SO. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of John and Sherry P on younghouselove.com. LOVE those kids (PS - they have a new house to prettify!! Yippee!!!!!). Sometimes, I peruse their "Link Love" section. One of those times, I discovered a little blog called Bower Power. Katie B is a serious crafter. (And stinkin' adorable to boot.) She's got me all kinds of excited for craft-makin'.
One craft in particular is this interesting little number about cone tree decorations. Yeah, I know - it's a little late (or early), but I can totally think about Christmas 2011 in February. Totally.
Back in early January, we went to the Home Depot and zipped through the Christmas clearance area. I found three bags of HEAVILY-scented pine cones. What don't I have in my cone tree collection? One made out of pine cones. So, I decided to take a Miller Lite case (classy, I know!) and turn it into a cone tree using pine cones.
Um, I haven't actually finished it yet, so I'm going to have to keep you updated on this one. For now, click on that link and look at the three trees that Katie B made for this Christmas (you can click the links within the one page to get to the other two.).
Also, I stumbled upon another blogger's post about making art out of TOILET PAPER ROLLS. Love it. Using something that just gets pitched or recycled and turning it into a craft or neat piece of art is great. Again, my little craft is unfinished, but I can't wait to do it. I'm making the first one for my seester. I haven't quite decided what formation the little sucker will take on, but I'm getting escited. Stay tuned!!
