Trying something new....again!

Yipee~ I am finally done with this topiary that I have been working on over a week now. It sure does take time to make all the flowers and then piece them together. I made some curly~q's too. First time ever making pinwheels....mega fun too....I put sand in my bucket too....Let me know what you think. Entered challenge over at forfun challenges.
Cupcake craft challenges. Also at Crafty card makers
Over at OneStitch at a time...anything goes. Petals and Pearls challenge over at

Okay for those of you who already follow my blog no that I like to step out of the box....quite a bit actually. This time I made this bracelet out of a water bottle...yep...water bottle. I try to go green in lots of crafting...makes it more real and it is fun too. I hope you like my twine bracelet. I added a bead and a cross. For your FYI this bracelet is 7inch around. Perfect for a teenager but I would like it bigger. So working on one tonight with my flavored water bottle (Sobe) it looks bigger around. Trying another way of decorating it.

Thanks for stopping by.....Going to enjoy the evening with my boys and watch a movie. Happy on American Idol they saved Big Mike....who is from Florida too.... We had a scare with the puppies they escaped and ran off the property and someone picked them up. They were running after my vehicle and I didn't even know...could have been worse but they are home and my hubby and two of my boys are building them a new fenced area this evening. I love my Chief and Roger they are soooooooooo cute!
Have a great evening....smiles...Tammy


  1. Those flowers are so neat made out of paper and what a unique idea for a bracelet!

  2. The topiary turned out beautiful. LOVE the bracelet. I found a project where you take two bottoms of green plastic bottles and attatch a zipper to make a green frog zipper pouch. I love clever stuff like that. :)
