Spring Preview

Spring teased us once again this weekend.  The weather was gorgeous, so we had a day outside playing at the park and walking around the lake watching ducks.  I would love to say that the weather is going to stay this way for awhile, but I believe more snow could be on the way before Spring actually comes.  I'll take the mild weather whenever I can get it!

Candy Swap

Heidi recently hosted a regional candy swap over on her blog and I was quick to sign up!  I was partnered with Shelley from Texas and was pretty excited to both shop for and receive some treats!  You can see the items I sent here on Shelley's blog.  Here are the goodies I recieved-
I'm not at all ashamed to admit that I ate that pecan praline right after snapping the photos!  The pecan roll didn't last very long either!

These are a few of my favorite things!

I can never have enough craft supplies!  There's something so satisfying about containers of beads and tall glasses stuffed full of pipe cleaners.  Is there any wonder why my craft room is my happy space?

Candy Crush

I saw this candy print dress and instantly felt warmer!  There's just something about it that reminds me of warmer weather!  Do you think that by creating Spring-worthy outfits it will get here sooner?!

The Crafty Doll

So the whole shop thing has been consuming a lot of my time, but it's been fun.  Things have smoothed themselves out, not to say I won't make more mistakes, but really it's going well!  I've been adding vintage items for sale here and there, but I think I really prefer selling things I've made.  I've been crafting more than ever and I think it's quite surprising that people seem to really like my silly little creations.  While browsing a favorite supply shop recently, I found these lovely plastic hair combs.  They come in great colors and are perfect for adorning with all sorts of things!  I've sold all but a few and have already ordered more!  I could never figure out how to get these damn things to stay in my hair, but luckily there are quite a few of you who actually can use them!  I promise this isn't turning into a blog to pimp my creations or my shop, but this is what's been keeping me busy and that's what I tend to share.  Hope you enjoy looking!

Funny Bunnies

I'm sure I've mentioned this before but Easter is my absolute favorite holiday, so it's no surprise that I love bunnies.  I've possibly made everyone aware that I am in fact one of those crazy doll obsessed ladies too.  Imagine how excited I was when my worlds collided and I found the most adorable little plastic bunny doll faces!  I spent Saturday afternoon adding ears and decorations to my little bunnies.  I'll be selling these cuties in my shop this week, but it really took everything I had not to keep them all to myself!

Snow Snow Go Away!!

Anyone remember this song?  I'm not at all ashamed to say that I was maybe a tad bit obsessed with this one.  It's catchy and it reminds me of warmer days.  I need that today, another stinking snow day!  Happy Monday, all!
