Mosaic my pot.

Does anyone else have a hard time committing?  
We found this great Snake Plant, it's low maintenance and a great size...we just can't commit to a pot for it.  
Planting and potting in an apartment is messy. 
So once this baby is repotted, it's staying there! 

We were told that our plant would do just fine in the plastic pot it came we're holding off on the perfect pot and making good use of what we have! 

The plastic pot is wrapped with a piece of cardstock cut down to size...truth is the back half of the pot isn't wrapped...but no one ever sees the  

We made a simple gray geometric triangle pattern with random pops of blue.

Can ya dig it?!

Everyone Poops.

Light a match!

We decorated match boxes for those "ooops-poops" moments.

We made the emoji poop stamp out of an eraser!

...added googly eyes! 

Keeping it poop at a time.

Wrapped Yarn Vase.

This started out as a Mother's Day gift idea with both our Moms in mind, they both are incredible with yarn.  Well, the finished product turned out to be a little less "them" and a little more "us".  
Maybe it was the yarn we chose? Either way, we love the outcome.  
Happy Mother's day, Moms!  We got you cards! 

It seems pretty self explanatory, wrap yarn around vase.'s a little trickier than that. 

Initially, you have to tape as you go around the vase.  The vase does not hold the yarn in place without the help of tape.  It was a bit of a struggle sometimes, but it came together!...with a little patience.  (we got our vase from CB2)

Wrap and tape. Wrap and tape. 
Once the vase is covered then keep on wrapping without tape.  The yarn will start to hold in place and you can start shaping by wrapping more yarn.  At the mouth of the vase we ended up hot gluing the yarn in place because it kept unraveling.  Tuck in the yarn end and enjoy! 

And cats love it too!

Killer Cacti Cocktail Stirrers!

Ole` May! 
Celebrate with a cheeky cactus in your cocktail!

We used: Tissue paper, card stock, shish Kebab skewers, mini wooden pots (from Michaels), scisors, glue stick, and a glue gun. 

Fold the white cardstock paper in half and cut out a pair of each cactus.  Each cactus is double sided. 
Cut small fringe strips out of tissue paper.
Starting from the bottom, layer the strips on your cactus cutout.
Trim the edges! 
Make a paper flower if you want! 

Thread the skewer through the bottom of the hole of the pot and hot glue it! 
Glue your cactus together on the skewer. Trim skewer if you need to. Skewer. 

Better watch out for those man-eating jackrabbits and that killer cacti!...Hey Duuuude!
