Pop-up box Christmas

Here is a pop up box I created a while ago. I finally embellished it last night. Added the card stock on the top and the sides of the top of the box. Then I added a rosette using Tim Holtz Die. Used a tag and some snowflake embellishments to make it shine. On the inside I used a clay penguin and snowman, some miniature lights, felt santa hat, and a tag.  Didn't want to add to much on the inside so there would be room for either writing or photos.

Olaf Composition Book and New Sock Bunny

Here are a few things that I created last night. I had this Olaf idea for the composition book for over a month. I just needed to buy the tape for my ATG gun to get it going. Finally bought the tape yesterday afternoon. Then I made this floppy earred bunny. They are so cute. I have a couple other animals in mind that I want to do with socks. I just have to get it done lol.

Sock Bunny

Here is my first sock bunny.  I saw someone make one on website. It caught my eye. That bunny on there was sooo cute. I did tweek the way it was done. I followed the first few steps and did it my way the rest of it. I did the eyes different. I didn't stuff it as much and didn't sew the ears down onto the bunny itself. I wanted the ears to hang down. Instead of using sock for the nose I used scrap fabric I had. I used different eyes as well. 

I totally love the way he turned out. so different. I think I may try a few others.

Uncycled Paper Bags

Here are a few upcycled Michael's Arts & Craft Show paper bags. I used the Recollections Bags and punched holes in them. The fronts are from Cards/Tags that ppl have sent me. I am repurposing them onto the paper bags to give them life. I punched holes in them and used ribbon/laces/seam binding for the handles. I didn't want to throw any of it away and I kept them. Wanted to make something new out of something old and I have done so!

I love the way they turned out. They are too cute. I want to create a few more just need to get more Kraft color bags. I only have burgundy, black, and pink.

Album for hubbies friend and new wife

Here is a gift I made for my husbands best friend and his new wife. We went on a trip back to our home state California. We spent our 10 year anniversary there as well as visiting and attending the wedding 2 days after our anniversary. Was great meeting her in person and seeing some of my old friends again. We only got to stay for 4 days before leaving.

Upcycle Mens Shirt

Here is an up-cycled project I created using a size large mans shirt. I got the shirt at a yard sale for 1.00!!!!!!  It was brand NEW.  I was pretty big and too hot to wear. Originally bought it for my husband because he likes Star Trek but sort of laughed. He said I wouldn't wear that. I said whatever I will. Took it to my sewing machine and serger and this is what I came up with. No before photos I forgot :(. Any who I found some scrap space theme fabric I got in the remnants section at Wal-Mart over a year ago. Been sitting in  my stash for something so I got it out for this.

Tilda Doll 9-Cassy

Here she is. Her dress was from a shirt that I upcycled. I only had parts of the shirt left from when my friend cut it up for something else. I used some vintage buttons and laces. Whats not shown in photo are her shorts underneath. I painted on her shoes with glitter metallic paint so they sparkle and shine!!!

Tilda Doll-8- Crystal

Here is my 8th doll I ever made. Her name is Crystal. Her hair pigtails can be removed to let her hair down. Her dress took a lot of hand sewing to get the details on it that I wanted. Her name came to me and stuck in my head since my kids adopted a new kitten. I love how she turned out.

This is what I came up with for my daughters display stand to hold her Rainbow Loom Stuff on. PVC pipes, connectors, caps, and Spray paint. 

saw an idea on pinterest but changed the idea to my own! I came up with this. 

here is what i saw

Its 24 inches tall

Here is my display for my Crocheted beanies that I made. 

Saw this similar idea on pinterest. She used wood. heres the idea--->

I had an idea of those paper mache balls but wasnt sturdy enough. I kept having to stuff them and they wouldnt look right. I thought of using that expanding foam but my canister got clogged and hey why not use my rolled balls to hold the beanies right?! I have another stand just need to roll my yarn into balls and put them on the other stand. Clever right! hehe
