I hope maybe I have inspired some of you to try something new. It's always fun to add different techniques to your projects, it keeps them fresh and uniquely yours. Have fun, and if you have any questions feel free to comment, or email me, I would love to hear from you!
Hello everyone, I have been working on cards this last week. I need to replenish my stock at a cute little store in town where I sell my cards, so I thought I would share some of them with you. I wan t to give credit to a book that I have fallen in love with, also. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I had to order it on line, and wait for it to come, but it was everything I anticipated, and more. I bet you are wishing I would just get on with it....what is the name of this wonderful book??? Origami Card Craft, by Karen Elaine Thomas. I know, some of you may be saying, "Origami, I tried that once and it is too complicated for me", but trust me, these are fairly simple and very well explained and illustrated. I have some examples of my favorite one, and there are many more.

I really want this blog to be seen by someone! I don't know how to get it out out there. I want to do my first tutorial on a baby bonnet that turns into a bib for little babies, and then I have one that can go all the way up to a three to four year old, and it can be turned into a pinafore apron. They are so adorable, and the thing I like about them is they are simple and easy to wash and wear. I feel like i am talking to myself, and wasting my time because no one will come to my blog. How do I get people to come to me? I even want to have give away contests, like for a couple of my convertable bibs, but I just don't know how to get anyone to see this. If anyone out there can help, please do leave me a comment with some advice. I'm all alone here and lonely.

If any of you have a daughter whose hair you fix, you MUST check this out. The link is in my sidebar. I found it on Totally Tutorials. Princess Hairstyles is amazing. The braids, weaving and hairdos that are on here are shear genius! If you have run out of ideas for your daughter's hair, check this out. Sooooo cute. I can't begin to do it justice by describing it, you have to see for yourself.

Don't pay attention to the date on my photo, I apologize for that, my camera is doing something goofy and putting old dates on my photos. I have yet to figure out why. I will show a couple of examples of projects I like. Nicky also has a book on crochet flowers, also. It's on my wish list....hmm..I wonder if my daughter needs another "Girl's Weekend!!??!!
I did manage to squeeze in a couple of crafty projects this weekend, after everyone went to bed. I have been seeing owls everywhere lately, and I really wanted a piece of jewelry with a cute little owl. What really attracts me to owls are mainly their eyes, so I decided to feature their eyes on my ,"Who gives a hoot" bracelet. It was a lot of fun to paint, and then i designed a beaded bracelet to go with my painted piece. I love it, and think I may make a necklace to match soon, but maybe with the whole owl on it.
Well, we had a birthday, and the holiday weekend, so it's been a little while since I have posted. My little granddaughter Avery has been planning her birthday for months. She turned nine, and was getting an Ipod touch like her big sisters, and she was so excited. Her big sister, Cierra is dabbling in photography, and this is a photo she took of Avery. She is doing pretty well with her photos.
