The kids are invited to a pool party on Thursday for a little girl in Piper Ann’s class.
I made this apron for her with a felt cupcake on it.
I love the sprinkles.
Thanks for stopping by!
I’m not really sure what to call what I’m giving away. Its a wooden block that you can hang on the wall with a felt sunflower on it. The center of the sunflower has french knot “seeds” and is stuffed with some batting for a little more 3-D action.
To be eligible to win this, leave me a comment and let me know what you think I should call this sort of thing! I will leave the contest open until May 31st at 8:30 pm cst. I will draw numbers at random.
Also all purchasers from my etsy store between now and May 31st will be entered in a drawing to win this “thing.” I am offering free shipping to all participants of Giveaway Day. This includes bloggers and commenters. Just let me know at check out and I’ll refund the shipping.
Tomorrow is Piper Ann’s last day of school and Nathan’s is on Wednesday.
This is what I made the teachers to thank them for teaching my kids.
I’m also giving a similar one of these away for Giveaway Day. I will put up the post tomorrow, even though Giveaway Day doesn’t start until Wednesday morning, the 27th.
Here is a sneak peak at what I’m giving away…
We’ve got two giant oak trees in our backyard that provide us with the much appreciated shade.
However, it doesn’t allow for much creativity in the gardening department. Anything that requires full sun will not survive on the deck. Most annuals that you’d put in a planter require full sun.
Some advice when doing some container gardening is having something that gives height, something that drapes along the side of the pot, and something to fill in the middle.
Here’s what I have for some containers this year…
I decided to go with purple green and white for the containers on the deck this year.
I’ve got some Dracaena Spikes for height, purple Impatiens for filler, and Alyssum and Purple Heart for some draping down the side.
I’ll keep you updated as to how it fills out.
I got this medicine cabinet from Goodwill for $9. I decided that it would be really cool decoupaged in some great paper.
My biggest challenge was creating a template for the doors.
I took lipstick and drew around the edges of the doors.
I then put it on a piece of paper and rubbed it along the edges.
The lipstick was transferred to the paper. Then I just cut it out!
Here’s the finished product.
Now I just have to redecorate my whole bathroom around the new cabinet. I’ll keep you updated on that!
