Flower hanging-ThermOWeb

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today :)  For my spring project I found these super cool flower lamps on pinterest and decided to attempt to make my own.  I was a bit nervous about having fabric so close to a bulb so mine is just created around a burned out light bulb.  Yeah hoo recycling at the same time.

Here is what I came up with.

Step 6:
for the last step tie bows on each side with a loop in the middle to hang.
I know mine is not as fancy as the pinterest picture but my daughter loves it and I think they would be adorable for a baby shower or nursery.  Thank you so much for stopping by today, make sure you check back for more wonderful projects from this fantastic team.

Happy Birthday banner/ May Arts

Do you ever have craft dreams?  Where you wake up with a picture of something in your dreams and you can't get it out of your head so you just have to make it.  Well that is how this beauty was born.  I'm pretty sure it stemmed from the pictures of the beautiful new 3" Tulle and just went wild from there.  If you want the directions make sure you stop by the May Arts blog and make one for yourself :)

Here is a close up of the fluffy tulle.

Bloom Canvas-Ruby Rock-It

 Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share my first Ruby Rock-it post :)  So exciting!!  I was so surprised to receive some wonderful flowers from Ruby Rock-It, I didn't realize they had flowers.  So my spring project is all about the Ruby-Rock-It flowers.

If you don't have the correct shade of flower just dye, mist or paint the white flowers to the color you are looking for.  The red, orange and green flowers were colored.  Here is a close up.

I didn't want to use my own handwriting but my daughter insisted, she said that with writing that quote it should be in my own handwriting because it doesn't have to be perfect :)  Smart kid.  I hope you have enjoyed my first project here today, thanks for stopping by.
Ruby Rock-it supplies used:

Other products used:
H20's, mists
May Arts-ribbon, leaves, wired pearls

Score Pad-Curtsey Boutique

Game Night Score Pad
Curtsey Boutique Designer
Jenifer Cowles

We don't watch a lot of TV at our house but we do play a lot of games and we are always savaging around for some scratch paper to keep score on.  

When I finished up with a big project I noticed that I had a bunch of perfect sized papers for a Score Pad.  I quickly bound it all together and put this fun cover on it and now we are ready to go.  

Now playing games is even more fun and the kids fight over who gets to keep score.
