more snow-more projects

2 02 2011

I’m feeling much better today and have crossed a few projects off my list. First project was a PB Valentine plate knock off. They are floating around blogland and PB has sold out (not that I would have purchased one from them anyway.) So I found this super cute red polka dot plate at Target and decided it would make a perfect backdrop for the Pride and Prejudice saying.


I have attached the cut file that I used.  The saying is from a book, so I think it’s ok to share it.  Let me know if this is breaking some kind of copyright law and I’ll take the link off.  The cut file is designed for a 9″ plate.

The next project is one I’ve had in my mind for awhile.  I ordered some chalkboard vinyl from Expressions Vinyl and have been saving it.  I used some of it to create a chalkboard sword for T4’s wall so we can write his memory verses on it.  I didn’t make it as big as I should have, but it works for now.  I might need to rework it later.

Project 3 was a cooking project with all my kids.  I saw these cute heart pies the other day and wanted to make some for us. Everyone had a part, and they turned out cute and YUMMY! I used the French pastry crust recipe from

T1 spent some time outside taking pictures in the snow.  She realized blizzard conditions are not conducive for picture taking, but this one did turn out good.

Last project is the start of another baby gift.  I got the basket finished and need to work on the burp cloths and a little something else tomorrow.  Yes, we have another snow day in the wake of the blizzard.

Hey girl, your email is set to non-reply so I am going to leave this message here… 🙂
Oh! I LOVE it! And I am INSANELY jealous of you and your silhouette! I am sitting here telling my mother how you were SO awesome to share the silhouette file so people didn’t have to mess with their Cricut like did… I love it on the Red plate! Fabulous job! I do hope you will stop by on Thursday and link this up to my weekly Making It With Allie Party!
I am going over to become a follower of your blog right now!

I love the P&P plate. And just for future reference, the copyright on that book has expired, so it’s fair game. I downloaded a free copy onto my kindle app!

Thanks. I was more worried about PB and the “artistic” whatever they can say they have. This plate does make me want to read it again (in paperback *sad face*) no Kindle for me.

I was wondering if you would share how to make the basket. Thank you. Everything looks awesome on your site.
