My name is Kendra and I'm a craftaholic. Our office is divided in two and half is ALL MINE! I love to create and use my hands and have tried just a little bit of everything. It is my therapy and holy cow do I need a lot of it. I also make and sell jewelry which was at first to pay for my many crazy hobbies but since has taken off so bonus for getting paid to do something I love!
Have I ever said how much I love coordinated scrapbook paper? Well, I do. It takes a lot of the guess work out of designing. Almost whatever you do will look good together. I found this scrapbook paper set on sale for $3 and it came with 6 coordinating papers, stickers, punchouts, vellum...it was more than enough for what I needed with a lot to spare. I'm sure I'll figure something way to use the leftovers!I also found these adorable little wooden birdhouses on sale at the craft store and I had to have them, especially since they were on sale! I have been loving the bird trend lately and I instantly knew what I was going to do with them.All I did was cover the different surface areas of the birdhouses with different paper from the coordinating set I had. The only supplies I used was scissors, a paper cutter and glue stick. I have to say, it took FOREVER to get it all covered. Forever! Then I added some of the embellishments that came with the pack to spice it up a little bit. It looks beautiful and I love the results. But I think if I had to do it again I would have done one big birdhouse rather than five small ones.Right now they're sitting on top of the piano. In a perfect world I would put it up on the fireplace but last time I put something up there my toddler smashed one of my favorite figurines, right in front of my face. It was extremely painful to watched. I learned my lesson.
