Chopsaw + Tauna =..............

Since my hubs has traveled a lot
I've had some extra time on my hands.

I had a choice, pull up a chair to the fridge and
eat nonstop.
Or I could do some crafts.

Let me just say the following pictures may induce
nausea if your name is Kristina.
Don't read further....your retinas may get burned.

I'll start by saying I'm so over winter!
So even though I have 3 feet of snow outside and a drift 9 feet tall,
I'm trying to "Spring" up the house.

A little St. Patrick's Day Subway art.

Top O' of Mornin' to ya!


I have never made letter blocks before, but decided all I needed to be able to do was run a chopsaw.
Mission accomplished.....fingers intact.

And then I figure why stop with St. Paddy's Day?...


I had seen this dimensional wreath here done for Valentine's Day.
I wanted to do Easter.



So even though the weather outside is frightful.....
I'll pretend it's almost Spring.
Now, I'm off to do some Easter Subway art.

Ha, you would know that Kristina would be first to comment! As Reagan says, I love your arts and craps! See You are a decorator, I knew you were, you just try and be modest. Your Irish get up is darling and you have a great jump on Easter! Just keep willing Spring to get here and it will.

My absolute favorite is your black framed letter "E"!!! Gorgeous darling!

When I visit your blog, it's just like coming home again...so fun! Your new lucky to be alive decor is adorable and surely warms up your home.

We are 39 currently...coming out of a "cold snap" and we laugh hysterically at that. Keep crafting, it will keep you sane and head over for good when you can. After thawing, you will wonder how you ever did it!

I hear the Bobcats are playing state BB here on Thursday. Need a B&B? We'd love to see you!

jen said...

Don't get the barf comment. But I think they're darling.

Mildred said...

How talented you are - everything is cute as can be. It will be Halloween before I find my craft supplies in our moving boxes!!!

Connie said...

What? Do you mean if you craft then you don't eat. Hmmmmm, I multi-task and eat while i craft, teehee!

Saimi said...

Very festive!! But I'm with Connie, don't you eat and craft? I mean really!

Oh well, I'm impressed just the same!

Happy Spring!

Valerie said...

I love it ALL, but especially the wreath. Great job.

Emmy said...

Cute cute projects! I just recently commented on someone else blog how St. Patrick days decorations aren't really cute, well you proved me wrong.

Love it!

blueviolet said...

Holy craftiness! You are out of control,but it's worth it. You are GOOD!

JoAnn said...

Thou art hereby known as the "Craftin' Queen". Please wear your tiara and sash at all times!!

I be sick o' winter too. Darn you snow! and wind!

Barbaloot said...

It all looks way cute---and I'm very impressed! I totally would have picked the first option that involved the fridge:)

Kimmie said...

Tauna, you are SO great, so amazingly talented and such a great friend!! AND you always can make me laugh!!

LOVE your FUN SPRING projects. I am SO ready for winter to be over as well!! It's sad when we look forward to the days when it will be 36 degrees because that is WARM to us folks in S.E. Idaho.

I need to pull down my Valentine's hearts and kisses and get some Easter/Spring things put up.

It's SO fun to see your projects after having been to your house to see it in real life. I need to stop by and see you so I can see these new projects.

Hope Howards home for a week or two before he has to leave again. Enjoy each and every moment and I'm SO glad your fingers are all in tact after using the chop saw! (Wink)!

Kim said...

I'll take some IRISH and SPRING my way . . . .if you're up to it. Looks great.

Hope Howie gets home soon.

Mikki said...

You are so freaking awesome Tauna! These are adorable. Now, I'm thinking you need to do a tutorial!

Ann Marie said...

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It makes me so Happy to See St. Patricks Day decor!
What fun you have been having!!

I love all of your creations!
....But the chocolate creations are the bestest I must say.....

Lisa said...

I totally love that you put the wreath in the frame. WELL DONE, THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL TAUNA!

M-Cat said...

I will admit you do some mighty fine "crafting".

Exceptional if I might add. Did it all take a lot of "crafting" effort or had you prepared with the proper concoction to make sure that everyone came out okay?

Love the "crafts" baby. Even on my best days, I can't create anything quite so spectacular!

Happy Mom said...

Cute stuff, girl! I love a woman who can use a chop saw!

Momza said...

I should've read this before I wrote my own post last night/ this morning.
You make St. Patty's Day look good!
Glad that you escaped being sucked into the fridge.

Lesa said...

chopsaw + Tauna = awesome!

Lisa Loo said...

There is an alternative to eating while the hubby is gone????!!!!!!


Why oh why couldn't somebody have told me this 22 years ago????!!!!!!

(Your crafts are darling--you have such great skillz!)

T said...

way cute - even if Kristina is having convulsions :)

and I think those are some of the gosh-darned most adorable letter blocks Ever :)

tammy said...

Those almost make me like St. Patrick's Day decor.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

What cute items you made. I haven't crafted in years. I really love those easter eggs!

Heather said...

Lucky! I want to make some of those Lucky blocks! You are really good at crafting! Love the egg wreath and the Easter blocks! They are so darling! Great job!

Our Seven Dwarfs said...

I love your Easter wreath. Where did you get those adorable eggs?

Shawna Bates said...

I love the decor!! I am really loving that wreath too!!

Controlling My Chaos said...

Pretend being the operative word. We don't get spring in Idaho until late June. Super cute stuff though.
