Who doesn't dream of a farmhouse table? You can't even open up a magazine or go into a store now without seeing them. And let's face it just about every other DIY blogger has probably posted about one.  Well let me be the next, because this was too good of a deal to pass up!

Tour Through Blogland

Tour Through Blogland

So last week Kelly for Simply Kelly Designs gave us a tour through her blog and invited me to do the same. Kelly and I met while both participating in the Silhouette Challenge. Soon after we became, what I like to call, inbox besties. We are kindred spirits both on a blog level and a personal level. If we go a day without messaging it is rare. We had the amazing opportunity to meet in person at the Haven Conference in Atlanta.

Pallet Signs and the Silhouette Challenge

Pallet Signs and the Silhouette Challenge

It's that time again! Silhouette Challenge time! This months theme was all about home decor. Which is very appropriate since I just moved into my new home. Do you know I don't even have one thing hanging on my wall yet? I just can't decide what sort of style I am leaning towards. Anyway I had two big events coming up (Signature Finishes opening and Brimfield) where I needed to create some pallet signs to sell. So I thought I would share those with you this month.

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.

This summer has truly been the summer of weddings. I think I have come to that age (27) that all my friends are getting married. Don't get me wrong I love a good wedding or five. That's right I had five weddings on my calendar this summer. I have shared a few of the crafts and gifts I have made for these events this summer but I also wanted to share some of my favorites from some of my favorite bloggers.
