Here are the Creativity Sisters' project picks of the week:

Inspiration JarsMy pick from FaveCrafts.com this week is Inspiration Jars by Tammie Wilson for Delta. they are very pretty and bright glass jars painted with PermEnamel transparent glass paint and inspired stenciled words.>>Heidi

CD Egret on Pizza BoxThis Pizza Box Art is from one of my favorite designers - Heidi Borchers. (Ok so she also happens to be my sister!) This is a wonderful recycling project that looks like art. It is made from a pizza box, cereal box, some paper towels and CD's. It's fun, it's easy for any age and it is made from all recycled materials. Check it out! >>Candace
 Summer Crafts for KidsMy pick from FaveCrafts.com this week is Summer Crafts for Kids e-book. This e-book is filled with 22 summer craft ideas for the kids including wearables, paper crafts and homemade toys. How about spending some time crafting with your kids this summer! >>Tiffany

My project pick of the week is from Tipnut.com and Tape Transfercomes from MollyLikestoDraw.blogspot.com. In this project, you use packing tape and magazine pictures to make picture transfers for collage. I can't wait to try this! >>Candace

Mason Jar and Twine VasesMy project pick this week comes from Vickie Howell's blog. It's the cutest Mason Jar and Twine Vases. I love the natural feel of these vases with the bright flowers. Breathing new life into mason jars with natural twine, these cuties are perfect for the summer picnic table.>>Tiff

Go Go Green Title
Compact Fluorescent Light BulbOur challenge from Green Doreen Liccione this week is to make the switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs.  Did you know that a CFL will save about $30 over its lifetime and pay for itself in about 6 months. It uses 75 percent less energy and lasts about 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb. If that's not enough to convince you, did you know that replacing 1 regular bulb with a CFL would eliminate the same emissions created by 1 million cars. Make the switch!
