Give That Girl A Saw...

...and she goes NUTS!


In the middle of March, my sister, Heather, my sis-in-law Birgitta, my other sis-in-law Angie, and her mom, locked ourselves in my house, and crafted our pants off. Angie and I have a lot of fun doing some seasonal decor crafts a couple of times a year. This was that...times 52! It took two weeks and 9 inches of saw dust in my garage to cut and prep everything for our craft blitz.

A lot of work? Yup. A lot of fun? You Bet! Worth it? Heck Yeh!!

As you peruse the pictures of our wares, please accept my humblest of apologies for the following details:

Quality of pictures. I own the world's crappiest camera, and it died. I am using my other camera, which is unbelievably worse than the first. Unbelievable. You cannot get the true colors off of these pictures.

Quantity of pictures. A tutorial on making a slide show, anyone? Anyone?

Proper Credit for pictures. Out there in Blogland, reside some extremely talented people who share their craft ideas on blogs. Thank you. I have added all of these sites to my blog. Be careful when beginning to browse. You will disappear. For a very. long. time.


So, we have home decor...











Spring...


Are those birds about the most adorable thing ever? EVER?








birthday...




Valentines...





Autumn...





Summer...





and countdown calendars.





That was just round one.
When I get the saw dust cleaned out of my nose, I will get to planning round two.

Maybe by then, there will be an intervention in place, on my behalf.
Help!

I just heard they are holding a craft-obsessed-intervention right here at my house in Wisconsin. You can get all your crafting out on location making crafts for me.

Seriously.

You are so talented. I love all of those and wish I was your sister or sister-in-law so I could come over for the craft-a-thon.
