Celebrations: spring flower inspiration

Today, I’m tag teaming with the lovely Kari at Ucreate to bring you some spring inspiration. Kari has some pretty floral Mother's Day ideas. And I’m showing you some different ways to display flowers.


Spring Flowers 14 aTo me, nothing says spring like fresh cut flowers. Even the tiniest vase with a single flower is an instant mood brightener. For this project, I bought inexpensive flowers to create several arrangements and had enough left over to use the odds and ends to create the floral frame above. Inside the frame I added an inspirational quote that Kari shared with me. I'm going to print it out and hang it above my craft table.

Extra Credit: get organized with Rubbermaid®

This post brought to you by Rubbermaid® All AccessTM Organizers. All opinions are 100% mine.


Crafty StorageOver the past few years, I’ve made several storage bins and posted about them. I love to get organized and making little storage bins is a great way to keep clutter at a minimum. I made an E-waste bin to hold dead batteries and other E-Waster until they can be properly disposed of. A pretty blue string box holds craft supplies that I’m currently using. Gift cards are stored in a small paper covered file box and my first roadside rescue displays Washi Tape and craft paint.

Inkling: paper mache confetti bowl

Confetti Bowl 7I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s very hard for me to throw away scraps of paper. I wouldn’t exactly classify it as hoarding but it could become a problem if I don’t use up the bits and pieces. This bowl wasn’t made out of paper scraps but paper catalogs. When I attended CHA in January, I came home with a lot of catalogs. The paper catalogs have pages and pages of pictures of pretty paper. How could I throw those away?
