Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

I don’t know if was the sketch, my paper choice, the Easter theme (you know me, I’m never one to be that much ahead of the game) or the fact that I had to first clean a spot in my craft room just to get started. Ugh! As I gave my crafting table a clearing, I came upon some shimmery chick paper on top of a pile of I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-this…

    My First Color Throwdown Challenge — Yellow, Green & Aqua

    Here’s a super simple little card I whipped up this morning for the newest Color Throwdown Challenge. This is a first for me, but one of the awesome paper crafters I follow is a guest designer this month so I thought I would give this challenge a go. This week’s inspiration colors are green, yellow and aqua and a quick survey of my 6×6 paper stash netted me just the right color combination with The Basics Stack by DCWV. This stack is full of geometric patterns in loads of basic colors, so I was able to piece together a very simple design that still has texture and interest. I did create the…
