~here we go again~

Sigh!  We're expecting a major snowstorm/blizzard/nor'easter tonight.  Just when I thought winter was over, Mother Nature throws me a curve ball.
School is closed tomorrow, so my boys will be home.  Luckily, I did manage to get in a few craft projects last week.  Hard to tell but this is an Easter book stack.
I also dressed up these faux dollar store plants by placing them in bunny peat pots.  I have them displayed on my Antique Farmhouse scale.
How cute are these candy jars?  They're actually upcycled food jars.
I used the shipping tape transfer method to get my images on the front of each jar, and filled them with some Easter chocolates.
Surprisingly, we still have a lot of the candy left.  After tomorrow though that could all change...

~religious frames~

I'm sooooo ready for spring.  I don't know about you, but I feel like winter has zapped my motivation.  Most days I sit down to craft and I got nothing.  The most I've been able to eek out are these sweet religious frames.
I used two petite frames and these beautiful religious images.  Both are available in my Etsy.
I also did a copycat pillow from one I saw in Country Living magazine.  I think the cross should be bigger so I'm probably going to redo it.

And that's it.  I have a million ideas floating around in my mind, but I can't seem to get the nudge I need to get moving on them. Hopefully warmer weather is right around the corner as I have a ton of painting projects I want to get started on.
