Crazy Crafting Fool!

So the last few days I have opted to skip my mandatory naps in favor of getting some of my projects done. Now that is no small feat considering I also worked the last 2 nights! I totally patted myself on the back for my will power in resisting the sweet softness of my bed...though I did succumb today...anywho. Now where was I? Oh yes, the crafting! I am so happy with how my stuff is looking, and I haven't completed so many things in such a long time that it is really making me feel good! I love to be productive, I truly do!

So here's what I have been making:

Barrette holders.Here is Natalie's in action. Isn't this a cute idea? I totally got the idea from somewhere else and made it my own! Why pay for something when you can make it for way cheaper? And barrettes! I love, love, love the colors of ribbon that Sarah and I found for these!
I still need to make more of the orange ones. I only have one so far, and I just LOVE the green and teal stripe one, it has sparkle stripes too, so pretty!
Um, and yeah I realize this whole post is "look what I did!!", but I guess it is my blog, so I am allowed a little horn tooting every now and then! ;)

P.S. You will find out what all this stuff is for later, I am not sure if it is a surprise or not!

Those barrette's are adorable! I'll have to get one for my niece :)

Shannon said...

Well, Miss Julie, the three on the left will be sold in sets of 3/$2.50 and the other ones will be sold for a dollar a piece. I am heading to Michaels here in the next few days to get a few more types of ribbon!

Keep in mind that if I don't donate my ponytail to Locks for Love, I could use a good MASCULINE barrette (Is that an oxymoron?). Love. Dad

Dad oh my goodness you crack me up! And yes that is a totaly oxymoron!

Julie we are going to apply for a spot at Canton in the City, should be a lot of fun!
