Bee Happy =)

So these little critters and the sign below inspired me to make something a bit different then my normal designs.  Aren’t they fun?

Those cute little metal bee’s and that fun little sign had sunflowers written all over it.  So I played around with it until I had it arranged just right.  This wreath screams summer! It is so fun and bright!  Makes me happy just looking at it.  I sure hope you all like it.

It also inspired me to create a new header for my shop and blog.

Yellow and Summer just seems to go together.   I would love to hear what inspired all you this week.  =)

Until next time have a fabulous week!

Sugar Plum Festival

Yesterday I went to the Sugar Plum Festival arts and crafts show like I have for probably 17 years.  They have it in many locations throughout the year. I usually make it to at least 3 shows per year.  You can see from the pics it was a packed house.  No elbow room to be had.  Soooo Patience is a must!

 

The Haunted House at the entrance is absolutely amazing. It’s quite detailed.  It’s windows flash and it plays spooky music.  I should have taken a video but,  I suppose the pic will have to do.  There is a witch that spins around it.  It really is a pretty spectacular sight!

I know a lot of people went there for the Halloween and Fall decor since that is basically what it was about this time of year.   I did not.  I have plenty of decor at the moment.  More than I need LOL.  I went there specifically looking for out of the ordinary things. I must say I was super excited to find so many things I could make floral arrangements in.  Yes you heard me.  I went to a craft fair looking for unique fun pretty POTS. Hidden gems hidden behind all the fall  and Halloween decor.

My finds!

I was super pleased at my finds.  I fell in  love with this and have decided to keep it. I collect perfume bottles so this will fit right in with my collections.  I plan to store boring cotton balls in it =) Isn’t is just beautiful!?

My 2nd favorite find of the day was this  gold vessel.  I fell in love with the shape and the details.  I love that it sets up off the table.  Its going to be a beautiful flower arrangement in the near future.

 

I cant wait to see what I come up with for the rest of them.  Whatever I do  I will share.  Hopefully they will be stunning and unique!

In the middle of all that I was able to create a few more projects I wanted to shar for Christmas.

My Craft Side =)

 

Today I put together a slide show of my past crafting projects.  I would love to share these with you.  They include some things I designed for my mom when she wanted to redecorate her kitchen and living room.  This project took months of planning and creating but the end result was beautiful.  I had a very happy mother!  A 50th wedding Anniversary party for my In-Laws.  All the decorations were handmade and designed by me.  Between my Sister in Law and myself we were able to pull off a beautiful 50th wedding anniversary party packed full of happy memories.  Christmas ornaments for my coastal Christmas tree, gift baskets for teachers.  Lots of pretty Greeting cards for family and friends as well as miscellaneous floral projects.  I hope you enjoy the slide show.
