A while back I found these really nice laser cut letters at the craft store. I took them home and thought about all the amazing things I could do with them. But honestly, they where just lying there waiting for me to decide what to make. And then I had some left over paint from another project. That’s when I knew what I wanted to do with those wooden letters: I wanted to make a cute 3D quote artwork. I absolutely love how it turned out. It’s a simple project, but it really looks amazing!

Sometimes it’s so hard to think of a good gift for someone you love. You want to give them something they will use and remember but they already have so much stuff. And to make it even worse: there is close to nothing on their wishlist. So what to do? Well, pick something they love to do and create something that helps them with it!

My dad loves his vegetable garden (I promise I will make pictures this summer, it’s really pretty) but I noticed he didn’t had any garden markers. So I decided to make him some for his birthday. I called my mom for a list of all the vegetables and bought a lot of paint stirrers. I love the end result and so did my dad. I think they will look great in his garden! Read More »
