Let's play catch up

Today is my catch up day on all the projects that I've worked on but haven't had the time to sit down and  make out a whole post devoted to them. So, this is a mash up of stuff all the way back in January..... No let make that December.  I forgot about my Christmas wreath I made. I did edit and uploaded the picture's of them but never got to make that that post. Hmmm, Oh well.



 The thing that I loved about this project was  it cost $6!  It was also fun to make!

  The thing that I didn't know about snow on a plastic wreath is that it never truly dries. Meaning if you touch it WILL come off.... Maybe it's like that on all thing's. I've never used it before. I don't know.
Anyway, it was soooo pretty before I decorated it.

In the end I still liked it!


 If you Saw this post ( my first ever this to that) then you'll recognize the  material there from my first trip to Joann's. I don't remember the exact day I made this ( some time last year) but I know I didn't get photo's of it until  January  because I took them with my pretty new camera.

 Love this ribbon! I picked up at Micheal's a while back in the $1 section. Not even thinking about my sewing machine cover at all. I picked up the last two they had, when I got home I noticed they were different colors. One orange, one yellow. I thought  oh well  I still really like them. Then  when I finally set down to make my cover I noticed the orange matched perfectly with my material! I was very excited!


 Even though I started this in January   I didn't finish it until  the week of Valentine's Day.  Every heart I made  I hand stitched together.Yep no glue....... I worked on it off an on for quite some time. FYI I hate hand sewing. It might show a little. I tried to make it pretty and even, but that didn't always happen. When I found myself getting frustrated with it, I put it away until I could go back and finish it. I really liked it once it was all said and done.

 Of course she just HAD to play with it :D

 What do you think? 

 Well some how it didn't stay up long and ended up falling over and over. I eventually gave up fixing it. lol :D

 Here's my cheap decor HAHAHA :D
$3.50! YAY!
  I love the heart ones. Sadly they wouldn't stay up. .... I don't get why I can't hang anything properly in my house..... Anyway I found a new home for them and they have, so far, stayed put.

She thought they were toys :D
 So did  Lex he kept using them for target practice with his Nerf gun. -.- 

 So for Lex's  Valentine's Day party I made his whole class  pom pom monsters. You might of seen them floating around the blogisphere  around Valentine's day. Well I thought it would be an simple, but fun, Valentine for every one. BOY! Was I wrong. It took  up until the night before his party to finish. That's because I wasn't able to work on them a whole lot. I didn't want them to have super short hair. I wanted it  long and unruly looking.So, I cut them little long then had to fluff each and every one. That is what took the longest.
I was so happy when  eye day came!

  ALL 21 CAN SEE!!!

 And finally the name tags! 

 I love how they turned out but next time I will definitely make  LESS of them.


I found this tutorial  on Flipboard. But it's from
I goofed on it a little but I still love it! I use it to carry my make-up around.

I really got  back in to working with polymer clay. (Not exactly sure when. That's why it says March/ April). I sat down and intended to see if I could whip up some buttons.  And well.... Just take a look what I made instead :D

Right after I took this out of the oven her tail broke :(. Then later on Emma broke the other piece off. Oh well She like's it

Then Aunt Liz visited and we sat down and made some clay things together. I made a miniature Ariel and gave it to Liz. 'Cause she is a Disney Fanatic!  Like me, she Loves Ariel! Who wouldn't?

Liz made everything else from here down. :D

Awesome work :D

Well, that's it for now I just got my first ever PDF pattern done and the pictures taken for the tutorial. I just need to edit them! Unfortunately, it's only one size but I'm sure some pretty crafty people out there can size it up. ;) Or just use it as is.  But Hey it's free! And I'm learning still :)

Have a wonderful day!
