A couple of projects

Well I have been dying to try out the Mod Podge Easter eggs that Xazmin posted a while back...so Jibbity and I got to work. We used fabric instead of paper though. She cut scraps of fabric and I used the Mod Podge. Can I just say...that stuff is even funner to pull off your fingers than elmers glue was in elementary school!!! Anyway it was fun and easy, and didn't take very long.
After that we decided to decorate a Jone's soda bottle that I swiped from Xazmin a few days ago. We Mod podged the fabric on that too, and then just decorated it up a little. Jibbity loved putting the jelly beans in. Hunter Dan was not happy when he found his stash of jelly beans were used in a craft project and then hot glued closed so they wouldn't fall out...oops! Oh well it looks cute!


The block is just a two by four cut to about 10 inches. Then painted and decorated a little, both my older girls love painting the "blocks", I use for lots of projects.

I put these in my kitchen on the window ledge. They look so cheerful and happy! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the snow is almost melted! YAY!!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful, and happy Friday! I LOVE Fridays!

Tanielle! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, leaving a sweet comment about my kitties and becoming a follower. I love your style of crafting! It is much like mine! I just eyed some plastic eggs in the grocery store yesterday to do the exact same thing, only using paper.

Beautiful colors! I love lots of color and these are so cute.

Oh, and you have a gorgeous family!
