Some New Cuties

I found a great tutorial for these travel tissue holders and whipped up a couple really fast. I am definitely making more of these! They are so fast to make and so much fun! These will be very reasonably priced considering how quick and easy they are to put together and not much fabric is needed. They'll be in my Etsy shop soon, or I may save them for my Lollishop.

Speaking of Lollishops....I can't WAIT for the grand opening. I am so excited about the fact that us lovers of "frou frou" will finally have a place to showcase our genre of crafts. Etsy is a great marketplace, but I feel lost in the myriad of styles there and have really wanted something geared specifically to my own taste. This is a dream come true! I think beta testing starts on the 15th and the grand opening is like the 28th, if I'm not mistaken.

Here's my other little weekend project that will be in my shop soon. I found this adorable little wreath pin sitting on a shelf at one of my favorite thrift stores and I thought it was so pretty with the colored stones. A couple of the tinier stones are missing, but you can hardly tell unless you look really close. The cushion is made from a pink, pure linen napkin that I've had in my stash for a while and I buried the whole thing in a little ceramic trinket box in a bright white. I just think this is so pretty in its simplicity.

We went out shopping today for gifts for my DIL's baby shower. It's next Saturday. I had so much fun picking things out. It's been so long since we had a baby in our midst and I'd forgotten how much fun it was to browse the baby isles at the stores. Most of what I got was from the Pooh line and I'm sure Jenna will love it all.

As a side note, while I was shopping and experiencing sticker shock at every turn over all the holiday commercialism that is everywhere this time of year, my creative juices began to flow with ideas of how I could create some of the things they wanted ten prices for, but then another dilemma...WHEN? Where's the time? I couldn't possibly make everything I want to make before I die. Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with ideas that you didn't know where to begin? Sometimes it gets so bad that I don't do anything. ::sigh::

That's about all I've time for right now. It's late and I have a couple more hours worth of housework before I can go to bed and it's back to work again tomorrow, too.

Have a lovely week!
