How this for a color Thrifty Thursday idea...and its FREE for my Bloggeritaville friends....
The magical minds at Crayola have devised a way to turn your kids memories into customized coloring book pages. To see the transformation register and the upload your digital photos at www.crayola.com/colorme
Try if for free anytime, but you need a code-in specially marked boxes of crayons ($5.00 for a box of 48)- to print your creations. But Bloggeritaville readers, you are in luck....You can make printouts for 24 hours following your registration using the code: PR24QCHT.
We had a field day with this project. We chose pictures that were not to jumbled, which was our personal choice and printed the coloring pages out. We then took advantage of this gorgeous Spring weather and took our artwork outside to complete. We used Crayola colored pencils as well as crayons for our projects and then framed them in $3.00 Walmart Frames.
Thrifty Custom Artwork for your home. What can be better?
(Am having Blogger trouble loading my final pics, the coloring pages. Will continue to work on the problem, in the meantime you can check the Crayola website for before and after examples).
For my final thrifty treasures share, I wanted to show you what I found at the thrift store just after Christmas....
He's a moss covered bunny and he cost me $6.88. Pricey for the thrift, but to me worth it. I don't use alot of "Easter" decor, I lean more towards spring because I don't want the meaning do get lost in what Easter is about. But this bunny I adore. And I can use on into spring. I have named him Oliver. He's perfect for my Easter tablescape this Sunday!
Speaking of tablescapes...
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
