A Little Bit of Crafting

 After I came home from my Taiwan trip I had an intense desire to go see Ron and Misty because I wanted to compare pictures and I just wanted to talk to someone about it who has recently been there.  But, how was I suppose to leave my husband again right after I just came home?!  Well, Luke ended up having a YM's snow activity the weekend of Lily's Mid-Winter Break, so I packed up the kids and I and we drove down to Ron and Misty's.
We had a fabulous time looking at all our photos and talking about the food and the kids had a grand time playing.  Now, one of the things that usually happens when I'm around Misty is that I get inspired to do art.  One of the things I have always loved about Misty is our mutual interest in arts and crafts.  She is always doing something - hair clips, painting, sketching, jewelry, household decorations, etc.  Last Summer after seeing her sketch I started sketching again and it's been really fun.  I'll have to post pictures of that later.
Anyway, this time after I came home from her house I decided to make some spring decorations.  I headed off to Michaels and the Dollar store.  I got 2 stems of silk flowers for $1/each, a grapevine wreath for $4.50 at Michaels; and I got some foam eggs (10/Pack) and birds (2/pack) at the Dollar store.  With a little bit of hot clue and some ribbon and raffia these are what I came up with.  It only took me a total of an hour and half and it was pretty fun. :o)


  1. Awesome!! I picked up a grapevine wreath years ago, and just stick stuff in it for every season- fake flowers,stuff from the yard, etc. Love it :)

  2. Nice! You have more than your share of talents, Lady!
