Muff Making

I kept seeing these fabulous ladies and their faux fur muffs...so I decided to make one of my own.  Here is my inspiration...
From the Movie The Duchess



 J Mendel Fall 2010









Movie - Marie Antoinette

I used a tutorial that I found at JoAnn Fabric
 Here are a few of the steps along the way and a closeup of the lovely charms I used to ZJOOSH it up a bit...

Yarn Graffiti a.k.a. Yarn Bombing

Have y'all heard about this?  It is called Yarn Bombing or Yarn Graffiti!  Peeps take their yarn to the streets and zjoosh up the things that they see (light posts, trees, meters, statues).  Love it!  Hmmm.....I wonder what needs to be decorated in my town!

LOVE Records

I just love the way records look on the wall.  I found a bunch at the thrift store (a few of them are Barry Manilow...snicker...snicker).  Maybe someday I will find my dream vintage record player and play them all! The decorating possibilities are endless.  After Valentine's Day I am going to replace them with black and white pics in the center.  My little one loves the google-eyed one...
I only have "eyes" 4 U!

Valentine's Crafts

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching...my favorite day of the year!!! Sooooo...I have been busy creating some lovelies.  It started out as the typical red, pink and white Valentinesy craft, but somehow the leopard print snuck in!  Thank you to the Crafting Chicks for the flower pillow tutorial.


 I made one for the munchkin too...
