Magnetic USA Map Puzzle

usa-map-magnetic-puzzle

This month’s Silhouette promo (begins tomorrow) is on all their specialty media like printable canvas, magnet paper, tattoo paper, foil, adhesive cardstock and more.  My 2nd grade son is currently learning the 50 states in school.  I thought cutting out a blank USA map on some magnet paper would help him learn his states quicker.  Let me tell you…it is helping me learn too.  Apparently my US geography sucks since my husband had to put the puzzle together initially. #geographyfail

Handmade Halloween Cards {with free Silhouette cut file}

Kayla absolutely loves art and I am always looking for useful projects she can do.  Yesterday she got a card in the mail from her other grandma and is itching to write her back.  So today I came up with come cut out Halloween cards that she could color or use washi tape behind it to dress it up.  She loves getting to use mommy’s special tape so she was all over it.  I made the Silhouette files available for those that have the machine.  This would be a great Halloween classroom craft for teacher’s too.

State Pride Tour: Indiana

state pride tour: indiana

Welcome to State Pride Week. This week I have partnered with 30 bloggers to showcase a project, craft or recipe to showcase our home state.  I currently live smack dab in the middle of the USA in Indiana.  I took advantage of my states initials and created an “IN love” silk screen that I can use over and over again.  I chose to make some pillows and a canvas out of my “IN love” silk screen.

Thanksgiving “Be Grateful” Pallet Art

DIY-pallet-art

Back in February I made a super inexpensive and large piece of pallet art for Valentine’s Day.  Since the colors were in the scheme of my current living room pallet I have left it up all year round.  I decided to tackle the project again and give it a little Thanksgiving spin with the words “Be Grateful.” {I know I skipped right over Halloween and onto Thanksgiving.  HA!}  I never want to be limited by the holiday decor so I made it without any leaves or autumn colors. This project is really easy and cost less than $10!
