My Bonnie Bunny punch needle kit comes with a small painted egg for the bunny to carry in his basket. To make the eggs, I start with glittery styrofoam eggs from the dollar store and paint them to create primitive, speckled eggs.
I realized this morning that I still had my treenware bowl filled with all kinds of summer punch needle bowl fillers. And here it is already the 11th of September! I went through my bowl fillers to find ones that are fall looking but not spooky. (I will save those to add in October.) I […]
My husband was cleaning out the garage this week when he came across a box of old hand saws. He figured he must have gotten them at an auction, but he couldn’t remember what he was saving them for. Since Pinterest is my go-to place for inspiration, I did a quick search to see what […]
