I have been having so much fun creating lately...I love seeing an idea online and being able to recreate it!!! Like I accomplished something! Here are some of my recent creations!
This is a headband I made for a birthday gift for my friend at work. She is a fitness instructor, so I thought it might be fun to have something pretty for her hair but that was practical, too.

I also made this scarf for my friend's birthday. I had promised to make her this in January...ooops! Hope ruffles are still in next winter! I used scraps from this project to make the headband.
This is a yoga mat strap which I also made for my friend. She uses a yoga mat when she teaches, so I thought this would be practical (and cute!!) for her.
Here's a more up close view...I made button holes to turn the fabric into the loops. I never knew buttonholes could be so easy!!!
Here is a doll I made for Mr. B. This was my first boy doll...I think it turned out kinda cute...I just love the tie! :)
Here is a dolly for Miss. N. (Sorry about the poor quality of the dolly pictures...I made these (and gave them to the recipients) at an overnighter for my mom's group. I thought the pictures turned out pretty decent for taking them at 2 am with my phone! hehehe)
These are the tissue paper pom-poms I made for Sapphira's party. They are so fun and cheery! I think I will hang the white and pink ones above her crib.
I finished this wreath this afternoon. These are some silk flowers from our wedding. They have been sitting around for almost 8 years now and I finally found something to do with them. I covered the Styrofoam wreath with the leaves from the bouquet and then put globs of hot glue every so often and smooshed the flowers into the glue...so precise and technical! :) I just love the way this turned out!
Thanks for humoring me!! Have a great day!!!
