I've been making some fun little decorated vases for a Spring bazaar I'm going to be participating in very soon.  This one has some hearts I cut with chipboard then added some decorative papers...  I found some fun little wooden tags that I stamped.  The sentiment MADE WITH LOVE is from A Muse.  I tied it around the vase with some thick twine. 

It would really make a cute little Valentines day gift, but I also thought it could be fun for Mothers day!

Pure Innocence

Just a very Clean and Simple card with a touch of paper piecing!  The seam binding is actually a dark green color, but it didn't photograph very well.  This is one of my favorite PI stamps!! I also used my new Tiny Tags from Papertrey Ink.

A trip to the beach

The kids were on Spring break this week although the weather was wet and cold! )=  We spent a few nights over at the beach house.  It's always a nice relaxing getaway.  No phones constantly ringing, no running the kids back and forth...  Just lots of family time!  We spent time at the beach, had lots of good food (yummy chowder), relaxed in the hotub, watched movies, played games...  It was a great time!!  Here are some pictures.

Silhouette Vinyl

I'm starting to use my Silhouette a little bit more!  I just love how you can use any fonts for free!  Also, love being able to pick a single image from their store for only 99cents!!   There are so many things you can add vinyl to, but I've been having fun using plates.  I've seen this saying popping up more and more and I love it! 
So TRUE!!  They sure do grow up fast!!

Butterfly wreath

I saw these cute little branch wreaths at Michaels and new I could find some kind of use for them.
I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punches and a cute little birdie and came up with this.

I found this frame at the goodwill for .99cents.   It had no glass or back, but I knew I could use it to display a little something in the middle.  This was a simple, fun and inexpensive little project!

and a little butterfly tag! (=
