“Egg”cellent: DIY (Saveable) Dyed Eggs

Well guys, St. Patrick’s Day is over. And I have to say that Hubs and I didn’t do anything especially festive to celebrate yesterday, which is okay, because we still had a good day. And now that the green-filled holiday is over, I’m moving on to the next stage of the year’s mantle decorations: Easter […]

Tree Tutorial…Stacked Version

Ok, so I know it’s past Christmas and you probably don’t want to make Christmas tree decorations anymore, but I said I’d post these, and I am going to, dangit! So, use these trees to decorate for January, or have a tree-themed party sometime in the next month as an excuse to make these cute […]

Paper Tree Tutorial #1 (Folder Version)

Just to let you know, I had a nice blog post all ready to give you yesterday and WordPress had a slight hiccup and somehow it all got lost. (So much for the automatic saving, right?) Anyway, I apologize for the delay, but here’s what I was going to share with you yesterday but didn’t […]
