Bunny Mobile

It's not the worlds best picture, but I don't have it hanging yet. I was making so much progress on this and then I hit a wall. I feel like I hit the crafting wall way too often. This has been sitting unfinished for over a week just because I needed to make two more pink flowers and didn't feel like making them. I was also hoping that our crib would have arrived by now and that I could hang it up in the baby's room. I guess that will have to wait. Well, now it is done for the most part. It did not turn out how I planed. It has become way more girly and a lot more busy. I was going to make some carrots and leaves for the top part, but my carrots were not coming out right and the leaves were just lame. Oh well, so now it's just flowers. Here are the pictures I took while making it.I cut out lots of bunnies out of some felt and put cute little tails on them and sewed some faces on them. =)Pinned the ribbon on and hand sewed around them. (I stink at machine sewing)Stuffed some stuffing in them to make them "alive."Then I tied them on the hoop I got, but later I realized that I should have just hot glued them on as it would have made them a lot less bumpy.Added ribbon all around to cover my messy tying job. I would have left it like this, but the tying made it so ugly that I had to come up with some way to cover them.So I cut out lots of flowers out of felt. It was a great sit outside in the sun activity.Put a button in the center. It looked so good on my pregnant belly. =)Made one to hide all the center strings (was going to be a carrot, but that didn't work as well as I thought)Sewed all the flowers on and I was done!

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath.
First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, Melt My Heart

I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash. I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)
I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

Scrapbooking, Sunshine

I love yellow pages.  They always make me so happy.  I made this for SWAT drill 16.  The layout sketch was a fun one to work with.  I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum.  At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was!  I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture.  This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression.  So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling. The twist for the drill was some twine.  I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.
