Spring crafts

Spring is in the air and I promise this modge podge of mess will become great and beautiful spring crafts that anyone would love to put in their house!  And in fact you can easy peasy by using things from around your home and refashioning it into something else (some people call it upcycling), I save thing like ribbons, broken frames, candlesticks, and I buy grapevine wreaths by the bulk. I use my dining room to stage most things, it is a bright and uncluttered room that if I don't finish my projects no really has to walk directly through it!   I do use things from nature like leaves and sticks. I use things like old wooden box, covered boxes, candy dishes and even margarita glasses to make nests for bunnies and birdies! I'll post finished pieces soon. Have fun and Happy Spring! *Not                 pictured here are all of my bunnies & Easter stuff. Also things needed are patience & glue gun.

Bring Nature In

I meant to file this in early February, but I had forgotten about it so here is a quick project.  Gather sticks from fallen winter branches,  arrange like flowers ( here I gather large enough hand fulls that it fit pretty snuggly in the vase. 
I like using sticks in the winter,  they add some depth and color.  If you have dogwood in your yard they are fabulous for color. Sometimes leaves are still attached! 
I simply arranged,  then wrapped a colorful tasseled rope around and that was it!
My lit niche measures 4 feet by 3 feet,  so most everything has to be somewhat large for this area.

Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel

I gave this an awesome review of 4**** my nails were hard,  shiny and chip resistant.  This is a 2 step method.  Step 1 is base and coat.  Step 2 Diamond Top Coat. 
Awesome products from Revlon I got this free from them as an @influenster badge prize!  How awesome!  I would've given this 5***** except I would have loved a darker base color.  Awesome and you should try this!
