Happy Spring to you!

Although most of the US is enjoying fabulous weather, we're still patiently waiting for some spring-like temps here in the Pacific Northwest.

To help make it feel like spring (at least make it feel like it's coming) I made up a batch of bunnies. Look for 'em in my Etsy shop soon!

One of my favorite holidays "Daylight Savings Time" starts this Sunday at 2am. It's definitely cause for a celebration - Spring is just around the corner! For a chance to win the pictured apron, all you have to do is "like" the post on my Facebook page. I'll draw and announce the winner on Facebook, sometime Saturday evening.

Driftwood Anchor

Last summer, I started a driftwood art project while we were vacationing on Whidbey Is.
I didn't get a chance to finish it while we were there, so I brought home all the supplies.
I finally got around to completing it!
Inspired by the popular Pottery Barn driftwood star, I wanted to create something similar, but in a different shape.
Here is how I made my driftwood anchor:
First off, I started out by collecting a variety of driftwood off our beach.
After creating a pattern in the shape of an anchor, I transferred it to a thin piece of plywood and
had my hubby cut it out with a bandsaw.
Next, I painted it Cape Cod gray (since that's what my daddy had in his garage).
And this is where my project stopped...
...until today, when I laid out the driftwood pieces and glued them to the plywood.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
