Feeling Easter-y

 Is it too early for an Easter craft?  I sure hope not because it is feeling so Springy around here!  Remember this frame I made the other day for my Instagram photos?  Well, I wasn't happy with it, so I decided to use it for this new Easter craft.

 I used the Capitals font and typed up "He is Risen Indeed" on my Silhouette.

 Then I cut the letters on some Spring-ish scrapbook paper and peeled them up.

 This is what was left over.  I thought about framing the leftover paper because I think it looks awesome, but passed on the idea.

Then I hung the letters on the bakers twine from teeny-tiny clothespins, found at Hobby Lobby. 

 "He is risen!"  Ok, now you say, "He is risen, indeed!"  :)

New Frame

 I've added a new frame to my collection today.  My husband informed me he thinks frames are beginning to take over our house, but I think that's crazy talk!

 I ordered some twine from The Twinery a while back when they were having a GroupDealz promotion.  This frame belonged to the collection of frames I found in our house when we moved in.  I spray painted it grey.

 I cut the twine to fit the frame then hot glued it to the back.

I found these teeny-tiny clothespins at Hobby Lobby and bought them with my 40% off coupon.  I don't think I've ever bought anything at Hobby Lobby without a 40% off discount!  Then I hung some instagram pics on the twine.

I really like the end result.  I've decided to use this frame to hang pics for now, but I'm thinking about switching the pics out for some letters and spelling something out.  Maybe "He is Risen" for Easter?

Clipix: A New Tool to Organize Your Life

I've recently discovered and become a fan of Clipix.  It's a new on-line tool that can be used to organize things you find and want to try.  It can be used to save recipes, craft ideas, books you want to read, the list can literally never end!

I opened a free account and began clipping Valentines Day projects I want to try with my toddler onto virtual "clipboards."  I've chosen to make my clipboards open for public viewing, but there is a privacy setting that allows you to choose who can see your boards.  I made another clipboard just for recipes that I plan on trying when I get around to them.  You can view my clipboards here.


There's also an iPhone app so you can take pictures of the things that inspire you and save them to your clipboard while out and about!  You can even share your clips on Facebook and Twitter.

A little confused?  View the one minute video below to find out more about Clipix.  Then visit Clipix and sign up today! After you begin clipping, come back here and let me know what kind of clipboards you've created!
