Spoons Spoons spoons

I sooo have a love hate relationship with my new obsession spoon jewelry! I have been working for days trying to perfect the talent of metal stamping on spoons SO here we go!!!
       I got these stamp set from Joann's for like 15 dollars. I just took the spoon bent the top over added some wire to make the top look fancy and then the stamping took me tons of tries to get it right its very hard!!!! but I finally got it you have to hammer the stamp pretty hard to get it to show up.
 at the end you can add some cute charms. this says Live Free
 I also did this one where i cut the entire handle off and then hammered the whole spoon to make it flat so i could mod podge this awesome circus elephant
Hope you guys like! it was a lot of work!

T- shirt Scarf

SO I saw this the other day on YouTube (my addiction) I swear you can learn anything if you just YouTube it!  Anyways it looked really super easy!! You just need a shirt and scissors.
 I got my shirt from the dollar tree but you can use an old one that you don't care for anymore.
okay so first just cut the top off right under the armpit. you could use the left over sleeves for fabric flowers to add on the scarf.
 okay then you just start cutting stripes don't cut all the way through on one side because you are going to use it to put all strands together.
 after you have cut all the stripes you just start stretching the strands
 then when u are done stretching you take the side that you didn't cut and start folding together.
 like this they all should just fit right together
 you also can braid a few or tie a few to give it your own design
 I also added some cut leather to bind it together and hide the folded piece
 then you are free to add your own fun taste! Like I added this sweet bow tie which I will teach you next time!!!
Be free and be who you are!!!!

Ello!!!! my fellow DYi'ers

Sooo I'm super excited! I saw this adorable Dyi wood bolt necklace from Mr Kate's web blog YouTube thing and I just had to try it soo here it goes
                                First you need to go out in the deep dark woods okay just kidding go out in the yard and pic up a couple tiny tree branch's. You will also need wire paint and chain
      you then cut the tree pieces and start painting any colors you want
                                                 then just let them dry usually dries really fast
  then when they are dry you just wrap jewelry wire around the branches you can either leave them plain or add some bolts and screws. after you have them all separately twisted you wrap them all together doing figure 8's then at the top you loop the chain through the wire
                                                          I made wire rings to match
                                                                     So Happy!!!
                                                       Hope you have as much fun as I did

                                    So all u need is crayons, a shirt, sandpaper and your iron

                          THen next have fun with ur kid let them color whatever they want onto the sandpaper the harder u draw the better it shows up  but do remeber that when u put it on the shirt it will be backwards so be careful of that.
Easy part takes like 2 seconds just turn it over and iron it on!!

He only takes the best

ummm I felt like I needed to say something from my last post I believe my last post was about my dad and I thought I would finally write and let you know that after my last post my dad lost his life to cancer. It has been very hard for me to express how I felt I really wanted to write something anything. I thought to help me through this and maybe connect with others who has lost a loved one. He was my free bird my inspiration and I loved him more then anyone knew. I write this with a very heavy heart.I never knew that you could actually physical hurt from a broken heart.  The only peace that I have about this is I know he is in heaven and he is no longer in pain. \\

 He Only Takes the Best
God saw that he was getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him
and whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes "the best".

It has been 2 months since he passed and I remember every night as I try to fall asleep. I just want everyone to know he went fast and suffer very little he also went with his two favorite girls by his side my mom and I.

Goodbye To My Dad
Goodbye Dad, I had to say
A few months ago on a cold winter day
I’ll remember the good times and try not to be sad
But saying goodbye still hurts so bad
I miss you more then I can express
My love for you will never grow less
I keep trying to imagine how I will go on
I realize tomorrow is another dawn
I know you’re in heaven above
Looking down on us with all your love
Only to whisper in our ear
Remember that I’ll never stopped loving you dear
I’ll always remember the good times we had
Remember the man, my wonderful Dad
I’ll remember you each and every day
And if I need to talk to you, I’ll just sit down and pray
One day we’ll be together again
To talk about all the places we been
Until the time I’ll always treasure
Having you for a Dad was such a great pleasure
By Debra Marie Stratton-VanBuskirk

     I want him to be remembered as a strong man that loved everyone he met his never judged and I love that about him doesn't matter where u came from or what u looked like he accepted and I can only hope that I am the same as my dad in those precious parts of him. I am so thankful for my dad teaching me not to judge its has gave  me a heart for people who struggle with addiction and also our Veterans.
I also don't wanna let my dad down and I wanna live for God like he always wrote in my letters and I wanna live my life to the fullest like he said...... he also said to give my mom a hard time lol in which i am very good at ha...
I will now continue my blog with my crafts and life experiences but we will never forget my Dad!

The Final Flight
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one' touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
