Getting Crafty

My best friend is in town for a "sprinkle" which is a baby shower for a second baby.  She's having a boy this time, so her family is throwing her a low-key shower.  I wanted to make something (since that's what I do now!) so I watched this video.  This segment as seen on the Martha Stewart show was helpful, but it's definitely not as easy as it looks!  I had to roll and re-roll several times, but I'm happy with how this sweet little onesie bouquet turned out.

I might add if you purchase something similar from a company that creates these bouquets, it's outrageously expensive.  I just used a bucket from a local discount store, onesies and socks from Target, tissue paper and a styrofoam block, and floral tape.  Lots of floral tape.  It's also going to make a great centerpiece for the gift table.

Happy New Year

I won enrollment in this class...

...taught by the very talented Jeanne Oliver and some other artists.  I cannot wait to start creating and crafting and selling.  And maybe keeping some of the items for myself!  Thinking about this is what keeps me up at night now.  And that's a good thing.
