Love being crafty...


Hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas and Safe and Happy New Year!!!!  I must say mine was fabulous.  I just love the holidays and being surrounded by family. 

Well not only have I been eating ENTIRELY too much but I have been busy doing more productive things as well.  I was fortunate enough to have had the week between Christmas and the New Year off of work so I was able to play in my "Craft Room"  as my husband would call it. 

This is a set a of coasters I experimented with and I must say I'm so glad I made them for myself. 
LOVE 'EM!!!!

They were so easy....
I just took .16 cent tiles from your local Lowe's and mod-podged some gift wrapping tissue on and stuck some vinyl lettering on and VIOLA!!!  I would also recommend sealing them with a polyurethane spray just to keep them preserved and I think it's more professional to sell a finished project.


Just another close up!!  I actually posted these on my facebook and have 2 orders for them.  I just fell absolutely in love with them!!!


Here is a garland or banner whatever you want to call it that I'm doing for a baby shower.  This is actually half of the order because it's TWINS!! The other is just alike but the name is ELLYOT!  I love doing these!!




I have also been working on fabric flower headbands and barrettes..pictures coming soon.

Thanks for stopping by!
