"Crafter" is an Acceptable Word - My encounter with Words with Friends

Today I was playing Words with Friends and had the opportunity to add an "er" to the word "craft" and I got so excited and then this happened.....



WHAT.....NOT an acceptable word, are you kidding me?  

Anxiety immediately filled my head because I call myself a "Crafter" all the time....I thought, "Am I misspelling it, why is it not an acceptable word?" I also started to think in the 2 minutes I had to think about, "What am I going to call myself now and what about all of those other "crafters" out there, they think it's a word too!!!

I came home, got on my computer and found this....IT IS A WORD....




2craft

So just in case you ever want to say the word "Crafter", it's okay....just don't spell it on Words with Friends or you'll get this....


Hope everyone sleeps well tonight!  I know I will......

p.s.  I just did spell check before hitting "Publish" and it picked up that it was spelled wrong....geesh

Glittered Heart Glass Block


A few Christmas' ago I made a glass block using the Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint.  You can see that post HERE.  I received so many comments about that project and I loved it so much that I decided to make the same thing but using a heart stencil I cut out with vinyl.  Simply follow the same directions as I did for the Christmas one to make a Valentine block.  Here are the pictures of the finished product.  

Enjoy!!


I have the block sitting in my living room next to a few other Valentine items.  I printed out the cute "true love story" print HERE from Eighteen 25.




I used pink lights that I purchased from Michaels.




Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!!!

"Be Mine" Valentine Hutch

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I thought it was time to put up some Valentine decorations and start crafting!  As you may know by now, you know that my kitchen hutch is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in my house and I love to decorate it according to the different holidays.  

This year I decided to leave the red holly berry garland hanging from Christmas because it was red and it went with the Valentine red theme.  I purchased a "Be Mine" garland super cheap at Home Sense (Home Goods in great USA)  and secured it to the top of my hutch with 3M strips.


I re-used my LOVE letters I made last year.  


The heart wreath hanging on the front is also secured by a 3M hook.



Here is the hutch with the doors open so you can see a better view of what is inside.....






Inside look at all of the Valentine items.....


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back soon for some more Valentine decorations and crafts!

Click on the holidays below to see other ways I have decorated the hutch.....
