Picture frame

I love the green color. Great wedding gift!

Family name sign

Isn't this gorgeous?! Love the crown moulding.


To make these, just unwrap crayons, break into pieces and place into shaped baking tins. (spray with cooking spray first) You can mix colors, but try to keep warm colors together and cool colors together. (to avoid a bunch of brown crayons) Bake until completely liquified. Remove from oven, let cool, then dump out the crayons. Cool! (can't remember where I got this, either! sorry!)

Christmas card wreath

From Martha Stewart:
Decorate a wall or an interior door by hanging a holiday-card wreath. Using wood glue, affix miniature wooden clothespins to a large (about 14-inch-diameter) embroidery hoop. Alternate clothespins to point outward and inward, spaced 1 1/2 inches apart. Suspend from a ribbon, and clip your cards in place as you receive them.
