I'm back!

It's been forever since I posted anything! I wasn't feeling good last week, and was just Blah. I feel better today, so hopefully I can get some stuff done!

I ordered Mia an ADORABLE dress on Etsy, and have my eye and a few for Ella, but the wallet will not allow it for a couple weeks. :(

I received my swap from the "winning hand" swap I was in, and just love the little kitty she made me!

Thank goodness all my Easter swaps are done and sent. I've been working on Easter stuff for so long, I'm almost over it and it's not even here yet, lol! Here are the pics of what I sent:

Not sure what I am going to get into today. I think I might work on some Christmas stuff, LOL!!! I will post pics tomorrow if I get anything done today. Have a great day!

It's almost the weekend!

Sorry it's been a while since I posted! I haven't felt good the past couple days, not sure what is wrong. I may just be stressed. For some reason, I am super stressed about all the swaps I am in! I'm feeling very overwhelmed, and to tell you the truth cannot wait till they are done. :( Once the Easter stuff is sent out (hopefully this weekend) I'm going to take a break from swapping for a bit.

I got my bag from the handmade bag swap on swap-bot I am in and love it! It's from Italy, and she sent me a cute little tin of candy! I love getting things from different countries, it's so mysterious!

I finished the "Charming Handbag" for the swap I am in. I hope she likes it.

I wish I could show you all my Easter goodies I am sending my partners, but I want to wait till they get them in the mail. :)

I finally finished the handmade diorama for the swap I am in, what do you think??

Have a good day!

Shabby Crown!!!!!!

I am SOOOOOOO excited about what I made! I worked all day and well into the night, with glitter from head to toe, (and all over the house!) and finished the birthday crown! I just added them to my Etsy store! The girls have demanded one for their birthdays! So I hope that is a good sign. Lot's of glitter and crepe paper, perfect for a birthday! I think I may make one in pink and blue next. What do you think???? I would love some feedback!

If you remember a couple posts back, I bought a paper doll book at an antique store. I decided to alter her dress a bit, and she is soooo cute! Not sure what I will do with her, but there she is, lol.

Have a great weekend!

Another easter box...

I worked on this box all night, and LOVE how it turned out! I just added it to my Etsy store.

I finished my tote for the handmade tote swap I am in, I hope she likes it! (I managed to make ANOTHER fabric flower. I cannot help it, they are so easy and so cute!

Oh, I forgot to post that I finally bought this pattern that I have been drooling over for ages! I think the reason I held off so long is that I am afraid to make it, lol! But I plan on making lots of cute dresses for the girls!

Have to work tonight, so I will not have any time to craft :( Maybe tomorrow....

Lots of new stuff

It's been a while since I posted! Sorry, it's been a busy couple of days! I recieved my goodies from the "my favorite things" swap I was in, and just love everything! I LOVE Sephora, but do not get to shop there very often. Thank you Julie!

Her blog is:

I sent out my goodies for "The winning hand" swap I was in, and boy was that hard! Trying to find things in the 4 suits was very difficult.

I added some more goodies to my Etsy store!

I cannot get enough of those cute boxes!

I made a cute skirt (modified a bit) from a free pattern from Oliver + S blog, and it was ment for Ella, but after it was done and I put it on her, it was just way to big, so now Big sis Mia gets it! I made a matching headband to go with it. Do you think I have a problem with headbands??? LOL! I think my count on headbands now is 9! The girls are tired of trying them on.

I snapped a couple of pics of Ella yesterday, it was unusually hot, so it was a great day to go outside. Ella wanted to wear her flip flops, and kept walking out of them, lol. She needs to get her summer feet!

Have a good day!

Easter boxes...

I just finished and added these cute boxes to my Etsy store! I had originally made them for my swap partner, but really loved how they turned out so I made some for me and some to put in my store! What do you think???

I finished my egg I have been working on and am very happy with the result:

And I found a spot to put all my glittered Easter eggs. I decided against making a garland, I tried stringing the eggs, but couldn't get the wire through.

Hubby got me a Polarizing filter and a new lens for my camera last night and I am beside myself!!!!!!! Thanks hubby!

We went to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus last night and let me tell you it sure has changed since I was a kid! Not quiet sure I liked it. There were lots and lots of girls with barely any clothes on dancing around too provocatively, I think I counted 5 clowns, and everything there was way too expensive! Cotton candy was TEN DOLLARS!!!!!! Can you imagine??? Of course Ella did not understand that we were not going to pay that much and cried for 20 minutes. The girls enjoyed themselves, and it was a long show (2 hours) but it didn't seem like the circus, more of a long choreographed show. Oh well. Nothing is like it used to be. Not sure what I am getting into this weekend, but if I get anything done I will post! TGIF!

More headbands...

I haven't had much time to craft in the past couple days, but I did
manage to finish a couple headbands. I am totally addicted to them! They are so easy and cute, and the girls seem to like them.

I got my Coffee ATC from my swap partner the other day, and it is so neat! I am VERY new to ATC, and not really sure what you do with them once they are made, but they are fun anyway.

I sent out my goodies for my swap partner in the Pink and yellow swap:

I went to Hobby Lobby today and got a bunch of Easter stuff, so I hope to get some crafting done tonight. :)
