That's an idea!!!

How do you like your eggs? Sunny side up, over easy, scrambled, poached, hard boiled, am I forgetting anything....well after making eggs in this house I save my cartons... and save...waiting to put them to good use...until recently I had an idea on what to do with them....
supplies needed... not much... scissor & egg carton

perfect fit for my "nested treasures" ring & things.

Now that's an idea!!!! Any other creative ideas on what else I can do with all the cartons I would love to hear. xooxxo laura

Shell Of The Ball

Ok all you shell lovers... here is another shell creation & fun project you can do. I have several of these SEA GODDESS NYMPHS ( I call them) around my home. They look really pretty in the bathroom. My dear friend Kim gave me this statue & said do something with her.. so what does any girl with 500 pounds of shells around her home do.. glue gun the shells on that girl! By adding a touch of pearls, jewels, lavender flowers, ( she loves that) and making a pretty cross necklace out of old pearls is such a great way to alter a bust. Funny her shell hair she reminds me of me when I use to wear those spongy PINK rollers as a kid... remember those? What do you think.. Shell of the Ball? I am giving her to my friend Kim today...hope she loves her new look or locks I should say. xoxo Laura
