Today is such a beautiful Spring day! The sun is shining, there's a brisk breeze blowing and the smells are glorious!! It makes me anxious to get outside and work in the flower beds! But before I head outside...I wanted to share these creations with you......
I had so much fun making the pillow I posted previously that I thought I'd make a couple more....One reason I enjoy making them so much is. They come together in about 30 minutes (each). That's completely finished and ready for a photograph. This material is 1.50 a yrd at Wal-mart. I love the texture of it. It's soft but crisp looking. The flowers are felt cut outs. I have a couple cans of them laying around. So, I thought using them on these pillows would be perfect. My oldest daughter loved them....I'll have to let her make one for her room. In pink of course!
I don't know about you....but I love my house to smell yummy! So, it's full of Bath and Body Works smelly goods! I bought an oil diffuser several months ago and wasn't to enthralled with it's plain jane looks. So, one day I got a brilliant idea.....I decided to decorate it. Now it matches my living room decor perfectly. This would also, make awesome gifts. I've seen a ton of different oil diffusers in all shapes and sizes. But none of them were "cute". This is the perfect way to jazz them up for a friend or relative. Who wouldn't love this decorated oil diffuser to match their decor?! :)
My mom (like most mothers) loves gifts made by her children.....This is one of her Mother's Day gifts from me. I took a 2.00 frame (Wal-mart) and added some buttons, trim, ribbon, roses and viola`....this hanging frame was born. I have to admit....I couldn't wait til Mother's Day. I had to show it to her. Needless to say, she loved it. And insisted that in itself was enough. Of course, I will be getting her something else besides the frame. I'm thinking about a gift card from HL. She's started getting into paper crafting a little bit lately.
