Learn How To Make Paper Flowers #TBCCrafters 26

Learn How To Make Paper Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I recently got a new cartridge for my Cricut that makes flowers, and thought it would be fun to try and show you how it’s done.  If you don’t have a Cricut and are good with scissors, I’m sure you could just make these that way, and they would turn out pretty close to the same.  I just […]

Things That Bring Back Memories – “BJ & the Bear” #MondayMemories 46

For this week’s “Things That Bring Back Memories” post, I am going to pick something in the topic of “TELEVISION” and go with “B.J. and the Bear“.  This television show started in 1979, and was over in 1981.  I always remember watching this show with my Dad.  Seeing that big semi and the chimp pull the cable for the horn…priceless!! “B.J. and the Bear” wasn’t […]

How To Create a Wooden Photo (#TBCCrafters) I love finding new ways to decorate, and especially with ideas that have  a more natural look.  I saw something like this on YouTube, and thought it would be fun to try.  I used my regular HP Printer (which is ink), and found out that it is actually better to use a laser printer for this project.  It […]
