spring crafting, a small start

oh my, these last, very long days of winter... i find them quite challenging this year. the little man and i decided last week that even though it was snowing again, we want to take down all our winter decorations, snow flake ornaments and snow spray pictures on our windows. it was time for some green, some birdies, and whatever else we might come up with.


it's a start, with more little creatures and spring decorations hopefully to follow within the next weeks. we made some simple birds, some are flying, one is sitting in it's nest already. the dragonfly we made from materials the artsy ants had  received for free from CraftProjectIdeas a while back: the wiggly eyes, craft jumbo sticks and the fuzzy sticks. we stuck the wiggly eyes on with glue but used dental floss (seriously one of our favorite craft materials ever!) to attach the fuzzy stick wings.




another thing that makes me happy in these last long days of winter is finishing a knitting project ;)) but that i will share tomorrow... have a lovely day!

I'm sure spring is just around the corner! At least now you've got it in your house already. Cute crafts, and I was able to see them without coming over as Mr.S requested me to do :)
