Flower Fever :o

Literally! I think I mentioned that I had been a little under the weather ...yep I think it was flower fever. I am better now but I felt so bad I did not feel like doing anything but sitting in bed and watching TV....well that got old real quick! so I sat in bed, watched TV and made flowers.... Now I have a pile of fabric flowers that I have to figure out what to do with : / but aren't they pretty!

I put pin backs on some and sent them to friends. I think I might decorate some tee shirts and jeans with them too. They are so easy and I thought you might like to make some too!

I just folded a square of fabric in quarters, folded the top square section back to form a point, folded the bottom square section the same way so the whole thing was folded to a point. Then cut the top into a petal shape, unfold and you have a flower shape. Scrunch it in the center and tack it in place by hand. Do this in several sizes and layer them up. I did the same with a nylon sheer fabric and alternated the layers. I think it really made a difference.

OOPS! Free Vintage Postacard Printable Clipart

This is one of my favorite little images. I don't think it is just because the little girl is so cute but because of the response she brings about in my grandson. She is on one of the charms on a bracelet I made. Every time I wear it, my grand baby has to look at each charm. When he gets to the one with her image on it he will cover his mouth and mimic the little girl on the charm. It is just so cute it has endeared me to the image. I hope you enjoy her as much as I have!

For The Love Of Theater

I have been under the weather so I have not done much of anything but sleep. As I was looking thought my pictures I realized that I had not blogged this. I think I had planned on saving it because I am working on a new free workshop for little theaters and some of the pictures taken during the construction of this one will be use. But I decided to share it because I have also finished another little theater I can share when I get the workshop finished.
This on was also done from a reclaimed drawer out of an old jewelry box. I used my dremel to expand the hole into a slot where the nob was. That way the little puppet can be lowered through the slot and the little handle can be used to make her dance.

Step by step instruction will be posted as soon as I can get up and around enough to finish writing them :)

My Little Monster Man

The other day I was visiting Totally Tutorials Blog and they had the cutest tutorial for making monster valentine cards by Art, Adventures, and Toddler. My grandbaby was visiting and when the little monster saw the monsters on the computer he of coarse wanted some. So I had the idea to make the little monsters more toddler friendly.

I just cut out two and added a little batting and a magnet. He played with them for hours! Luckily our coffee table is metal. I am not really an accomplished monster seamstress so they don't look quite as precise as the tutorial but our little monster was happy! He had on some little cargo paints that day and it was not long before he had one stuffed in each pant pocket :)

Diva Dolls

I know I have been a little quite but I have been busy working on a fun project for the local stamping club I attend...Designing Diva's. This month it was my turn to present the project. I had seen these little Victorian paper dolls and decided it would be such a fun project for valentines day.... then I thought if we were going to do dolls they should have our faces! So I got to work making a personalized paper doll for each one of us ... but only some are represented here.

What a fun evening we had! but really I was giggling all week as I designed each doll. I could hardly wait for last night so I could reveal "the girls" It was so worth the wait though as each doll was revealed to the giggles and squeals of our Diva's The lighting was not great but they all turned out so cute

Now you can be a real doll too! ... available in my etsy store!
