So Cute in Bunny Ears

June 13, 2017 Leslie Simmmons 0

Isn’t this the cutest hat for your littlest bunny to wear Easter morning?  I made one for each of the girls for their first Easter.  The original instruction set was in an issue of Martha Stewart’s lovely Baby magazine when Olivia was a baby (circa 2006??).  I made the first two from the sleeve of Graham’s white t-shirts, […]

Slow and Steady

Finally… these guys are done and headed into the Easter baskets.  Progress was slow, but they’ll certainly be received with smiles, don’t you think?  After all, it’s the anticipation of the smiles that keeps me creating. Another awesome Heather Bailey pattern.   <!– –>

A is for Addie.

My latest touch to Addie’s room. I’ve been eyeing these paper mache letters for quite a while. I have no idea what you’re supposed to do with them, but I wanted an A for Addie’s shelf. This project took me just an hour or so. I traced each side of the A onto heavy scrapbook […]

Halloween Countertop Creations

Olivia spotted a very sparkly, very pricey “haunted house” in a catalog a while back. I pinned up the picture with promises of making one ourselves. After painting a milk carton, a cracker box, and a couple cake boards with not-so-full-coverage paint, the wind blew them off the deck and I ran out and bought […]

Is Thanksgiving Really Next Week?

June 13, 2017 Leslie Simmmons 0

I’m in denial.  I just put away my Halloween decorations this afternoon.  And since the trick’o’treat bags are still overflowing with sugar, I see no reason not to share just a few more tricks from this year’s festivities. The girls helped me make these CREEPY, but delicious spiders.  If only you could have seen mom’s […]

Hot Glue and Doilies – my new BFFs

June 13, 2017 Leslie Simmmons 0

It’s no secret.  I’m a girly girl.  Bring out the pink, the ruffly, the doilies, the garland, I’m a sucker.  I saw Rhonna’s paper lolly tutorial back in December and finally got an afternoon to try them out.  While the little girls napped, Olivia and I tag-teamed the lolly craft.  I made the large lollies from […]

What to Stuff in this Goodybag!

I have been so busy soaking in all the delicious eye candy on the internet with my recent creative spark rather than sharing. But, alas, I have a project to show you. I made this “marlo bloom handbag” using the pattern and fabric from http://www.heatherbaileystore.com/ I just have to tell you that Heather’s fabric is […]
