Pinwheel Barrettes!

Spent some time last night making these cute little barrette/clips! They were pretty quick and I had all of the materials on hand already. Selling them in my Etsy shop:

Pirate Suitcase

This is how it started out on the inside...really musty-smelling and the color was horrid! So we ripped that all out and relined it with some ship fabric I had laying around waiting for a use.

Next up was painting a layer of primer on the outside. Then painting (acrylic craft paint) 2 layers of black on top of that...once it was dry, we mod-podged a Jolly Rodgers look on one side and a hand-drawn (okay kinda cheesey, but it turned out okay) treasure map on the other.

The final version of the front/back is at the top! For some reason I can't get this to post the pictures in the proper order or place on the page...still working on how to do that. But you get the idea :D

Garden Gnomes!!

My first blog post...obviously not one of the best you'll find on the internet since I am still trying to figure this whole thing out... But I thought I'd start with a pic of a little garden gnome I made. :) Over time, hopefully this will get easier and look better!

By the way, this little guy can be purchased at my Etsy store: :)

edit: SOLD!! :)
