I ` Crafting
My Sweetie is so wonderful, he not only presented me with a new car,(See it in the background? Her name is Coco) he went the extra mile and ordered me custom plates, HOW CUTE ARE THEY?
Well, the trio piled in and a crafting we went. My daughter and my neighbor Sandy went to my mothers to find a tree to craft into a masterpiece.
We hiked a bit up the hill to find the perfect Manzanita branches stripped of their natural foliage so we could create a more magnificent work of art.
We have no idea how these are going to turn out, but of course it’s the bonding and the process that really matters right?
After painting the branches white with a hint of nickel silver we wrapped little battery operated lights around the branches. Then we painted some leaves and stuck them where WE thought they should go.
Then Sandy had the brilliant idea of applying spray adhesive and silver glitter to some DEAD Hydrangea flowers from her garden. Perfect! We glued those around here and there.
Next come the bird nests. We starting with spanish moss swirled into a circle and then those clever little creatures seem to have collected things from my jewelry box.
Of course they all needed crowns because Sandy said so, I have never been into crowns, but I can play the game. Crowns it is! Too cute!
Next are the bird houses, Thank heaven for Michaels 50₵ each.Oh yeah,
while you are at it, just put anything on it!
The final touch is graphic cards decorated in lacy ruffles. This was found by Sandy while perusing The Graphic Fairy. She printed them out and decorated them up real pretty for us. Thanks friend!
This was a fun day of creativity and now I am going to clean up the studio for our next adventure. be sure to pop over to Gammy's Little House to see her creations, she just loves visitors!
