Bee Amazing - Hydrangea HIppo

Hi everyone!  Hope you are doing well today.  I have been incredibly busy of late and really just haven't been taking time to maintain my blog.  For that I am sorry.  I guess I have also been feeling a bit down when it comes to the work I have been producing...and maybe a bit "burned out".

Well, I have decided I should try and do better.  Make for me, and not for others.  So.....Ok, well, enough of my pity party.

This is a project I made for Hydrangea Hippo.  I am really pretty happy with the way it turned out.

The kit I used to make the mobile, Bee Amazing, is available in the Hydrangea Hippo Etsy.  You should grab one and check out the other dt members use of this same kit.

Washi Up

Hi everyone!  Hope all is going well for you.  For me?  Things are just a bit crazy right now.  That said, I thought I would pop in and share with you some goings on.

First off, if I am a bit flakey and things don't seem to be happening, it is probably because swim season is gearing up, and once again I am president.  Add to that Brighton's graduation and party, in laws coming to town, school wrapping up for the summer.  I truly feel like I am spending my days running in circles.

I have a huge list of projects I have made that I have been wanting to share with you and I am going to try really hard to do that.

So, how about this little project I made to store my washi tape.
This was pretty easy to make.  A wooden frame I purchased at Michaels painted with some black chalkboard paint, a few cup hooks screwed into the frame with dowels to hold the tapes on.  I think it probably took longer for the paint to dry than it did to put the whole thing together.
I had seen this project on The Twinery blog a few months ago and since I usually buy my twine in skeins, not on spools, I adapted it for washi.  I really need to find more ways to use all this washi I have been hoarding.  But until then, at least I have a pretty display to hang on the wall.  lol

One more thing before I go.....Sharon Fritchman, you are the winner of the Lyric Collection Kit.  I will get it out in the mail as soon as possible.

Happy Mother's Day and Hugs.

Don't Box Me In - Your Memories Here

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you a project I made using some gorgeous Prima paper from the Annalee collection I purchased at Your Memories Here.  With just one sheet of paper and my Cricut I was able to create this beautiful box for one of Mackenzie's friend's birthday.
After cutting the box with Cricut Craft Room (so glad I am finally able to use now that I can link my Gypsy) I began the embellishment with some custom dyed lace (dyed of course with my trusty mists). I then decorated the box with some beautiful flowers and leaves from the Your Memories Here store
 as well as one of the cute little wooden bird icons.  Oh, how I am loving these little wood pieces.

We filled the inside with treats and a bit of cash (it is so hard to buy for teens) I know she just loved it.

Thanks for stopping in today.
