Bryon's Sleigh

Bryon finally got done building the sleigh. He had problems trying to bend the wood for the runners so finally cut them out instead. I don't have any where else to sit his BIG things while it's cold outside for good pictures.

Kitchen Picture

When we moved into this house I loved that I had the old chimney to hang my hummingbird picture on. But as Bryon keeps adding shelves and cabinets the hummingbirds were out of place. I took the picture out of the frame and covered it with fabric. Cut out the word EAT and the fork and spoon I got from The Graphic Fairy. Then I painted the frame with my free sample of Valspar paint. The color is Boxwood. LOVE it. Excuse the reflection of a picture on the other wall.

St. Patty's Day Wreath

I updated my St. Patty's day wreath with some ribbon and repainted the shamrocks and distressed the edges. Of course I forgot to take before pics. I like the way it turned out, but I think the shamrocks need a little something. I just don't know what. Any suggestions?

HOO Are You?

I am joining in the fun over at Nightowl Crafting. What a great idea! Here are this weeks questions.

1. What did you get/give for Valentine's Day?
My honey made me a jewelry box and a little heart with a tiny little rose on it. I made him a batch of butter mints and a heart candy box.

2. Do you have a vacation planned in the next couple of months or in the summer?
We do alot of camping in the summer. I hope to be able to make it to PA to meet our newest granddaughter. She is already 6 months old :(

3. What is the one thing you do to pamper yourself?
Go to a salon to get my hair cut. I usually chop it off and dye it myself.

4.What sparks your interest to other people's blogs?
Tutorials. I started out following paper crafting blogs, then started finding all the other awesome crafts and repurposing blogs. Now I'm into sewing and look for tutes and patterns on sewing blogs.

5. What kind of mood are you in today?
I've been in a crafty mood. I found a St. Patricks day wreath in one of our totes and tore it apart and re-did it. Now it's 5 PM and I'm getting tired. I didn't get my nap today:)

Northern Flicker

There is no crafting going on here until I get my package from Joann's. So I thought I would show you a couple of pics of my Valentine's visitor. I can't believe I got him flying. I love birdwatching.
