Handmade Valentines

Hope everyone had an awesome Valentine’s Day! I just wanted to share some of the treats my little one took to school. We made personalized clothespin magnets sets for each one of her teachers and gift wrapped them appropriately, of course!! 😉 I love the tiny white paper sacks! And we bagged cookies in cellophane bags for the classmates with handmade tags! The pictures are not so great but here you have them!


The little one made the teachers the cutest paper heart bookmarkers, cut out hearts for all of the name tags, and wrote each person’s name on them. I love handmade things! I hope everyone at school loved them just as much as we loved making them together (bakers twine is my new love, by the way)!! ((:

Happy Monday, you guys!!


Girly Stuff

My little one is used to being surrounded mostly by boys so I have a hard time getting her to wear anything that seems too girly for her. That leaves me with making girly things for anyone who lets me dress their little girls.

A few months ago I decided to give bow making a try and I didn’t do too bad. I don’t like intricate bows so I tried to keep them as simple as possible but used different ribbons to make them just different enough from ordinary bows. Here’s only two of those (I made some cheerleading ones for a neighbor’s niece but didn’t get any pictures of them).



I also made my very first tulle tutu for a co-worker’s newborn baby. It isn’t my best but for being my first it wasn’t too bad! 😉 I also made her a matching headband with one of my favorite burned edge fabric flowers!


She was less than five pounds so this is a rather tiny tutu! I set it on a candle and candle stick for the picture. So, that should give you an idea how itty bitty the baby was!! I had hoped to take her picture in it but life got in the way of that and before I knew it she had already outgrown it. I still hope to be able to take photos of her soon and when I do, I will share them here! 😉

Thanks for coming by. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!
