Garden Variety



For those of you who know me fairly well, you will know my next love after crafting is gardening. Why do I live in such a snowy climate when I love to be out digging in the dirt, not in the snow? I have no idea!

The two projects shown above are made using the brand new Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety line. You can see that the set of boxes I created are surely garden related. What better way to store all your garden seed, gloves, and tools than in beautifully decorated boxes you can actully display inside your house!

The second project is a little birdhouse that I altered using the new Garden Variety line. Notice the detail work in the roof shingles. It looks like it would take a lot of work but I simply used a punch and then stuck them on the roof one at a time. I love altering bird houses!
