Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Welcome Baby Banner!

Ohhh I have baby on the brain!  Don't get too excited now.. this is NOT a pregnancy announcement (although I would not be opposed to a fourth if it happened)! 
Nope.. my next door neighbor who is also one of my besties just had a baby girl!  Whoo hoo! 
She is coming home today so I thought it would be fun to put a cute little welcome banner in her house as a surprise!
So here it is!

And here is how I made it from materials in my stash!

Heavy scrapbook paper
Glue stick
ignore the purpe ribbon.. it was my original plan but it was too short!
First I made a template of a onesie, dress and bootie on a paper bag. 
Next I cut out all of my shapes onto scrapbook paper.
Then I cut out the words Welcome Grace with my Cricut
Finally I glued all of the letters onto the outfits and embellished with buttons and ribbon.
Last I strung it across my twine with clothespins and Viola!  A cute welcome sign for my newest neighbor!
She loves it!

This is why I need a cricut or a silhoutte or some fancy paper cutter. I love everything everyone makes and I just have to make due with my exacto Knife. Great work!
