Hello! Well I thought I'd start this up and post the various projects we are working on. There's always one thing or another in the works :0) We try to make most things ourselves, if possible...and I'm pretty blessed because Sher (my DH) can make me almost any piece of furniture I want. We have yet to learn how to carve though and we need to work on our upholstery skills. lol.

I know Easter has already passed but Spring is still here so I will show you my Easter project.
I came across this cute platter surrounded by baby chicks at the store and really liked it but I refrained myself from buying it.

A couple weeks later though we ran into each other again! it was meant to be so the baby chicks came home with me! I really loved it, but I thought the chicks could be a little cuter and the paint job needed some cleaning up - so out came the paint brushes...

So here they are all gussied up! The little baby girl chicks even got their lashes curled. hehe
I REALLLY love it now and it's completely my own. I love putting my touch on things :0)

About a week later I found this platter online for $89.00!! Mine was a LOT cheaper and in my opinion cuter, although I do love their little feet!

Well I hope everyone enjoyed Easter :0)
Like I said, even though it has passed I'm going to keep my chickies out a little longer simply because I love them. You should surround yourself with things you love, so my chicks are staying!

I'll post more of our past handmade projects soon.
Take care,
