This week and next week I’ve got extra hours at work, so things have been slacking a little bit on the home front. SO last Saturday was this little blogs one year anniversary! I can’t believe its been a year since I wrote this tiny little post! Thanks to everyone along the way who has encouraged me to, well, to be me. I appreciate all of the kind words. I thought since this is my one year anniversary I would highlight my favorite craft projects throughout the year. I adore creating things, I think its the only time I can free my mind. In April I showed off my creative gift wrap and cork napkin holder project (which by the way I still use to this day!) In May the girls and I made some fun little Paper Plate Masks and I showed how I spruced up some old jars to make tea light candle holders. In June I bragged up my adorable painted flower pots the girls made for me. In August, I got really fancy and made this princess polka dot birthday banner for Anika’s big party, and SHE painted this bean bag board as well. In September we had our Backyard Blue Moon party and I created some simple tablecloths to match the casual feel to the party. And in October I showed off my little trick or treat bags for all the little goblins around town. 🙂 And there is 9 creative things I made over the course of my first 6 months. Watch out…I may just be highlighting all of my delicious desserts in a future post…. 😉 ~Melissa 9 Creative Crafts was last modified: April 6th, 2016 by Melissa KayleneShare this:TwitterFacebookPinterestEmail Related craftscreating 17 comments 0 Facebook Twitter Google + Pinterest Melissa Kaylene Hi, my name is Melissa and this is my blog.

Reply Rachel@MyWholesomeHome April 17, 2013 at 6:02 pm I definitely wish I was a bit more crafty. Or managed my time better. That's more of the reason I don't craft-I end up with a pile of half done projects. I loved the candle holders! Reply Cherished Handmade Treasures April 17, 2013 at 7:33 pm Lots of fun ideas! Thanks for linking up on the Whatever Wednesday Linky Party. SandyCherished Handmade Treasures Reply Pamela April 17, 2013 at 10:46 pm What a group of fun, yet different, ideas. Love the creative wrapping–a fun package to get. I have a candle "thing" so really need to make the tea light holders.
