That Big Bully - Mr. Winter

Last week we had the windows open, and was enjoying the warm sunshine but Mr. Winter came along and bullied his way into our spring and decided to throw us some cool weather along with rain.

Now I will admit, the rain was very welcomed but the colder temperatures were not. All of this means that I have spent this past week inside and what better thing to do than to spend a little time creating!

Of course, have you ever gotten this brilliant idea and then we you finished it, it wasn't anything like you had thought? In the case of this tin - in my mind's eye it was a "WOW" project, but when I got it finished, it wasn't anywhere near the "wow" factor.

Here are some magnets I made from small tiles. I stamped with Staz-on then embossed and colored in with Bic Mark-its. The bird was just stamped with Colorbox and clear embossed. I then attached a magnet to the back of each one of them. I am going to have my crafty kids do this for a Mother's Day project. Sssshhh don't tell the mom's :)

Now for a few pictures I took today. This is looking out my front door.

I thought these pictures of the moisture on my front door would make some really cool textures in Photoshop.

This is looking out my dining room window. One of the projects that is top on the list this year is to get grass growing. I wish we would have gotten some seed planted before the rain this week.

This is my week in a nutshell pretty much. Have a great weekend!
