Story Board Book From Photos

Story Board Book From Photos

I’ve made a couple of books through Pint Size Productions and really liked them. When my two-year-old nephew came to visit, I wanted to take the photos from the visit and make them into a board book so he and my two-year-old son could remember them better. And then I […]

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs

We did Easter eggs for the first time this year. Logan requested that they be “scary”. So Doug and I shredded some crayons and we sprinkled them on the eggs while they were still hot after boiling. We all had a great time, and they look pretty different! Definitely cover […]

Cake Pops!

Cake Pops!

I got the book Cake Pops a while ago and I’ve been dying to try it out! There are a lot of recipes for spring, so I made some to take to the neighborhood Easter egg hunt. They were really easy to make and they taste great! I’m definitely going […]

Laser Etched Corian Coasters

Laser Etched Corian Coasters

At one point, we were considering remodeling our kitchen, and we got some Corian samples. We didn’t end up doing the remodel, but we left them sitting around the house to see how durable they are. My brother-in-law had always thought they made cool coasters. When I took the laser […]

Harry Potter Shirt

Harry Potter Shirt

I happened upon the Harry P font and decided it would be fun to make a quick shirt for Logan. I typed in some text and drew some footprints in Silhouette Studio, and then printed onto stencil vinyl on my cameo. I used a sponge to paint through the stencil, fading away […]

First Time Using the Laser

First Time Using the Laser

I got really excited after taking the laser class at Maker Works and decided to try a simple project to start. I didn’t want to worry about dithering photos, so I ran a batch job on all our family photos, putting them through Vector Magic to see which ones converted to single-color […]
