I Made a Fairy Garden!

This Spring I finally made my own little Fairy Garden! 

It's called Lavender Lookout and in my imagination Lavender the fairy sits on her little bench overlooking the ocean.

I have wanted to do a miniature garden for years, and what stopped me was that all the larger flat containers I could find were way expensive.  Finally it occurred to me that--duh--simpler is better: use what you have, Michelle!  

So I took this pot that broke when some little hooligan I know ran his bike into it--and I used retaining fences and plants to prevent erosion.  I ended up loving it so much for its uniqueness and that's what I really wanted to share with you.  Don't be stopped from pursuing that next project because you don't have the "perfect" solution!  See what you have and get creative--you might end up loving it even more than what you originally had in mind!

Random Crafty Stuff and a Free Mother's Day Printable

I am so bad about letting y'all on on my crafty life lately, and so disorganized that I just decided "to heck with it, who needs organization?"  and let's just see what I have been up to in no particular order, shall we?

Glitter Relax Jars and Ocean in a Bottle
Tutorials here and here
L-O-V-I-N-G Spring in my garden!

And I visited our local botanical gardens not once but twice because I am a major flower geek.

Oh!  Best thing ever!  Thanks to my friend Gina I discovered Silhouette Double-Sided Adhesive and I love it!  And no this is not a sponsored post, I truly do just love this product!

(1 million bonus points if you can name that show).

I helped Gina make this cute sign for her preschool class's Mother's Day event:

And!!!  And I turned it into a free printable for YOU!  Admittedly, the printable won't actually sparkle (if you can make your printer do that CALL ME RIGHT NOW)--but it is still a cute little printable for Mom's special day.  Just click on this image:

Have fun and Happy Mother's Day!
