1 camera cord + 1 moment to create something = 1 happy girl!!

Yay, yay, yay!!

I found the camera cord....literally, I found it one minute ago!

Guess where it was???

Right where I left it the last time!! :o)

Who knew?! ha ha ha

I would have promised you that I looked in that spot at least twice...either I didn't, or I did and my brain is not working correctly.

I'd say either one is a solid possibility!

So let's get to it....

I want to show you something that I made today.

I had an old book sitting around and just had to try this. I've seen it done well so many times!

Now, I'm not a big fan of ripping books up (that's just me personally), but I'm a HUGE fan of re-purposing things. The book (which I got for free), was an old copy of "Jo's Boys" by Louisa May Alcott. Several other pages were missing so I knew this would be the perfect test-run item.

I got all my things together....I didn't use the stickers on this particular one, but I do think stickers would be a really cute addition to a banner!

I just used a plain, old Sharpie for the stencil. It worked like a charm!

Those particular stencils came from Hobby Lobby for about $6......I have used them lots of times! I love it when you get your moneys worth out of something!!

Sorry it's sideways.......I still have lots to learn about putting pics on Blogger!

Once I finished all the letters I found some ribbon sitting around and used my scissors to cut little slits in the top of the paper.

I fed the ribbon through and voila!!!

Hope you like it!!

I'm going to post again this weekend and show you some new fun things I've gotten from Goodwill!! I've been hitting the jackpot there lately :o)

Hope y'all have a happy, happy Friday!!


  1. That is very CUTE! I might have to try that one. I have some old hymnal pages that a friend gave to me. I'm glad you found your cord!

  2. Your banner is adorable. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment.


  3. You never cease to amaze me. Great! Awesome! Spectacular!

  4. Definitely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. I tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and explained out everything without complication. Maybe, people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks.

  5. Hey,
    Definitely I have to say that, the picture you bring it's so much artistic.I also like it.

  6. Hey,
    Really it's a good job,all of the picture is also so nice. Definitely I have to say that, It is creative. I like this kind of job so much.
