The Start of Something Wonderful

I did it! I finally started a new idea and am following through with it! It must be a sign that I am growing up. I was sitting at work the other day and my other receptionist had on a super cute headband. We got to talking and she said this girl made it and it cost her $25 bucks. I thought wow... that doesn't really look like $25! haha I took a closer look at it and I decided it looked easy enough to make myself. Two days later I got the supplies and now I have finished 4 cute headbands! I am super excited about them and I hope to put them in my Mom's shop/basement because so many laides come down there everyday! I hope people will like them. I feel so proud of myself that I was able to come up with these ideas! They acutally are kinda time consuming... And Steve thinks he should quit his job because I'll be making so much off of these... haha yeah right. So who knows! I hope that it will grow into something I can be proud of! I'll still be on the lookout for more ideas and supplies, these are just the start of them!

Creative Splurge

So I have been itching to make something cute lately. My mom is such a great jewelry maker and I would like to say I had something to do with her starting that business. Well now that I'm not at home my creative juices are just fizzling out. So yesterday while I was sitting at my desk at work with nothing but time I decided I want to make fabric flowers somehow. I have been going crazy looking at some beautiful blogs that these crafty moms have posted. I hope that someday I can be just half as amazing as those ladies! I'm still not sure what I will be crafting but Steve has to work all day on Sautrday, which means I'll be heading up to Syracuse and using my mom's sewing machine! I hope to get really good and possibly sell some of it. But first I need to know what I'm making! haha I'll be sure to post some of my creations.... who knows exactly how it will turn out though!
