It was so nice waking up to Blue Sky this morning, and there was another surprise waiting for me in Dusty's Garden today. I received a beautiful spring basket a couple of years ago that had blooming bulbs of different kinds. One of them was miniature daffodils. I loved them...they were Oh so cute, and I had never seen a daffodil that small. I wondered if they would come up again if I planted them outside in the garden. Well, I am happy to say that the dark skies and rain this week helped these adorable little flowers bloom. I placed a regular size daffodil next to them in the picture so that you could see the size difference. I hope you enjoy. Welcome Spring!

A good friend of mine is constantly telling me to post more stuff....lol. Most of the time I do not take pictures of things I give away......... So here goes. I am trying to get out of the ole comfort zone here and share because this probably seems a little crazy. Stamping on eggs..... You see, my oldest daughter loves frogs and she was home from college for Easter. Anyway, I wanted to see if the resist technique could work on eggs. Guess what, it did, and how fun watching the image appear right before our eyes when we dipped the eggs in the dye. I used Versamark ink and stamped one of the frogs from the Fun Times stamp set on a white hard boiled egg, then colored them. It was a little tricky stamping on the curved surface......But how exciting. We did it!! So fun, and a great Let's Get Inky project for kids( because the ink is clear...lol).......Hope you like it.....and maybe give it a try.....

When I got home this evening, I had a CTMH delivery waiting for me on the porch. I was dying to open it up and see the goodies inside. It's 9:00...Kids are in bed....hubby is watching his favorite show, and so now it is time. Who Hoooo!!!! One of my favorite items is the Lucky Chipboard Accents on page 116 of the catalog. What a surprise they were. Not sure what I was expecting, but the generous size of the pieces and so many per bag. Wow!
this one is 4 inches wide.
This is a great value @ $4.95 and I think this rustic look will be amazing with our Lucky papers, don't you?
