Chevron Moss Pumpkin at Mom Spark

This DIY pumpkin is a surprising pop of green for your Autumn decorations. Chevron Moss Pumpkin Tutorial

Moss stinks. I guess because it's a natural thing or whatever but it doesn't smell good. Every time I open up a package of it I'm startled by the smell. I mean, when will I learn? But the thing is, out of that little plastic bag and moss starts to lose its smell a bit. Which is why I'm all for crafting up with the stank stuff! And in bringing a bit of green to my traditional orange and brown fall decor, I've decided that it's looks great. I'm surprisingly pleased with the results and I … [Continue reading]

I am the family photographer. It might have happened when my sister was pregnant with my oldest nephew. Documenting what was going on from behind the camera was about the best I could do. I tried to be there for her during the actual birth, but the doctor asked me to leave. I was quite happy about that. But after he came into this world I snapped pictures like nothing you've ever seen... There are probably just as many photos of this kid as there are any Hollywood celebrity. I. Snapped.

Hello! Midsommarflicka's here again. With a little trip back the memory lane … at least for me. I think the first and last time I did some cross stitching was in primary school. We had to stitch our initial letter and my grandma helped me. It didn't looked to bad in the end! Can't remember that I ever did it again. Although I really like the look. I like it even more when it's not really stitched but inspired by it and a bit unexpected. This is why I collected a few cross stitch inspired crafts … [Continue reading]
