Color theme

A few weeks ago our daughters little cousin Aaron turned one. The color theme for his birthday party was red and turquoise and I knew he (or should I say his mom, rather?) would appreciate the use of these colors for the card and gift I was to make for him. As for the gift I wanted it to be something special, that could be of joy to both him and his parents. I also wanted the gift to be easy to mail. His dad is crazy about cars and I believe he is on his way there too. I found the perfect paper and knew exactly what kind of gift to create... :-)

bird card decorated with a strip of recycled corrugated paper

Ok, so hands up everyone who have ever felt you have too much waste! I definitely have and even more so since our daughter was born. One thing we have tons of is baby food glass jars. This got me thinking. How can we make use of these instead of throwing them out? One way is to use them as candle jars. I filled mine with bee wax and decorated them with birch bark hearts.

On the same theme I also gave new life to two old wooden boxes, left by my granddad, by decorating them with patterned paper.

Spring is in the air

Inspired by the awakening coastal life and the spring butterflies in our garden , I made these creations during the weekend.
