Flower journal

I had fun make this Flower Journal for myself.  I plan on putting flower seed packages inside of it.
Papers and Stickers are both from Robin Nest Scrapbook Company.  I used a Die cut for the title.  I used a Portfolio template from Green Sneakers 
  Some of these flowers are from Prima, but I did add some more to them using Robin Nest paper and Dew Drops.  Can't live without my Dew Drops 

  See how just adding a few things can dress up a purchased flower.

Home deco

This girl loves to play with Power tools.  My Proxxon tools are simple the best for crafting..  They are light weight, small and easy to store.  This is a prefect for a small studio like mine.  


Started with my Delta Sander - sanded my shutters to get them ready for paint

After paint - I put my shutter into my Precision Vise FMS 75

Now to drill and screw my hangers on the Shutter with my Precision Rotary Tool FBS 115/E

Now the fun part - 
Started by placing the Stencib Leave stencil on my shutters
Using my Pan Pastels I added color to the shutters - helpful hint, first add clear gesso on first then add your Pan Pastels - I add three color - two shades of green and a little blue....
Seal project when done.  

Thanks again for stopping by

Hairy Paints

I love when spring get here and you can play outside in the dirt.  Today I took a old pair of paints and made this

super easy, I started by filling the legs of the paints with leaves from the forest floor (it's what I had)  then, I placed a wire basket on the top part of the paints and wire it into the paints.  Added some moss and soil, then added my Feather Grass I purchased at Home Depot.  I add a bar to help support the whole then.

Thanks for stopping by
