Valentine’s Frog Card

My daughter just loves frogs at the moment, so I made her Valentine with a frog just for her!  I got the image offline, it is a free color page.  The I traced it onto white cardstock with sharpie’s and colored it in using colored pencils.  I chalked the edges to add a little bit […]

Valentines Day Love Jar In Every Language

 Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun […]

Princess Party

Hey Everyone!  The love of crafts started with probably sewing for me.  Then it grew…  And grew…  Now it’s such an insanely large part of me.  I’m okay with that…  It keeps me productive!  Anyway, my current craft collection grew so largely due to my love for scrapbooking.  Somewhere along the way, I got distracted […]

Good Times

 I hate thinking of things to do with seemingly random pictures, but this one turned out pretty well.  I framed some of the shots to bring out colors and aligned a stamp on the bottom so it wouldn’t seem like a bare spot. Chief Zoo Keeper loves laughter shots, so I took a few.  We […]

Baby Boy Baby Book

There are no additions coming to the Zoo, but I made this anyway! I thought it was cute! If you like the concept but need one for a Baby Girl, it would be easy to modify the colors for a girl! I went with a Zoo theme, not because I am bias, though I do […]

Gift Bag Re-do!

I’ve seen many super cute gift bags made on different blogs that I thought were super cute. Ya’ll know at the Zoo I can’t throw anything away, so I kept thinking ‘why on earth would they go BUY plain gift bags, when you can just save them!?!’ So the other day I needed a bag, […]

Make Your Own Post Cards

So, I don’t know about you, but I seem to have a little issue with throwing things away!  I always think ‘I could re-use this’ so I keep too much stuff!!!  For example, I have a ‘collection’ of old cards, some from people whom I no longer remember and some from samples I get in […]
