So Excited About My Minds Eye

Just wanted to share some Super Fun news!!! I recently posted a picture of my Whimsy mini Christmas Trees on the My Minds Eye face book page and guess what??!! They contacted me and asked my permission to post my pic on their blog in one of their segments call "Caught My Eye"  I am so excited about this.  They are even going to send me a little "somethin' somethin' " as a thank you !  How cool is that?   I am posting a pic of my little trees and they are supper easy to make.  

 Instructions: Using your favorite scraps make 4 graduated sizes of circles using punches, or you can use your Cricut or diecuts.  I made my circles 2, 1 3/4, 1 1/4 and 1 inches.  I also inked the edges, punched a hole in the center of each circle and used a small a dowel (or you can you a chopstick) to run the circles through.You can make it as tall as you want I think I used between 18 to 20 circles.  After adding the circles to the dowel, I applied mod podge with a small paint brush randomly around the circles and sprinkled on some diamond dust (love that stuff, it's like little shards of crystals.) I also topped each tree with a little star ( I used two to sandwich in the top of the dowel.  I also cut out stars using felt. I used old thread spools for the base and glued a strip of my fav paper and some lace for a finishing touch. Stick your tree into the spool and voila you're done!  These little whimsies are so much fun to do and you can distress the circles as much as you want;  glimmer mist, paint, you can add sentiments and a stick pin to the lace...the possibilities are endless!!!

Thanks for Listening and Have a Wonderfully Blessed Week!!

  4. Tammy: I saw your idea on MME blog and had to head over to tell you congratulations (must be VERY exciting to be noticed). Your idea is just darling! I picked up a load of antique spools this past summer, and now I have another great idea of what to do with them. Thanks for inspiring me to make some of these cuties! I appreciate it so much. Again, enjoy the spotlight. You earned it on this one!
