Mother's Day Keychain

I'm so ready to bask in the love and relaxation of Mother's Day.  But if you still have to cross off gifts for the most wonderful day ever, I've got 2 easy ideas using the same concept- wooden beads painted by a cute little grandchild! (I also learned the importance of lighting control when using an apparently temper-mental background color??)
I happened to have these items on hand, but they can all be bought at your local craft store.
 Start by knotting one end of your leather cord tightly, this will be the bottom of the keychain.
 Slide on those wood beads, that your cute kid(s) painted with specifically selected colors.
 Loosely knot the top, and before tying tightly, slide on your keyring & tassel.
 Now pull taught and trim the excess cord. BOOM. 

So simple, easy, not tacky and way cuter than those awful puzzle piece pins we always came home from school with for my mom.  
....thanks for taking one for our self-esteem and wearing those to church, Mom.

Mother's Day Wishlist

So Mother's Day is coming soon and like any good mother, I made a realistic wish list for one of the most important holidays of the year.  From comfy, to sparkly, to dressy, to everyday care, I've covered it all so I'm sure to get something I love! Too much? Here are the links to these gorgeous items, in case you need one of each of these for yourself!

Happy Belated Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day, whether you are a Mother or not I hope you had a relaxing weekend!
I had a great morning & then the car battery was dead right as I was loading stuff up to head to church. And then later that night as I put my son to bed, he woke up with vomit all over his bed & I got to spend the majority of my night doing that over & over again. It was a Mother's Day I'll never forget! And not in a good way! ha!
BUT I was in charge of doing some decorations for our church's luncheon for women on Sunday. So I real quick wanted to share a few shots of the decor I did.

I made that giant flowing book-page sign and I was in LOVE. And one day I'll take some good pictures for a tutorial, rather than shots I took on my phone on a raining day.  Petite Party Studio is my newest addiction in party supply, and I'm lucky enough to have them a few minutes away. The fringe & small honeycomb balls are from them. 

I also whipped out this "tablecloth", which I am excited to use over and over again.  I put it in quotes, because it's just a simple piece of muslin that I painted words onto with watered down black paint.
Also, follow me on snapchat (which for some reason is suddenly becoming popular with bloggers?), but I often share some fun stuff (creative and personal). My name is katiecarranza.
Happy Monday!

Glass Etched Quote Picture Frame

Today's post is all about Mother's Day and Martha Stewart crafts. This etched glass frame would make a perfect gift for a mother of grandparent.

  • frame
  • picture
  • vinyl quote stencil 
  • Martha Stewart glass etching cream & brush

Step 1: Take glass out of frame & apply stencil.

Step 2: Follow directions on glass etching bottle & use brush to apply cream.

Step 3: Wait 15 minutes before rinsing off & removing stencil.

 It's as simple as that!  My quote reads: "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be."
You can do this for grandparents, or personalize it with names...the possibilities are endless!

Guess what?! Michaels is celebrating Moms with a special coupon!
