From My Garden Mini album

This is my version of the mini designed by Kathy Orta of Paper Phenomena.   She's so talented. I changed  the sizing and the way the easel part opens up. The paper collection is called Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket. It's so cheerful! And I bought all the supplies for this at The Front Desk in Newport, Vermont. Lots of spots for recipes and the flip part can be used to put in those pictures of your vegetable gardens! I know you have some!
I like the way this leans back when it's open so you can see the recipes easier.

Maple syrup sap bucket as a wedding card holder...

 Erin said she wanted something different for her outdoor wedding in September....and gave me carte blanche to do anything I wanted; to be creative. Her colors are brown and orange.  I had an antique (1901) sap bucket lid and borrowed the bucket for the occasion. (We'll give it back, Roger, I promise.) Then just glimmer misted some dried flowers mixed with some silks and a pretty pull knob from the Tim Holtz stash and a little bit of  hot glue. I sure hope she likes it. When the wedding is over she can release the top from the bucket (and return the bucket with a big thank you to ROGER) and hang the lid as a wall decoration if she wants. Congratulations on your wedding, Erin!!

I got the glimmer mist, hot glue and glue gun, and the Tim Holtz pull knob at The Front Desk, in Newport, Vt.
