Have you guys heard about A Lovely Place to Land’s DI4Y Month? Every Thursday of this month she will be having a linky party showing something we’ve created for someone else. I am very excited to participate and what a great reminder to serve and love others with our talents. Check it out! :)
I am also participating in a service project she has organized to donate fun suitcases or bags to the girls at Hope Hills Children’s Home. You can check it out here… http://thedi4yproject.webs.com/getinvolved.htm
This week I made this sweet little planter for my aunt. She has always been a big part of my life and consider her an aunt, sister and friend all rolled into one! She is an amazing person who is always willing to help and give, never expecting anything in return. She is very accepting of everyone and doesn’t gossip or talk poorly of others. I am always impressed with her positive attitude. She has always been an example to me and one of my biggest fans. My kids LOVE to be around her because she is always fun and happy and does fun things with them. I love to laugh with her and be silly, but I know she’d always be there for me in a time of need. I am so grateful for her in my life and I probably don’t tell her enough.
Thanks, Amanda for reminder us all to share our talents with others. Although it’s not much, hopefully sharing this bit of Spring with my Aunt will brighten her day and remind her how loved and appreciated she is.
A little planter like this is so fun and easy to make. It is actually in a little mug, so it doesn’t take much to fill it. I started with my just a bit off center, so they can fall down one side. Then I simply added in some mini roses and filled in with different greens and moss until I got my desired look and fullness. Next I stuck in my tiny little nest. For the finishing touch, I tied a sweet bow on the handle. This adds some softness as well as balance. I hope this inspires you to create and spread some spring and love! Warmest wishes to you and yours.
