Thinking Spring!

Good afternoon everyone and hope you've been busy creating new Spring crafts! I, like many others of you have had the "blahs" after the holidays. (I'm supposed to be taking some much needed time off, LOL!) So this morning I decided to burn one of my Coffee Cup Tart warmers to get my spirits lifted. I wanted some nice Spring smelling tarts so I chose "Cinnamon Spice" to get my creative juices flowing. (Yes, I love cinnamon scents too for Valentine's Day crafts.) I have many different kinds of tart warmers but I love the coffee cup warmers for my crafting rooms. They're the perfect desktop size and don't get in your way. Here's a pic of a large plain white cup warmer I'm using this morning...

And here's how they work with a tea light....

I have two types of these cup warmers too...

That one shows a cute Donut tart scented in Apple Jack & Peel. The other cup warmers I have like this one is a rounded cup but with same "Coffee" design. (Also notice that absolute doily I got from Rebecca at Rebecca's Creations! I just love her work, she is so talented and makes so many wonderful creations.) But burning my tarts really got my juices flowing and I'm working on a new project today for Spring, yippee! I also saw some things on the net I wanted to make this year for Spring, the Seed Packets. If you'll visit APJ forum (link in right side menu) you'll see where I've posted lots of links for those. There are printable templates for making your own and some have the seed packet graphics already on them. I think the Friendship Seed Packets and the Seed Packet hangers are so cute and prim, very easy to make! And after Valentine's Day is past I want to use them to make cute ornies for a Spring themed prim tree. Well, enough of my chattering for now....I have to get busy so go to the APJ forum and check out those links. Get your tart warmer going with your favorite Spring scented tarts to shed the Winter "blahs!" May everyone have a wonderful prim crafting day!

Hugs, Libby
