{ decore, gifts and more.... }

I'm way behind on posting my latest projects, so I figured I'd start with the most recent.... St. Patty's Day decorations. I had so much fun making lots of shamrock garlands, in fact I made so many that I gave them to a few of my friends, which is also what I did for Valentine's day too! Anyway.... as always I hope you enjoy!

I made hair clips to match the girl's Valentine outfits my Mom made and then made a napkin ring to go along with a cute place setting idea for the quilt shop my Mom works at.

Laying out squares for Angie's quilt. My mother-in-law is helping me get it put together. I can't wait to have this finished and on Angie's bed instead of the ugly black blanket she has on there now! Then her whole room will FINALLY coordinate! YAY! :)

{ fun projects }

I realized I haven't posted in months, so I thought I'd show you what I've been up to.... starting with the oldest down to the newest.
My favorite projects were the quote canvas I did for my grandmother-in-law's birthday that said, "where words fail, music speaks", the "Lemons" frame I made for my sister-in-law's birthday and the "...growing up is optional" frame I made for my friend's birthday.
It's funny because all of those projects have been gifts.... 
maybe after Christmas I'll work on some of those for my house! :)
I know all three are enjoying their gifts though, which is why creating them was so much fun!
