Canvas Inspired Bird House

I loved watching Ashliegh of scrapsbuttonsnbows make her canvas and it has inspired me to finish a birdhouse that has been sitting on my shelf, primed and painted for a very long time. The bird house was one that I had picked up at one of the big box stores. I started out with the roof where I used the Tim Holtz Burlap Stencil  And the Deco Art Modeling Paste..something new for me to try. I enjoyed it and think I will do more …  then added a bit of Lindy's and a bit of Gilders paste...From there it was adding things from my stash and having fun with new things in the store... I just kept going and this is the result !! I now have it on my dining room table with some Easter Eggs. Great decoration and I had so much fun doing things that I had not done before… Guess I need to do the I think I can I think I can more often…

Thanks for looking and hope you find inspiration in nooks and crannies all over the place !!

NEW Petaloo!

Sorry I could not keep my eyes open any longer last nite to put these up...but I promise it was worth the wait. We do have so much fun searching for the absolute best goodies to bring you all. I hope you enjoy it all and if there is something you want and I missed it...please let us know! Sometimes I get overwhelmed looking at so many beautiful things.
Here are some of the new Petaloo items that just landed.

There are some really nice pinks to use for the Breast Cancer Awareness project that Kathryn is hosting
The black is absolutely stunning
And lets not forget the natural burlap that is so hot right now!
See all the colors that came in under "What's New"
Also see Carol's new challenge for this week over on Scrapadabadoo Crafts on FaceBook.  You can still submit a card for the previous challenge. There is no end date. So push yourself a little and see what you come up with. I think you will surprise yourself!
Have a fabulous weekend. Hope Spring is coming to a town near you ...soon!
Hugs to you all,

New Prima & Petaloo

I don't know how Prima does it but they sure do make the prettiest products.
We just got in the Princess, Something Blue, Stationers Desk and three of the Julie Nutting Metal Die and Doll Stamps: Zoe, Halie and Gracie... these are so adorable and fun to make with the sets.
I am sure Zandra will do some fun and inspiring projects with these Doll dies and stamps. We have had a fun time so far with what she has done thus far with just the stamps.
How cute is this...look at the little poodle!!

Adorable boots and pigtails
And a cute mini skirt and a "side pony".
There are some doll size tags to compliment these cuties.
The Prima Papers are so yummi- luscious and just so....Prima!
Something Blue and  Princess are soft and feminine. Besides the 12 x 12,   A4 and 6 x 6 pads they also came out with the ATC pads that have 15 designs in the 3 x 4" size. Great for accents or journal spots
 Stationer's Desk has deep tones, bold stripes and striking florals. Even if these aren't your colors you will like this collection.
Now that I have your attention...I am headed to bed ...heehee...
I will post the beautiful Petaloo flowers that just came in tomorrow. But if you want to see them now you can look in the store under "What's New"
Sweet Dreams  Lovely Ladies
