WE {HEART} Sandy!

Meet Sandy...she is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. She made our day today! It was a special delivery all the way from her home, Canada. You see, my daughter is learning about Canada for a Girl Scout project. I enlisted Sandy to help. She packed up this amazing box full of patriotic gear and even put a little surprise in it for me. It went straight to me heart (and my stomach)! CHOCOLATE! I met Sandy while soldering with Sally Jean. My first image of her was solder flying through the air, followed by a tiny scream...I just knew I would like this girl! She was brave! Make sure you check out Sandy's Blog...she is an amazing talent!




Just look at the attention to detail she paid to the box of Chocolates...It is such a lovely presentation that I will save it forever...empty of course...in my studio.

Okay, here is a little nothing-ness...
I made my poor children jump out of a stopped car in our neighborhood. They were asked to get a lovely tree branch for me. I just can't understand all the protesting they were doing- Something about I was embarrassing them...yada yada.
So I brought home the branch and spray painted it a lovely champagne color. Then, I sprinkled on my Martha Stewart glitter-Carrara Marble Yummy! The picture just doesn't do it justice. We hung some glitter heart ornaments that I had lying around and planted the branch in a vase with clear marbles. I did see where Wal-Mart has heart shaped glass marbles. They maybe cute to mix in with the clear. It is a simple decoration that really had very little cost. Go out and embarrass your children, have them bring home a tree branch today!









Hugs-Kara

What a wonderful surprise for your little one! And I am sure my kids can totally relate to yours in the "scavenging-for-tree-branch-with-Mom department". :O

I totally haven't embarrased my children in a while, maybe I need to do just that! Love what you did with your branch. Miss not seeing you...

I think that was so worth their embarassment. :) It turned out lovely and makes me want to rip out the same glitter....I got some on clearance and have been saving it.

I love that branch idea! And I have decided it is our job to embarass our children. Otherwise, they will have nothing to talk about in therapy later in life...LOL

I LOVE the box! But I love your little tree even more!!! it is just sooo pretty! I can't believe how creative you are! I would see a branch and I would think of the crunching sound if I ran over it... never would I think of getting it to make something so pretty!
