little craft apron

I have been wanting to make my daughter an aprong for when we cook/craft/create. I finally broke down and went to a specialty fabric store and found these cute prints! They were rather expensive, but I figured I didn't need very much, so I got it! I love how it turned out. And I even have enought fabric to make her a dress/shirt. I got the pattern online here. I added my own flair by adding the pocket and fabric on the bottom. I am going to give it to my little one for Christmas...also a great kids gift for bday/xmas.

beanies and scarfs!

I love the fall because I get an excuse to crochet. It's so relaxing and doesn't take very long after you get the hang of it! Here's a couple of things I made...I like the ribbon threaded through with a bow...adds a little flair!

I saw this cute garland here and had to make it. All it took was one smallish sized packing box, packing tape, scrapbooking paper and ribbon! I LOVE how it turned out and the best part about it is that it was free to make! Also, you can make it as long or as short as you need depending on where you put it!

step 1-cut pieces from packing box and use packing tape to tape together.
step 2-cover with paper as you would wrap a present. (and I just used the packing tape for that too.)
step3-wrap with ribbon and string with twine...and Whala! You've got a cute holiday decoration!
