My version of the milk carton bird house

So... the pictures aren't the best.  I had to take them with my phone and the lighting isn't great at 11pm.

I think it came out cute.  I added another birdie on the side of the "house" and put a baggie of Easter colored MMs inside. 

Oh, I just can't wait for spring!

Milk Carton Bird House

Just saw this online. Oh... it looks so springy and fresh! I am going to attempt making it (hopefully sometime today... between laundry and cleaning and tending to a sick child). Will post a picture of my creation... if it happens.

Flower Fun

Here are some "springy" flowers I created on this dreary and wet morning.  I had so much fun playing with them.  Now to decide where their home will be.

Color Pencil Art

How cute is this idea? ... and cheap... well, inexpensive.  I can totally see giving this as a gift at a baby shower.

For a video tutorial and more ideas for this project check out this video from Studio 5

Women's Retreat Project

Just came up with the project for the ladies to make at our church retreat that's coming up in a few weeks.  These flowers are so easy to make... and not only are they cute, they are also functional.  They have little clips that hold photos, notes or what have you.

Freezer Paper Stenciling

These twin sisters are funny. I love their ideas and many of the projects they do. Hmmm... I am getting all kinds of ideas using freezer paper for stenciling. Can't wait to try it. Will have to let you know how it works.

By the way, when they mention that you need to use fabric paint for stenciling on T-Shirts or items you plan to wash... You CAN use acrylic paint, just make sure to set it with a hot iron, through a cloth, and it should be all set.

Amy Butler Rocks!

I love Amy Butler.  Her patterns, colors and designs inspire me.  Now I just need to get brave enough to sew something with her beautiful fabric.

How to make a paper pouch or clutch purse out of school folders

This is a great and VERY easy idea.
