" "Behold, You have driven me this day from the face of the ground, and from Your face I will be hidden, and I will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me." So the Lord said to him, "Therefore, whoever kills Cain, vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold." And the Lord appointed a sign for Cain, so that no one finding him would slay him." ||| Supernatural 9x16 "Blade Runners"

Here's a little trick using charm squares. Some of you might have seen this before. We all need a refresher now and again...right...LOL. Take 9 charms squares (5") and layout same way you would for a 9-patch. Did you see that designer rotary cutter??? When I saw this on Nicole's blog I was just so taken by what a neat idea Olfa has finally come out with something pretty...I just had to have one.
Wooden Distressed Memorial Sign. Would be so special to have this sign on a table with pictures of all loved ones who will be watching over us on our day.
This is my art room sign above my door made from Fun Foam. So I like to get a few things done for "next year" (which is really less than 2 months away) at the end of "this year"! With our special area team all on board for doing a "global theme"...I decided blues & greens would be a great choice for my room! (I change my color theme every year...I have enough fabric so I can have 7 yrs in a row be different if I want to...warm colors..cool colors..primary..etc.
Restoring teak furniture What You Need: Rubber Gloves Two Brushes Medium Grit Sandpaper Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water Teak Oil Polyurethane Instructions: Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance. Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible. Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores. Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood. Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture. Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood. MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY: How To Care For Teak Furniture
This is what I think everyone truly wants to hear… To feel needed and loved. I know I do….. This has been quite the evening and night for so many reasons. It’s late and I have to get up in a few hours but first I think first a good cry is in order to cleanse my soul and grieve for what is over and what will never be. And in a few hours when the new day is here I will get up, put things behind me and move towards finding some magic…..
I have a few pairs of Avery's jeans to patch and this will be way cute!

Onsies for every month - super cute baby shower idea! Would be nice to include a matching collage frame so the mom-to-be will have a fantastic display to always remember (I'm not always the best on executing ideas like this, but if I had a frame waiting and only had to print off 12 pictures, well, then, maybe it would get done!)

Just did a bit of photoshop layering with a few images I gathered together from the net and came up with this sort of deer/mandala combination. Need to do some shading work around the edges and add some of the other things I want and I will have the finished design that I want tattooed on my arm when I have laser removal.
Write notes back forth with your child. Leave it on their bed, when they have a chance, they write back and leave it on your bed. How neat would it be to have those notes to look back on? With SONS...I can only imagine how special this will be! I must do this. cute-home-projects
Have you noticed all of the amazing projects that are using Split Letter Monograms? I have seen them on wedding invitations, as wall art, on mirrors and for decorating glass candle holders, to name just a few. Although they look complicated, they are not difficult to make. The Inspiration Studio Software makes it so easy that hardest part is choosing the font!
I wish I had pictures of Heather and I like this... When I have kids they will just have to suck it up because years from now they will be really glad they did.
I love anchor tattoos. I have wanted one for years, and I love the simplicity of this one. I probably would get it a tad bit smaller though. My grandfather always loved going on the boat, and he was one of the very few people that could hold me down when things got tough, so it holds great meaning.
