Flip Flops

I love the Switch Flops that are for sale at Beautiful Girl but I can't wear anything between my toes.  My daughter and granddaughter love them for the summer so I made these while watching Ocean's Eleven tonight.  I love crafting while watching movies.  I get a lot done and get to relax at the same time.  They are real easy to make.  I used E600 to glue the velcro to the flip flops.  Then I sewed the leopard ribbon to the other velcro and that was it.  I saw a tutorial somewhere for them but I can't remember where.  Anyway, they are very easy to make.  Try them.

Craft Challenge

I finished my picture frame and here it is.  I just added fabric roses and tiles that spell LOVE.  I don't know what I'm going to do with it.  Just keep it around until I find the perfect picture to go in it.

How To Make Rolled Roses

I have made these fun rolled roses and they are so cute!  I came across this tutorial and just had to share it with everyone.  The blog is and you can click here for the tutorial.  They are really easy and fun to make.

Craft Challenge

Yay, I'm the first one to put my picture frame up for the craft challenge.  I made this for my sister who is leaving for South Africa this weekend.  I'll miss her.

Craft Challenge

Our necklace challenge was very fun and we had double the amount of entries (OK so that's just 2).  I've had a hard time getting pictures to put on the blog but I have Kami's and Brittney's today.  I'll put my picture up when I get it.  Brittney won the prize-a rolling suitcase filled with pedicure thingys.  She loved it. 

Next week the challenge is a picture frame.  You must either start or finish with a picture frame.  I've already started mine and it's going to be fabulous-at least I think so.  This has been so good for me.  I'm doing things I wouldn't normally do and trying new techniques.  Think about joining us.  The more the merrier!

Craft Challenge

And the winner is..........Krafty Kami! She did the very clever paper bead bracelets.  The beads are made of rolled up scrapbook paper and sewed onto an elastic band.  She wins a set of refrigerator magnets and a three tier Snap N Store organizer.  The challenge for next Monday is a necklace.  You must begin or finish with a necklace.  Take a necklace and make it into something else or embelish one you already have.  Or you can make a new necklace out of new supplies or something you already have.  I have a hundred ideas and only a week to get it done.  I guess that's why it's called a challenge.

I Have A Secret

I forgot to tell my secret.  My niece Kaylee is engaged!  She didn't want to announce it to everyone when I found out so I was sworn to secrecy.  Now that everyone knows, I'm so excited for her.  She's getting married on July 30 and I get to help decorate for the reception.  I can't wait!

Craft Challenge

I'm going to post my bracelets for the craft challenge tonight.  Then I can work on posting everyone's pictures tomorrow.  I hope we have more than 2 who have completed their bracelets.  I want to see what everyone has come up with.  I did two bracelets but one was a repeat of the button bracelet I did to sell on Etsy.

Craft Challenge

I've got my bracelet made for the challenge and I really like it.  There are more co-workers interested in joining the challenge so I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with.  Now I have to figure out how the site works.

Craft Challenge

I was browsing the isles at Hastings tonight when I came up with a wonderful idea.  My co-worker and crafty friend have been having fun inspiring each other with our fun projects so I'm going to challenge her to a craft-off each week.  We'll have a theme or topic and have to come up with something fabulous.  I think we should invite everyone to join the fun and I have enough "treasures" that I could come up with some cool prizes.  I'll let you know when and what the first one will be on Monday.  I'm so excited!!!!!!

Crafting My Heart Out

I've been in love with making these shabby chic dishes since I saw them at the Women's Conference I went to last week.  I glued the candlestick to the plate and bowl with E6000.  I don't know if I can stop or if I want to.  I may have to redo my whole house in shabby chic!  That wouldn't be so bad, would it?

I Have A Secret

I have a secret and it's just about killing me not to tell everyone.  But I have to wait.  Hopefully not for very much longer.  I think I'll be able to spill the beans next week.  Check back to see.....

New Projects

I am re-designing a pair of cowgirl boots.  They are white with silver metal studs, fringe, and high heels.  I'm going to paint part of them black and put either clear or black rhinestones on them.  If you have any ideas for me please let me know.  I'll show you the finished product next week.

New Projects

It's about time I posted something.  I really have been having fun with my Etsy store.  I just put some new things in there and I have so much fun with them.  The first one was a bracelet I made out of an old belt.  I just cut and glued it together and I think they turned out so cute.  The next was a fabric flower headband and my favorite was a bracelet made out of elastic with tons of button sewed on it.  My friend had one on last week and I knew I had to make one.
