I give up!

On getting a good picture of this project 🙂  Sorry.  I’ve been stressing about it for a week, and it just isn’t a great picture, but I hope you’ll still appreciate that it’s a cute project!

Silhouettes are a tad popular right now, and I thought about this one night and decided that I’d do this project to add a little something to my Easter decor.  I like how they turned out, but I did manage to buy two out of three frames with no built in stand and I have to do something about that.  What a dork!

I searched the web for pictures that I could trace in my Create and Cut software.  Cut the chicks out in two different sizes and flipped one.  I used mostly scraps of paper for everything else.  Clouds were cut freehand and all the inking was done with a sponge for an antique sort of effect.  I hot-glued the goodies to the outside of the frames because I like that look.  I also chose three different frame styles to make it have that eclectic look.  (They are all white, not that you can tell from this awful picture).

Anyway, thanks for looking!  I hope you’re having a good time getting your house ready for spring!

Busy, but still here!

I feel bad when I go a little while without crafting and have nothing new to post.  This time, however, I have actually been crafting a lot, but it’s either stuff that I can’t share yet, or it’s stuff that’s keeping me so busy that I’m not posting like I should.  Sorry about that!
Today I had a little time so I decided to take the stuff I bought for a new spring wreath and glue it together 🙂  I made us a new wreath for the front door last year, but a little bird decided that it would be the perfect place to build a nest.  I had to start over this year!
So…here it is!

 You may have noticed that I have a thing for orange right now.  I liked the spring bunch of flowers with the orange in it, and I already had the ribbon from Costco, so that’s what I went for.  Last year’s wreath was pink and white.  I guess we’ll see which color combo the birds like more.

My flowers are still alive by the front door too!  That’s pretty nice considering that I planted them in October or November.
I’ll be back soon with more projects that I can share 😀
