I called my dear Irish mom to wish her a happy St. Patty's day and she laughed and told me it's tomorrow! hahahaha-seriously I joke around about never knowing what day it is but apparently it's true! AH well-I can redeem myself by doing some shamrock art for tomorrow's post and I get to leave my rainbow and shamrock window paintings up for another day....Good thing I didn't leave the house in a ridiculous green get-up-my kids are too young to be embarassed too so that's also a plus:)
There is so much cool stuff on ETSY-honestly I have to drag myself away! If you are a creative and in need of some inspiration just head over there-type in some random thing you like in the search box and shebang-a whole bunch of love! I'm mostly inspired by color-I head right for the children's section-:) But-today the inspiration and searching thereafter, came from the love of letters and numbers-Seriously there are people that are just NUTTY about typography. I like it alot-but I'm not a nut. Not about that anyway-maybe trees- a regular Beech nut-OK Enough of being ridiculous. Occasionally on Wednesdays I post about blogs that I love too-and I'm doing that today with Pure + Lovely-she was doing a letter craft DIY yesterday-how perfect!
Here are my ETSY finds for the week of letters and numbers...
VINTAGE IN RETROSPECT: I've always gotta give Detroit a little love-it's my old hometown-so whenever I see cool shops from there I post them! Amanda's art is no exception-and it's green too. She's a dumpster diving diva crafting up some fun, cool, belt buckle bling from recycled license plates-awesome right?! Check it out...

The other day I stumbled across this sweet little blog, quite by accident , as it seems to be with all things. Well, I'm so glad I did-because I just love it!
They are a cute little family-3 kids, a dog, a mortgage, bills-just like the rest of us right?! This blog is about all of it and some fun DIY/home projects and ideas! Their story really spoke to me and I can totally relate to a life just like that!
Had to share because I know you'll like it too!
Yesterday she blogged about how to put your husband to work-oops I mean making big letters out of board in the yard and painting them pretty!
Here's the story...
SEE YOU TOMORROW FOR THURSDAY ART ADDITIONS!
