I made this super simple drawstring bag to hold all the pieces. I used that iron-on printable paper cotton stuff you can buy at the craft store . . . I know that isn't the technical term :)
I cut 20 approximately 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" pieces and painted them a light tan color. Then I cut up a 12 x 12 piece of cowboy themed scrapbook paper and mod-podged them to each square. Once they first coat was dry I inked all the edges with brown ink and let the ink dry. Then I applied another coat or 2 of mod podge over the top to give me a nice shiny finish.
I chose 10 wild west inspired images and converted them to SVG files and cut them out with my Cricut and SCAL software. I mod podged the images to cream colored paper and then mod-podged them to the wood. Inked the edges, then mod-podged again. SUPER EASY!!!
And, one last picture of the bag and the pieces. I LOVE how it turned out and it was super duper easy and it's going on the ETSY store!!!!
I'm diggin' this mason jar chandy that Kat over at "Measuring My Life in Love" made!! I know that these are quite popular right now and I've seen some of the price tags . . . YIKES!!! She didn't give the total price, but I have a feeling that it wasn't very much. Hop on over there and check it out!!
Ummm . . . I have no idea why this picture is sideways!! Oh well :) Mandy, from Mandy's Creative Corner, made these stuffed mushrooms that look TO-DIE-FOR!!! The hubs HATES mushrooms, but I love 'em, so I'm definitely going to be making some of these little beauties for myself!!
Check these out!! These little beauties are made out of masking tape!!!! Jessica, over at "Frenzied Mutterings of an Odd Duck" made these and stuck 'em to a canvas!!! Seriously, fabulous!!
As always, thank you so much for joining me every week!! You all inspire me and I LOVE IT!!!!

I made 26, one for each letter of the alphabet!! This is the crate I made for them, don't judge the nail holes, I haven't quite finished :)
Of course I put these on ETSY, I love 'em too much not to!! Also, I think it's too fabulous of a thing to not share with the world!! So, if you would like some, check out my store or shoot me an email: meandmybucket @ gmail . com

These NOEL blocks are very traditional looking with the colors and embellishments. I love me a traditional country-ish Christmas!!

We've all seen those DARLING little card table play houses, right??!! If you haven't, skee-daddle on over to ETSY and do a search and you will FALL-IN-LOVE!! I've always wanted to make Bucket one (buying them from someone else is rather pricey) but I knew it would be very time consuming, hence the high pricetag. Anyhoo, I shoved the idea to the back of the brain, that is until recently. I got to thinking about Christmas and how it's going to be here before I know it . . . BLAR!! And I don't want to be running around like an even CRAZIER THAN NORMAL lady the week before trying to get all of his gifts ready. So, the back of my brain told the front of my brain to make him a playhouse!! I wanted it to be bigger than a card table size because I want him to be able to use it for years to come, have sleepovers in it with his cousins and basically not outgrow it in 2 years :) So, we busted out some PVC pipe and set to work. I'm not going to bore you with the supplies, unless you are interested in making one, so I'll just show you the pictures. The frame is ready to go, now I just have to start with the sewing and all that jazz!!!
The roof is actually a separate piece that will be tied to the base. We had to do it this way because they don't make the necessary PVC joint pieces to give us the correct angles.
So far so good, right? I have a long ways to go and I'll be sure to show pictures of my progress!!
NOW LET'S PARTY!!!
One of you darlings DID make some and DID post them on your blog ... AWESOME!!! Jennie, from Livin' on the Edge, made these . . .
YOU ROCK JENNIE!! Go check her out and show her some love!!
On a side note, Jennie saw this project from Tip Junkie. I had no idea it was featured over there!!! WOOT-WOOT!!! I'm famous :)

The button is TONS better than just the plain reader because it actually takes you to the post so you can comment or whatever. So, it eliminates the whole middle man in a way. With reader you have to click on the post and then it takes you to the blog. Anyway, in case you want to use it, and you most definitely should!! Here are the instructions . . .

Just like the Halloween version, the first 24 cards are white ...
And the 25th card is green!!
and of course, I just HAD to add some rhinestones for some bling. This one is in my ETSY store too :) You may wonder why I'm selling them and not keeping them for myself ... well, I'm wondering the same thing!! HAHA I have a few 11 x 14 frames and I think I may mike mine using those, think it would be too big?
Well, I HOPE you love this one too!! And just in case you missed my Halloween version, scroll down, I promise you'll want to check it out!!
I'm linking up to these ladies ...
