Rag Tutu Tutorial........With Jane
I'm going to do something that I rarely do since I am not a naturally crafty type.  
I do have friends though that are and they shame me into one periodically.
I've noticed tonnes of rag tutus on the net and was thrilled to find a really easy 
tutorial that even someone like me could follow.  I'll give you a very 
rough description but if you want great details go here.
I started off with a variety of pretty fabrics.
Sewed (yes, not a typo, I actually sewed something).
We ripped fabric into lengths but also thought for fun that we'd also 
make a few using tuille ribbon that was found at the dollar store.

And started to tie (slip knots onto the waist band)...
and tie...
and tie until this is what we got.
A very active kiddo did not want to get her photo taken.
Until the pro stepped in and here's an actually fantastic photo taken by my friend Michelle.
Need Help With Your Photos?
Much, much better.
Have you had a chance to add your photos 
to her 101 class on Flikr? ...........There's still time.
.............................
Join us again today and share what you've been up to this spring.
Thanks SO much Jane...I absolutely adore your lil munchkin..

Celebrating Motherhood ~ Gifts, Tips & Fun Ideas {Share YOUR Projects}

It's Almost Mother's Day
& I Am ELATED!!!
Photobucket
Why..?!? No, not just because I get a fun gift (#sideeyemyself! LOL!),
but mainly because it's a very sentimental time that bonds us women together.
I LOVE the idea of being celebrated. There's SO much that goes into motherhood.
Our unconditional love, our bonds, our day in's and out's, the struggle
for the best we can afford to give, the understanding, the pure bliss,
the smiles, the cries, and the simplicity that is falling in
love and caring for our children from first sight.

A SPECIAL GUEST HOST
*The Lovely Micki Via Add Housewife*
Confessions of an ADD Housewife
Hi! I'm Micki from Confessions of an ADD Housewife.  
And the answer to the question that has already popped into your head is,
Yes, I do have ADD! Oh look...a kitten! Yellow is my favorite color.
Yellow reminds me of sunshine and happy days. Ice cream is tasty, too.
.......................................................
Hi! I'm Micki. Ok, kidding aside, I started blogging several years ago..back
when I had just four kids and lived in Oregon. I now have six children and live in
Alabama! Four girls, two boys. My children range in age from 3 to 15. My 15 year
old son has a form of high functioning autism called Aspergers Syndrome. My
school aged children all go to different schools. I "stay home" and pretend to
use my  college education write, edit, and create whatever comes to my fancy.
..............................................
It's a life like this that makes it helpful to have ADD! A variety of interests, a 
variety of talents...and loads to talk about from home organization projects,  
coupon. A lot. But I'm not a hoarder, so they don't want me on 
that TV show. But I am good enough for local TV.
...........................................................
Isn't she just so darling..? Please stop in and visit Micki and be inspired by
SO much, from her amazing story to all her creative and fun projects featured
on her lovely blog. SO thankful to have her share today with us..
...................& Speaking of thankful!

Vintage Tea Lights Mason Jars..

I Adore Everything VINTAGE!
BUT WHO DOESN'T ..?!?!?
This afternoon, I decided to create some new candle
tea light holder's for my kitchen counter top! Much Over due!
I've been getting into shades of pinks and found this old 
craft paper in my craft stash bin to put to use!.
Whatcha Thinking..? 
* Vintage Tea Light Mason Jars *

I stained the paper to make it look
much older than it was and it turned out awesome.
The Artsy Items Needed
Mason Jars..............Craft Paper
Old craft stash floral pieces..........Burlap(just the rope strips)
Glue gun.............. And see HERE for staining if needed for your paper.
Lets Craft Away
To begin, find your paper pieces you would like to use. Michael's has great selections.
Mine is really old. I purchased this paper I think mid last year for a project.
Fit your paper to jar and cut up as many as you need. I made four jars.
Crinkle up the paper (gives it an even older vintage look and stain).
After staining, hot glue your paper to your jars.
I decided to make the jar look a little bit more pretty by adding some floral pieces
and strings from a patch of burlap. (I wanted to use natural rope, but didn't have any),
so this worked out perfectly. Turned out better than I thought it will as I love how
light and airy the burlap strings where. (Literally pull the strings out of a piece
of burlap and attach next to your flower and around the jars)
..................Voila!
Something a bit new turned old fashioned & fun!
I simply love my new tea light holder's..
Easy, Fun & Festively Vintage..
Hope you enjoyed this little piece here today..
...........................................
*Small changes are happening all around my blog, so please
bare with me and let me know your thoughts.. YOU guys
matter most when it comes to my blog and your
input means the world!! Thanks SO much.. *

A Bit About Our Lovely Host
Your Name 
Mary Gene Atwood
What photography is/means to you 
Photography is an itch that always needs scratching. I so want to get 
better and better, and I love doing photos for people 
and seeing their enjoyment in what shot.
Your favorite thing to shoot 
People Or Things At The Beach 
Your favorite shot you took (EVER!<--lol) 
My all time favorite is either my last sunset shot while in Hawaii, or 
one of children on rocks at the ocean, and whale is breaching right 
beside them. They were clueless as they were looking down.
Photographers you look up to, inspire you 
Too many to list. I love different photographers for different things. I spotted 
Erich McVey over a year ago, followed him, he ended up shooting my son's 
wedding, and now he's a rising star. I like to think I saw the star before it rose.  
I also love Gabriel/Boone photography. I follow lots of photography 
blogs, and Becky at Shaking the tree does some amazing things.
What are you shooting with :  Canon 5D
Your future goals in your photography journey 
Immediate goal is to shoot only in manual (which I've been doing for awhile) 
and to tackle Photoshop elements. It's time! My family thinks I need to stop 
"giving it away", but as long as I enjoy what I'm doing, I'm happy.
............................................
Thanks so much for joining us today Mary Gene.
I am VERY excited to get to see your picks and hope you enjoy hosting 
with us.. Please take a moment and check out her 
awesome blog! PERFECT Photography!!
