ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Especially For You!

Where did January go? Seriously! I rang in the new year with my kiddos, blinked a couple times and here it is the end of the month and ALMOST Valentine's Day!!! I have a feeling this year is just going to fly by so I better get with it and start planning all the Valentine's that need to be made!

Today, I wanted to share with you a project that you can make for those special people in your world that could use a picture of your kids, grandkids or those adorable Fur babies everyone seems to have.

To make this project I used a Michaels wooden picture frame, covered it in Red cardstock, outlined it in Berry Trendy Twine, then layered paper and metal hearts all around and Finished it off with a Big heart on an Action Wobble. The face stamp is one of the Wide Eyed Kids from Peachy Keen Stamps and the sentiment is from My Creative Time.

I love that this little heart wobbles to and fro!

This project is being featured on Action Wobbles Blog today and I would love it if you stopped by to see all the projects my fellow design team members create using these fun wobble accents.

Well, I better sign off for now as I have 70 valentine's to make for my children's classmates. Anyone want to help?  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog I appreciate and enjoy reading your comments and I hope you all have a great day.

Turning 2 Is Hard Work!

The party planning and construction is done! My little boy turned 2 years old on Monday and I am amazed at how quickly this last year has gone. Since we were out of town just days before his party I couldn't do everything I wanted to do; but nonetheless, his party was perfect and he had a blast!

Today I'm guest designing again on Trendy Twine's blog and have a super cute yet easy project to share with you. Every construction worker needs his/her tools, so I made these for everyone at the party.

A bundle of yellow and white silverware wrapped in black and orange napkins and tied with matching Trendy Twine in Bumblebee and Halloween colors.  And don't you just LOVE the "DIG IN!" tag, so glad I had it in my favorite stamp collection.

Now, filling a dump truck full of these little beauties proved to be a bad idea as they slid right out and ended up all over the place. So I went with plan "B" and stuffed them inside a Stanley tool box. If you look closely behind my little man you can see a few still hanging out there.

An afternoon of building your own burgers and then building your own sundaes was so much fun but follow that with a HUGE bag of legos and a John Deere truck and this little 2 year old was in heaven.

Well, there's no rest for the wicked, or the crafty mom, as another birthday is approaching and I only have a week to get that one planned and constructed!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed the month long posts of construction party projects. I'll be back in a week with another project or two, Until then, Don't forget to stop by the Trendy Twine Shop HERE and get some of this wonderful Twine!!!

Thank you Lesley for having me as a Guest Designer this month!

You Totally Rock!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I'm excited to be guest designing over on the Trendy Twine Blog.

As some of you know, I'm in the middle of construction - planning my son's 2nd birthday and this week I'm working on the party favors. Now it wouldn't be one of our parties if I didn't have a handmade favor to give to all of our guests. 

This adorable dump truck was cut from the Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge using my Gypsy. I then added a Stampin' Up treat cup and filled it with Orange, Brown and Yellow M&Ms.  After stamping the "YOU ROCK!" sentiment from My Creative Time's stamp collection, I added Trendy Twine's  Bumblebee and Orange Licorice twine. 
The colors are perfect for the Construction theme!!!

Who wouldn't love to get this Super Cute favor?!?!?

Now if you don't have any Trendy Twine yet I suggest you visit the shop HERE to get some of this twine for yourself and make sure you check out all the other goodies available!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and
I hope you have a great weekend!

Hello My Creative Friends, I hope you all had a very Happy New Year!
Did you spend it with family and friends? At home or at a party away? How about resolutions... Did you make any and are you going to keep them? 
I always vow to get healthy, eat right, spend more time with the family 
and Craft more often then I did last year!!!

To help keep the last of my resolutions, I have some help on my side. 
I'm one of the newest Designers for Action Wobble Springs and will be showcasing a project on the Action Wobble blog at least twice a month. 

For my first project with Action Wobble I thought I'd share with you the process I go through when I'm creating. Whether its a card, a gift or a birthday invitation for one of my kids I usually go through the same process. 

First, I sketch out some ideas - 
this just happens to be an idea of my son's birthday invitation.

Then I pull out all my supplies and I get the creativity flowing, some things work and some don't but that's what makes all this so much fun. 

Taking your original idea, transferring it into something tangible...

And creating something really fun!

On this Invitation I used:
Boys will be Boys - Dump Truck die cut
Brick wall embossing folder
Brads with screw heads
The Caution sign is a free online clip art
And to make the Dump Truck move I used an Action Wobble!

I'm not sure who's more excited about this party... ME or the Almost 2 year old we're throwing the party for!!! Well, That's my first project for 2014 and I hope you enjoyed learning more about my thought process and the creativity I put into each and every step.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I hope you visit again soon!
