Welcome to my little corner of the world. Here you'll find a little about me, a lot about my crafts, and an occasional funny story or two about the joys of being a mom.
My best friend Carla and I got together this summer for a girl's weekend. No kids. No hubbies. Just time to talk and craft, drink coffee leisurely (what's that?), sleep in. It was SO much fun. We decided it was going to have to be a yearly retreat for us! Here are some of my jewelry pieces I made that weekend.
Hard to tell from this picture, but these beads are maroon. I refer to them as my Aggie earrings and bracelet! (Now I need to make an Aggie necklace to go with them!)
Fabric Flower PinsThese are flower pins I made using my big shot machine and die cut. They are so cute attached to a purse or tote bag. I've made some with fall fabrics, halloween fabrics. The possiblities are endless. And they are actually pretty easy to make! Here I used four different pieces of denim for the blue jean one, and four different shades of yellow for the sunflower.
Hair Bow HoldersMy best friend asked me to make her a bow and ribbon holder for her (adorable) daughter, Ashlyn. Right now, she shares a room with her brother, so we didn't want it to look super girly. So we went with a red, white and black lady bug theme. Thought they turned out cute! (The ladybug holder has a spot to add a picture, which hasn't been added yet!)
Beading!!!I've started teaching myself how to make jewelry. Here are a couple of my very first trys. I also want to try making some beaded crosses. I saw one at a friends house recently and thought it was so pretty. I googled "beaded crosses" and found a really neat website, Rustique Art. She has some gorgeous examples.
My cousin Stacey asked me to paint a stool for her classroom of first graders.
