Can we make up now?

Aww friends...I had no idea how much you loved me! :) I hope that you can forgive my little April fools joke and that we can go on being friends...I, however, must tell you that I am completely pleased with myself because of it though...you see...I am the worlds worst liar and if I tried to pull off something like that to your face...well even Moses wouldn't believe me...so thank you for helping me, for ONCE in my life , pull off a silly little joke. :)...I don't know how crazy I would be without Etsy and my little blog here...
Here is what I will share with you today....above are my little seeds beginning to sprout...did you know that if you start seeds in egg shells that it is like instant fertilizer? I love this stage of spring...so full of potential and hopefulness for what my garden will look like this year...Last night began a huge progress spurt that ended just as I sat to type this...I finished the pillow above, a purse for a custom order, cleaned two bathrooms, vacuumed the upstairs, swept the downstairs, ran to Target for dipes and other needs, finished a tutu, posted some cards, planted some flowers, put down some pebbles in my walkway, started a border around a new flower bed, hung curtains in my bedroom and lots of other little things in between...nothing like people coming over to get your butt moving right? I also got ALL of these super fun goodies from my sweet friend April...who I am not sure is talking to me again yet...glad she mailed them before April first. :) Love it ALL...peeps, little boy scrapping goods, a shell from her collection to add to mine :), bubble for Moses and of course the sweetest little bird ever...thank you April!! I heart you friend!! :)Ok, and I need an opinion here...which curtain is better...or do they both suck? One is just flat and the other is tacked up to make it a little more 3d...sorry the pics aren't better but for some reason it was super dark in there when I took the pic...neither curtain is hung on a rod but simply tacked into the wall with upholstery tacks...
And finally...my latest "I can make that..." I have been wanting to make these forever, don't ask me why but they just look like something that would be fun to make...and they were...they are horrible to photograph without a model (Moses was too short) but still cuuuute!!

I hope you are all having fun getting ready for your swap...don't forget to try to have things in the mail by April 5th or so. :)

Friends?
Pin It!

Can you tell me how to do the seeds in the eggshells? Particularly, where do you place them, how do you water and warm them?

Today's high quality napping devices lack the imagination and color infusion uncovered by your bright panoramic city scapes leveraging the exquisite collection of strong textile materials making it both a tactile and visual experience. Pizza Jaws. I needed the 'j', 'w', and 'z' to complet my use of the alphabet...

i think...maybe you need to show a closer picture of your curtains for me to really know what i think. :)

you were on a roll!! you must be back to a 9...no one at a 5 can get all that done.

is that a tutu in the bottom picture? cute pinkness.
and for real...that pillow is the best! i would never have thought to sew the "picture" to a premade pillow.
genius.

I definitely like the tucked up curtain better! Makes the windo look a little more full. What a wonderful idea to not use curtain rods but just tack them into the wall. You can't even tell. Thanks for the great idea!

Are you going to sell tutus now??? I want one!

I was wondering what you do with the eggshell filled seedlings while they are inside your home--before they are ready to be transplanted.

That pillow is adorable! And your seedlings are a definite reminder that spring is just beginning. I had no idea that putting them in egg shells was instant fertilizer! Wow!

You were on a progress spurt, I love when those happen to me. They don't happen often enough, though.

Happy day, thanks for playing along with the Spring Fluffing Game!
