Lets make something pretty today

I picked up some cute Bethany Lowe easter goodies for me and some for the shop, I just love the vintage style and the cute little old graphics on the front of this crepe wrapped basket! How could I ever pack this away.Went to Goodwill yesterday and found these pretty old earrings , a couple stones are missing but I don't care there so pretty!
I have had a dry spell in my creating lately ,what do you do to get inspired? I bought two rolls of old ribbon the kind that has paper between each piece around the roll. I cut ribbon like pieces and decorated them into pretty prize ribbons .

And with the help of a cute little Easter kit I bought on etsy from Julie Collings. I made two cute little easter baskets .Oh there so cute! My little Gracie was especially fond of the little chicks, she wanted them all so I gave her one and hid the rest.

And the week wouldn't be complete with out some fresh flowers for us to enjoy! I buy them weekly now, the house just feels more pretty with a lovely bouquet! One of these days I would like to create a floral design tutorial for you. These flowers sure make me miss the working atthe flower shop.

Anyways my studio looks like a tornado hit so I am going to try to clean it up today. Wish me luck I may just get lost in there! xo andrea

The flowers are so pretty. I'm thinking of buying fresh flowers for my home too! Spring is upon me (my favorite time of year) and I can't appreciate it because I'm knee deep in projects. Your post is refreshing.

That cup is sooo cute! And who would blame little Gracie for wanting all those chickens? I'm on the run too, have to clean up my studio too and I want to schedule a collection post for tomorrow. Talk to ya later!

Your blog is so lovely! I'm glad to have found it. I love all your projects. I was tempted to buy some of Julie's little Easter cup baskets too. They are adorable. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Seems like your creative dry spell is over! Those prize ribbons are too cute and the little chickies are adorable.
Good luck with the craft room. I have been there too.

Beautiful flowers - and lovely little Easter goodies!

My fabulous trunk/storage case arrived! THANK YOU! It's just wonderful - and fits in perfectly with the other storage boxes in my studio. I'm not sure what's going to go into it yet - but it will be a huge help when I decide. Again, thanks so much - I consider myself very very lucky!


Hi Andrea,
Your baskets are so sweet and your eggs also!
Beautiful flowers.

There is nothing like new 'old' supplies to get you going again, is there?
