Before I introduce today’s feature, I thought it was high time I got off my rump and chose a June winner for the Lisa Leonard necklace.  June’s winner is CHAR WITH CRAP I’VE MADE

One more thing before I set you loose for creative goodness…..I’m now a contributor for The Daily Brainstorm.  Check it out!image


I just can’t help it.  So many crafty creative women that I got to meet at the GNO (girls night out) in Utah.  I just gotta feature another one.

Every Crafty Endeavor

Amanda’s on the left….right next to me, then Stephanie and then Topsy Turvey….imageShe is such a cutie patootie.  Loved her hair……I went the whole night not even knowing she was pregnant….I hate it when pregnant women have a better figure than me.  But the justice in all this is that she’s got a 10 mo already…….evil laugh.  :)  


She makes the sweetest stitched family portraits.  And she’s cheap very reasonable.  imageYes, she sells them….better get your order in now before she’s got 2 babies to run after.imageShe dabbles in all things creative.  My favorite kind of gal.  She’s been making these cute charm necklaces………and I think she’s doing a giveaway.  image  And you know I love a gal who can walk the isles of Goodwill with vision.  She found this poor little table just screaming to be spruced up. image   Unbelievable transformation!  She’s on a blue kick…….you’ll have to head over and see what else she’s painted blue.imageAnother fun re-do…….this one not so sad looking, but it is oak…….shudder….Paint the oak! Paint the oak!  Say it with me people…….imageIt’s not blue, but it’s perfect!  A little spray paint and it’s just perfect.  Love it. imageWhile we're talking spray paint……I must admit, I’ve never thought about spray painting a canvas bag…….until now.imageShe’s got a tutorial……gotta love that.image

Now one tutorial she’s got on her site…….I am SO excited for.  I have wanted to play with EnviroTex forever.  It totally intimidates me.  But she’s got a pretty good tutorial…….imageShe made these tiles for her bathroom with it.   I’m ready…….I know I can do it now.image 
And if you’re just not the crafty kind…..she’s got great recipes too.  I’m sure you eat.

   These cheddar biscuits look pretty good…….Numm numm num.image   

Alright everyone.  Do what you do best.  Enjoy!

Enter my monthly Lisa Leonard giveaway by leaving a comment on any of the July posts….the more you comment the better your chances.  image I’d also LOVE it if you’d join my Google friend and Google feed.  I’m obsessed.

Love Amanda!! Glad you featured her today, she's a sweetie!

Tomas said...

I love the creativity, specially the background.

Susan said...

The EnviroTex intimidates me too. But, I really like those tiles!!! May have to give that a try myself.

Kim -today's creative blog said...

Malia- you crack me up......did my sister put you up to saying that? She always teases me about looking like Jennifer Aniston. Maybe if I lose another 30lbs.....

Oh my goodness!! What a fun Friday surprise!! Thank you so much for featuring my blog today and for all the sweet things you said. Don't be intimidated by Enviro Tex - just mix it really well and you will do just fine!!

and it is really funny that you said that about oak - my husband works with wood and HATES to have it painted but if I bring home something oak - he never says one word when I break out the spray paint!! funny.
