Check out my latest invite I just add into my collection today!
When I started this invite I only had the Tree..
A Tree- what is a Tree
tree, n., 1.a plant having a permanently woody main stem or trunk, ordinarily growing to a considerable height, developing branches at some distance from the ground. 2.FAMILY TREE
Then I sat and started thinking what I could add to this beautiful twirly FAMILY TREE..
I started sipping some tea...
then it hit me Stepping Stones!!
So I started bending and twisting circles until I came up with looks sorta like
step'ping•stone', n. 1.a stone for stepping on in crossing a stream. 2. any means or stage of advancement or improvement.
So now I had the tree and stepping stones.
after some more tea sipping came the pink bike!
Everyone has a Family Tree, whether its big or small
We each leave our footprints on the stepping stones of life.
Some of our footprints might have been a little rough and edgy,
but the Stream of Life has made them shiny and smooth.
So grab your bike and lets ride..
Down Memory Lane!
mem'ory lane', n. the memory of one's past life likened to a road down which one may travel: to walk down memory lane.
It is one of my favorite, not because of the beautiful twirly tree or the hot pink bike, but of what it entails..
Memory Lane Picture Frame
I saw this cute idea and wanted to share!!!
Is your mother's or grandmother's jewelry box a treasure trove of elegant baubles? Ask her to donate some trinkets to your cause, then use them to decorate a picture frame for a sentimental sister or cousin. Want to get down to brass tacks instead? Make a treasure box with little pieces of hardware scavenged from Grandpa's tool chest.
Picture frame (flat wood or plastic works best)
Strong craft glue (we like Crafter's Pick The Ultimate Glue)
To prepare the jewelry, remove earring and brooch backs and unstring any beads. Remove the glass from the picture frame.
Working in sections, use the foam brush to apply a thick layer of glue, then press on the beads and jewelry. When the frame is completely dry, reinsert the glass.
Bring some Green into your everyday life -all year round
MARTHA STEWART DOES IT AGAIN!
and I love it!
This is such a great way to grow herb year round!
Instead of spending the winter gazing through glass panes at frozen flower beds, transform a window into a mini-greenhouse where herbs, houseplants, and even little pots of grass will thrive. For best results, choose a large inset window that receives lots of light.
1. To determine the dimensions of the shelves, measure the depth and width of the window frame, and subtract 1/2 inch from the width.
2. Have a glazier cut a 1/2-inch-thick piece of glass to size for each shelf; for a more finished look, have the edges sanded. Using a level and a ruler for precision, make pencil marks where each shelf support should go, starting from the top of the window frame.
3. Make supports out of molding, available at hardware stores: Using a hand saw, cut two lengths of molding for each shelf (the molding length should equal the depth of the frame). Sand the ends smooth.
4. Drill three evenly spaced holes (just bigger than the head of a wood screw) in each support. Hold a support against the appropriate mark on the window frame, insert the bit of an electric drill through one of the holes, and drill a starter spot into the frame. Repeat for the other holes, then countersink screws so the heads don't show. Repeat for remaining supports. Fill holes with wood putty, sand smooth, and paint supports. Once paint dries, attach a felt dot or plastic glide to each support end, and set glass shelves in place.
A day to catch-up on old projects or maybe watch movies in my PJ's all-day.. Most rainy days that might be true but not today..
