Something Pretty

This morning I woke up with an urge to make something pretty...

so I did!


I made a mobile full of butterflies, ladybugs, and birds and put it together with things I found around the house like fishing wire, a CD, ribbon, and a pretty pink button.

Isn't it fun making something with stuff you find just lying around the house?

I think the most beautiful thing about this is how simple it is. Probably everyone reading this blog has items resembling these in their home, but we stop ourselves short from making them into something special, picking from one of a dozen different excuses. I really admire you for not sidelining yourself from the glory that a creative life has to offer. Bravissima :)

Awww you are so sweet Cathlene Bell!!

melissa said...

Katie, you are awesome, and everyday I'm more convinced about that.
I love butterflies, and I have tooooons of old CD, so I'm going to try something like this.

Love ypu!!
