 Hello Friends!  I have had a little time to craft, but I can't seem to finish anything to my satisfaction.  I thought I would share what I have so far anyhow... :)

This is a file form  it's from the Poplar Street Tulips kit.  I was pleasantly surprised at how large this kit made the egg!  This is a fabulous gift package for spring time or Easter gifts.  I used some new pretty spring time paper I found at JoAnn's on sale... Although my lighting doesn't do it justice in this picture! I have GOT to set up a late night picture taking area.  But we don't really have room.  So I just tend to grab whatever and try to make it work...  Anywhoo, I tried some ribbon at first and HATED it.  Clearly I don;t have the right ribbon on hand.  So I tried the next best thing: ruffled paper!  What do you think?

This M&M's package gives you an idea of the size when cut on a 12 x 12 mat!  Wow!

I still think it needs a bow, or sparkles, or something... But I can't quite put my finger on it!!!  Any ideas crafty-bloggy-friends?  I bet you know EXACTLY what it needs.  Do share!

So here is another not quite finished project....  I made these mailboxes from too.  They are adorable, a good size and pretty sturdy!  My son stole the blue one right away.  I still haven't added any embellishments to the pink one.  

He added his own....

Who knew that all the mail box needed was some eyes?  LOL.

I think I have some ideas for the pink box.  If they turn out I will share next week. :)

I hope you have a fun & crafty weekend!  

Oh and my order from the new Close to my Heart Spring catalog will be here today!  Yipee!  I can start sharing some new projects with you from the new catalog!  Hooray!
