4th of July Quilted Table Runner

I started this project months ago and FINALLY got it done {and just in the nick of time}
{pre wash}
I saw the idea for a quilted table runner of at Diary of a Quilter and knew I need to make one. 
Check out the great tutorial here! It's wonderful, especially for the beginning quilter like me.
I love the idea of using strips of fabric, so nice to put some of my leftovers to good use!! I have SO much to learn and need a whole lot more practice binding but happy with how it turned out!
I now have the quilting bug and can see Christmas and Halloween table runners in the future!

Dry Erase Menu Board

I finally did a craft!! Yahoo, it's been awhile! Even better, I crafted with a friend which ALWAYS makes projects so much more fun. We saw this idea for a Dry Erase Menu Board via Pinterest/Make and Takes and knew we had to make one for ourselves!
This project was super fun and EASY! I have been dying to get myself organized when it comes to menu planning and I think this board is a step in the right direction. 
All you need is a frame {got mine at the $ store}
scrapbook paper
paint, ribbon, vinyl {optional}
If you don't want your days of the week vinyl, you can always hand write them.
For mine, I decided to glue some magnets on the back so it can go on my fridge! I love love love it!!!
