I spilled the beans!!

I’m sharing the easy step-by-step over at My Crafty Spot today!  Stop over to see how quick and easy these bean vases are to make!

As always … thank ya’ for stopping by!  I’m trying to finish up a couple ‘personal’ posts to share in the next couple weeks.  Ben’s birth story, Our Wisconsin Vaca highlights, and ‘Life with Three Little Ones’.  Any preference on which one first?  (or … skip ‘em all and stick with the craftiness?!?).

Happy Tuesday …
