Spring has Sprung...or something like that

Boy am I glad Spring is finally here!  We've had a pretty rough winter, lots of snow and ice and I'm over it.  So here’s a few Spring and Easter crafty thingies to help get us over winter.

I made a couple of garlands out of some foam bunnies and chicks that I picked up at Target in the $1 bin.  I mean really—super simple. For the bunnies, I did add some flower stickers to them to add a little Spring color. 

For the chicks, I had Baxter do a little finger painting on them to add some color and have something for his room.  I really like them…and hopefully I can hang on to this for the years to come.  He’s already ripped it down once and torn one of the chicks in half so we’ll see about that.  

 I also made Spring wreath. It needs a little something else, but until I figure it out, it's perfectly fine how it is. 

Once again, I'm burning through my craft stash.  The flowers are crocheted and I got them at a thrift or flea market years ago.  The bird nest was used on a diaper cake at my baby shower!  It had the ivy attached to it which I think looks great hanging from the wreath.  

So I'm going to think a bit and play around with this wreath a bit when I have the time.  It just needs a little something.  

Are you working on anything to welcome Spring?

Swap with Friends

The ever amazing Bascom made me the most wonderful piece for our recent swap.  It has a painting of my sweet Baxter and a letter “B” all stitched up on some nice fabric.

 I can’t really express how much I love this.  It represents so much more to me than just a swap piece.  It represents the friendship I have with Bascom, though we’ve never met in person. It represents the love and respect he has for my son. It means so much more.  I truly treasure it. 

Thank you friend.

Wow Six Years!

Friends, today this little artsy/craftsy blog is 6 years old!  I can’t believe it’s been that long.  I know I’ve been a bit sporadic with posting throughout the years, but I still come back here to share my crafty bits and bobs.  I’ve met some wonderful people through the blogging world and it’s so nice to be a part of a community of like-minded folks.  So keep a look out here, I may try to plan a little giveaway soon to celebrate 6 years of blogging.  As always, finding pockets of time is a little hard for me right now, but I’ll try my best!  

Thanks for a great six years and I hope to see you around for another 6 more!  

Just a few highlights of the past six years!
