A little something for my big sis!!

My amazing big sister just turned 30 again and for her birthday I made her a cute little card out of some fabric scraps.  I refuse to throw out a good piece of fabric, I know that some of you out there can understand just where I'm coming from.  When completed it measures in at 8" x 8", and she could hang anywhere she wanted.

On the back I sewed the words: "Thanks for always holding my hand."  She's the best big sister a girl could ask for, she's always had my back and is always there to hold my hand.
I thank the lord every day for such an Amazing friend and sister!!
Love you always,
your baby sis,

One husbands trash is a wives treasure

Some years back we changed the windows out in our home.  At that time with much demanding I was able to talk my husband into putting some of the old windows in the garden shed.  I was sure I could make something amazing out of those great old windows.

Now back to the present day(10 years later) Its time to clean out the garden shed and there sits those windows.  And again, my husband wanted to throw them out right away, and again I demanded.  So that day just to prove my point I whipped up a little something.

One window down only eight more to go!!!   
I can't explain my obsession with these old windows, but I just couldn't throw them out. 

So I made a window with dried flowers behind the glass, then I added a few hooks and an old glass door knob along with a ribbon and a skeleton key and there you have it.

This one I added again dried flowers behind the glass along with two old pull handles.
This window has dried flowers behind the glass along with a inspirational saying.
"Always remember to dance after the storm."

The moral to my story: Something old can be new again.  I hope my windows have stirred your imagination and got your creative juices flowing.
Happy Creating
