Spring Crafting

Yeah, yeah, Spring is usually the time for another "C" word...ahem, cleaning....but the only real Spring Cleaning I do is more vacuuming because the sunlight streaming through my patio doors highlights the cereal crumbs on the floor so well.

I was recently inspired by a post by the lovely and super crafty Soule Mama.  She has personalized napkin rings for every member of her family.  Now, she lives in Maine.  Maine is crawling with awesome antique shops and swap meets (I am sure you might even run into a roving Martha or one of her minions if you have your timing right)  I do not have access to these things, so I decided to dive into my considerable stash of beads, and with the help of Charlotte, we got to work.

These are not as elegant as SouleMama's, but they are fun and funky, and double as fashion accessories when Charlotte's mood and outfit decide that.

In another fit of crafting I grabbed a pair of ripped jeans that have been laying around my house and turned them into a cute new summery skirt for my fashionista girl.

What does Spring mean to you?  More cleaning?  More crafting?

Hmm, I'm not really sure I can turn it into a "c." More being outside. Craving the sun. There we go :-).
