Paper crafts...not this one ever again!


Ok this was one of those craft projects I should have never started! But I am patting my back because I was determined to finish it and I did. It is for sale today for $10,865.38....this is the price that I would be pleased to get..... Haha. And not a dime less!!!First of all  my  big mistake was cutting the templates out of grungeboard. You were supposed to use old cards. Why I thought this meant grungeboard is beyond me.With all the work to get holes in the side I would have had better luck with drywall. Yes I had to use an icepick. Anyway here it is...............enjoy!!! Please do not phone for orders!

Lilacs and Baptisia


Love all the things blooming in the yard. I have been drying lilacs these past couple weeks. Maybe I will make some sachets. They smell so good.

More Paper Flowers

I am not an expert on making these put I sure had fun. I used double-sided scrapbook paper and then I used some colored chalk for the edges. Of course a good coat of  Mod Podge to finish them. Now the 64,000 question...what will I do with them.??

Happy Mother's Day


Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was great. A brunch with wonderful food, homemade cards, plants,birds, and a basket full of some of my favorites. Yes one my children was brave enough to give me nail polish with beer. So I though I should really polish first and then relax with the beer. But on second thought if I drink the beer first just think of the things I might me able to "create" with that polish......the possibilities are endless!!

Flea Market Finds..

This past week-end was the Kane County Flea  Market.  What a place to browse for hours on end. I thought my legs were going to fall off. I found this black wired frame.....who knows what I will do with it. Maybe get some clips and hang up some photos. Also two more birds. It is always a fun time.

Bird Sets

I found this little set of birds at an antique shop here in my town. I love birds....
