Happy Birthday Christa!!

I just love to make gifts for my friends and family, and today is my friend Christa's birthday from motivating mommies. She is thirty something today and had the similar experience this a.m. I had on my birthday. Here mom and husband "forgot" about her special day, until she gently reminded them. But, I didn't forget and created her this lampwork bracelet this a.m. I just love it---it's so colorful and springy. Wish I had enough beads to create one for myself, but, I'd probably give that one away too!

Hope you have a Great day!!

Mother-daughter bracelet set

A friend of mine asked me awhile back to make her a coordinating mother and daughter bracelet set. Her only request was that it had the colors of one of the shabby chic bedding lines at Target. Do you know what I'm talking about?? That collection is soo cute---I have some for Josie's room. Anyways, I found the lampwork bead set on Ebay and went to work. She also requested a butterfly charm on them. They turned out really pretty and she liked them too!!

I know this is a little late, but I just had to share this little guy for you. Maybe you'll remember it and use it for next year. My Aunt Robin made this chick out of two styrofoam balls, some yarn, feathers, and two pipe cleaner feet. Isn't he adorable?

Hope you have a great day today!

Yes, it's really a new post from me!!

Hello again! So, are you sick and tired of those organza flowers?? Me too. Sorry for the very long absence. I moved into a new house, closed up shop for awhile, and just felt unispired to blog. I didn't even check anyone else's blog for that for that, sorry guys---I know I missed a lot.

I recently had a photographer contact me to do some pictures with my hats and she is absolutely AMAZING!!! I'll tell you, I've had soo many photographers in the past contact me for discount or even free hats in exchange for pictures.....and unfortunately, I never receive what's promised. But, Amy assured me, she'd take good care of me....and here's what she sent so far. Aren't they absolutely precious??? I wish she lived near me so she could photograph my newborn in June!!

Here's a link to meet her and see her amazing photography.

I'm also in the mists of some new projects that I'm sure will keep me inspired to until then....have a great day!
