Winner and a Bit of “Mod Podge” Projects!

Happy Monday everyone!

Well today is the random winner announcement for the fun blog candy from the Every Day is an Occasion Spring Blog Hop! I want to thank everyone that left so many lovely comments! Wasn’t that hop so fun?!  Drum roll, please!!!


Sam from Thrive 360 Living! Congrats! 

(I will be contacting you for your mailing info shortly!) 

Now for my “mod podge” of last weekend’s projects.

First is a center piece I made for Easter.  I found the burlap table runner at Micheals and added some plastic eggs to vase of spring flowers.  Easy peasy!   We have family coming into town today for Easter so I needed to do something quick and simple.  I think this fit the bill.


Today is my little girls’ first dance recital they are doing together.  We go through the Park and Rec so the costumes requirements are super simple and fun.  I burned the midnight oil last night making my two little cupcakes into true cupcakes using my Sweet Treats Cricut Cart for the stencil.  I do have a few hot glue burns and my nose still tickles thanks to the boas!  Now my craft room is not only covered in glitter (that is just a standing situation) but feathers!


Thanks for sharing a piece of “crafts that make your nose tickle” pie with me!


A Touch of Spring!


Hello and Happy First Day of Spring!  It feels like spring here all the time, so I am hardly bursting with enthusiasm like those of you that live in the north, mid-west , back east or across the pond are probably doing after your hard long winter!

If you came from Decorate to Celebrate, then you are in the right place.  It is our Easter Theme Party inspiration challenge where you you can link up some of your amazing Easter and spring decor!


I decided to make a sideboard or mantel decor using two wooden pedestal birdhouses, plastic eggs, washi tape, glitter and craft paint!  It was super easy to do and I gave me a chance to pull out the power tools again (even though you probably don’t need to truly use them, I just love having an excuse).

It was a super easy project to put together and since time has not been my friend and I wanted to have something different as my decor this year, I was thrilled that I was able to stick it to Father Time and get a project done that was cute and quick!

I just painted the birdhouses random spring colors and then glittered the edgings.  I literally lucked out that all the different washi tape actually fit perfectly across the roof!

For the egg garland, here is how I did it!  I used the same washi tape to coordinate with the birdhouses! And I got to drill holes on the tops of each end of the eggs!
