Scrapbook expo find!!!

When the expo was in Anaheim I went with Judesmama! We had a good time and enjoyed walking the floor and seeing what is out there!!! Mostly the same stuff year after year!
So imagine my surprise when I found something so amazing!!! Wobble springs!!! Absolutely amazing!!! Did I mention I spent under 10$ at the expo aside from the parking and the entrance to get in!!!
You can see how neat this invention is!!! I was getting hung up on where to put my journaling on my 50's prime time cafe layout and it worked out perfectly!!!
What do you think?

Valentine Day Gifts

This year my baby is in preschool. A few Moms have gotten together and have done a co-op type thing, where we all take turns teaching. Its been a lot of fun! We also get to have field trips and parties! Like last week we got to go on a FUN FILLED FIELD TRIP to California Pizza Kitchen where the kids got to make their own pizza and moms got to eat for free!!! The day before CPK we had our valentines party and Kira gave these....

A couple of weeks before Valentines I happened to be at JoAnns for some other projects and ran across these. I'm a sucker for owls and I thought these were super cute! So I bought them...... 
Then I hit the dollar store for some candy, some pencils and some erasers..... and then put the pencils together to make them look like chop-sticks. I also put some letter stickers on them so I knew whose was whose and there ya go. A Very CUTE {even if i do say so myself},  relatively inexpensive (not as cheap as those cards from the store but I like these more) Valentines Gift. 

Total price for 6 containers was 4.99, a dollar for the pencils (10 pack) a dollar for the erasers (10 pack)  and a dollar for the little candy we put inside.... so $8.00 for 6 gifts (we gave the other two to some other friends) comes out to $1.33 a piece. Something like this would also be great for birthday parties etc!
Hope you guys have a good day!!!

been busy

I've been busy creating recently so i thought i'd show you a small fraction of what i've been up to.
i made this flower, which you could attach to a bag, or use as a brooch or hair clip.
The fabric advent calendar was all sewn by hand and is quilted quite thick and plush.
i've made several bookmarks, all fairly similar, just embroidered in different colours etc.

i made the scripture cover from scratch with no pattern, again hand sewn. Im really proud of this one!
the cushion cover is envelope style, so there was no need for zips or buttons. the letters on the front were attached using bondaweb, and then sewn for decoration.
the paper advent was made out of matchboxes. so cute!!

finally, i made about 25 felt ornaments for my christmas tree, of
which these are just three. i went with red and white this year, so
they are all variations on this theme.

anyway, its been fun. if you want to see any more or know details about how to make anything in particular just leave a comment.

thanks for looking xx

ps. sorry this post is all over the place, blogger is not being co-operative today!
