Freshly Ground Coffee Shaker – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning everyone!

We haven’t posted here for a week as I enjoyed time with family.  All of our children and grandchildren were home last week and I didn’t want to miss a minute with them. We had a wonderful week and the empty feeling when everyone leaves just can not be explained. But we were so grateful for the time everyone was together. And now it’s back to the daily grind – pun intended! Check out Holly’s Freshly Ground Shaker:

I thought this was so creative!

Holly used both sizes of our JAVA cup to create her window shaker and filled it with ground coffee. She said it smells divine and I can only imagine!

And the combination of coffee themed and woodgrain paper is absolutely striking!

Holly creatively used the steam atop the acetate for a lovely effect.

Having two sizes of the same cup in the die set makes this so easy to create!!!

I am super loving this and can’t wait to try one myself as I know so many who would LOVE it!!!

You can find Holly’s posts on her blog here.
