Hair Candy

Here is some more stuff for the bazaars. Love these! I like how they display better without the rubber bands attached so this is what they will look like and then people can choose their rubber band color when they buy it. There are 2 sizes for the pony holders and then the clip buttons are even smaller. I took a picture with all three for a comparison. The gingerbread ones are just for fun. I am also working on some butterfly clips but they need to be embellished so I'll have to post those later!

Vintage Button Rings

This project was not really planned. I saw the ring bases on an etsy shop where I was getting something else and bought 6 of them. This is now my favorite thing I've done for the bazaar! So much so that I just bought some more! I think the one on my hand will now be mine! The buttons I used, I bought at an antique fair. But I have my great grandma's buttons and I always hate to use them on cards and things so I think I am going to make all the women in my family one of these rings using my her buttons!

Let me know what you think and how much you think I should charge at the bazaar for these little cuties!

Not my favorite!

OK, I'll be honest...these are not my favorite cards! But, since they are for gifts and I know not everyone likes bright, primary colors like me (LOL), I stepped out of my box and made these! They're kind of growing on me actually!

Hopefully tomorrow at nap it will be nice so I can get some pictures of all the stuff I have finished for the bazaar! It's so windy right now, I think it'd blow everything away!

The Weekend!!!

Tadd only had half a day today...conferences! So I haven't been able to get on the computer...he's editing a movie for his xc runners! He is now mowing the lawn so I'll quickly post some more cards so that I don't mess up my "every other day" goal in the first week! =)

Not the best picture but you get the idea! It was super windy out and the cards kept blowing away! So it was a very hurried picture!

Have a great weekend everybody!

Making Cards

I think I have already said that I am making cards as gifts for my family. I decided to make 10 cards and they are NOT going to match. I decided not to match them because I think maybe they'll want to send more than one card to people throughout the year so I wanted different looks. When I am making the cards, I am usually making 2 different color choices...just because I like to! Here are the first ones I made!

Goal: Post More Creations!

In preparation for the bazaars I am doing and just Christmas in general, I have been creating like a mad woman! But, I always forget to take pictures and post it! I have to get better at that! So my goal is to post something new at least every other day! Phew...hope I can keep up! So here is the first thing. This is a card I made for the Hero Arts weekly challenge. I hadn't played in awhile but this one was to use patterned paper and HA stamps. Since I love basic grey and they were one of the featured companies, I chose their "Offbeat" line. And I couldn't resist those fun monkeys! Hope you like it!

Has it really been a week????

I can't believe a whole week has gone by since I have posted! Bad blogger! I have been working on some cards to give as Christmas gifts. My friend Megan comes over every Monday to work! I already have 3 cards done for all the women on my list! Way ahead of the game (at least for me!).

Last year Anna (cousin-in-law) and I did a couple bazaars. After spending WAY too much time on it and staying up until 2:00am for WAY too many nights in a row, we decided that we wouldn't do anymore bazaars until our kids were in school. But of course, we couldn't even last a year! We are doing 2 bazaars in November! In the past I have found projects that involve sewing and get it in my head that I should do that. But, although I can sew, it is not my favorite thing to do. So this year, I decided besides all of last years leftover stuff, I would do papercrafting things! (oh and those cute little hair candies I showed earlier!) I thought Christmas gift tags would be fun. So yesterday, I whipped up 100 tags! And now I think I am addicted! They are so fun to pick the papers and then embellish with stamps or stickles! Hope they sell because I have a feeling I am going to make a lot! LOL! I'll post a picture soon!

Oh and don't forget, Tuesdays are my day to write on the AWDML blog! You can see it here! And there is a chance to win Skinny Cow ice cream! YUM!

Hair Pretties

I have seen these online a few times and today with Isaac in school, I ran (well, drove) to JoAnn's to get some supplies to make them myself! I think I could get addicted! They are so easy! I just used scraps of fabric that I already had and it is so fun to go through the scrap pile! I would have made a lot more except this was all the buttons I bought because I wasn't sure I would like them! Well, I do! And now I NEED more! LOL!
These are the ponytail holders. Can't wait until my hair is long enough for a pony! It looked very cute in Erin's hair though!
Here they are on clips. These buttons are smaller than the ones on the ponytail holders...should have taken a side by side photo I guess!I am thinking about making some of these to sell at a little show (more on that another day!) and maybe for if I ever start an etsy shop! I need a good name! Hair dots? Hair candy? I am so bad with that type of thing! Got any ideas? How about price? I am thinking 2.00 for the ponytail holders and 3.00/pair for the clips?!?! What do you think?
