wooden collage

several years ago--think along the lines of  5-6 years ago--my friend Theresa made a collage out of discarded wooden stamp blocks. She had un-mounted her stamps and used them to make a collage. I commented on how much I liked it. Much to my delight a few weeks later I got a large flat rate box full of wooden blocks.OK, it has taken me forever to get it done .... but I love it. What do you think?

spring wreath

Spring has been so late this year. We have only had a few days of really hot weather. So I guess that I am just now posting my "spring wreath" this late is not surprising. Anyway.. taking the idea from Pintrest. Our spring porch wreath is actually a old picture frame spray painted with silver paint. The word spring from letters for $1 each at one of the box craft stores then glued to a paint stir stick and nailed to the  picture frame. The asymmetrical appearance is on purpose--so yeah it is supposed to look like that> LOL

Blakely's Baby Quilt

The day before Thanksgiving 2012 our niece, Kara, had her third baby. This time a girl. I found out the summer before that Kara loves quilts. So a baby quilt was called for.
Thus was born Blakely's ladybug baby quilt. The colors of her nursery were grey and yellow----so it didn't match, but I thought it was cute anyway. and made with love for a little one far away from me.
