Busy week

  I have been busy this week with a few projects.  I started knitting a shrug for our Emma which I hope to have done by Tuesday.  I made the Robin's egg frame from the earlier post this week.  I've made a few cards that I will post tomorrow.  Oh and I almost forgot about the London collage for Katherine.  But I have finally got around to working on my jewelry box.
  About a month ago I had taken all the jewelry out and pulled all the hardware off, but I put it aside because I had no place to paint it due to the weather.  The weather was good today and nice enough I could paint it on the deck.  I'm not finished by any means but here are a few pics for a sneaky peek at  it.

I can't wait to get the painting part done.  I'll have to make a quick run to Jo-ann's to find a pretty fabric to reline the drawers.

London calling

I made a collage of Paris for my oldest daughter at Christmas and my next oldest liked it so much that she wanted a London one.  It has taken me awhile to get one done for her.  I wanted it similar to this one.
But I wasn't feelin' a romantic/older look for the London one like I had wanted to do.  This is what I came up with.
I'm hoping daughter number 2 loves it.

A robin's nest

I found this in the Victorian Trading Co.'s catalog and needless to say I absolutely love it!
But...I don't want to pay the price plus shipping for it.  Instead I made my own version of it for about $14.00 total.  Woohoo!

Organizer from a file folder

With all the snow we have been getting there is nothing else to do but craft.  So I saw this great project quite awhile ago but haven't had the time to do it.  (Forgive me I don't know where it was I found it)  It's not totally done because I want to put a couple of notepads in it.  We can't get out of the house due to the weather... yes we are in Snowmageddon.
Here's my sweetheart snow blowing our walkway.  
So here is the organizer.  :)

the front

the back

I love it and already have put my coupons and a few receipts I need to keep in it.

Easy Valentine's

This is nice and easy especially if you have little ones.  My girls (5 and 6) stamped the hearts and punched the holes.  I made the hearts and the card on the Cricut but it would be easy enough to do without it.  I did use a little double sided tape to keep the lollipop in place.  Then just a piece of ribbon to tie it up.  

My girls signed their names on the back and we are all ready for Valentine's Day.  They are very excited to give these to their friends especially since they helped make them.
