  I met my newest cousin last month at a family function in Idaho.  I wanted to get him a present and knew that this onesie from Trusty Sidekick was just the thing.  I had first heard of Trusty Sidekick when she was at the booth next to me at a craft fair a few years ago.  I just love her brilliant idea for kids clothes and she is also super, super nice.  Go buy her stuff!     I also bought this cape for new...

The first couple of days after I found out, I was in shock and walked around in a daze.  Now it’s fully sinking in and I have much work to do!  I’m so grateful for this opportunity; this will be my first real experience trying to sell my product to others.  I’m also crazy nervous, but...

Finally I had the perfect project for these recycled wine corks....

Felt Flower Tutorial


Posted on Jul 5, 2011

I’ve been a bit obsessed with felt flowers for the last few years.  It started when my sis asked me to make her wedding bouquet and 3 bridesmaids bouquets.  I posted a tutorial on how I made her bouquet that you can see here.  I’m so glad I got to create something so important for my sis’s wedding.  It was such a wonderful labor of love.  I’ve gotten so many comments on that post asking how to make the actual...
