Girly Ever After

Hi, girls! Here's a girly ever after that I finished up recently. I had so much fun making it! That's what it's all about for me. If it ain't fun- we ain't doing it! As the mini banner states, this pic is for Lindsey (of Two Crazy Crafters and Lindsey's Paper Scraps.) I was sending Twyla the Dorothy wreath that I had made (see here) sort of as a thank you for hosting the Oz party and I wanted to give Lindsey a little thank you gift too but I wasn't sure what. The next thing I knew, this little sweetie jumped off my craft table! ☺ Gr-r-r-r! I couldn't get that banner to curve the right way!
I just had to make another one of my little rose covered picket fences that graces my imaginary cottage!

But this time, there was a vintage Deer and Teddy visiting!

Do you like the frame? It's just plastic and...

here's the before. It was a GW special from over the Winter. I can't read the price tag now but I know it was under a dollar.

One fun thing about this project is that many of the elements used in this project were gifts from you blogging girls! So, when I'm creating, you're creating with me!
I really enjoy making things for other people, although it does make me nervous that they might not really like it! If I ever make you something, and you don't really like it, feel free to give it away to the Good Will! Ha-ha! Maybe some crazy girl will find it and blog about it! ☺
I've been crafting all sorts of things but I can't show you what they are until the projects are received by their recipients! I'll keep you posted!
Have a great week end. ♥

Holly, the package you sent was a total delight. It was so special because it came from you and then the little surprises along the way were so sweet. We loved our tags and the Hello Kitty mushrooms! We'll share:) I love my wreath. I can't imagine anyone not liking what you made and it is so neat how you create from things people send you. It's a wonderful blogging community. Hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend! Twyla

Hi, Holly,
So cute! I remember the last one you made, too. Love the white picket fence. I have actually made something myself. All of you creative girls have inspired me, and so I created a little something. I am going to show it on a post in a day or two. Have a happy weekend! Vicki

Pearl said...

Such a sweet and adorable gift you've created for Lindsey... I'm sure she'll treasure it. There's just something very comforting about white picket fences...
Hope you're doing well and enjoying the long Holiday weekend...
