Here is what I made to share with you today!

This cute little treat bag was given to me by Jessica. I went over to her house recently and we got to spend the day crafting together. :)  First, I added a piece of white paper and then a journaling tag. I stamped the sentiment "Hey there" and added some washi tape strips. I then stamped a little owl on a piece of paper, colored him in with my Copic markers, fussy cut him, then added him on to my project. Next, I added some ric rac and a pretty white paper doily. The last, and best layer is one of Pinque Peacock's Layered Garden Beauties. I hope you like my little bag!
Here is a close up of the embellishments that I used on the treat bag. Look at the beautiful color on that Pinque Peacock flower! That's all I have for you today. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for hopping with us!

On to my project..

Today, I have an altered wooden box to share with you. I love cute but easy projects.

I started out with just a plain wooden box that I picked up somewhere. I covered the top with patterned paper by Webster's Pages. I then colored the rim of the lid with a yellow Copic marker. Next, I covered the bottom of the box with some pretty pink checkered paper. I found a cute piece of pattered paper that already had a picnic blanket on it and thought that would be perfect for a Spring project. I stamped an owl on white card stock and colored it in with my Copic's and then fussy cut him and a kite and added them to the top of my box. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out into pieces a and attached them to the top. Lastly, I added some rhinestones and some twine. I think this box turned out cute. I hope you do, too! Here's another picture of it.

Next, you will head over to talented Jessica's Blog.

Here's the complete line up just in case you get lost along the way.

Cards to Share and Upcoming Hop Announcement

Good morning, crafty friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. My life has still be crazy lately and haven't had much time for crafting but I did finally make a couple of cards to share with you. I would also like to announce that this Friday is my Hooo's Ready For Spring Blog Hop! I do these owl themed hops every three months and they are always full of beautiful projects and inspiration. My friends are so talented. We would love it if you'd come hop along with us! Are you ready to see my cards? Here's the first one...

For this card, I started with brown card stock for the base. I then added a layer of blue card stock. The next layer is a piece of patterned paper. I then added a few pieces of washi tape to the side. The sentiment was stamped and the owl is also a stamp that I fussy cut and colored with Copic markers. I pop dotted the owl for a little dimension. That's it..a quick and easy card. On to the next card.

For this card, I started with kraft card stock. I added a few layers of patterned papers and I rounded all of the corners. The owls are a stamp by Unity and I colored in the image with Copic markers. The sentiment stamp is by K. Andrew Designs. I added a few orange gems and some twine on the side. That's all..another quick and easy card. 

I hope you like my cards today! Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate each and every one of you! Please be sure to come by on Friday for my owl hop! Have a great week!

Toilet Paper Roll Owls-Kids Craft

Good morning, crafty friends! I am so sorry I have not been posting lately. My life has been kind of turned up side down and I haven't been able to do any crafting at all. Today I want to share an easy kids craft to do with your kiddos or grandchildren. All you need is toilet paper rolls and markers. You push down the top to make the owl's ears and let them draw on them. Here are some examples that my lil' ones have made for me.

Please excuse the fuzzy picture, I took it with my phone because my camera is not here. Aren't they cute? I love to reuse/upcycle to do my part to save the earth and this is a fun little project.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you have a great day!
