Tangled

Well, after our wonderful, warm spring break we got the silly idea to head back to Indiana for the weekend. And Indiana welcomed us with typical Indiana temperatures - and we froze!!  Good thing we had the warmth of family to keep us warm! We had a great time visiting and catching up - as long as we stayed indoors!
 
While we were back we joined in celebrating my niece and nephews' birthdays. I just have to share the cake
my sister made per instructions from my niece.
Not only were they celebrating a birthday, but also the release today of Tangled on DVD. (Such a fun movie!) And notice how Sis made just enough curls to hold the 8 required candles! I hear they are also having a Tangled Spaghetti Supper tonight, probably topped off by watching the movie, of course. Too much fun!!

In Rapunzel's honor I've designed this hair brush cutter file set.


PS  If you have a Tangled fan at your house be sure to check out the fun activites Disney is sharing on their website! And if you plan to buy the DVD be sure to take adavantage of all the coupons and deals at living rich with coupons.


Happy Monday!!

Some Bunny Special

We are waiting for our youngest to come down for a visit!! Seems like forever (Christmas!) since we've seen her so we are pretty excited. The downside is she will be clearing out her room here - she's now a "real" employee (not temporary), is feeling more settled and wants more of her stuff. It will be sad to see an empty bedroom :(
Won't stay that way long though - we'll be moving the computer from the dining room to her old room. Does anyone else call their dining room the computer room? or is it just us?? LOL


Been crafting more bunnies . . .
This one has snippets of crocheted flowers

And this fellow is a soft flannel
They will show up in the store in a few days.

Make sure you are signed up and ready - the Giveaway is only a few days away.
With all the wonderful prizes the winner will be able to redecorate a room or two!!

I have designed a brand new cutter file this week! I think these would be so cute framed and embellished with bits of fabric, ribbon & buttons! I plan to do that - but time got away from me this week (again!)

Long Time No Sew

Yes, my poor sewing machine has been sorely neglected for several months. Oh, I would do an emergency repair, or stitch up a fun little prim project now and again. But I've had several projects literally "hanging around" waiting for my attention. Well, nothing like a few spring-like days and the promise of a warm spring get-away to spur me to action.
 
During an after Christmas shopping trip I was lucky enough to find some great clothing bargains. I found all three of these (new!) tops for under $3 each!
 
Being my own tailor is quite handy, since each needed "something" to get the proper fit. After re-attaching a button, shortening a hem, and nipping in a waistline I'm happy to report these purchases really are the bargains I was hoping for - Just love 'em now!
 
And, I've finally found an advantage to being "vertically challenged" - I used the hemline I cut off the knit top to fashion a coordinating headband. Do you like?

Bunnies, Bunnies Everywhere!

A special "Hi!" to all my new followers!! So glad you're here!

I've been able to get outside to work in the dirt a little this week. I'm thinking I might try putting in a strawberry patch this year- yum! It has been so nice to get out in the fresh air and enjoy nature (without a warm jacket) again!

With my thoughts on gardening I came upon this little plant while web-surfing this week

So cute! - I may try my hand at growing some of this!!
Even this seed packet is adorable!!

All that fresh air has inspired my crafting as well.
I've made these fun little Bunny Seed Treat Pockets/Seed Packets

and I've revamped my Bunny Border cutter file too!


I'm not the only one inspired to make a few bunnies. Take a look at just a few other cuties available for purchase from my teammates on Etsy!




Have you entered the PAFA Team Giveaway yet?? There's still time, hop on over to the blog for all the details!
