Turn out your HEART Light..


I have no idea how the rest of the song goes.

I figure you are all now humming with me because you can't remember the words either.

I hate being I have company..your welcome!

So, I have made my own version of one of the cutest, free printables that you have all
seen around blog world. I love Sprik Sprak!

I  just made it on my own computer. Mostly because when I tried to print the free one, it didn't print as clear as I wanted it to.

Lets just pretend that it didn't take me the entire episode of the Bachelor to make this.
Who knew that the spacing would be so tricky?

doodle v-day alpha art

I printed it, glued a dollar store pick, minus the pick, on the "o."

Then I glued it in this shadow box frame.

Never mind that this is the 3rd project that has lived in this frame.

Hey, I like my projects to be non-permanent.

So i change my mind a lot...(act surprised)

I made a ruffle with my handy, dandy needle and thread and glued it to one side of the print.

(this may or may not have had to be done because I must have been really tired when I made the alphabet has 2 letter "P")

I then pulled out my fine point sharpie and went to town.

I like it much better with a little "sharpie bling."


Whole project was FREE!!

Fabulous right?

What can you add a little Sharpie Bling too?


  1. Love the fabric, and that you ruffled it gives it great texture!!

  2. Fun project! I'll have to try this. Consider coming and linking up at I Made It! Monday at Ninth Street Notions.

  3. Super stinkin cute!!! I love that you have 2 "P's" as that is something I would totally do and not even notice! GREAT job and thank you for linking!!

  4. Oh, that is so pretty. I think the ruffle up the side is genius. :)

  5. Nice one. A new follower form Thrifty Thursday blog hop. See you.

  6. Very cute! I love the creative things you come up with that cost nothing. Do you have a tutorial on how to ruffle? I think I could figure it out but would love to see what you do.

  7. What's awesome about this project is, it's Cute and Free!!! :) Can't beat that! :) Good Job :)

  8. Hi there! Thanks for your kind words on my blog. To answer your questions- YES- unfortunately, you have to strip your table top down to the raw wood. For me, it took sanding with 120 grit paper and my electric sander 3 times, then applying stripper, letting it dry, scraping it off, applying again, letting it dry, scraping it off, scrubbing with mineral spirits and steel wool, then sanding AGAIN with 120 grit, then hitting it twice with 220. Whew- I used Minwax Dark Walnut stain. I applied it with a foam craft brush (usually a big no-no, but I'm a rule breaker!) know, I'll do a post on all this for you. I have pics. I'll come back and send you the link. Thanks again. Can't wait to see your kitchen!

  9. oh- and love this cutie craft decor! such a great idea.

  10. Totally cute! Hand-drawing it makes it so unique and fun. Love the touch of the fabric too!

  11. LOVE your version of the printable I created! So cute! :)


Thanks for stopping by. Hope that my craziness might have inspired you! I would to hear what you have to say. (as long as it is nice)
