Sweet and simple flower

Since "real" flowers are a long way off from blooming around here, I made this little pretty--an adaptation of a Babygarten craft. Please read the directions carefully, as it's quite complicated:

First, I colored a popsicle stick green for the stem. Then I cut out the flower and circle pieces from craft foam. Next, I glued everything together. Ta-da! I tucked mine onto a shelf in the kitchen--a cheerful little addition to my cooking area.

this would make a cute gift topper! just read through your "swap" category of posts. just wondering when you and Monica may host another swap. I started reading your blogs since your last swap. I'm anxious to see what you have up your sleeve for the first of spring.

So cute and I could use a touch of spring as well! We just got buried in another snow storm this past weekend!

I love that. It is so springy.

My daughter made something like that a few night ago and I have it hanging on the fridge right now.
