Reader spotlight – and more silhouettes!

Happy Friday! It’s cool and dreary here, so uncharacteristic for this time of year! I hope everyone is slated for a marvelous weekend.
Today’s reader spotlight is shining on the Positively Splendid reader who was the lucky winner of our Framed Silhouette Vignette giveaway.
Spending some time at Beth’s blog, you’ll see she has talent that spans from cooking, baking and gardening to paper crafting. I always have such fun perusing the archives of blogs to discover a wealth of fabulous ideas, and hers is chock full of inspiration.
Being the quick bread fanatic that I am, this recipe for Cranberry Bread is certainly going to be on tap here once cranberries come back in season…

And you must see this darling little cupcake gift card holder. 
Pull up the cherry…

…to reveal your concealed card. So clever!

Her creative method for keeping unwanted feline visitors from wrecking her garden gave me a good chuckle!

I adore this idea to create a set of jars to help little ones gain an understanding of how to handle their money wisely! She created a set for each of her kiddos, and I think I will be following suit to do the same for mine.

I hope you’ll take some time this weekend to head over to Beth’s place for a visit! It is a delight!

Beth, feel free to grab this button to display on your blog if you would like!


For Beth’s vignette, she requested I use a vivid pink and green color scheme framed in black. This girl speaks my language when it comes to color! It was such a pleasure to put this together for her, and I hope she will enjoy it for many years to come!

A happy and safe weekend to all!

    I love the garden stealth! I need something like that for squirrels. And that cupcake project is adorable. Great highlight!!

    Your blog is incredibly creative! I was just thinking about silhouette art earlier today as I watched my kiddos grow before my eyes.

    I’m stopping by to invite you over to the Arkansas Women Bloggers site. We’d love to have you link up with us. We’re also always looking for guest posters if you’re interested.

    I love the fork idea. Maybe that would keep the rabbits out of my flowers and keep them from digging them up while they dust themselves in the flower dirt.

    That cranberry bread looks delish, and I’m excited to visit another new blog. Thanks for posting!
