Hi hi! I just wanted to share some pretties around our house these days.
Last week I spent about 2 hours searching for a box I thought I had filled with v-day things and found nothing. Then I was thinking about it and I realized I didn't really decorate last year. Ha, that was a waste of time.
So, I have been busy crafting and making decorations for the house. Next year there WILL be a box filled with pink and red goodness :) I haven't bought a single thing either... everything was already in my hands!!
I embellished these cute stands with rosette covered Styrofoam balls. They were super easy. All you need to do is apply some hot glue directly to your foam ball and roll fabric strips around. I used and old sheet, satin and some bumpy fabric. The sheet worked best I think... just so you know :)
I started this little project last year. I used painted scrapbooking hearts and simply glued some ribbon onto the backs to create my door deco.
Here we have some little hears stuck into our plant that I got last year on sale.. found these babies in the boys room and I am still searching for the white one I got. The vase will be filled with something, not sure what yet. I also have a little heart stand that we have been displaying Ryker's valentines in. He makes them at preschool and brings home like 5 a day ha.

I purchased this sweater from a thrift store because I loved the color. It has been sitting in my "crap" box for awhile but inspiration hit and I used it for my restyle project this week.
With a few snips and stitches I created three darling "up cycled" hats!! All are in size newborn. I might have to do this more :)
I am sooo in love with these little hats! I decided I will part with them and list them in the shop soon. Maybe I will get around to listing my up cycled diaper covers too!! Hmmm we shall see!

I was browsing Anthropology the other week and spotted a TON of cute things. Their prices are a little high for my budget but everything is sooo pretty and totally knockoff worthy!
One thing that caught my eye was this necklace. It looked super simple to make... so I did :) This baby has a touch romance to it too, perfect for Valentines Day!

My birthday will be here in less than a month!
Here is a little *wish list* I have made for myself :)
This vintage dress would be so SO cute to wear on my special day. Found on Etsy.
So, I liked these babies so much I kinda already bought them for myself. Who could resist?! Found here.
Yellow Polka Dot Rain Boots! Found at Target.
IT"S ON SALE!!! I am thinking about making my own if it isn't on my neck in a month. Found via beautiful Anthropology.
I would love a subscription to this magazine. They have some super cute ideas.

This is way late but I can finally post the handmade gifts I gave this year for Christmas.
Most of the patterns were free on the Internet so I linked back to them for you too see.
This cute owl hat went to my niece. I LOVE how it turned out.. so cute... I am thinking about making me one.
Using this tutorial I made my mama a laptop case.

For my Project ReStyle this week I used an old t-shirt my kiddo outgrew. I turned it into a darling tote bag. I really love it so I took pictures as I went for a tutorial. I hope it makes sense... I am not a pro sewer or anything. Sometimes I have no clue how to word what I do. So, sorry in advance if I am confusing :)
Open and press that seem. Now, sew a line or two down the inside of your fabric strip.
Fold the entire piece in half with right sides together and matching up edges. Sew together leaving the top open. I ended up rounding off my corners too, just so you know.
For the handles I used the sleeve edges from the tee. I simply hemmed the unfinished edge and sewed them to the bag.
TA DA!! Done... hopefully if you attempted the tutorial you made it to the end!
The cutest little tote just for this little guy....
Ugh, I hate it when he smiles all weird and totally fake-ish. Silly boy.
