Shark Week Fun

Creating fonts make me SMILE!  It's usually when I'm sitting down watching t.v. that I feel inspired to write. If you look at the name of the font you will quickly be able to tell what I was watching on t.v. or what was on my mind.

I think the SK Sharkweek Joy is definitely my favorite.  I see some fun creations being made with this.  If your looking for some new fonts you can stop by and pick them up.

Happy typing my friends!

Made It Monday

Well, I think I have completely settled into my summer.  I know this because once I get settled I start summer crafting, pinning, and looking forward to

Stop by 4th Grade Frolics to see all the Monday Made Its.  


My first Made It screams sUmMeR! My little sass has been selling lemonade for extra money for the past couple of months.  She LOVEs it and works very hard at it so my friend decided to make her a lemonade stand from an old fence wood.
Seriously, how could you not stop and buy lemonade.  

The sign at the top was made with chalkboard spray paint. Super cool and it was only 3 dollars at Wal-mart.  I'm currently making a list of all the things I want to spray around my house. ;-)
The chalkboard makes it easy for her to change it from Lemonade in the Summer to Hot Cocoa in the winter.  This past weekend she was selling old clothes, shoes, and bags so her sign said "Jen's Lemonade and Boutique".

 No, technically I didn't make this BUT I did help measure, draw lines for screw placement, and hold while sanding.  I did however make the cute little fabric scrap banner for the front. 
 
Which leads me to my next made it...
Learning to sew was on my summer bucket list.  So put a CHECK by that because I have officially learned to use our sewing machine. 


I had a sweet friend make me a bookmark so this bookmark was my inspiration.  My goal was to make bookmarks and mail "oldies but goodies" books and new bookmarks to friends. 
I think the hardest part was wrapping my head around turning the fabric inside out and controlling my foot on the sewing pedal.  I love how they have turned out!  

Look out world because I'm planning to sew all kinds of things.
