Spring Wrap Up

Unbelievably Beautiful Spring! Before heading into a summer swelter of fun, catch your breath and review some of the Spring projects at I Gotta Create!

I share a crafty version of the ever-present spring dandelion by using pom-poms, which are also used to...

...to top off these festively fun DIY Party Hats! 
{Just in time for my 1st blog anniversary!}

I share a tutorial and several variations of these beautiful silk flower pins for Mothers Day, teacher appreciation, showers, thank-you's and more.

Silk flowers also become 'bows' for these gorgeous Mod Podged canisters. Scrap strips of paper and recycled hot chocolate or raisin cans never looked so great!

This printable fabric tutorial shows you how to add sass, charm and style to any apron.  

There is something for the guys, too. Fathers Day is coming up, so I show you how to emboss gift boxes...

...and completed the theme with a fun "3D" Cowboy Card that you can also make yourself.

Use real wood to create these sweet 'twiggy nest' party bowls. These are part of my nesting series for the spring...

...and as different as these nests look, they both start with the same plastic pudding cup as the base. 

Here's a note of mystery ... We're playing a guessing game until I post the tutorial!

One of you won a porcelain enamel address sign from Ramsign! Thanks for playing along. You all are #1 to me!

And of course, we strut our stuff at my themed linky parties every Wednesday at 7pm CST!

An artist from linky party is specially highlighted as part of the Inspiring Creative Women interview series. The interview with Lizy B Bakes is right *here*!

What a great idea to do a "season wrap-up post"! I'm tucking that one away for a rainy day when I have nothing to blog about! Thanks so much for sharing on Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust, & Pixie Dust.

Warmly, Michelle
