Turquosie Pillows and Driftwood Beach Sign

 Hello and happy day to you! I have been a crafting fiend lately I just got back from the ocean and that always get's me inspired to make beachy things.
 So I was at the craft store the other day looking for something completely different for a totally different craft project and I came across these cute little flower embelishments . All you need for these cute little pillows is the little white daisies which come without centers, scrapbook brads (those are the cute little centers of the flowers and some ruffle ribbon and ribbon glue. Just poke the little brads through the center of the daisy and glue on, it's that simple! There are a million adorable little flower embelishments and brads to chose from. Of course I picked turquoise because it's my favorite color if you have not figured that out yet.
Meausure out your ribbon and glue on.... project complete. I just love them,now all I need is a new white cushion for my wicker couch I just painted, it used to be black. I love when I can re use something I already have on hand cheap and a great way to recycle things. I also made this drift wood beach sign. My husband found this awesome piece of wood at one of our local lake Michigan beaches I L*O*V*E it if you look close enough you can see all the rusty nails I think that makes it look like it has been around for awhile and weathered and worn. I like to think  maybe it was part of a dock? or someone's deck? what ever it is I love it. For this I just bought some cardboard letters, painted them turquoise glues them on along with some little starfish. Oh and what do you think of my new floor in the sunroom? we painted the floor gray and did sort of a whitewash effect. I absolutely love how it turned out, thanks stef for help on the technique.
I'm off to make more pillows and a few other little craft projects,check back later I finished making some pmc bangle braclets just need a few more pics in the sunlight then I will share them. I am so excited to show you them. My friend taught me how to work with pmc clay and I have some other ideas I am working on ,can't wait to share them. Until we meet again I hope you are inspired to get busy crafting... What are you up too this spring and what has inspired you recently?

Hope you have a great weekend

Happy beachy blogging!
