TGF's Farm Fresh Friday -- ABC

Hello!  Ready for another Farm Fresh Friday?  This week Jess M. is challenging us to make Anything But a Card (ABC).  It sounds daunting but a simple tag or bookmark will do.

I made a door hanger for my daughter.  I found a pack of those inexpensive wood hangers at Walmart.  I'm not sure what to call it but it's thin and easy to decorate.  And I know I buy a lot of stuff at Walmart but it's way closer than Target and I don't think I've ever seen like a dollar bin at Target.  Maybe ours doesn't have one.

I used this cute little Big Anya called Anya Styles.  I made her phone pink like my daughter's one.  I should try to style my daughter's hair like this instead of trying to fight her waves and smashing her hair down every morning with water and styling products.  We should try to just poof her hair up.  I remember we all wanted big hair back in the day.  Why do girls all want stick straight hair these days?  Some stylist quoted me $300 to straighten my daughter's hair but it would last a year! 

This is the back side and it's a message intended for her little brothers.  Mostly cause I was too lazy to cut out all the letters of brothers.  Plus in a few, hopefully many years from now it will come in handy.  Some subconscious mind trick.  Haha!

Please go check out the rest of the ABC creations by the DT and join in on the challenge!

I am gonna get ready to do some major shopping tomorrow at Macy's!

Thanks for reading!


Cute cute cute. I bet your daughter loves it.
Oh, I love this door hanger!!! So cheery, and a cute and clever way to keep Haley's little brothers out. Hope you have a successful shopping day at Macy's.

So cute!! May have to make one for Maddie, right now she has an annoying Monster High doorknob hanger that makes a shrieking noise whenever you go in her room! (so irritating) Awesome job!

Cute! Love the purples too! Our Target has seasonal $1 things at the front of the store, but sometimes things seem expensive for $1. Urgh, don't remind me about big hair, but yeah, that's so nice if she has the natural volume in her hair!

Awwww....this doorhanger is perfect for the Big Anyas, and isn't she the sweetest in purple! A cute idea, but as a FYI...I never get tired of looking at your mini notebooks!

Ka-ute!! This is amazing Eva!! The idea, the colors, the papers, totally awesome!!
Your daughter and I have a lot in common. Girls that have hair like us want it straight, but girls that have it straight want our hair. Let it go big one day and see how she likes it. will save on hair products. ;)

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them.

I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand?

This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful.

I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet.  And th…
