Making the most of it!

 I am so thankful to have an extra day off next week.  I am going to spent most of the day crafting...I am not sure what it will be yet but I am sure that I will be inspired.  Gotta make the most of my free time before my next graduate class creeps up on me!  I was thinking about that today as I was creating and realized that as soon as my class starts...my crafting will cease for a few months.  Good thing is does not start until October.  Just two more graduate classes left and then I will be a Master.  Master of what?..I don't know.  It has been a fun journey but I am ready to be finished with this chapter of my life. 

Today and part of yesterday, I created a treat for great friends who is expecting in a month or so.  Lauren and Adam have blessed my life so much.  I can't believe they are going to be parents soon.  Little Laikyn is going to so blessed to have such amazing, loving parents.  I wanted to create something special for the nursery and needed inspiration.  I turned to my favorite svgcuts.com.  Of course, they had tons of cute cut files and I had to make a decision on what it would be.  I decided that since Laikyn's name is spelled differently it would be fun for her to have it in her nursery.  So I chose to tackle the 3D Alphabet SVG Kit.

Before I started on Laikyn’s name, I decided I would try my own initial first to see if it was very difficult...(remember, I had not read the instructions or watched the video yet.).  Needless to say, the S was harder than I expected as you can see from the picture. 
My first attempt

After watching the video tutorial and reading the instructions, I realized that the S is the hardest letter to master and Mary recommends that you start with other letters first.  I am such a hard-head sometimes.  But the S didn’t turn out that bad…and it is just for me anyway!  It will be my little momento to "not" reading directions first!

This is the final project for Laikyn.  I hope that her mommy likes it.  I tried to match the colors of the nursery while trying to create a vintage, feminine feel.

I used LetteringDelights for the butterfly. I made the crochet flowers with a little instruction from my crafty mom.  Please feel free to comment.  I am always open for suggestions.  Don't forget to check out SVGcuts.com if you are interested in really cool cut files.


  1. love your letters... They really turned out amazing

  2. I LOVE the way you embellished each letter!!
