Happy Saturday.  Colin woke up today and asked, "Is today a school and work day?"  When I said "no," he ran off saying happily, "it's a party day!"  Ha.  When the three kids are together, that is the case. :)

First, I have a winner of the CTMH goodies!  The lucky one is Sammie.  I emailed you.  You all shared a lot of great money-saving tips.  I am collecting my favorites and will share them here next week.

I wanted to share a glimpse at a project I did for Faith Sisters.  What a great site!  So many ideas.  I am so thankful I got to be a part of it.  You can see my full project and my dorky answers to some questions HERE

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps (including alphabet) and embossing powder; Doodlebug buttons; Lots of scraps from my scrap drawer – woohoo!

ETA: I had a few questions about this project.  It actually isn't a cork board. :)   I cheated – hee.  It is just a 12×12 cardstock page with everything added.  The circles are all 1" and adhered and then stitched.  I stitched buttons in random places on the circles.  Photos can be tucked behind these buttons – it works really well!  No thumbtacks needed. :)  

Also, I have a few Prayer Spot requests (see bottom of right sidebar) and I will try to add those tonight.  :)

Hugs all around…

    The project is great–I remember thinking my mom was crazy for saying beauty began on the inside. When I got a little older, I understood and found it to be true.

    It’s a good reminder at any age!

    Just love this project Jennifer. Simple in idea but dramatic with all the wonderful colors. Makes me smile everytime I look at it. Also like that you got to use up some scraps. They just seem to pile up and take over.

  14. LOVE this project!! I’m stumped tho’ on how you sewed the circles to the corkboard?? Or did you just sew them together and then affix to the cork? What did you use to attach to the cork?

    I absolutely love this project – would love to do something similar for my daughter, butI am having a hard time trying to figure out how you did it! I can see that the circles are sewn, but I can’t figure out how you attached them to the corkboard! Did you start out with a framed corkboard, or did you somehow take it apart?? I am really stumped! Thanks for sharing this beautiful project!!

  16. Thanks Jennifer for sharing your talent with us at Faith Sisters!

  17. Just got back from visiting your project in it’s entirety…beautiful. As are you. thank you for sharing a little bit of you with the rest of us!!
