We are always looking for ways to decorate the kitchen bulletin board... just a little something to break things up and keep it interesting.  So far, it has been a lot of fun watching the board evolve!  Right now, we are taking advantage of the holidays and seasons.  And as a result, Debbie and I made paper flowers today!  Debbie Doodle brought us a vintage flower-making kit that uses scalloped tissue paper, green wire stems, and that's it!  You fold the bunch of paper, slide it onto the stem, and then ::fluff::.  Debbie remembered that it was sitting on the shelf, and we both took some time to play with it this afternoon.  Loved it!  It was so easy, and so cute!  The flowers turned out great, and they will be amazing decorations!

As you know, April showers bring May flowers, and you can definitely expect our work to be blooming with flowers!

And it was funny because as a piece of tissue would accidentally rip, it became the "he loves me, he loves me not" ritual of pulling petals off of the flower.  And every time a piece would rip, we would say those words.  Luckily though, we both have husbands that love us, and we don't have to mess with silly kids' word games.  Not "for real" at least...
