Dear Mother, All Flowers Remind Me of You

Just in time for Mother's Day
is my version of easy gardening!
I knew as soon as I saw the new Basic Grey Paper and the cute flowers on the paper
that this was what I needed to make!
My little girl had so much helping pick out all the buttons for the flowers!
I'll be teaching a class on these in April down at Paper Cottage
and hopefully get some ready for my Etsy shop too!

Last week's Boutique was really fun!
My sister Candace and I were so busy trying to make fun stuff to share!
We were up to our eyeballs in moss, eggs and bunnies!

 I just love making bunnies!
Here's a picture of some that I made for it.
We wanted to share a little bit of our fun projects and offered a set for our
First Official Giveaway over at Crafty Sisters!

Thank you to all of you wondeful Ladies who have sent in pictures!
I have some more to post this week so we can all marvel at your great creativity!
Seriously, I love seeing what you put together, call it a guilty pleasure of mine!
Keep em' coming!

Anyone For A Spring Boutique?

I have to admit I'm really excited for this boutique that
Holiday House was so kind to invite us to be a part of. 
In fact I found myself daydreaming of all the fun things
to make and wondering why Christmas crafts couldn't all be
pretty shades of pastels and bunnies, it would be so much funner!
We Crafty Sisters have some fun things planned to bring
plus there will be tons of other cute stuff
just in time to fill those Easter Baskets!

Now what I'm really excited for is this SHOW & TELL!!!
Remember wonderful Connie?  We featured her
drop dead gorgeous heart wreath over at Crafty Sisters.
Well she's at it again and was kind enough to send me some pictures!

Seriously...could this be any more beautiful?
I was in complete awe!
This cool HoHoHo was actually all one piece of wood.
Connie saw the idea in a magazine and brought it to me.
I even put keyholes in the back so this one can hang up on a wall.
Doesn't Connie's Joy just make you happy?
Next up is Connie's Daughter's work!
These letters we did in the same font as my Fall letters.
I just love all the decorations and do-dads she put on here.  Love it!
Last but not least are the baby letters she did up for her little girl's room!
I have to admit the font with these letters is still one of my all time fav's!
Great job Girls!  I am so impressed!
I need to come pick your brains for some decorating ideas!
Thanks so much for sending these in and sharing them with us!

I have a couple of projects up my sleeve that hopefully I'll get done this week and post about.
Last year I had so much fun cutting out some projects for some of my neighborhood friends. 
They have their oldest children getting married and they needed some family keepsakes they had made several years ago copied so each "new" family member was included in their celebrations.
I have to admit this part of my job I really enjoy!
I love seeing and learning about the fun things you do with your families!
So there's a silly bunny I cut out last year that's
just screaming for a coat of paint and some ribbon....
