Thread & Bobbin Holder

I am in the process of reorganizing all my craft stuff. I have tons and tons of different stuff and several plastic tubs under my house of stuff. I don’t even remember what is in those plastic tubs. I want to get all of them out and have all of that stuff also organized in my new craft room/office/ homework room. But first I have to organize everything that is already in there.

One of the many projects I have been working on is a way to organize my thread and bobbins. I thought about the holder (can’t think of the name of it) that holds thread so you can see all of it but I don’t have tons and tons of different colors & I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on it. Also I really wanted something more personalized.

I made a holder out of a wooden “S” for Sheena!! I bought the “S” from Hobby Lobby and painted it to match the color scheme in the sunroom. Then I used nails and hammered them in the “S” so I had them grouped in twos (one for the thread another for the matching bobbin).

I am going to sell them in my shop Sheena Creates.


Girls Room Redecorated

I have been working on redecorating the girls’ room.  My list of things I am making for the girls’ room is really long.  {{{{{Shhhhh}}}}} Don’t tell Adam!!  Sometimes my projects turn into his projects, but lately I have tried to be better about it.  When we are done their room will be hot pink, lime green and bright orange.  I know, bright right!!

The first project I have completed for their room is custom made jewelry boxes.  What girl doesn’t want a standing jewelry box like Mommy?  Honestly, Alyssa could use one as large as mine but she has been collecting necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings since she was two and she has a lot of dress up jewelry.  When we moved the dress up jewelry to their bedroom I divided up the jewelry which helped with Alyssa’s over flowing too much.  I have listed the custom jewelry boxes in my shop Sheena Creates for anyone who is interested in ordering one make sure you check it out.

I was really antsy and wanted to start painting the walls.  So far we have only painted one wall and Adam did it for me.  One of my projects that was turned into his.  The first wall we painted is hot pink and boy is it pink.  Before we move on to painting the next wall I have a few other projects to finish on the pink wall.

Valentines Countdown

A few weeks ago I found a Valentine’s countdown on Pinterest and decided I wanted to make one for my kids since I didn’t make the Advent calendar like I had wanted to for Christmas.

Adam brought home a piece of wood for me. I found some cute plastic heats at Dollar Tree and decided they would be perfect to put candy or a small note in. I laid out the hearts on the wood to figure out how big I wanted him to cut the piece of wood. I used my Cricut to cut the stencil for the words. I did copy the same phrase from what I found on Pinterest. “Happy Valentine’s Day! Countdown to Kisses!” After I painted the wood black, painted the phrase on in red and hot glued my hearts on I used stickers for the numbers.

Now I just have to decided what I’m going to put in them. I have been thinking about a piece of candy for each kid or a note saying a reason I love them each day. I may change it up some and put a note in some of them and candy in some of them.


Lately I have been in the mood to make stuff & I have found so many things on pinterest that I want to make. This weekend was my mother in laws birthday so I decided to make her a photo display I found on pinterest. Thanks to Facebook I was easily able to find pictures of my three nieces so I was able to give it to her with pictures instead of without. I used an ultrasound picture of Bradley so I didn’t leave him out. I changed it up a little bit from the one I found on pinterest, I decided to put the kids’ names on the pins that holds their picture instead of flowers. It was really easy to make, the part that took the longest was waiting on the paint to dry.
