I have discovered the TRUE meaning of “blogging” and I love it!! Unfortunately, I have gotten side-tracked by it. It is much fun to see what everyone is doing. I love making new blog friends and being inspired by all the awesome crafts everyone has. Some of the stuff I have seen, I would of NEVER thought of. Like Courtney with Between U and Me
I had to tell Courtney she has inspired me and I am ALREADY planning Alie’s 3rd birthday party!!
Kara with Craftastical made this Quilled Monogram Letter, OUT OF SCRAP PAPER!
Teresa with Nestled In Rosenberg , made this framed piece of art from a DOLLAR STORE GIFT BAG. Teresa is my hubby’s sister and I kept telling him “from a DOLLAR STORE GIFT BAG!!!” over and over again!
My other sweet and wonderful sister-in-law Emily with DecorChick! ,added rhinestones to these DOLLAR STORE hurricane glasses. How cute are these?!!
Stacy with Just Sew Sassy ,re-fashioned this $3 dress from WalMart. The moment I FINALLY get my own sewing machine, this will be my first sewing project!!
There is SO MUCH greatness out there, I think I am going to HAVE to do a weekly “look at what I found” blog and feature some of y’all. No really!! I want to dedicate a day specifically to the wonderful things I find out in “Bloggyland!” I am not sure what day exactly, but I have made a Featured by AliLilly button just for this purpose.
Now, as for my projects, these are a few of the new jewelry pieces I have, FINALLY completed.
The earrings below I could not quite decide on the bottom piece. So I thought to do all three and let the buyer choose which base they liked best.
I have a cute story to share with you, as well. I was practicing making crepe paper flowers from a tutorial I found here at Alison’s blog Oopsey Daisy
I had made a few, but needed to start dinner. I had to put them somewhere out of the reach of Princess Alie’s little grabby hands. I placed them in an empty cloche I had. They look so cute in there don’t they!?
As soon as I decide on a specific day to showcase y’alls wonderful projects and recipes, I will let everyone know. I am also thinking of doing a giveaway from my AliLilly Etsy Shop, as soon as I reach 100 followers!! What do y’all think??!
Kara, Courtney, Teresa, Emily, Stacy and Alison if you’d like you can grab my feature button!! Y’all are my very first features!!!
