We Have A Winner And A Couple Other Announcements

And the winner is
Karen B!
Thank you to everyone who left a comment,
and welcome to anyone discovering my blog for the first time.

There are no new 
Flea Market Friday
items this week,
hopefully I will get a few things together for next week.

I have not forgotten May's ATC Swap,
I will be announcing the theme next week.

Finally, I just received the last of April's ATCs,
It is unlikely that I will get around to swapping them out before Monday.
I will post photos once they are in the mail.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
and a beautiful, blessed Easter!

Quick Tips & Tricks

I have struggled with wood mount stamps forever.
I was never happy with the results I was getting,
especially with these larger stamps.

The solution is so simple.
As easy as making a sandwich.

Here's what I do,
layer a piece of craft foam,
then the paper,
ink the stamp and press with even pressure.
Don't rush it, 
hold the stamp in place a bit to allow the ink to transfer.

I'll share the finished doll tomorrow.

Thrifty Thursday Crafting

I purchased these 3 items on a recent trip to Dollar Tree.

While the bunny faces are cute,
they aren't really my thing.
A little nail polish remover made quick work of erasing most of the image.
There was still a "ghost" in the face area,
so I used the back side of the eggs.
The eggs were much cleaner,
I feel it was worth doing this step.

Paint the clay pots with any acrylic paint.

This is what I used.

It took 2 coats of paint,
followed by a light sanding to get the look I was after.

Hot glue the paper shreds around the edge of the pots 
to make a nest.

Glue the eggs into the center of the nests.
I used Thickers glitter letters by American Crafts
to spell J O Y on the eggs,
and decorated the O with a bit of excelsior and a velvet pansy.

Happy JOYful Spring!
