We've Opened Up Shop at Signature Finishes

We've Opened Up Shop at Signature Finishes

So I've been keeping a secret from you! I'm usually not very good at keeping secrets but this time I was! As of about an hour ago I've opened up at booth at Signature Finishes in North Grafton, MA. I have loved setting up pop up shops at Brimfield and craft shows these past few years but when the opportunity of something a little more permanent came up I jumped on it.

Under Two Minutes Waffle Maker Cinnamon Buns

Under Two Minutes Waffle Maker Cinnamon Buns

So last weekend I went to use the oven for the first time in my new house. After preheating I went to put my cinnamon buns in the oven and it was stone cold to my surprise. I think I was more crushed over the fact that cinnamon buns weren't going to happen than that the stove wasn't working.

Blogiversary and a Silhouette Gift Basket Giveaway

Blogiversary and a Silhouette Gift Basket Giveaway

Weekend Craft has turned one and what a year it has been! I feel like this has been a year of transformation and change. I originally had started this blog when my gradschool internship had ended and my freelance work was at a low. Naturally I started to be more crafty in my spare time. After a few craft shows I had been asked how I made things or what was my next project. Now in no way have I ever been a fabulous writer (grammar is not my thing and I struggle with spelling) (I also really like to put my thoughts in parenthesis' if you haven't noticed yet). My blog has never been about the writing but more about developing my voice and sharing projects with my friends and family. Never in my wildest dreams did I think others would follow along!

Back to School: Printable School Subject Labels and Silhouette Challenge

Back to School: Printable School Subject Labels and Silhouette Challenge

While I am not in school nor do I have any children that are I was a little stumped as to what to create. I thought back to prepping for back to school and even the first week of school and I remembered always covering all my books with my Mom or Dad with brown paper bags. Then I would go to town decorating them (no surprise there). Now even to this day my handwriting is atrocious. I would ask any one else (besides my brother who has even worse handwriting than me, sorry Jeff) to write the subject on the book cover before I decorated it.

Recently I helped out with one of the most breath taking Bridal Showers I had ever been to. It was for one of my best friends from high school that is getting married over seas in the fall.

DIY Rocking Chair Makeover

DIY Rocking Chair Makeover

My sister recently bought a house and they are in the process of making it their own. Week after week Jenny has sent me links to rocking chairs that were just too pricey or falling apart on Craigslist. I immediately knew this would be a fun project to surprise her with. After a few weekends of yard sales and estates sales I finally found the rocker suitable for her outdoor porch.
