It’s been a while since I created a bird project for our yard…so I decided to combine this year’s “Cabin” theme with an outdoors project. Since we always have nesting wrens and chickadees at our house, I wanted to make them a new, alternative abode.Read more ›
I can seriously hardly believe that the end of April is here and it’s time (almost past time!) to shop for Mother’s Day! I’m just about ready to declare 2015 as the fastest moving year ever.
Last December, I did a “12 Days of Etsy” series on my Facebook page, featuring 12 of my favorite Etsy shops.

So in honor of moms everywhere, here are 12 fantastic shops offering fun, unique, and handmade gifts for Mother’s Day.Read more ›
