Crap to Craft~nick name T-shirt

I didn't have a ton of time to put together a birthday present for one of my sons best friends so it was a little last minute. But I actually think is is one of my favorite gifts that I have ever made.

We went to the store and got him a fun little Nerf gun and I bought a plain white T-shirt.

I love thinking up projects for my Silhouette and I was determined to think of a gift idea for this little boy.

His name is Ryan, but in his family he is called by a bunch of cute nick names. His mom even wrote up a post about them all on her family blog so that's were I headed to find them.

Once I had them all saved I entered them into my program for my Silhouette and organized them all cute with different fonts.

Then all I had to do after they were cut out was set them where I wanted them and ironed them on.

Easy peasy and the birthday boy ended up LOVING it!

Camp Flag

I am the Young Women's president in my ward at church and girls camp is something that I have always looked forward to. As a teenager it was one of my favorite parts about summer.

Some things have changed since I was a young woman at camp and now each ward is in charge of making their own banner or flag.

Fun! So I got all excited when I found out that this years theme is the 13th article of faith, specifically "We seek after these things" and it was a PIRATE THEME!!

I enlisted the help of my uber talented mother who was the artist behind it all and we worked out a design.

We went with 3 girls, all piratey and in the cabins color.

They are seeking their treasure which includes
scriptures and the temple

I made sure to sew on the name of our ward and at the top I used our color's bandanna to make tie tabs so it can be adjusted to whatever it is hung on.

I love it! And I think the girls will to.

I heart girls camp.
