What's Up, Cupcake? Menu

Home Sweet...

Whew! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks! As I mentioned before, I haven't had a lot of time to do my normal crafts.  Work has been all consuming, I've had dance competitions, then dance injuries, birthday's and amongst all of this trying to get out to enjoy the fantastic spring weather.

As promised, I want to share my finished cross stitch project.  My mother-in-law recently purchased a new home and has been working around the clock at getting her new place remodeled and ready for her to move in.  When she first walked into the place with my husband, they dubbed the home her 'hobbit home.' She had just moved to California from Texas and things were a bit smaller, and the place definitely needed a little TLC.  So throughout the whole process we fondly called the place her hobbit home.

I wanted to make her a nice housewarming present, and while flipping through a recent cross stitch magazine, I found some nice housewarming themed designs.  An idea popped into my head and I started crafting a personalized design for her.

I think the final design turned out great!  She seems to love it and instantly hung it up as the first thing on her bare walls.

Do you have any favorite housewarming gift ideas?  I have a few friends who are doing some remodeling projects this summer and have been ready to embark on my next gift idea.
