Boot Cuffs

This Christmas I am sporting my new boot cuffs, HoHoHo! They are about 4" wide and they just Velcro on. They are so stinkin' cute and they match my Santa Hat! I think I'll be making myself some lace boot cuffs also, Pinterest is just full of ideas.

Santa Claus is coming to town!


Kiko, the elf is keeping a close eye on Bishop this year, so I made him a shirt so everyone will know. I painted the words on and sewed the legs on with removable bells. Tori will be in a play this Christmas and she will be Mrs. Claus but I bet Mrs. Claus never had a skirt this cute! It's just tulle tied around a black ribbon and a white boa hot glued to the tulle. The black ribbon goes in the front like the black belt Santa wears. HOHOHO

Shutter Art

Amy gave me this shutter and I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it. It just so happens Alli gave me these measuring spoons and I wanted to display them so I went to Pinterest and got a few ideas. 
I took three tea spoons, cut off the rounded part, bent them into a hook and used E-6000 and glued them to the shutter. I cut out some vinyl letters with my Cricut and placed them at the top. The spoons are precious, they are Smidgen, Pinch and Dash and a re-cycled shutter..... BAM! A successful weekend.

Cilantro

I LOVE Pico de Gallo!!! The recipe I have calls for 2 tablespoons of cilantro and it is sold in a bunch, so I always have lots left over and it usually goes in the trash after a few days. But then I got this great big fantastic idea to freeze the left over, really I saw it on Facebook! I took the bunch, cut the bottom stems off, a quick rinse and I starting chopping like a Chef, chop, chop, chop and then one more chop. I like my cilantro pieces very small, so it is a lot of chopping. I placed two spoons of it in my Pico de Gallo and the rest went into a baggie that I had marked with a sharpie. Pop it into the freezer until I need it again. I love that! I thought it might loose it's flavor or be wilted but it came out of the freezer just fine. You could freeze it in ice cube trays with wine or tomato sauce. The possibilities are endless!

Princess Fairies

I made these Princess Fairy costumes for the
Church Bazaar, General Store. I bought the wings at the dollar store for $1.00 each, and I made the tulle skirts. I think they are precious and I hope some little girl buys them and gives them a good home.

Pumpkin Time

I don't know about ya'll but in my house nothing says Fall quite like pumpkins.  I made these cuties to sit around the house because here in Texas we go from Summer to Winter in one week. Everywhere else there are trees changing colors and cool evenings but my husband says if the tree leaves are changing colors, it's dying, water it!
Each pumpkin has six panels sewn together with a stick in the center and lots of stuffing. The best things about my pumpkins they don't rot and I can reuse them every year!
