Spring Project: Ribbon Wristlets!

This project has been on my to-do list for awhile now. My bloggy friend Cristin @ ser.en.d.ip.i.ty did a post on cute wristlets that she had made before Christmas and I was immediately enamored. I quickly put an ad on Freecycle to see if anyone had any leftover ribbon or trim so I could make some. I never got any response to my ad, so that project was put in my to-do pile.

Spring Project: Burlap Flowered Topiaries

I got a wonderful tip from Lindsey @ Pleated Poppy last week -- she clued me in to a great place to get beautiful fabric, Hawthorne Threads. They have a great selection of yummy fabric and it's really easy to order. I was thrilled when a package came for me TWO days after I ordered!  It was all so pretty - I didn't want to cut any of it up. I finally decided to make some little Spring … [Read more...]

Easter Craft: what to do with those plastic eggs

I got out my Easter bins a few days ago. Why is it that I always think I have way more cute holiday decorations than I actually do - lol?

Freecycle Project: Spring Kitchen {spoon} Wreath

I love freecycle! I have listed a bunch of things and people come and take it -- I love to think my stuff I don't need anymore is going to someone who needs it (I hope anyway).  I have put in requests a few times for things that I could use for projects. A few weeks ago I was imagining all sorts of projects using silverware. So I put a request on Freecycle for mismatched silverware. And the … [Read more...]

Burlap Project: Ruffled Spring Pennant

Time to take down the Valentine decorations. But what to put up to fill the cold, bleak Winter space?? I decided to make a burlap pennant, but instead of a triangular one, I thought it might be fun to make square-ish one with colorful SPRING hues to brighten up my space.  To make it, first I cut out a pattern. I took a piece of copy paper. Cut the length to 6 inches.  Then I folded the … [Read more...]
