I've made up a few hair bows, like these Frozen themed ones. My friend Amy's little girls were going to see Frozen on Ice that evening, and she called and asked if she could bring me some ribbon and have me come up with some quick bows to match their dresses.
She also dropped off a roll of this Christmas ribbon she found at the thrift store for 49¢, so I made this one too.
Her youngest daughter is turning three in a few days and will be celebrating with a Jake and the Neverland Pirates themed party, so I made this one for the birthday girl.
I made Lily this woven headband to match my niece's Thanksgiving headband. Clearly this is one of the not-actually-taken-for-the-blog-pics.
And I found this velvet ribbon in my stash, and I don't think I'd ever laid eyes on it before. Sometimes people pass along to me random craft supplies they're getting rid of. Like this one time my Aunt Tina gave me bags full of vintage lace and trim and ribbon and fabric remnants and it was basically the best thing ever. And I don't think this ribbon came from her, but it found its way to me in much the same manner, and I kind of love it, so thank you to whoever gave it to me. I made this sweet bow that is going to look awesome with some little girl's pretty velvet Christmas dress!
I made my niece this ginormous rosette headband using the remnants of the blanket I made her. It's so soft!
My friend Rebecca asked me to make her daughter a leather and stamped copper cuff. She couldn't decide which color she wanted so I made up an extra leather strap she can switch the plate out on if she likes.
I also made myself a new pincushion out of this sweet little vintage tart tin I found at a thrift store. I have some similar cupcake tins I plan on turning into pincushions too, so I will do a tutorial in the near future.
I've been playing with the Gift Box Punch Board my mom got me for my birthday, and I'll do a tutorial on it coming up. So fun!
And I finally found the pinwheel attachments to use with the Pinwheel Punch Board, so that will be on the blog soon too!
My daughter Taylor has been feeling a bit crafty herself. She made this sweet paper banner that says ROACH FAMILY. And why yes, that is a sippy cup so fetchingly displayed on my mantle. Don't be jealous.
She also made these awesome scrapbook paper snowflakes and decorated the wall at the stair landing. I love how unique and festive they all are!
What sort of crafts do you find relaxing and therapeutic?
