My favorite spring project is decorating my front and side porches. I fill them with bedding plants, ferns, and misc. stuff that I love. It just makes my home feel welcoming to sweep off the winter. Found you on instagram and love see your blog now too.

Hey Jenn,

So glad you're back! I've missed checking in on you and your family. The magazine was great. I loved all the colors. Very inspiring. I can't wait to make some of these things.

My favorite part, besides your fun stuff, was "How to Make Great Art". I'm going to buy that book.

Love your stuff and your smiles!!

Hey Jenn...

My favorite spring project is getting out in the garden and making my planters, full of fresh moss, and cheery flowers. The kids also love to decorate eggs dipped in food colouring, a classic :)
Hope you have a great week!

I love planting pansies in pots for my porch as soon as it is warm enough!

My Owl Barn said...

My favorite spring project from the magazine is the tiny nests made with fabric and beads. So cute!

Love that bowl!

Home Sweet Home Place said...

Love the bowls! They are probably my favorite thing in the magazine. My favorite project this time of year is Easter decorations! I like to make at least one new decor item and an outfit for my girls! Love your work!!

Shauna said...

My favorite thing is walking through the greenhouses deciding what lovely flowers and colors will cover my deck this year...and i also adore the anticipation of my hummingbirds arrival back east for the summer. :)

Amy said...

I would love to try making one of your bowls. I'm going to be on the lookout when I got thrifting! And I love those sweet Spring cloches! Must try that!!!

CountryBelle said...

I always look forward to cleaning out the flowerbeds. (stink and all) It reveals the freshness and newness of spring!

My favourite spring project usually has to do with cross-stitch, bunnies and flowers. After seeing nothing but white all winter, I get anxious to see colour, and since our growing season is so short, we don't get flowers in the garden until June.
So flowers in crafts are a must!

These bowls make me smile! My favorite Spring thing to do is get the family together to decorate Easter eggs. We come up with a different method each year to keep it fresh and fun!

noodle and lou said...

I like making nests by adding outdoor findings...twigs and such to embellish craft store nests. I like mine to have bits of yarn, pussy willow and the like to make it interesting while striving for that natural bird made look. I paint small wooden eggs to place on a bed of moss inside. Placed on a stack of old books or under a small cloche these make my house have a Spring-y feel! Marie

Deb said...

My favorite spring project is decorating my front porch. My craft project this spring will be painting milkcans and making them into tables (with a round top) - saw it on pinterest so I'm tackling that! Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful bowl.

Anita said...

I like to make little cloth books for spring birthdays incorporating a lot of floral fabrics.

Lucy said...

HI! I LOVE to create my Spring Thimbleart! Fun! Fun! Fun!! Placing some of my Thimbleart in one of your bowls would be so FUN on my table! :)

Sarah said...

I love sewing spring skirts! Your bowls are just precious!

Tina said...

It's all good in the spring crafting category!!! I think I'd love to make an armful of Kathy Curotto's bangles, they're so fun. (And I could keep them in your bowls!!!)

Love everything in the magazine! My favorite springtime project is letting my kids paint wooden eggs. I love to see how they evolve over the years!

Making Easter baskets is my favorite spring project.

Eugenia said...

every Easter whoever is over participates in making a craft. we have decorated blown eggs, stepping stones, clay cupcakes, and paper mache birds. our Easter decorating collection grows and memories are made of our time together.

cakegirl said...

My favorite thing to do once spring arrives in the Midwest is to brighten up the outside with pots of flowers. Just visiting the garden centers puts a smile on my face. And so do your darling bowls! Thanks for the giveaway.

KarenB said...

I saw lots of wooden bowls today at the flea market for your polka dot bowl project. I also saw little tins for your bunny girls. Both your ideas were favorites!

Adorable bowls! My fave project for spring is cleaning out and organizing all drawers and closets....except my clothes- that i put off for years! I love going to bed at night after the clean out is finished feeling like there is not one thing in my house that I don't need and love!

stefanie gladden said...

one of my favorite spring projects would have to be making adorable flowers for the kids rooms, all different colors and different kinds of flowers, we always have so much fun!
