If you've been reading over the last few weeks, you'll likely remember me lamenting my lack of spring decor. Well...I have to say that I've been busy, busy, busy and am crafting quite a collection! By the time spring is over, I'll have a whole bunch of pretty things to show off! I'm feeling pretty good about that too---it's fun to look around and feel the satisfaction of my own hard work!
Here are a few things I worked on yesterday and Sunday...(click on any picture to enlarge it)
|I got this great idea from Lauren at My Wonderfully Made. I have to say that I don't like mine quite as much as hers but I think I'd like mine better if I had the right supplies for "antiquing" the paper. I guess I need to put in another order to my best friend and Close To My Heart consultant, Audra's scrapbooking website! Want to check it out yourself? Visit her here.|
|I added this sweet iris embellishment, as well as a red daisy and a few other little things...and I was done! Love it---thanks so much Lauren!|
|Then I decided to try out some of these altered bottles I've been seeing around the Bloggyhood. I had saved these spice bottles a few years ago for a different project that I never got to. I like their pretty simplicity.|
|This one reminds me of my 2-year-old, Avalon. Her baby colors were pink and green. The ribbon around the top is leftover from a basket and pillow I made for Audra's daughter's wedding last spring. (Happy almost Anniversary Katrina and Dane!)|
|Or so the mothers believe...|
So...as you can see, things are getting pretty springy around here! It's nice to be getting rid of my earthy-toned primitive decor and into something a little more romantic. I'll be having one heck of a yard sale if this rain ever stops...!!
