Just in time for the holidays! I was in one of my crafty moods and made many of these. Gotta love those moments, right? :)
Handmade Key Fob Wristlets: Stylish and practical. These key fobs wristlets are made with durable, heavy-weight 1.25" cotton webbing, then adorned with such pretty fabric, which is sewn on. Metal hardware and split ring. Just slip your hand through its 9.5" opening to keep your keys handy. Valerie Salmon label sewn inside. FREE SHIPPING within the US.
They make perfect gifts for anyone! Don't forget your kids' teachers, too.
I've been in a wreath-making frenzy lately. This is the second one I've made this fall. I saw one similar to this on etsy for over $100 -- and being the DIY girl that I am, I just made one myself for much less dinero.
One quick trip to Michael's and little bit of time later, I was hanging this pretty creation on my front door. You can do it, too!
In the springtime, you can adapt this same idea with hydrangeas in bright pastel colors. Awesome, right?
I almost forgot to share these little cuties. I designed these for BHG Scrapbooks etc '12 Fall issue some months ago. As you know, they have ceased publication of my favorite magazine -- and these paper-piecings are too adorable not to share.
These colorful Halloween treat cones make candy-giving so much more fun! Plan some craft time with the kids and create a bunch of these "spooktacular" projects to give to classmates and friends. These are perfect for "BOO"-ing your neighbor, too. Just hang them on their front door knob for a fun surprise.

It's my 17th anniversary today and it was time to make a card for my husband. I didn't want to make your typical, serious, lovey-dovey anniversary card. I wanted a fun, cheery, playful one. So, this is what I came up with.
Wouldn't this look perfect as a birthday card, too?
