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.
So if you can't tell by now I have been focusing my efforts on making new hair stuff! Last night I finally finished a big bunch of hair bows, 30 total! I also finished my peacock feather flower the other day, and my friend Jamie made those funky fall flowers that are AMAZING! I am going to take a few days off from the hair stuff and concentrate on jewelry again I have a big show coming on Thursday at Acadiana High and lots of new stuff to make!
A good friend of mine is getting married in November and she requested that I make her a flower to wear with her dress! The center of the flower is hand beaded and accented with ivory feathers. I love it and I think she will love it too!! The wedding jewelry is will be finished soon and I will be sure to post pics!
This weekend was the first Fall showing at Birdie's Boutique (on University across from police dept.). This is my only permanent display in town and I rearranged a few things to accomodate this new hair accessory display. Come by and visit Ms. Kay and Ms. Ramona Mon-Fri 11am-2pm and on Wed till 5pm. Hope you see something you like!!
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!
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 flowerhair 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......
