giveaway prize

I love yellow and gray together. This headband went to Kristen for a giveaway prize. I love how it turned out and can't figure out why I didn't make one for myself.

late night crafting

My bedroom floor turned into craft zone tonight. Co-worker Alyssa needs some flowers for her sister's wedding later his week. Turns out crafting because I have to isn't as much fun as crafting because I want to. I think they turned out pretty cute even though it's late night crafting.

gumdrop wreath hung

It's finally on the door. I'm scared it's going to be on the ground when I get home tomorrow. It turned out so cute, but I'm not sure I would recommend making it.

Spring Break Craft Day

Yesterday was craft day at co-worker Kimber's house. Aly found a tutorial (which i will post as soon as i find it) for these very cute skirts, and we have been dreaming of spring break ever since. We spent the day crafting and sewing and laughing and having fun. I love having such fun co-workers.

i'm pretty proud of my first attempt at sewing apparel. the skirt was actually pretty easy, and i can't wait to make another one with aly tomorrow.

Baby Wipes Cases

Homemade baby gifts are so much better if you ask me (the person with no kids). Making things cuter is always better too. My newest favorite is baby wipes cases. They are so easy and so cute.

1. cover top of case with batting, doesn't have to be exact but you don't want it to hang over the edge. hot glue down.
2. cut material to cover top and bottom. i usually trace around the edge of the case.
3. hot glue material to top and bottom. make sure you don't glue the case shut.

4. hot glue ribbon around the edges (2 ribbons. 1 for the top and 1 for the bottom). embellish with ribbon, flowers, etc.

there you have it... cute homemade baby gift

Recent Crafts

Isn't this the cutest little tyke you have ever seen? Cole started having seizures when he was 10 months old. His family recently found out he is going to have brain surgery next month in Ohio. Everyone has high hopes that this surgery will change Cole's life for the better. Cole's parents are organizing some fundraisers to help offset the cost of the coming months.

I spent the weekend making some crafts for the silent auction they are planning in the next couple of weeks. Go here to read all about Cole, his story, and what you can do to help (silent auction, 5k, concert).

flower headbands

I dropped off the stuff I made to Cole's mom yesterday. She was so sweet and appreciative, and I know she and her husband would appreciate help from others.
