Crafty McCrafterson here...

So, I've kind of been bitten by the craft bug here lately.  I got really inspired by Andrea over at *Keepin it Thrifty*  yesterday while perusing thru some of her posts.  I decided to make some little Mother's Day gifts for my Mom and sisters...and a little something for myself too.  :o)

For myself, I made a cupcake stand with things all found at Dollar Tree. 
I followed Andrea's tutorial and it came out perfect!!

Items used: 2 plates and 1 bowl ($1 ea), 2 candlestick holders ($1 ea) and 9001 glue ($4)-Total of $10 
I just love it!!  I can't wait to use it! 

I decided on chalkboard coffee mugs and glass vases for Mother's day gifts.

For my first time attempting anything like this, I'm pretty satisfied with the way they turned out.  :o)

I am enjoying my weekend in NOLA (again) with my family and did a little crafting, making flower hair clips with my sisters.   Good times with hot glue!  ;o)

Happy Saturday!
