Marmalade is finally feeling better and about back to his old self.. he likes to hang over my shoulder while I'm on the computer!
spring has sprung! weve had several beautiful days in a row.. things are turning green outside and my daffidils are up and the forsythia is blooming!
I feel like I havent been here if forever, though I know its been only a few days. I've been on call this weekend and have been busy besides! I did get all my easter stuff put away. Two full bins. I left a couple things out that I just wasnt ready to part with yet. My house hasnt been in its "normal" look since before halloween! I decorated for halloween, then left out just the fallish and thanksgiving type stuff and then went to christmas! After Christmas I put out All the snowmen (there wasnt room for them when christmas was out!) from the snowmen, we went to valentines .. I left valentines out for a couple weeks longer.. and then put out easter! so.... When easter got put away.. I just didnt know what to do. I found a bunch of stuff that I had stored away and played around with those things.. I must be missing a bin somewhere with summer stuff in it.. cause I didnt see it when I was sorting through things.. its not time for it yet,, but I will be wanting it in a couple months!
So, Ive posted a few pics of easter replacements! keeping in the spirit of spring.. I thought plants and flowers and nesting babies would be appropriate!
so what have I been doing? besides undecorating and putting my house back to "normal", I got caught up in making those little flower charms which you probably saw in my last post. I got a little obsessed (I know.. thats no surprise to some of you who know me in person ( brenda and bambi) and made a lot of them. I left work on Thursday night and ran to michaels to buy beads and more hardware.. and blew 35.00 dollars! then this morning I ran to rochester to joanns and spent another 30.00. Yeah, I will never ever use all that I bought.. but I couldnt help myself. It was fun! so, I made a charm bracelet and am making another one. I hung a bunch of them on a little tree. Ive made some that will be for little blythe necklaces.. they are just fun. Besides the little flowers, I also made little felted ball charms too. I tried wet felting .. very easy.. and fun to decorate afterwords!
Believe it or not.. I dont have something dancing around in my head dying for me to make it! that doesnt happen to me very often.. I'll have to go in search of some inspiration! I do have one idea for a needle punch piece, (not needle felting ) I'll talk about that another time.
So I guess thats all for now girls.. but hey! where have you all been, I've not had many comments this past week.. I missed hearing from you all! I thought maybe ya'll didnt like my flower charms or were just tired of me!
I'm off to find something warm to put on my cold little bare feet.. then I'll be back to try to catch up with all your blogs!
