MeRMaiDS !!!

"I think every little girl's dream is to be a mermaid or to see a mermaid.
[When I was younger] I would go to the beach and cover myself in the sand.
People from different cultures and centuries
have the same idea of what mermaids are ...
so that's maybe a cool thing to think about."
Emma Roberts

“A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.”
William Butler Yeats

Thank you to Lisa Kettell of
Faerie Enchantment
for hosting such a wonderful, magical, seaside, mermaid party!

Here is a captured mermaid I made!

Here is a little Mermaid in a bottle my daughter made for me.

This is a wee little mermaid matchbox I made for a swap!

I just adore these mermaid figures!
I own a few but I would LOVE to own all of them!

Someday, I am going to own a small cottage right smack dab on the ocean.
My whole cottage will be filled with mermaids inside and right outside my door!

HaPPy EaStER !!!

I love putting out my Easter village.
I didnt get it up for the past two years.
This year I got it out and glittered the whole thing!
It took me two days.

Here is a Easter egg banner I made using my Bad Girls Feb kit.

A few eggs I fixed up, using various trims and stuff.
I love the way they turned out.

Just various decorations around my house,
some of which I have made and others

A topiary tree I made for my Mom.

Me and my Mom. Kassandra, Desi and Justice
made little Easter baskets out of peat pots.

I got the idea from Kenner Roads blog.

Here is mine.

HaPPy HaPPy ApRiL !!

Spring will be here soon, hopefully!
It's hard to say that when it 20 degrees outside and a few inches of the white stuff!
Lacrosse season has started!
Mo is playing on the Varsity team and doing quite well!

I made a few spring brooches for a swap on ATC's For All.

A baby shower card I made for my cousin.
She is expecting a baby girl July 4th!
