Breast Cancer Awareness

I was asked to create a Breast Cancer Awareness Dream Catcher for a Co-Worker.  I was very excited to do this project.  I had all these ideas.  So I got out all my supplies and began creating.

Did you know?  Breast Cancer is one of the most common cancers in females.

  • Each year in the United States alone, more than 200,000 women get breast cancer and more than 40,000 women die from the disease.

It’s very important to make people aware and to get routine checkups!!!!

I hope  y’all love my creation.

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.

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!!!

Boho Dream Catcher-Love How pretty these are.

 

Hello all!

Very Exciting and Beautiful project.

I received all my items to make my niece a Boho Dream Catcher for her birthday.  I was so excited to start this project that I dug right into designing it and creating it with all the beautiful treasures I had collected, lace of all kinds, pretty bead ribbon, satin ribbons in teals and whites, gorgeous white and turquoise feathers, and that lovely hand crocheted doily.   I got to work assembling my dream catcher.  The hardest part was getting that doily just right inside that embroidery hoop.  With a little white thread and some maneuvering FINALLY I got it into position.  I then started adding my Lace ribbons.  I added the largest lace to the center and then went from biggest to smallest spreading evenly and did the same with the color so that the teals and turquoises would be evenly throughout the entire bottom.  It was so exciting seeing it come to life.   I love these beautiful boho dream catchers.   I was so happy with the result that I immediately texted my sister pictures of my creation.  I explained it was for Ashlynn’s birthday. My sister said she will love it.  The colors are perfect and she has been wanting to do a feature wall of dream catchers. I was happy to hear that my choice would be a hit with my niece.

 

The Big Reveal =)
