Current and Michaels Haul - Create in advance

I like to prepare well in advance
for special events and occasions.

Spring and Summer is when I plan for the Holidays. It keeps on track and on budget.
This Spring and Summer, I'll show you a few ideas that are budget friendly. 
Spring Notecards, gemstones, flatbacks, spring ribbon, holiday stationery from Current Factory Outlet and Michaels
Visiting 2nd hand stores, consignment shops, outlet stores and flea markets can be fun.
There is a lot of treasures to be found, June is Noami at home, I'll share
some really cute ideas that have come out of those finds.

Mother's Day DIY - Vintage Vase

I love that Mother's Day falls in the Spring.
It means creating something special for all the mom's in your life.

A little over a month ago, my sister sent my mom this beautiful vase she found. I'm all for 2nd hand, vintage consignment shops, there are always great finds to be found. My mom wanted to dress up the vase for home decor or table centerpiece. I was able to find flowers and floral accessories at Michaels all for under $20. It was their big Spring sale. It turned out to be a lovely Spring Floral Vase, my favorite part is the green bird, can you find it?
