Blister pack

Just Stuff

I’ve been organizing pictures and came across some odds and ends I’d like to share.

Here’s a fun card I made for my youngest grandson.  I can’t remember exactly where I got the blister package (I save all kinds–HUGE FUN–KIDS LOVE IT TOO!).  It was a little tough squeezing in all of the stuff . . .

This is a sweet wedding cake I decorated a few years ago for our daughter’s backyard wedding.  We just ordered a plain frosted cake from the grocery store bakery and I added the decorations.  The little bride and groom were just a few dollars from a craft store.  I just wish I would have been brave enough to use fresh flowers.  There are so many gorgeous ones on Pinterest!  Check out my wedding boards: Really Pretty Weddings  and Really Pretty Weddings 2.

Earlier this year I helped my pre-school Sunday School kids make these super cool capes from old tee shirts.  Simply cut off the entire front (leaving the neck area).  They absolutely loved it.  The crosses were made out of duct tape which they adore.  I’m sure I got this idea from a Pinterest pin!

These two photos are of my laundry room.  I painted it a few months ago.  I was excited about using a rich dark brown but I had to use lots of self-discipline not to do more than one wall.  The creamy white and the floral curtains are the perfect balance to keep it fresh, don’t you think?

And here’s the view looking from my laundry room into my kitchen.  It’s so homey I’m gonna never leave!

I love this picture.  It was a dark and windy night!

Our church has a ladies’ luncheon every spring, featuring a table decorating competition.  Yay!  I won I won I won!

Staple Up These Blisters for Oozy Fun!

Here’s a shocker. I’ve actually made few cards lately. I had been saving some odds and ends of used packaging blister packs for a quite a while and finally found time to use them creatively.  Unfortunately, the photos don’t quite show off the shiny blister packs stapled to the cards, but I hope you get the idea.  I did cheat on the last one. There is no blister pack.  I simply wrapped yarn around the flower stems.  I am incredibly lazy.  You can be too.
