Spring has Sprung

I love's not super hot and we still have cool mornings. The outdoors seem so alive and vivid - like the world is Refreshing itself. The roses are in full bloom and the birds are chirping - oh my how the birds are chirping...they seem to have found a nice perch right on our chimney which echoes into our living room {all day}

I am slowly refreshing my home as well. We started our kitchen renovations last Tuesday and are partially done. I am creating some cute little "bits" for my Spring mantel and getting my front porch ready to embrace the Spring weather.
Like this sweet birdhouse...just used one of the $1 bird houses from Joanne's painted it up and added that sugar candy glitter to the whole house - makes it look yummy kind of like candy dontch'a think?.

 Added some posie flowers and a sweet little egg...Makes for a sweet little decoration for my mantel

The best part of this project is that other then the birdhouse I had the paints and the embellishments on hand. Makes for a cheap little decoration. You could get as elaborate as you like in decorating the bird house. Imagine the possibilities!
I am linking this up to the parties above.
Hope you are feeling Spring where ever you at...Happy Crafting

Tags-Day 48

I consider myself to be quite crafty and do love crafting for the specific holidays but notice that I make "HOLIDAY" inspired goodies but do NOTHING with those things, so like I mentioned before I want to be more present and give more "HANDMADE" away and use as gifts. That is the scenario I am hoping to live by from now on.
I am beginning with these fun tags.
I have a secret love for tags. I buy the blank manila tags buy the case and if I am not coffee dying them I am stamping on them. I use them as price tags, as labels and as gift tags.
I mean really they are so versatile and something about a blank slate - that creamy manila color - yummy.
Here is the newest set of tags I made for the upcoming St. Pattys Day Holiday

 Here is another set of fun tags I made and added flowery clothespins - 

see the tags are awesome and the pins make a great & useful gift too...What's not to LOVE? I am linking these tags up to the parties above....

Have a great crafty week.
