ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

First Trendy Twine Design Team Post!

Did you know that I'm a Trendy Gal??? 
Yes, that's right and No, Lesley, you can't take it back. Today, I make it official with my first post for Trendy Twine as a design team member! 

My fellow Trendy Gals and I are sporting the Berry Trendy Twine on this months Patriotic projects. For my project I decided to alter a popcorn box. I've used Washi tape from Annie's Paper Boutique to wrap around the top and bottom of the box then tied the opening closed with navy grosgrain ribbon, I then created 3 felt star fireworks with tendrils of the Berry Red and Berry Blue twine and finished the project with a Thank You tag using My Creative Time dies and stamps.

This would be a great 4th of July party favor.

I hope you'll stop by the Trendy Twine blog and join us for this months challenge HERE.
