Crazy Quilt Like Fabric Flowers.....

I know, I know...MORE flowers....MORE sewing?!!!! I've always loved to sew...but I've been seriously into it this style sewing....not following the line sewing....I made a bunch of these hand cut flowers (Okay...a lot!) I'm putting some on a layout I'm working on....too cute...I put a few in the shop too! =:O)

You know when you make something...whatever it is....and you look at it and it makes you feel happy? These makes me happy, they are silly, small and they are just so colorful!! Love them!!!
What exciting plans do you have for this weekend? Not a whole lot around here....hopefully we will paint the square on the faux headboard Honey made....he talked me out of Teal =:O( he thought a neutral color would be better...that way I could use any sheets I wanted and it would always match...Doesn't Teal match everything? Isn't it the New neutral? Oh Well...neutral is...well, I wont say...
Off to make bun less, Turkey Burgers and corn on the cob, YUM!
Have a blast....

Yo-Yo Crazy??!!

It was a pretty quiet weekend around here. I even got to sleep in on Saturday!!! We rented a couple of movies...Avatar (loved it, wish I had seen it on the big screen now!) and The Bad Lieutenant (Hated it, no really Hated it!) and while we watched....I sewed and sewed these little yo-yo's. At one point my Honey said..."How many of those things do you need?" A lot...I'm sure of it! How many? I don't know...just lots and lots!! What am I gonna make with them? Flowers, for sure...maybe hair clips...maybe scrapbook embellishments...who knows..I just had to make them. My Daughter wanted to learn too...and she did and then made several herself!

I also started Weight Watchers! I definitely need to get this extra weight off me. Its so boring being over-weight. I hate it. So....I'm gonna work it...I planned the meals, I went grocery shopping! With me, if I plan...Its easy, peasy...If I don't....well, not so much. Tonight for Dinner...London Broil that's been marinating since yesterday and oven-roasted Beets and Garlic..YUM! I'll have to make another veggie too, since I'm not sure the Kiddos will like Beets, then again...ya never know! What exciting thing did you do or was your weekend quiet too!?
Hope your Monday is happy!!

More Than Enough!!

It’s been a while since I made an ATC or ACEO….its even been a longer time since I’ve made a Fairy Tear Bear!! I decided to make one this week and boy…did it take me longer than expected...I'd forgotten how much effort these little bears take!!
I think the end result turned out pretty cute thou...

The title for this Fairy Bear ATC is a little reminder that I think We ALL forget sometimes... the knowledge and belief that we are, already, More Than Enough...remember that...
You can get all the details for this card on the P K Glitz blog and a close up of all that sparkle!!!!
If you would like to see some of my other Tear Bear Fairy ATCs / ACEOs click here, here and here!
I hope you have a "beary" spectacular day and a fabulous weekend! Do you have any plans? Something fun????????

I've been sewing!!!!

I feel like I've neglected you my dear blog friends, I haven't meant to but I've been keeping busy and it seems the week is gone before it starts! I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek into what I've been working on! =:O) I've been sewing all sorts of things! I love sewing...I love the completed project at the end too! No matter how small!

Like these adorable little pillows! They are only about 8" x 5" but they pack a BIG punch of color and make me feel happy!

My Girls keep coming in the "craft shack" and try to steal them. They said they would be perfect in their rooms....I've been making some more flowers too! Pretty yummy flowers and I've cut a ton of circles from pretty fabric to make some yo-yo flowers!

See, I've just been busy...Starting in May...I'm going to load up my etsy store and keep it stocked up on new projects and interesting bits of goodness! That's my New goal! So be sure to come back and check it out!! We're also trying to re-vamp the house, on a serious budget...Okay a tiny, tiny, barely there at all start Honey is working on this headboard that was shown on the blog, Be Different...Act Normal (one of my favorite blogs!) as we speak! My Kids bought us a HUGE, de-lish-ish, bed for Christmas but with funds a little tight right now we cant afford to buy a new headboard...have no fear...Honey is near!!! I'm super excited and can't wait till he is done. We are going to paint inside the square...Teal...*swoon*!
Well, I'm off...I need to make a scrapbook page with some happy glitter....

1st Day of School! is still hard to believe that this year I have a High School Senior, a new Middle Schooler and 1 still in Elementary at home...where did all the time go???? My picture is not that good, as always, its my biggest complaint...I hate my point and shoot! The colors in real life are vibrant and the sparkle from the yummy glitter is amazing...I did ask Honey for a new camera for my hopefully he's saving his pennies! =:O)

Spring Break is over. The Kids had sleepovers, here and there. We saw Alice in Wonderland. Played in the park. Went into the City one day and hung out at the Wharf and the Pier. Ate too much junk. Went to bed too late and slept in too long and now to its time to get them back into schedule....and the rain is back. How great is that it waited till the end of the break....
I did this page for the P K Glitz blog and you can find all the details over there!! =:O)
I hope you had a fabulous week and next week is nothing but better!

Tin Transformation!

I did this tutorial for the P K Glitz blog and thought I'd share it here too!!

We've all had something that came in a little tin, mints, buttons, ect., don't throw away those tins, reuse them but make them prettier!! (You can also buy brand new tins online or I've seen them at Michaels) Today I'm using a small round tin.

First gather up your supplies: Glitter, Sticky tape, I'm using 1/4" (both of those items you can get at P K Glitz!) =:O). Tin, scrapbook paper, ribbon and small embellishment.

Run the sticky tape along the outside rim of the top lid going all the way around and peel away the protective layer.

Glitter up the sticky tape by pouring generous amounts of glitter on it. Brush off any excess glitter to save.

Next you'll want to cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit the bottom side of the tin and run all the way around. Apply it to the tin using the sticky tape.

Now you're almost done! Fill the tin with a little treat (I used M&M's) or somethin' somethin' and tie a pretty ribbon around it. Add a little embellishment on top, I used my vintage dictionary buttons found here but you can use a tag, a flower, whatever suits you and adorable little treat tin, perfect for a million reasons!!

Here is another view!

Fun Huh?! I would love to see any tins you decorate!!!!
The Kids are going to be tie-dying some shirts today and hopefully we will then head off to the park for some swinging....Hope your day is fabulous!!
