it’s a cinch link party

Hey y’all!!

I’m back!  Vacation was fantastic!  Loved it so much!

Fun times with a great family, adorable nephew, funny brother, sister-in-law who thought the strike through was showing my blog mistakes.  (Sure do love you Bonnie!!)

And too many “just blog about it” jokes to go around.  My sweet, sweet mother didn’t even come to my defense…apparently I have a bit of a blog audition going on here, too.

Sure do love you family.  :)

And … after vacation … it’s always fun to be at the gate in the airport going to Curacao  … when I’m heading home.  Smile.

So, there’s really no complaining here.

But have you ever had those days when you thought you would be getting all crafty.

And your afternoon ends up looking a lot more like this …

Fun, right?!?!

Do the Curacao tax people not know I’d rather be crafting?  :)

But, if I don’t have time to craft at least there’s time for me to take a look at what you’re crafting so I’m co-hosting the It’s a Cinch link party TODAY with my girls!!!

Truth be told I did whip up this little spring wreath just for fun.

I used a wreath form I had bought on sale after Christmas, covered it with old fabric (mine happens to be dog bed material…don’t judge, it’s clean!) and wrapped with some jute.  And then I just did what I thought looked good.  I cut out a birdie and a few flower shapes from a cereal box, painted them different colors.  Hot glued a few pieces of driftwood (you could also use sticks), hot glued the flowers on the “branches”, hot glued small pieces of seaglass in the middle of each flower….and then decided to paint on a polka dot detail to give it a little more Spring in it’s step!  Sometimes the best plan is to not have one at all…then you can’t ever be wrong.

And the project is always a cinch.  :)

Update:  I even hung my wreath by the super simple hanging tip found here.

So now let’s see what your cinchy projects and tips are.  I’m looking forward to pinning and facebooking so many new ideas.

The  It’s a Cinch party is open until March 30th at midnight and we’ll be posting some party highlights next Tuesday!


And then go check in on my friends:
Kelly at Eclectically Vintage
Linda at it all started with paint
Andrea at The Cottage Market
Kari at Thistlewood Farm

And, if you haven’t decided to Pass It On yet … check in here for some inspiration!  I’d love to see if you do Pass It On … please feel free to link it to my Facebook page.  :)

  1. your vacation looks amazing — your wreath is cinchy perfection but the other stuff a bit more overwhelming those tax people should get it together and know that blogging is much more important : ) hugs!

  6. Yippie you’re back! Your wreath is so inviting – does that mean I’m invited to Curacao?!

    Looks like you and your family had a fantastic time! Oh, I do like your spring wreath…

  8. Your spring wreath is so charming :-) Love that the sea glass & driftwood give it a bit of a beachy vibe :-)

    As you said, sometimes the best projects are the ones that just sort of evolve as you go along. It’s always fun to just let your creativity flow and see where you end up :-)

    {If you send me your address, I might very well end up hand-delivering the BEACH letters! ;-) }

  9. Welcome back!! Cute pictures (and, cute SIL Bonnie! That made me laugh!)

    I linked up a couple of my recent projects that are a CINCH to make ;-)

  10. Welcome home! It looks like you had fun! Your wreath is precious! I love it! Who knew a dog bed could turn into this! Thanks for hosting! I made an easy French document memo board for this.

  11. Thank you for the invite to your party! I love your wreath, what cute fabric…must have been a very stylish dog bed :) Looks like you had a wonderful time at Disney, glad you are all back..it always feels good to come home after a vacation.

  12. The wreath looks great! Welcome back. :)

    For a minute I thought you were going to list your taxes as part of the “cinch” project. The paperwork reduction act wasn’t THAT good, but maybe better in Curacao!

    Hi Karah,

    Just stopping in to say thanks for hosting the “It’s a Cinch” link party. I’ve enjoyed visiting the posts and have snagged a few ideas and a lot of inspiration. Now if I can just figure out where to plug-in and download some motivation it will be all good :)

    You’ve put a “spring” in my step with your creative loveliness.

    Have a blessed day!

  23. Claire says:

    Hi Karah!

    I think your wreath covers all bases and counts as a submission to all the Spring parties! Great idea for a way to use sea glass :) So pretty!

    Thanks for letting me know about the Link Party.

    Great job w/ the wreath. (It may be sick and run but I kinda enjoy doing out taxes each year-but not as much as crafting)
