Hi HowDoesShe Gals!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve just about had it with winter. This has been a record year for snowfall AND freezing temperatures. Yeah. I’m so over it. I am counting down the days until Spring time arrives!! Flowers, grass, birds, WARMTH! I love Spring. I love it enough, that I am not willing to wait until the piles of snow melt to start enjoying some springtime in my home. IShare Crafts has been overflowing with fun and easy home decor projects that are perfect for bringing that little touch of Spring inside – well before that snow disappears

This project is SO awesome. I was amazed by how Amanda’s Crafts made this from…get this…paint chips! So seriously smart. Giving your room a new clock is like giving it a face lift! Who doesn’t want that?
Okay, I know that this round bunting from ‘Pick Up Some Creativity’ is in winter colors, but just use your imagination! Make this in some bright yellows, greens, pinks, or purples and you’ll have a gorgeous spring bunting that you can use over and over again!

Pick a funky-fresh color of fabric and get busy! Here are three fun pillow tutorials that will bring some color and sunshine into your living room!
