black and white roses in glass ornament

I’m a little bit overdue for an ornament diy (especially since I fell 3 days short of my 12 Days of Christmas project…arggg). And SO, since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I’ve got a really cute little heart ornament DIY today. I actually came up with this idea last year using mini red…

barbie shoes

I’ve been collecting Barbies since I was about 16 years old. 18 years of Barbie dolls reside at my house. I don’t know how that’s possible, since I’m only 23 now….   I can’t help it; I just love Barbie. Most of my dolls are still in the boxes, and even after all the years…

ribbon wrapped christmas ornament

Today I am going to teach you a little known fact about Christmas that I’ll bet you’ve never heard before. The seven swans-a-swimming and the eight maids-a-milking were actually all given by my true love (and your true love, too) on the same day. It turns out that our true love liked to wait ’til…

  I could barely wait to write a tutorial about the ornaments I just made today. I’ve seen rag ball bowl fillers before, but I’ve never tried making one into an ornament until now. I finally gave it a shot today, and I am so excited about how they turned out THATICANBARELYSTANDIT. I think it’s because…

shabby button christmas ornament

Okay, well, I’ll admit that it isn’t looking so good for my 12 Days of Christmas ornaments project. It’s beginning to look more like a “6 Days before, and another 6 Days after, Christmas…maybe…” project instead. But noooo! I’m not out yet! I will go down in red and green and glittery flames before I…

handmade ornament tutorial

Except for my quilted ornaments, I’ve had more people ask for the instructions to make my Christmas Carol ornaments than any other ornaments I offer on my website.  It took me awhile to get this tutorial done, because these ornaments are…well, pretty involved to make.
