Quilting Through the Generations

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! My daughters Allison and Jess and my nephew J.P. made lunch for our whole family today to celebrate. What is your family doing? We usually have a recipe to talk about and share, but today I’m going to talk about one of my other hobbies – […]

Colorful Birthday Card

After the holidays there are so many birthdays in our family. My husband, my dad, my daughters, and my brother have birthdays in January and February. I was looking in my stash of handmade birthday cards and it was pretty dismal. Time to get to work! First I scoured Pinterest for some ideas. There are […]

Paper Punch Thank You Card

Most of the time we post recipes here on The PinterTest Kitchen, but this time my scrapbooking and card making is being featured. A few weeks weeks ago I needed some thank you cards. My husband had been in the ┬áhospital a few times since November and he wanted to send the nurses thank you […]

Patchwork Paper Greeting Cards

I’ve always been found of making greeting cards. I don’t send them nearly often enough, but I do prefer making them over sending store-bought cards. So, I’m always on the look out for cool card ideas on Pinterest. I’ve seen quite a few “cut out patchwork” cards (examples here and here), so I decided to […]

And even though they are Christmas ball ornaments, you could use lots of different colors so they’d be perfect for any season. Imagine them in […]

DIY Windowpane Christmas Cards

We love to make our own cards here in the Boyer household. Actually, when I was younger, I used to spend much of my free time making cards and even selling them at local craft fairs! These days, I’ve retired from card-making as a business, but I do still enjoy sending handmade cards instead of […]

Cute Band Aid Get Well Card

A few weeks ago, our cousin took a nasty spill at work and ended up in the hospital. It’s always a scary situation when a bump on the head is involved, but luckily he was discharged after a few days with only bruises and a lost tooth. Since I live in Virgina and he lives […]

Shabby Chic Coffee Filter Wreath

Everyone seems to be on the “shabby chic” kick these days when it comes to home decorating. We had a blank spot in our living room that needed filling, so I headed to the store to find something shabby chic and fabulous. Holy. Crap. Pre-made wreaths at Michaels, even small ones, cost $20+. The larger, […]
