I’ve found my Easter craft project! 

I had been thinking for about 2 weeks now, about how I’ll bring in some Easter mood to The Pad, and I chanced upon some gorgeous yarn wreaths on Etsy!  I adore them and can’t wait to have a go at creating my own Easter yarn wreath.

Here are some which really inspired me.  Aren’t they pretty? =)

Loving this arrangement by small stump + studio choo. It’s the perfect little perk-me-up on a rainy day.  Feeling so summery sun-shiney just looking at it. =)

I’ve found an awesome website that I must MUST share!

storage glee

Storage | Glee is a collection of ideas for storage solutions/designs and it is chockful of wonderfulness!  Some are awesomely “why haven’t I thought of that?“, others are “just pretty to look at“, and then there are those that are “seriously brilliant” ideas.

And of course, those that I can’t wait to try out for the new home.

Love, love, LOVE!

Yesterday’s post reminded me that I have a whole lot of ribbon organizing to do. *groan*

What do trains have to do with Easter?  Well, we’ll find out this weekend, when I complete the project. Hee.

Here are other fabrics I got today.

They’re Japanese cotton for some new stuff for my Etsy shop.

Just looking at them makes me happy.  Heehee.

valentine’s tree

I know valentine’s is over, but this is easy easy idea was just too good to pass up on being blogged about!

Mr C and I chanced upon this tree decoration put up for Valentine’s at one of the marina clubs. 

pretty pretty pink-white tree

pretty pretty pink-white tree

It’s simply tree branches (probably recycled from Chinese New Year decorations) painted pink.  And then some creative person used a facial cotton square, twisted the end of it and stuck it on the branches, creating a white cotton “bud” on the tree.  Repeat with many more facial cotton squares and you have a whole tree looking somewhat pussy-willow-like, but not quite.

white cotton "buds"

Really cool and it looked really pretty in the white lobby of the club. =)
