Changeable Holiday mini burlap wreath on a chalkboard

My inspiration came from here http://www.tiedribbon.com/2014/01/valentines-decor.html.  Mine is a mini burlap wreath.  I used junk!!!  I had lying around my house.  I spray painted the platter with chalkboard paint.  The white ring came off of lights we replaced in our home.   I cut scrap burlap into 2 inch squares and folded them and then glued them on to the ring.

Key to my heart valentine burlap door mat

I found my inspiration here http://honeywerehome.blogspot.com/2013/01/valentine-ideas-diy-door-mat.html
She had purchased her door mat at target.  Then she wrote the words and heart on.

 I had these awesome rooster rugs lying around.  I purchased them from the dollar store a while back
 I cut some white fabric and mod podged it over the rooster ( to act as a primer)
 I cut and mod podged burlap over top of the fabric layer.  I used the iron on low to smooth out wrinkles.  I forgot to take pictures of the next step.  I cut a freezer paper stencil on the silhouette machine.  I ironed it on.  Then sponge painted.
Here is my finished rug.  Sorry it's sideways. I couldn't get the picture to turn:(

wooden disc earrings

My inspiration for these earrings came from http://www.the36thavenue.com/2013/12/diy-coasters-tutorial.html.  She made wood coasters.  I loved the patterns and designs she used and thought they would make great earrings.
 I purchased a pack of wooden disc's from Michaels.  

I stained most of the disc's

 I used contact paper to make my design here.  I also cut templates on my silhouette machine
 She had spray painted her coasters.  I chose to use nail polish.  the color's are endless
Here are a few other designs

My Sister in law contacted me to make this fun sign, for her twin sister who just has a new baby.  It turned out so fun.  I wish I could take credit for the idea.  I was just the hands that put it together.

I have so many friends who have birthday's this month.  I whipped up these fork and spoon towels, using a freezer paper stencil.  They came together in about 20mins.  I think I will make more to give as birthday gifts.
