Running out

I am starting to run out of earring ideas for my cousin for Christmas. I know it is now February and I just had a Holiday party this weekend. And now that I have given my cousin her earrings, I can share the other 2 pairs.

Overalls Dress Refashion — Darts and Gathers

My overalls were probably my favorite item of clothing that I didn’t make. I had been wearing them even though they were too short for awhile and it was finally time to give them up (they were almost to my knees). Initially I was going to sew them into overall shorts, but I knew they […]

A little bigger

I wasn’t expecting to get so many hours being part time, that’s retail for ya. Things are slowing down at work. But I did get some online retail therapy with a gift card I got for Christmas. I bought a 12×24 cutting mat for my scan and cut!

Aww nuts

Aw Nutcrackers is more like it!

I made this pair of Nutcracker earrings out of beads I already had! I wish I had more of the flat black to make another set as a gift.

If I make another set it will be for the same cousin I made earrings for last year. She is getting the kids a gift again. I might make earrings that are seasonal for other seasons too.
