Doily flower

I bring to you a new flower tutorial. I went to a class at a local craft store a couple of weeks ago and made this really cool wreath with lots of hand made flowers on it.

Can you see the yellow ones? Those were made from doilies and I'm going to show you how to do it. It is really simple.

Start with a paper doilie, an inkpad, a button, glue dots and a small rubberband.
crumple it up in your hand into a little ball and then smooth it back out.

blot ink onto the doilie using a sponge or an ink dauber. Do not rub it because the edges of the doily are delicate and will tear.
Turn it upside down. Put a glue dot in the middle and place a button there. The color of the button does not matter because it won't show. This is your chance to use your ugly buttons!
Pinch the doily around the button and wrap the rubber band around it to hold it.

Then spread your flower out gently and use on your product. So easy!

Home Mini Album Prompt: Favorite Room

Good morning! I don't know if it feels like Fall where you live, but is sure does here and I'm loving it! We are now in week 5 of our Home mini album journey. If you have been following along, you should have enough pages done now to really make your mini album look great! And if you haven't started one yet, why not join in? These mini's will make great keepsakes for years to come.

This week, my prompt is for you to document that favorite room in your house. It may be the room that you love to spend time alone in. Or maybe the one place where everyone gathers and wonderful conversations fill the air. Maybe you want to remember the evenings spent on your porch with that special someone.

For me, I chose to remember our bedroom. A few years ago, we decided to buy new bedroom furniture and make it the one room that didn't have crayon marks on the walls or spills on the carpet. We wanted a room that we could spend time in and feel relaxed and at ease. We love our bedroom now (although the crayons still seemed to sneak their way in)! And even though it is our sanctuary away from the everyday chaos, the children still feel welcome. There are fun times when they all crawl into bed with us for a movie together. It is also where they come in the middle of the night after having a bad dream. The door is ALWAYS open to them and I think that is one of the reasons why this room is so special to me.
