A little something about "The Girl Behind the Blog".

My name is Marni and I'm from good 'ol Arizona.  I am a mom to 2 crazy boys, ages 9 and 4, and have a sweet angel baby girl that passed away at birth.We miss her everyday and we are living our lives in such a way that we will be able to see her again someday and spend eternity together!  I LOVE being a mom more than anything! My boys keep me on my toes... football, homework, scouts, preschool, baseball, pizza parties, I LOVE it all!! My cute husband and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary! I am so blessed to be married to my bestest friend!

Now, about Sassy Sites!


 I was blog hopping one day and LOVED lots of ideas that everyone had on their blogs. That gave me an idea...to feature YOUR Sassy Sites! I am a little obsessed with organization... and I thought what better than to organize the blog world! So, that's exactly what I did. I choose a topic for the day and find the cutest stuff out there to show off. Somedays it's cupcakes, somedays it's curtains. I try and stick with a little bit of a routine though:

Monday- Made by ME!

Tuesday- Trash to Treasure link up

Friday- Featuring YOU link up

Sunday- Sassy Spotlight!

Then, all of the other days are left to featuring YOU and YOUR Sassy Sites! I love what I do! My favorite thing about crafts is featuring other people! I love to see the projects come together and get to know the person behind the craft at the same time! It's been a fun experience! I look forward to many more crafts, hot glue guns burns, and making lots of new friends!

 cut your pendants

my triangles are 8.5" from side to side and 11" top to bottom

glue the scrapbook paper to the card stock.

 add your ribbon/ball fringe/ric rac/fur

 to the top of your pendant.

I hot glued the ribbon on the back of the pendant.

add lace to the top.

 add embellishments

 ribbon, stickers, clipart, bling, etc.

distress the edges with an ink pad

to make the bottom design, cut 2 circles

 different sizes, out of leftover scrapbook paper and

glue the big circle to the back of the pendant

hot glue a piece of fur into a circle

place smaller circle on top

add a bling to the center! :)

punch a small hole in each adge of banner.

put your wire through and then

twist ends of wire

add ribbon onto the wire

I went to the scrapbook store and punched

these out of chipboard.

These would be so cute with black glitter on them.

I decided to go with vinyl letters.

I bordered each letter with white cardstock.

I added a little bling to each corner.


 I love it!
