Spring Floral

Been working on a few spring items for my Spring show next month.  I am in love with this bird nest!
In fact, I made two more!  It was so easy!  I purchased the nest at Hobby Lobby.  I put a bit of moss on top of a rusty bed spring (You can purchase these here)  I ran a rusty wire through the nest and wrapped around the spring to hold it in place.  I actually anchored it this way in a couple of places.  I wove some spring floral into the nest and hot glued a bit more moss to the top.  Throw in some eggs, add a ribbon and an stamped tag!  Voila!  A great centerpiece.  I have not listed these on Etsy, but if you are interested, leave me a comment below or email me for more info.

I really love this happy little spring basket too!  This would look great in any room to bring in that happy sunshine-y mood. 
Having spring like weather here today so maybe I will be motivated to get some more Spring items completed.  I've been neglecting my house, so I had better spend time working on it as well.  Have a great weekend!

Good bye January!

It seems incredible to me that January 2018 is nearly history.  But you know what they say.....time flies when you are having fun.....so I must really be having a blast!  I have had a really busy January, working on another pattern, new Etsy listings, and making Spring items for my show in March. 

One of the items that always sells, no matter the season, are lighted garland.
I did this one in pastels for spring, but I sell a ton of these for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and  Christmas.  Even had a special order for Valentines Day.  They are great on your mantel, swagged over a window, placed on a buffet or table, and the list goes on.  Wanna know how to make it?  Another easy, peasy lemon squeezy craft.  Just click here for the easy tutorial.  Yeah, its for a Halloween one, but it will work for any season. 

In my thrifting last week, I found a couple of great vintage items that will be listed in my Etsy shop later today.  I will be adding some more doll supplies in this Etsy shop.  Don't forget to check out my patterns too!

Well, I am off to work on those listings!  Have a great week ahead!
