"Garden in a can"

Hi everyone welcome back to my blog! I want to share with you these “Gardens in a can” that I came up with using pineapple cans that I had left over from baking pineapple upside-down cakes for a bake-sale at my kids’ school. I was about to head out to the recycle bin when I remembered a project I saw a long time ago using recycled or up-cycled cans! So a trip to the $ store, a couple of bunches of colorful flowers, a few button, left over burlap, ribbon, my trusty glue gun and voilĂ  born was a resplendent garden!!!  So I challenge you to Go Green, alter something and come back and show me what you came up with!

Altered Pincushion Teacup

Thanks for stopping by and thanks Mom for the inspiration! Altered pincushion teacup I created for CHA Winter 2012. I used this exquisite little butterfly teacup I found on one of my antiquing excursions! Then I took some luscious fabric and some batting from my stash to create the base inside. Added some flat-back pearls, handmade some stick pins, sprayed my I Am Roses with my LSG sprays in “A Little Bit of Bubbly” and adhered everything with E6000 glue. Hope to have inspired you!!!

My CHA Winter 2012 Adventure

I’m home after an amazing time in Southern California, made so many new friends and was so lucky to at last meet some amazing ladies that I have known via the internet for a while. I hadnt laughed so much and so hard in a long while! I shared a room with Bona and Arlene {and} you would think we had been friends for years. All of my fellow Lindy's Stamp Gang Design Team members that I met for the first time were impressive… Tracey the fabulous owner of Lindy’s Stamp Gang made it all possible (thank you sooo much once again). I can’t say enough what an amazing group of people!!! So stick around and enjoy all the pictures and video I brought back of our CHA Winter 2012 adventure!
