Crafty Door Sign

Knock Knock (Bark Bark, Wahhhhhh!!!) & a Free Printable

The Dog that Barks Loudly            

I have a dog. A big one. His barks are loud and thunderous even though he’s a total lover.

I also have kids that nap.

Are you seeing where I am going with this?

The doorbell sends the house into complete and total chaos – with dog barking and running, kids waking up and screaming (and then also running) and me trying to shush and stop the frantic dog from crashing into the front door (have I mentioned he’s blind?).

Knock Knock Sharpie

I needed a solution, I had a Sharpie, and this is what I came up with. Hopefully they take the hint, because the tape on the doorbell wasn’t working! 😀

Crafty Door Sign

I wrapped a Styrofoam frame with burlap (because anything harder knocks on the door when it’s windy – UGH!), looped a black S with twine and added the faux succulent for a splash of drought resistant color. I stuck the sign on the S with some Scotch mounting squares and hung my new creation on my door, with a little prayer for some sweet silence.

On the Door

I had a friend that said, ” I NEED THAT!” so I thought… hmm… maybe there might be more of us out there, caught in the no-doorbells-at-naptime phase, so I whipped up a free printable for those of you with dogs or babies or BOTH!

       

Blessings & Prayers for Sweet Silent Naptimes,

– D

New Stickelberry Designs on New Fabric from Zazzle

If you follow me on social media, you know I’ve been getting some happy mail lately. Nothing makes this gal happier than getting fabric delivered to my front door! And if it’s my own design, even better.

So imagine my excitement when I discovered that my beloved Zazzle is now offering custom printed fabric! I had to get on that, and fast. I normally print my designs with another vendor, but I have always been happy with Zazzle’s products, and wanted to check out the fabric for myself. PLUS – Zazzle always has THE BEST sales!

 

I’ve been feeling the corals and grays lately, so I came up with this collection of designs and ordered some swatches and a couple of yards to test them out.Zazzle Fabric by Stickelberry

I also worked on something special in blue that I’ll be sharing with you later.

New Blue Squared Design – I have big plans for it!

The quality of the fabric I ordered is great, and they all came individually wrapped with labels on the packaging indicating the type of fabric and how it should be treated. So lovely!  And how beautiful are these swatches all serged up and everything?!
