Whew! What a week. I'm glad to be home, even though we had a fun time in Idaho. Darin's grandpa passed away last week and we headed to Idaho Falls for the funeral. He was almost 92 so although a bit of a surprise, not totally unexpected. It was fun to see all of the Warnick cousins and see family was the bonus of the trip. But it always takes a couple of days to recover after traveling with a 2 year old. So now I'm back and ready to finish up those projects I was going to do last week.
My Minds Eye has done it again with their Lush line. I love all of the colors and that they have houndstooth!
And the colors just scream spring. Although as my mom said I never thought I would see the day there was pink decorations in my house but here goes...
I started with seven pieces of paper that were about 9 inches x 12 inches and accordian folded them all.
Then I got them in the order I wanted and attached them together with double sided tape...
then the two ends to make a circle.
I hot glued a square of cardboard to stabilize it in the middle. I forgot to take a picture (I do that a lot) but I poked a hole in the middle of the cardboard and threaded a 3x44 inch piece of white fabric through to hang it with.
Then I glued on a doily and made a coffee filter pom pom to put in the center.
Then I hung it from a mirror! It has my 3 favorite patterns-polka dots, houndstooth and damask. I'm having trouble not being drawn to damask can you tell?!
