Spring Scrapbook Paper Tree
Hello fellow crafters! Tristin and I were invited to be today's featured guest blogger over at Everyday Mom Ideas! We were thrilled with this wonderful opportunity, and wanted to share with the readers over there one of our trees from the collection we're currently doing. This second tree is very similar to the first one. I'm sorry! I promise, the next ones will be more diverse. (Since this is a guest post on a different blog, and the concept is similar to the first tree.. Thanks, Julia, for having us on your blog!

Scrambled, poached, sunny side up, boiled – whatever way you can imagine them we have had them in all the many fangled ways that you can imagine! What we have never had is an invitation in an egg and this exploded our minds not even blew them.

A Tutorial: Fabulous Ric Rac Flowers » Matilda Jane Clothing Rocks Let me start out with a warning or sorry of some sort. The warning is because I have never done a Tutorial before, so I hope this is helpful and easy to follow. The sorry is for how horrible my nails look. I promise I did them after looking through these pics. WOW! I thought I would start off with a Flower, I too, just learned how to make. An Interview with: Rebecca Long I recently had the pleasure of discovering Santa Barbara, California-dwelling Rebecca Long’s shop The Rubbish Revival, where she sells a slew of decorative sea glass creations. I am smitten by Rebecca’s ombre sea glass mobiles, that are a perfect representation of the ocean’s gradients. I emailed Rebecca to find out a little bit more about her, the inspiration behind her shop, and what she enjoys about nature. Read on for an inspiring and heartfelt interview with Rebecca.

Packed - Engagement Ring The problem is...sometime you just don't have the space to hide the engagement ring. Where else would you put it? In your wallet of course.

How To Make A Stylish Photo Frame For Several Photos Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them. You can use a frame you bought or a frame you made by yourself.
