Baby Gift!

This past weekend I gave this super cute baby gift to baby Eli!  The bucket includes: monogrammed wipes clutch, pacifier clip, knitted hat, wee-wee wigwam, night light and monogrammed bucket which all matches :).  I wish I could say I did all of the monogramming, but my neighbor Amy does the monogramming and then I make the stuff!  Check out  The Pink Paisley for all things monogrammed.

Beautiful Buttons

The past couple of weeks I have been making lots of hair clippies and tonight was no different!  I made this batch of 
big button hair clips
which are one of my best sellers!

So tonight myself and two friends made hair accessories and watched 17 again!  I can't think of a better way to finish off a crazy week than with crafting and a chick flick :) Here are some pics of our creations!
Some adorable ribbon clippies that Ashley made.

I bet you can guess who made these! I love me some feathers :)
Jamie made these AWESOME flower hair clips! I am thinking Jewels by Julia may need to hire a new employee! She paired these funky flowers with a cool stretchy headband (below).  
This flower headband is a great way to combine Jewels by Julia clippies with a headband for a super trendy look! 

Of course I could not forget my little trendsetter of the family.  These girlie clips (sorry the pic is so bad!)are for my niece Alyssa who request some feather clips like her Aunt Jewuh!

A Bouquet of Hair Clips!

As I mentioned in Friday's post I have been in California since the end of July.  I was scheduled to return home today, but my flight was cancelled!! So what's a girl to do in Palm Springs?  Visit resorts? Go to boutiques? Nope I needed to get my crystal fix at Michaels :)  While the craft store was one of our many stops today, I was able to pick up the supplies I needed to finish this beautiful bouquet of flower hair clips!! I will be back at the airport tomorrow to hopefully catch my flight back to Louisiana!  Goodbye desert, hello humidity!

So I made this yummy 6 layer cake for a neighbor's birthday party we had at my sister's house the other night. My niece and nephew helped bake the cake and loved dying the layers. I just had post a picture because it was so cool! Two cake mixes, 4 cans of frosting, lots of neon dye and a few handfuls of skittles will get you this......
