I understand that some of you have not heard of Scrabble Tile Pendants, so I am going to explain what they are.

After a grueling match of Eeny Meeny Miny Mo between the two entrants, the snowman goes to Haley. And after much deliberation, I decided to go ahead and send Sadie the other one. So you are both winners this time.

These guys are my favorite. They are salt shaker snowmen. Just paint a wooden ball white and put a face on it. Then glue the lid of a salt shaker on the ball for a hat. Then glue the ball onto the shaker after filling it with salt first. Then add a scrap of fabric for a scarf and dot some paint for buttons. I've had people ask if you can still use them as salt shakers and the answer is no. The ball is glued on so it's just for looks. I like going to the thrift stores and finding the fancy shakers for like $.50. The little tiny ones are so cute. I've given all my little ones away.

**This giveaway is now closed. Winner will be announced tomorrow.**
So I'm going to try this giveaway thing.
The Prize: I'm going to give away 2 pairs of the awesome shoes below. You get to choose if you want brown leather or purple.
How to win: Just leave a comment telling me which leather you would want and if there is a color scheme you would like or if you just want me to use my creativity and choose for you. Simple, huh? You can comment as many times as you like. I am going to randomly select 2 winners.
Deadline: I'm going to leave this open until October 11th. So tell everyone to hurry and enter.
Even if you don't win, and would still like to have a pair, let me know. I am working on the numbers to decide a price, but I would love to make them. And if you're the creative type and just want to make them yourself, you can get the pattern on the link below.
I finally got a chance to make these adorable shoes. I got the pattern a long time ago from HERE and have been meaning to make them. I've been looking at thrift stores for some leather purses or pants or anything to make the sole out of. The pattern just uses fabric, but I wanted them a little more sturdy. So I finally got a hold of two pairs of leather pants, one brown the other purple ( I'm not sure I personally know anyone that would ever wear leather pants, let alone purple leather pants.) I'm going to be able to get a bunch of shoes out of them. The shoes don't take a lot. You could easily use whatever scraps you have on hand. That's what I did. The first pair were the blue and white ones.
I loved them and Donevan wears them a lot. Then I made some for Iris with the purple. I actually had to adjust the pattern a little. And the first pair I made for Iris were a little too wide, so I adjusted the pattern again and ended up with these cute ones.
Then I made the awesome John Deere pair. I really love these. And the best part of them all is the elastic around the ankle that keeps them on. Normally shoes get kicked off really easily, but these stay on. So anyways, hope you like them.

My cousin, Hannah, created a pattern for this adorable and very functional swaddler. I was lucky enough to be a volunteer for a trial run of the pattern. It is very easy to make and even easier to use. I really wish I would have had one when Donevan was a newborn. He loved to be swaddled and this would have been so much easier than using a blanket. You just put the baby in the middle under the blanket part of it and tuck their arms in. Then you tie the side flaps in the front. Nice and Cozy. And when they get older you can tie it with their arms out. You can go to Hannah's blog for more details or to buy one from her shop.
Thanks Hannah for the opportunity to try this out.

I am finally putting some pictures of the denim bags that I made for myself. I didn't take pictures of the ones I've made for others. I didn't use a pattern, just kind of made it up as I went along. If there is anyone wanting one, let me know and we can talk. I use the Wrangler one as a diaper bag. I would like to have a more heavy duty zipper in it, but I really just wanted to get it done and used what I had on hand. The other one I used as a church bag but now I use when we travel to carry toys and books for the kids. I like that you can use the pockets and I like to put pockets on the inside too. The last one I made was for a friend and I put pockets with elastic at the top for bottles to go in. I can easily customize to whatever you want.
These are just a few of the many many booties I've made over the years. That has become my usual baby gift. I've used a couple different patterns and even made up some of my own, but this one is super simple and makes up really quick. I usually make white, but sometimes I mix it up and add pink or blue depending on the gender.

I just wanted to get something on this blog. These are a few of the things I have made for the surprises on my other blog. So if you were one of the lucky ones, you could be getting one of these soon. Nothing too fancy. Just practical. You can always use hotpads, right? And the other thing is a letter holder or I guess you can put whatever you want in it. We use it to hold bills and coupons. I designed it myself. Hope you enjoy.

I saw this and thought that it looked really easy. Iris likes wearing aprons when she helps me cook/eat. So I'll have to give it a try and make a few of them.
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
I've created this blog to show off some of the crafts that I make. I am working on getting some pictures of stuff so check back to see what I am making. I am pretty excited for it and might even try to make some money off some of the stuff eventually. Let me know what you think.
