I Was Inspired By...

This week I was inspired by the creative maven (she uses lowercase letters for her title, so I did too).
Molly is new to blogging, just started in January.  She has posted some really great and doable tutorials and ideas.
This spring chicken wreath cracked me up--look at those legs sticking out there.
and these little scrap birdies look sewn, but aren't.
For the clothing or morning challenged, Molly sewed up outfit or hanger tags.
And her son's name done up with scrapbook paper turned out too cute!
This week these newspaper covered plastic eggs inspired me to create some of my own.  I liked that they were different--a bit down to earth and organic.

And mine.
I dry brushed a little paint on there and speckled them a bit.
So go check the creative maven out--thanks Molly for the inspiration!


  1. The spring chicken kills me! Very fun!

  2. cool beans, I mean eggs! :)
    thanks for showing me a new blog!


  3. Thanks Becky! That is so sweet of you. I love the way your eggs turned out! I have this wire chicken thing that I'm going to put in my kitchen and it needs something for the inside, I was going to do more newspaper eggs, but I thought they might not be colorful enough - this is a good idea!

  4. Thanks for sharing with us. I'm going to go visit Molly!

    Tomorrow I'm featuring a tutorial for toilet paper roll napkin rings. I'd love it if you stopped by!

  5. Gosh, instead of dry brushing paint, glimmer mist would be great to use on these! a little shabby, a little color, a little sparkle.......
    Thanks for the idea

  6. I love the garment/hanger tags! What a clever way to put some whimsy into morning madness.

  7. The scrap birdies are fun! And I think a basket of newspaper eggs should find their way to my Table!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
