side work...

Since there is a plethora of things I like to do, I consign all the little extras at The Little Red Hen here in town. It doesn't make me rich and I don't depend on it as a second income, but it does give me reason to keep doing what I love. I'm sure my husband is always wondering what I will bring home next to work on, but it does keep me out of trouble ;).

I am a big button junkie, so these two necklaces were made in hopes that there are other button junkies out there!

My newest love is metal stamping. I have had some fun and have tried stamping on a lot of different metals. I made my friends washer pendants with their names on them for Christmas and have been busy looking for other things to stamp on!

I made some flower pins for a bachlorette party and had a few left over..I guess I will see if these sell.

Here are a few Paci-Clips I made. When Maxton was a baby he never left home without one clamped on his shirt. I pieced little scraps of fabric I had together to make the straps and I think they turned out nicely. I think this may be a staple in my baby gift giving!

a little room updating...

I've been busy getting things squared away in Max's bedroom for his transition from crib to twin size bed! He is very excited and can't wait for his big boy (half) of the room. Since we do have a 2 bedroom house the newest addition to our family will be squeezing into Max's other half. I opted NOT to make Max's bedding as I have too many quilts on my list to do (that I HAVE to get done). He wanted a robot room, so this is the bedding that we decided on. I plan to make him some custom robot room accessories instead.
I took a break from the usual house chores today to make some covered button hair pins.
There really isn't anything too fancy about these, just fun to sit down and do some creating! Last week I made 4 Dear Jane blocks, so I'm slowly working on those too. I'm hoping to get 2 rows sewn together so I have some the rate I was going I'd be lucky to complete the top in 5 years, so here's to working on that little project more!!
