Birds nest necklaces

I made these necklaces for my mother and mother in law for mothers day gifts. I saw these on Etsy... but it was pricey and I'm on a budget so with a friend I made one for my mom and mil and she did too for 5 dollars. Then I showed them off any ended up making and selling 10 more. Then I gifted about 10 more and 2 pairs of dangly earrings so ya it was a pretty good deal :)

SO if your mother's day gift wasn't everything you hoped I could make you one of these too. It looked so cute with one or two eggs too. And I made some with white eggs that were darling as well.

Scripture Case #2

One of my good friends Sarah Burt graduated and moved away so I made this scripture case for her.
I made my own pattern for this case added just a little bit of lace this time. The flower is a rosette made with lace

Go Cougs

I made this necklace for a thank you for a friend that took me to a couple of Cougar Basket ball games. I just sewed a tube stuck beads inside and tied ribbon between each bead. The beads were ugly and weren't the same size and it still worked perfect!

Baby gifts!

I made the hat out of an old sweater and found this elastic at Joann's that was shiney and soft perfect for a headband. Then I made these flowers to accessorize. These were co-workers baby gifts
