Done Me Some Creating!

Good Evening my friends! I been doing some creating these past few weeks. It seems I am into altering items more than my sewing lately. The sewing uses so much of my energy, it is much easier to set at my craft table and work on a project. I went shopping at AC Moore and bought some of their little one dollar birdhouses. I used scrap book paper, glitter and modge podge, and hot glue to alter these items. The embellishments I had in my stash already. I will use these somewhere in my spring decorating vignettes. My general time for decorating for spring is the first week in March. I have been admiring all the spring decorating in blog land. I have gleaned so many ideas. It amazes me how talented people are in blog land. Hope you enjoy my little houses.

My Girly Piece of Heaven

Good Evening my blogging friend! As most of you know my house is more traditional style than anything else. I do have three rooms in my home that is girly. One is the upstairs bath, I will share that with you at a later date. The guest room is also very feminine. Tonight I wanted to share my little girly piece of heaven. The photos are of the loft area upstairs. My craft room is located to the right of the loft just as you come up the stairs. The bathroom is to the left. We have two storage areas up there as well. One is a huge unfinished room that is meant to be a bonus room. Some day we intend to make it just that bonus room/guest room. There is a smaller storage room up there as well. I need to get iso into both rooms and get rid of some major junk. It is just so easy to put stuff in those rooms.You know out of sight out of mind. Well anyway after saying all that. I hope you enjoy the photos of my girly girl room. I painted and glittered l little birdhouse. I used a wooden dowl and made to platform out of styro foam. I painted a canvas pink and found an image on the internet and printed. I attached the print to card stock to it more sturdy. I then attached the card stock and print to the canvas. I put some Wild Orchid Craft rose trim around the edge of the print e to frame it out. I added the rest of the flowers and bows and pearls to make it more girly. If you recognize your print, let me know I will give you credit. I printed it off a free graphics site.
