Snap Clip Happy!!

I decided I wanted to make something new for the hair, but a bit smaller and great for those days when you don't want to wear a headband. So, I dug around in my mountain of hairclips, buttons, and fabric and came up with these cute new additions! My little munky is LOVING these. She wanted to try on every single one! The best part about these is how fun they are for any age, even us "moms" can pull these little guys off and add a little style and cuteness to our day ;o)





Fun Stuff For Boys Too!!

I am just in love with the new little boy's neckties that I've just started making! (It helps when your model is super adorable too!) Within the next month, I will have these available in a number of different styles and colors. Just in time to make a great Christmas gift for that special little guy or awesome accessory for those upcoming family holiday photos ;o)

Adding a little spark to the home decor!

I just finished up my latest project, and I'm loving it!! I decided to try making a few more things for around the house because I never can seem to find what I want in the store.. This time happened to be when I was looking for a set of coasters to match the more retro orange and brown them that I have going on in my living room. I went to Lowe's and grabbed some ceramic tiles, and after a trip to Hobby Lobby, I was back home with everything that I needed to make my first set of tile coasters.

I absolutely LOVE the way these turned out!! I'm planning to make them in a number of different designs, so look out for them on my etsy shop over the next few weeks!

Been a LONNNNGGGG Time!!

So, after a long hiatus, I've decided to enter blogland again!  I technically haven't been completely out of the loop since I've still been blogging with my photography, but I've really missed posting about my sewing, crafts, and just general fun tidbits of day-to-day life. 

My latest project has been working on some of these super cute fabric flower headbands! I absolutely love making them! Here's a quick preview of a few of the recent ones:




I have plans for plenty of other adorable crafty projects and can't wait to get back in the swing of things!
