Here's a simple project for Spring. They're also great to give as gifts. Spray paint a Starbucks Frappuccino bottle with white spray paint. Print off some words in a font that you like. I printed off sprout, bloom and grow.

Dollar Store I used to teach Jr. High. Loved it, but struggled smiling sincerely during teacher appreciation week after opening up my 32nd ‘#1 teacher mug’. Okay maybe not 32 of them, but I got my fair share of them.
There are some beautiful serving pieces cropping up around blogland, using all sorts of great materials, and I’ve been wanting to do something similar. In browsing Anthro a couple of weeks ago (I know I know, I actually went in the store – but I had a good friend on speed dial in case I succumbed to anything too crazy) I came across a serving tower made from beautiful white dishes and cups, stacked on top of each other. Now because I was in an Anthro-high-price stupor, I did not take a picture of this lovely item. And of course it is nowhere on line. This is the closest thing I could find on their site.
OK, confession: I’m on Weight-Watchers. And a major part of the program isn’t completely restricting what you eat and drink, but you DO have to watch and control your portions. This goes for wine, too.
I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying. Here, in order of appearance, are the places I referenced: paper candy instructions with pictures (this is the first place I saw this project) dogmestic with instructions and pictures photogeek pictures ugly green chair cute ladybug magnets – pictures with packaging threads at Glitter: one two three
UPDATE: This post originally ran on March 23 2011, but with summer winding down we wanted to bring it back up for some late summer inspiration! a fellow fp girl sent this to me a couple weeks back and i’ve been thinking about it ever since! i can think of a million reasons why these would be awesome… as apartment décor, as outdoor party décor, and – wouldn’t they be the best thing EVER for camping in general or at a festival? just let them sit in the sun all day, and they’ll last all night!
If interested, I answered a few interview questions with Simply Modern Mom here . And a few more questions with The Creative Connection here . (At the end of the interview with Creative Connection, there is a mention of a 2 pattern giveaway from my shop. But hurry, it closes at noon today (MST)…….eeek, sorry for such short notice.) Have you ever done any glass etching? Well, neither had I before today.
This photo transfer project is perfect for a wedding gift and can be personalized to match the newlyweds’ decor. Let’s get started, shall we? We’re going to need a tile, first of all.
I am a meal planner. I refuse to go grocery shopping without my week’s worth of meals planned out and list made. (It’s either that or wander aimlessly around the grocery store for two hours and then make ten more trips back during the week to get things I forgot.) Once I get the groceries unloaded, I usually forget what I planned for, so I put together this super easy wipe-off menu board to keep track of what’s for dinner each night!
