When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other. – Chinese Proverb

Inspired by her mother’s love for gardening and her constant need for different-sized vases, Heather of WhipperBerry took out her DIY kit and explored the possibilities of colorful paint applied with an open heart. Using the Martha Stewart Crafts Paint by Plaid, you can dip your way to fabulous decor. You will also get a chance to exercise your patience. Just wait and you’ll see what I mean…

Inspired to Create the Surrounding Space

Heather teaches us how to use creativity to expand our visual universe. She created these serene, easy-to-make vases as a mother’s day gift and inspired us to share her passion and thoughtfulness in hope that you will find time for your own little project.
