Raggedy Andy ~ with Cyndy

For my project today I decided to make the Raggedy Andy Canister from the JGW Spring Canisters set.  I just love this guy.  I just love the whimsy of Raggedy Ann and Andy!

He makes a pretty sizable box.  He stands over eight inches tall.

He has the cutest face.

I love his pinned heart.

Jodi stayed so true to the character of Andy, he was a joy to make.  I bet you know someone who would love receiving him!  I know I will be making several of these for my family :)

Spring is in the Air

I just love this time of year!  If it weren't for the pollen I would be outside all the time.  Today I decided to make a gardening set.  I used elements from JGW Gaby's Garden.  Such a cute set!

Of course with Spring here, we all know Summer is right around the corner.  With that comes bathing suit season, ugh!  So I thought instead of candy I would put little seed packets in the pot.  Wouldn't this make a nice gift for someone you know who likes to garden.

Plus if you use compostable paper you could add the soil right to the pot with the seeds and plant the whole thing.

I used paper from Graphic 45, Time to Flourish.  This paper is so pretty and has some lovely spring colors.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and it has given you some new ideas to try.  Happy spring.
