Forever Spring Garden III *Coin Purse — Made by Nina

So touching.  Please check out this shop.  She does beautiful work! 

I know I’ve been posting a LOT of coin purses recently. I promise this will be the last for a short while as I am quite busy on a new blanket (excited) and I also have a couple of other projects in the waiting… oh AND a custom order which is non-purse related. I wouldn’t […]

Magnolia Market Waco, Texas

a14I just got back from Texas.  I had been dying to check out Magnolia Market.  Many of you may know of this place from HGTV’s show Fixer Upper featuring Chip and JoAnna Gains.  It is my favorite show.   I had gone home to visit my family and we decided to make a day trip  and visit since its only 2 hours away from my parents and sisters places.    What a fun place.  It is very family oriented.  There is pretty much something to do for everyone.  They have the main store (which is beautiful),  a bakery and was extremely popular and kept a line out the door the entire time we were there,  numberous food trucks around the property with many different types of food,  a pretty garden and garden shop,  and yes those SILOS that are being revamped.  I really had a nice time browsing all the pretty home decorations and souvenirs.   The place is crowded but everyone was polite and respectful.  They have plenty of people to check you out which made the wait time quick.  If you are ever out that way, I recommend checking this place out.

 

Here are some more pics of my trip.

 

My beautiful nieces had a fun time too =)

It was a fun day and a nice trip.

Have a fabulous day everyone!!!

BOHO Birthday Decorations-Handmade

boho paper3

My Niece turns 8 this month.    I am going home (Texas) this year and will actually get to be there close enough to her birthday to give her a birthday party.   I decided on the BOHO theme.   I am making banners and cupcake topper’s.  I am also going to create  a bunch of cut outs so that the kids can make their own dream catchers.

This is a great link with a bunch of different ideas to create dream catchers.  All kid friendly.

http://www.tinyfry.com/make-dream-catcher-kids/

Lots of great ideas.  I took from all of them.   I purchased the following items.

embroidery hoops (consumer crafts has the size I wanted 3 for $1.00)

-Yarn (I chose pink, blue, white)

-pipe cleaners ( all colors and styles)

-Beads

-Feathers

-On my cricut, I cut out a bunch of shapes.  Butterflies, hearts, stars, arrows, musical notes,  etc.

I purchased enough supplies for 18 kids (more than enough) for about $30.  I think it will provide tons of fun for the kids.

I then chose my Paper for my decorations.  =)

 

I went to designing on my Cricut and off to cutting  I went.   I cut out banner shapes, tepee shapes, and mini dream catchers.  I used some pretty boho stickers and some matching birthday embellishments as well as some gold glittery ribbons.  The end result was some pretty banners and cupcake topper’s.

 

Now all I need to do is add some pretty balloons, cupcakes, kids food.  All party ready.  I am excited to have this party. I will have to share the dream catchers that the kids create.

Thanks for visiting everyone!

Have a fabulous day!!!
