to work on my blog... Woot! Go me!

But I love it! Can't wait to hear what you think...

It's Stinkin' Cute Craft Thursday #80

My life has been one big ball of busy this past couple of months. I will never ever volunteer to be the gift person ever again... EVER. I may offer to help, but will NOT be in charge. Heck last night my sister goes "you know Holden isn't going to be able to wear those onsies forever" To which I should have replied... do you know the last time I made something for Laci to wear? It has been since like the spring. I hate it! I want to do stuff for her and simply DON'T have time... So I guess I get to neglect making things for my kid because yours is more important... Don't mine me, I am in a crummy mood and haven't had enough coffee...

Anyways, in an attempt to finish what I have started here are two awesome features.

The first one comes from An Irish Italian Blessing who shows us how to make an adorable centerpiece, front door decoration, half wall decoration, you name it... it could probably go there with ease... It is a GLITTER PUMPKIN!!! Any of you that personally know me know how much I love glitter and just how much is currently on my kitchen floor. So if you want something else to do before people come to your house for thanksgiving go make this adorable thing! But as a warning... do it outside or in the garage... it could be messy!

The next thing comes to us from Lady with the Red Rocker... They are Sugar Cookie Bars with Cream-Cheese Butter Frosting! Can we all say delish?!?! So if you are in need of a pitty party (raising my hand) or just want a delish treat to share, go cook up a tasty storm!

To my two features grab a button... they may be my last ones to hand out for a while. I am still not sure if I am going to continue through yet...

IBK Gift #3

So the girls had their first competition this past weekend... They came in second and really did a great job!

First up here is my munchkin at competition...

Here is the pyramid (Laci is in the middle on top)...

Yes she is 4! Isn't that uh-mazing and cute!

Anyways, the first competition gift we gave were personalized clipboard cases:

I really meant to take a picture of all 16 of them together, but time got the better of me, and I forgot... but I don't ever wish to do them again, so I am ok. :o)

We do have one boy on the team and I couldn't do the cheerleader on the thing... I thought it would be too girly, so I did this:

What do you think? Each clipboard case had an 8 pack of crayons inside and 10 coloring pages. I think they turned out awesome! Don't you? I have lots of work to do on the next couple gifts, but they are getting there!

Can't wait to hear what you think!

Bobcats Gift #1

So my craftiness has spread and other teams have asked for my help... I am not good at saying no. I suck at it dude! Why?!? Because I love crafts, know I can help, and make a lot of kids gifts rock...

So when my friend asked me to help with her daughter's team gifts I couldn't say no. The first gift I helped her with is their water bottles... We used my cricut and other software to cut out the vinyl. Didn't they turn out cute!?!

On the back middle bottom we put their name:

I think they turned out great! What do you think?

It's Stinkin Cute Craft Thursday #79

I am posting (3) quick features because I am hungry and want one of them so stinkin bad, and the other two are just adorable!

I am incredibly hungry and would love the Cinnamon Roll Cake by Sew Fantastic! I could literally jump through my screen and invite myself into your kitchen that is how yummy it looks!!!

Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom made an adorable rainbow princess dress. You are inspiring and I would love nothing more than to make Laci a dress from scratch. This is just beautiful! What a wonderful job!

Diary of a Crafty Lady has made me feel like a slacker since I bought a Jessie Costume for Laci... luckily she decided at the last minute to go as Bat Girl, because didn't look near as cute as her little munchkin! I love it! Such a great job!

Ladies you have done an amazing job! Grab a featured button. Thank you to everyone who is and has participated. It keeps me going!

IBK Gift #1 & 2

The IBK gift comittee decided to give the girls garment bags and make up cases for their first two gifts to have to take to competitions, keep the uniform in when not in use, etc. We found them at Sam Moon Online... uhm... yes please! They are zebra print goodness. Here is where you can find the garment bag and the make up case. We then added a little tag (from All Stitch for $0.85 a piece) to both the garment bag and the make up bag so that they each knew who's was who's... they turned out adorable, the parents loved them, and my hubby would tell you he is glad because they are out of the house. :o)

Here is the garment bag:
Garment Bag

Here is the make up case:

What do you think? Pretty stinkin Cute for $20 + tax and shipping each huh... Here are some pictures of the bags laying out with the tags on them...

Now we do have a boy on the team and we couldn't give him zebra print stuff, so he got a duffle bag. I promise with shipping his costs the same as both the girls bags... ridiculious I know!

Can't wait to hear what you think about them. I have another cheer gift coming up on Friday if I have time to blog about it, it is what they are getting on Saturday. Anyways, hope you have a great day!

Cheer Gift for a different team

You know how I said I have been busy... well I have. I am helping other people out too, which increases my work load, but I love crafts and have a problem saying no. Anyone else have this problem? It is an issue if you ask me. Anyways, one of the gift chairs for another team asked for my help, so I said sure. We spent a Saturday morning (I think... can't remember at this point) cutting out letters for them to sew on the booty of the shorts for the girls.

Before you ask, no they weren't hand cut. My cricut can cut fabric. In fact I am sure the silohuette can too, I just haven't figured it out yet. Anyways, so when we were done the shorts looked like this before being sewn on...

They were trying to zig zag the letters on, and were having some issues. I don't know what type of machine they were using but I haven't ever had issues. If something is too small sometimes I will do a straight stitch instead of the zig zag... seems to help with finer fabrics and such... but hopefully they got it figured out because they will be cute when they are done.

What do you think?

It's Sew Stinkin' Cute #78

Ok, so there will be two features today... both Halloween because they are adorable and I love them both...

First up from A Few of My Favorite Things are some adorable BOO blocks.

Then over at Craft Linky they made an adorable bat out of paper plates. What a great fun, cute activity for kids!

Go grab your featured buttons you two. For everyone who participated last week, thank you so much. I hope that you forgive me for losing my mind and not realizing that I forgot to post until last night. You all know the rules, so I am going to skip posting them. You have till next Wednesday at midnight to post your new links.
