Ruffle Bums

I finally took some time to play with my serger a bit and did some rolled hems. It was really easy and it makes for a great finished hem or perfect for small ruffles so I ended up making some ruffle-bum onesies and putting them in the shop. I am sure there are so many other features I need to discover on my is fun to explore it, but just not a lot of time to do that.

I had to look up the term "upcycle" because I wasn't sure how it was different from recycling, but now I know it is taking something that would be trash and turning it into something more valuable. So for Valentine's Day I took some of my favorite cold coffee jars and made them into teacher's gifts. I just decorated them with scrapbook papers and ribbons and put chocolate inside...the key to any woman's heart. Super cheap and easy. Last year I used the same jars and made little "flower" bouquets out of paper. Both inexpensive ideas that I thought I would pass along. I really like "frap" jars because they are a cute shape, but have a wide enough mouth to add things easily.

Valentines for Boys

Creating a v-day shirt for a boy is hard...especially a 5 year old. I don't want it to be too cutesy, but I have seen these around and thought they were so cute and perfectly boyish. So I whipped up a couple this morning for their school parties next week. I think we will layer them with a red shirt underneath.

Happy Heart day to everyone!
