Whimsical Spring Garden Jar

Just another little jar full of packets of seeds. Again, the top is colored joint compound. I pressed the resin birdhouse, petals and tiny river rocks I collected in northern maine into the wet compound. Hanging on the side is a resin butterfly on two flowers.
This is going on my etsy. This is fun!!

My Top 10

It's time to pass on the award to some great gals. I would like to make all of you a "link" from my side bar because I really enjoy visiting you and sharing ideas. Happy Spring!

Whimsical Spring Garden Jar

I loved making these little gardening jars. They are decorated with gardening supply minitures, flowers and filled with packets of seeds. They will make an adorable gift for Easter,Mother's Day or a spring birthday. I used glass jars and spread colored sheetrock compound over the top. I was going to use my sparkly snow but since I was going to add acrylic paint, I just used the compound.
I was so excited this morning because I sold the top jar to the owner of a local shop where I find the little resin minitures, rake, ribbons ect. This second jar decorated with the hose and tools are now on my etsy. Soooo fun!!

March in Maine

A beautiful sunny, but still snowy day.


The deer and turkeys are back in our yard now that they can get to

the meal of acorns under all that snow.

Outside our kitchen window.

We have been here for 10 years and we are tapping our trees for the first

I helped the girls make a label for our first batch of syrup named after them.
BellaBrie Maple Syrup.


I went to a Creative Memories scrap on Friday. I started at 9:30a.m. and didn't get home and in bed until 1:30a.m. Crazy isn't it??? But I finished 5 lay-outs (10 pages). WooHoo!
In the heart on the right is a lock of hair tied with a bow.
