Crafty for Roller Derby

I've made these pretty bearing necklaces for this weekend's Bayou City Bosses fundraiser, here in Houston. 
The colors represent each home team. 
Support your local roller derby, almost every city has a league. It's fun!

Crafty for Roller Derby

These MVP awards I made for the Conroe Cutthroats who beat me and my Machete Betties by 8 points. It was a hard fought game and tons of fun.

Crafty for Roller Derby

I've been crafty for roller derby the past couple of weeks.  It's been a lot of fun. 

These paintings were for the Houston Roller Derby's Valkyries team fundraiser. They were a mix of spray paint, water colors and glitter. They both sold in the auction as well!

Door Sign

Howdy Y'all.
I made a sign for my front door with supplies I had in the garage.  Spray paint, wood paint, a Texas and a star stencil.  It was really simple and super fun. I'll make it fancy for each holiday season.

I practiced spraying out HOWDY on the back side first. Then I went for  it. 

I hand painted the stencils and let the board dry.

I then added some Texas touches to the stencils and let them dry.

The final product with fall decorations!

Christmas Trees with wings

This holiday season I met up with some friends for the National Rodeo Finals in Las Vegas, Neveda. I flew from Houston to Salt Lake to Vegas and back again. Each airport had very unique and festive ways of spreading the holiday cheer. I had to share. 

How amazing are theses trees?!?! Great Job Las Vegas.

Creative and traditional Salt Lake City. 

WTF, Houston????

November Baby!

November is my birthday month and this is my new birthday bike.  Riding a bike is a lot like life, you never really forget how to ride, you fall and you have to get back up and get back on, the more you pedal the farther you'll go.  I'm not sure how many bikes I've had in my lifetime but I LOVE bikes and riding them. I hope you have a bike and that you have a nice place to ride it.

Enjoy Life.  Keep it simple.

She's Crafty!

How I turned this into this, this FALL Season!

Glitter Acorns

1. Go outside, take a brisk fall walk, pick up acorns and put them in your pockets.
2. Rinse the acorns in your pockets off in the sink and let them dry for an hour or so.

3. Grab your glue, glitter and a paintbrush. There's about to be a party up in here.

4. Grab a glass of a wine and your cat for spot on creative judgement, I mean good company. ;-)

5. Paint the acorns with glue and gently drop into glitter, coat with glitter using a spoon. Let dry 10 to 15 minutes.

6.  Spray clear sealer over glittered acorns.  DO IT.  This will keep glitter off of you, your cats, your furniture, family, friends, floors, etc. Trust me, do this or your boyfriend/husband/girlfriend/wife/significant other will bitch, a lot. Let dry for 30 minutes.

7. Glue the acorns back into a stem that fits nicely. Let dry 15 minutes.

8. Use all of your sparkly acorns around a fall scented candle or whatever you see fit. Be festive.
