New Blog and Another Present

How do you like the new look? 
I love, love, love it!  Cindy, over at this blog designed it for me.  She did a great job and was so easy to work with.  If you ever want a new fresh look for a GREAT price, look her up.  you won't be disappointed.

It is Thursday, so I am linking up with Gussy Sews for her "Inspiration Workshop." 
Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!
This week the theme is "DIY."  I posted this DIY project yesterday, and today I have another one.  It is just DIY week around here:)

Here is what I got my other sister-in-law, Kim (Tim's sister), for her birthday.  I was in the crafty mood on the week of September 19th, so I made her a "Family Rules Board."

I can't take credit for this one either.  I got the idea from here (the link is to the blog, not the actual post because I can't find it anymore).  I changed up her version to make it easier and quicker.  I am all about easy and quick but still looking cute.

The rules in the Bettelli household are as follows:
1.  Obey Your Parents
2.  Keep Your Promises
3.  Encourage Your Siblings
4.  Share Everything
5.  Say Your Prayers . . . Always Thank God For This Family
6.  Use Your Manners
7.  Sing Silly, Dance Crazy
8.  Use Your Hands For Hugging, Not Hitting
9.  Always Say, "I Love You."

I made one for our house, and Kim really liked it.  She asked for one for her birthday, so I obliged.  They are pretty easy to make.  If you want to make one and have questions, you can ask in the comments.  I promise I will answer.
