Hello blog friends! Thanks for stopping by today... it's beautiful here in Minnesota. A little bit cooler than the 80 degrees that we had a little over a week or ago, but things are greening up and the birds are chirping away. They're busy in the bird houses around our yard... fluffing up their nests and getting ready for new life.
Did I tell you that a new little life has come into our family recently? Our sweet baby Riley David arrived on March 8 and he is so adorable and precious. I always like spring babies because they seem to just go along with what nature has happening. All of my children are spring babies, so maybe I am biased ;-)
Here is our sweet angel...
Isn't he amazing?!?! :-)
I have a project to share today that I made for the GlueArts blog. This weeks theme is Spring Fabric crafts. Many of the Gluegirls actually "sewed" their fabric projects, but I opted for something quicker. Not because I can't sew... I love to sew... but because I am so behind and so busy right now.
I wrapped a big paper mache egg with strips of muslin fabric and lightly sprayed on a color mist... actually I added 2 colors, one a pale green and the other a golden color to add some distressing.
I wrapped the egg in some old cotton lace and tied a bow at the top then hot glued some embellishments around the bow.
Details will be on the Glue Arts blog on the 30th. Remember to go to their blog to leave a comment for a chance to win something. They are always giving away their adhesives and many times even other scrapbooking supplies.
Now for another awesome giveaway! Mikarose is giving away a $50 gift certificate to one of my lucky blog readers.. They have beautiful clothes and a new accessory line of necklaces that my daughter in law would love to wear. I need to send her there to shop!
