Happy Spring

Posted by Picasa

Happy Spring! I think here in Texas we skipped Spring and went right into summer. We have already had temps in the 90's here. All the trees have already lost there blooms and leafed out. I have been doing a lot of yard work, getting ready to plant veggies, and spring cleaning. The pretty weather inspired this card. Hope your day is filled with spring flowers and warm weather!

I Heart Eggs

I have been waiting forever for this! Ever since I got chickens I have been wanting to offer pretty blown eggs in my shop. Well finally all my chickens are laying eggs. When deciding what breeds of chickens to get I chose them by there eggs. Yes I love eggs that much! I wanted a variety of colors and shades. I love to decorate them and decorate with them! Of course this is the perfect time of year to do so. But, I decorate with mine year around. Not only did I want the perfect egg colors but the perfect little egg carton. I finally found it. Its just so cute and just right to decorate. Did you know you can stamps eggs? You can also use scrapbook rubons on them. And of course you can cover them in glitter, paint them, bling them up, and pile them into pretty, vintage bowls. I'm so excited to be able to share them with you! You can find them here.
