Plant stand

My daughter found this on Pinterest and wants to make she is enlisting her Dad to get the cinderblock and boards and she will paint them her own colors. How cute will this look on her back patio?!

I found these at Micheals and thought it would save her some time painting her own pots...these are so pretty and vibrant!

Thanks for being you...

A while back my sister-in-law gave me these pretty pillow boxes. She thought I could do up a cute treat for my craft show or for the shop I put them in. Well....she was right! I filled them with some Hershey kisses and tied them up with a pretty ribbon. I added a sweet sentiment and loved how they turned out. I took them into the shop yesterday and sold every one of them!
Thanks Melissa...sure do wish I had more!

Happy Easter

I love the Happy Spring set from amuse studio. 
The little chick is adorable and he makes the cutest Easter card.
The grass is the Martha Stewart punch and the flowers were from another die set I had in my stash.
The little chicks are so cute peeking out above the grass.

tea anyone?

I love making nugget treats and these would be perfect for anyone having a tea.
The die cut was from a set I got in a magazine...along with a fun stamp set.
I think I love washi tape as much as making nugget treats!
