Headband holder

 I made this headbow holder for my friends French/Damask/Pink/Black Baby Girls room! I found this ceramic candle stick at Target for $2.50! I then used an empty Gerber snack bin after my kids were done with it! I wrapped it in the same print I created for the hair bows! Then I trimmed it with a satin pink lace! I left the top off so she can just put headband IN it or around it! She loved it!

I then made my friend some hair bows to go with it!

Bow/Flower Clip Holder

 I've had this frame for months and was dying to do something with it! A friend of mine told me she was doing her baby girls room in Paris Shabby Chic! Light pinks and black! Adorable! So I made this for her! I can't wait to give it to her!

 I created a print for her in Adobe Illustrator. Her name is going to start with a "T" to fit the rest of her family so she has her own print now!

Bride Flower Clips

 I was recently approached by a good friend to do a flower flip for her wedding. At first I thought she meant for her flowers girls! But then realized she meant for her...the bride! Talk about pressure! Such a big day people that I was nervous about getting it exactly as she pictured in her head. She sent me several photos of others that she loved as well as a picture of her dress to try and match the fabric as close as we could. "Cream" can mean a lot of things!
 I ended up using two fabrics. One poly satin and one chiffon! I was worried the chiffon wouldn't work with the curling like I wanted to. I never should have worried because I think it came out exactly as I needed it too!

This 1st one is 3-3 1/2". This is actually the 2nd one I made for her. After her hair trial the first one was just too big to work out. There was no way I was going to let it go without getting it right. So I whipped this one up and sent it off to her. So glad it worked out!

 Here is the first one that is 5 1/2"-6" wide. I used less chiffon on this was as well.

Menu Board

I recently made this menu board! This one is for my sister in law. I've got mine in the works now! I came up with the idea because my husband and I are both really visual. I've been seeing a lot of chalkboard ones on Pinterest but wanted something more! This way the kids can help pick the meals too!
I got a $10 frame at IKEA. Then all the other supplies I actually had in my craft closet. I used scrapbook paper and shiny cardstock. I also used a red envelope that I cut down for the "meals" to go in. I got put some velcro on the back of the sticky notes! I found those at Staples for $3!
I added a 2 1/2" Satin Ribbon that I put the clothes pins on. I painted the clothes pins to match the red! I then put the days of the week on the clothes pins! A hot glue gun will be your best friend for a project like this!

Then you can write your favorite meals on the slips of cardstock paper. The extras are for when you come up with new meals!

Jack's 1st Birthday

My nephew, Jack, turned 1 on Saturday! I made his invites + a map since the party was going to be at a rather big park!

I made four of these signs above to put on the trees and to decorate the gazebo where the party was at!

Water bottle labels!

I also made a banner of his name to put in his smash cake!

Then I made a banner for his highchair that said, "I AM 1"! This is the just the banner without the letters/numbers on it yet.

and the final product!

Happy Birthday Jack!
