Michele Made Me ... do it!

To be honest, I had pretty much given up on the idea of doing any more "recycled/reuse" crafting. And then I began following Michele, the brilliant mind behind the Michele Made Me Blog and the Tute 'n Pattern Shop. (I share more of her story here.)

Yarnia Inspired Angles: My Littlest Angel

P1120384

Almost named this angel "Trouble"! But all is forgiven now so that's not going to happen!

Instead, I have named her "My Littlest Angel" after the little angel in a much loved book (The Littlest Angel) remembered from my childhood. For a time the angel in the story just couldn't get the hang of things and kept inadvertently doing things that prevented him from getting his wings.

I had so much fun making Angels using scrap yarn and cardboard cones from Yarnia that what started out to be an angelic duet turned into a choir of six!

Celebrating Mid-Summer with Recycled Aluminum Cans!

Garden Art!  Sun mobile made from the aluminum can bottoms left over from the butterfly mobile.

The idea of making little suns was inspired by Midsummer Celebrations.  Midsummer is celebrated around the world near the summer solstice - the longest day of the year. This link will give you some idea of how many cultures celebrate.

Butterfly and Ivy Wreath One Year Old!

Last year about this time I put together this little vine wreath for the front door.  My plan was for it to last through the summer and then to reuse the wreath as a base for a fall themed wreath.

But, when fall came, it was still growing and looking beautiful! So, just before the first frost, I brought it inside with the faint hope I could winter it over.

And here it is - back on my front door for another summer!  Those two little canisters I used to hold water really worked great!
