Jute Flower Bouquet (in the Spotlight)

I feel as though I've started every post within the last month
telling you how busy I am. 
Blah, blah, blah.  I feel like a broken record. 

So today, let's forget about all that and get on with our
Newbie Spotlight of the Week, okay? 

This week's Newbie Spolight of the Week goes to.............


Morena shares some pretty fabulous projects
and includes the tutorials as well. 
She is all about fast and frugal creations.  
Who doesn't love fast & frugal when the results are so fantastic?     

Take a look at this Jute Flower Bouquet...

Pretty darn fantastic, huh?

I also have a soft spot for this little bottle she made
in honor of the passing of children's author, Maurice Sendak. 
It's Mickey from In The Night Kitchen. 

Pretty darn cute!

Anyway, head on over to Morena's Corner and take a look at all she has to share.

Morena, feel free to grab this button...
