I saw this adorable card by Natasha Schwecke and knew I had to copy it! I love the look of the wood grain mixed with the glitter paper. I feel like that's what Thanksgiving is- a time to party and glitz up the simple celebration of food and bounty. May you and your families all have a happy Thanksgiving!

Did you know that My Digital Studio is great for designing blog banners? I created this one for my other blog. I used one I saw online as inspiration and it came together very quickly. I'm sad to say this is my last blog hop post. :( I'm overwhelmed with school and being a mommy to the point where I haven't done a lot of designing lately. But I'll still be posting projects here when I do get a spare moment. Thanks for joining me for the past 2+ years on this fun adventure and make sure you continue to follow the bi-monthly blog hop. I love these super talented women!

Today we are sharing home decor projects with you. I've designed this cute frameable artwork that would be a great gift for a mother-to-be. This project came together SO quickly. The most time I spent was picking the font (I'm really picky with my fonts). I've been super busy since school started back up so I'll be brief. Make sure you check out the other great projects today!

Remember back in the day when I was doing my version of Project Life? Well it got away from me but now I'm back at it. My system has changed a bit. Trying to make sure I got every day recorded was a bit too much pressure for me. So now I just take the 7 most recent photos from my phone and put them on one page. I focus on the memory and journal about the photo, rather than other things we did that day. What I love about this is that the pressure is off. And now that I'm back in Project Life mode I find myself wanting to take more "everyday" photos of little moments in our lives. I realized that future generations are going to be more interested in these little snippets of our life. Actually I just enjoy looking back at these types of layouts I've made more than the others. I remember things I had forgotten like little traditions we used to have that we don't anymore, or how much our daily life has changed with Esper's growth. I encourage you to create a Project Life style layout, even if it's just every now and then, so you can preserve some of the things you maybe wouldn't have otherwise.

I need a good challenge these days to get me creating. Don't you? I love the cooking show on Food Network called 5 Ingredient Fix.
Going with that inspiration, I decided to start a fun regular on my blog called "5 Supply Fix" These projects will feature 5 or fewer supplies (in addition to ink and paper).
So on this card the 5 supplies I challenged myself with were:
1. Daydream Medallions stamp set
2. Itty Bitty Banners stamp set
3. Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons
4. Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die (Does anyone else find this thing a beast to figure out how to fold??)
5. Pistachio Pudding 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim (My favorite ribbon EVER!)
Ink: Versamark, Crumb Cake
Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White
Apparently there is a Bitty Banners Frame-Lit that goes with the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set, but I don't own it, so I just cut mine out by hand.
Demos: This would make a great make-n-take at a workshop or stamp club!
Everyone else: This would make a great little gift. Fill the milk carton with a favorite candy!
I hope you enjoy the projects I come up with for 5 Supply Fix. Maybe you'll be inspired to play along too!
