Spring Is Here........

Hey there girls..

I'm a bit late in getting around to acknowledging the arrival of Spring, but I'm here now.  I guess beings the weather has been so wonderful here in Minnesota, it had felt like Spring for so long that it's hard to believe it didn't officially arrive till this week.

I haven't been up to much lately so haven't had much to share.  I just realized though that I never showed that third item that I had earlier told I would show you.  It was another crafty thing I made for a girlfriend of mine of her birthday.

In addition to the altered spool and altered bingo card I made for her, I also made this little altered birdhouse for her.

I used some newer scrapbook papers in the prettiest and shabbiest of colors and I think it turned out very sweet.  And, my friend loved it, so I was very happy about that.

I'll definately be making more of these in the future.  I'll create a little town full of charming little birdhouses.

Well, time for me to head off to work.  I'll be back again soon so show you the latest projects I've been working on.  Just waiting for the sunshine to return so I can get some decent pictures.

Until then, enjoy your days!!

Pretty Trims And A Big Mess....

Hey there girls..

The weekend is upon us and I am so glad.  It's going to be a gorgeous day here in the Minneapolis area with sunny skies and temps around 60 degrees.  Crazy for mid-March for sure, but I am definitely not going to complain about this kind of weather.

Something else that is gorgeous is my vintage sewing box drawer full of pretty trims that I've been collecting to use in my crafting projects.   Aren't they pretty?

While they may be, the reality of my crafting endeavors usually leaves my crafting table looking like this..

I should be embarrassed to show this picture, but I think all of you crafters out there probably live with the same kind of mess so I'm not going to feel guilty over it.  One has to make a mess to create something pretty.

Well, I'm off to enjoy the day, hopefully with a stop at Archiver's scrapbook store to check and see if they may have any pretty new scrapbooking papers just waiting for me to bring them home to add to my mess of crafting stuff.

See you soon!!

My New Rubber Dress Form Stamp...

Hi Girls..

I recently added another beautiful dress form rubber stamp to my collection.  I just couldn't pass this one up.

I purchased this from Cerri who has one of the best online shops for crafters like me who are looking for scrappy kind of stuff.  Please check out Cerri's shop The Litte Pink Studio  to see all of the wonderful goodies she has for sale. 

I have to say, I've become a frequent shopper at The Little Pink Studio shop.  You won't be disappointed with the products or with the quick service that Cerri provides.
