speaking of not enough time…my husband got a good laugh at this the other night…what can i say, i’m a multitasker.
baking cookies for work/ironing freezer paper letters/painting the letters in our lil kitchen=awesome.
i also did some super cute earrings with the fun rosettes. they make me smile…see…

so sometimes i love short cuts…well all the time, but sometimes they are not necessary. :) and this is one awesome, easy/fast tutorial from Chickpea Sewing Studio on how to make a Christmas tree skirt. i have been wanting to make one but…no time ;) and i didn’t want to go out and buy one. sooo instead of using felt, i used an old red bed sheet that i randomly kept. and of course used iron on velcro. can’t get any better than that. haha maybe i’ll add some fun Christmas decor or ribbon on it later. i’m liking the simplistic look though.Christmas tree skirtalso…almost done with Christmas cards!!! it’ll be our first one to send to fam. :) here are some fun pics….i’ll show the actual pic until later.
stay tuned, they are fun :) i got the cute idea from Jessica @ Happy Together. she’s so creative. i love them!

Category: everyday | December 2nd, 2009

(well not counting all the fabulous elementary school ornaments i made…which all look amazing. haha). i am in love with this lil nugget. so thankful for miss Betz White who lovingly posted a tutorial on how to make these beauties. i adore them. i adore them so much i made myself an ornament….some on a headband…a bobby pin…and even a ring (this one is for Tiffany). can’t get enough of these…i’m sure you’ll be seeing these for awhile.

meet betty! she’s a brightly colored, fun, and exciting…headband. : )

Autumn, over at Cinnamon Sticks, and I spent a lovely morning together with crafts and coffee. coffee makes crafting better.  we had our inspiration from another feather headband over at Craftstylish. but we decided to skip the sewing parts, and we did not have any buckram (still not sure what that even is). we used the oh so helpful felt as our platform. then glued on some feathers and a cool button or two or three and poof! you have a betty!

you can wear it like a traditional headband or if you are in a 20’s mood around the forehead. either way it looks fab!

this is clearly an every day accessory…clearly. be sure to check out Cinnamon Sticks to see her fun color scheme too! have a fabulous day!!!

peace and love
