Spring Inside





Here are some pictures of a table decoration I created for spring. I got some tree branches and painted them a robin's egg blue along with some paper mache eggs. I dyed some egg shells with Rit dye which I scattered around with some little flowers, egg shells and blue and green Christmas glass balls. The little birds are candles I got at Pottery Barn. The sweet little bird in the tree is from Jo-Anne's.

Spring Inside and Out!




Here are some photos of my beautiful daffodils! They have survived heavy rain, high winds, hail and frost here in Illinois! We are now having a really beautiful spring here with weather in the 80's!

Easter Cookies


For the Easter Sunday get together with family I made Easter cookies! I made eggs, chicks and bunnies decorated with pastel colored frosting and sugars. I have cookie cutters for every holiday and they are so much fun to make. When I ask "what should I bring?" the answer is always - your cookies!!

Easter Tag Book






I made 5 tag books for Easter this year. 4 to give to family and friends and one to keep. Tag books are made from shipping tags purchased at the office supply store and are great creative fun to make!
Its a great way to use up little bits of ribbon, papers and embellishments and lots of your stamps.

I colored many of the tags with TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS INK which comes in wonderful colors. Front page is some paper and flowers I found at HOBBY LOBBY. I attached all with hemp twine and attached some beads and a plastic tag that you can glue your own images to (Tim Holtz). The back page is some paper I made.
Any questions about the stamps let me know.
I made 35 tags and each one is different which kept the creativity going!

Happy Halloween!
