Snowflake Quilt

Snowflake Quilt
For those with lingering snow flurries here is something to keep you cozy :).

My mother saw some cute wrapping paper and decided the girls in our family needed to made a quilt that resembled it.  We all used our creative juices to make it our own.  Here is mine :)!  It only took me 10 years??

It is hard to see the detail work from a distance.  I hand stitched snow flurries around the quilt.  Each snowflake is blanket stitched onto the quilt.

Wishing you all a warm spring :).

Pudding Turkey Cups

I had to make 48 individually wrapped treats for my kids fall festival and decided to create these feathery friends.  I actually had my kids make them!  It took about 2 hours with 4 semi effective little helpers :).

I purchased 4-12 pack pudding boxes at my local grocery store for under $12 total.  I only used one piece of construction paper per colored body part (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange, and 1 brown).  It did require 92 googly eyes and some sturdy glue/tape.  If you are cheap on the adhesive your turkeys will loose their body parts which will frustrate you!  I had to re-adhere a few :).   

Helpful Hint- Stapling the three feathers together before adhering them will make them easier to work with.

This is a fun holiday craft for ages 3 and up.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Scrapbook Page Idea #4

Page Idea #4- from my Texan Owl Family Scrapbook

Have you been wondering where all the owls are hiding?  Here are some :). 

These owls were rubber stamped onto white paper.  The white rectangles were great for placing wallet sized photos.
