March and April are usually the months during which, in addition to playing with Easter Eggs, I am often engaged in working with "tin" or sharing ideas for reuse and recycle. And after five years of blogging, I have assembled a nice collection of tutorials in both catagories! So - if you are interested in either of these crafty subjects - keep reading!

Finally! My "frightful" trees have made the transition from Halloween table toppers to sparkly, snow covered winter holiday trees.
A couple layers of spray snow, a few weeks of obsessing and finally a liberal application of fine, snowy glitter transformed what began as fresh corn husks - into a winter wonderland of holiday prettiness.

It suddenly occurred to me while I was preparing to visit my local craft store to purchase a pillow form for the sun painted fabric pillow that I have altogether too many pillows sitting around - many unused most of the year (holiday pillows). Why not simply create a slip case type cover and pull one of those pillows out of storage!
By reusing pillows I already own, I am saving between $15.00 and $20.00 per pillow and reducing the number of pillows I have stored in the closet!!

My friend Michelle has inspired me on more than one occasion to think about the crafty possibilities of cereal box cardboard! Guess what - I just used it again - to make God's Eyes! And turned what was at first a negative outcome into a very cool new way to make God's Eyes! 3-D God's eyes!
You see, the problem that occurs when using cereal box cardboard for the supports is that after winding the yarn about four times, the God's Eye will begin to curve. No stopping it!
