Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
I finished one of my nests on a spool. I've decided to mail this one as a surprise to a sweet friend. I kept it simple. I did not want to take away from the beauty and texture of the nest. I wrapped a bit of paper around the spool then added some waxy flax and a vintage button. Here's a close up of the nest on this one -
If you missed my post on how to make these, go here. It is a fun project and you probably already have the materials to make these.
I embellished a store bought card (love the Michael's $1 section for this) for her too. I love to add a personal touch to these pre-made cards. You could also use your own scrap cardstock to make cards. Pull out your bits of lace and paper, do a little stitching or just use glue, maybe even add a rubber stamp image...add your special touch. I could spend hours making these. Sometimes I do! It is great to have a stash on hand. The extra touches on these make them so much more fun to give.
I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend. We are staying close to home, and I plan to do a little creating. What about you? Any big plans? Linking up to:
