  • I'm a needlework designer but love to paint also. I remember learning stenciling, and needlework, from my Mother. Imagine a boys room with a stenciled flower border. Yup, not really my style but the memory remains and I cherish it. Now my Mother has nieces to share her craftiness with and I know she would enjoy doing this project with them.

  • The video about the paint sprayer was excellent. I can use it with my handmade cards. I tried regular spray paint and didn't like the results. I'm eager to try it myself.

  • Looks easy to do. Will be going to get some to try tonight!

  • Love the freezer paper stencil, what a great idea!

  • I love the spray effect! This looks like a good project to keep tucked away for a rainy or snowy day!

  • These projects are beautiful . The colors are so playful and fresh, and the idea of the farm theme couldnt be better considering its everything i want out of life? Crafting and Farming!

  • love it!!.. i was just browsing on what to do with nursery/shared room for my baby boy David.. the color schemes.. the theme.. everything.. just love it, im hoping i can pull it off and make it look similar to this.

  • this looks so neat! I can't wait to try it
