Christmas Wreath

My friend told me about this cute wreath she had seen on Our Best Bites. She said she immediately thought of me, because I've made quite a few of those rolled flowers. I picked up the wreath at Walmart for $3.50 and the silver accent was $ .75, not too shabby. So I just rolled these flowers with the material I had from the yo-yo necklace and glued them onto felt and then glued them onto the wreath. Quick, easy and festive. This is another thing that B had on his Christmas list that is now crossed off!

Yo-Yo Necklace

I've seen these necklaces before, they sell some really cute ones on Etsy. I wanted to try my hand at one. I wanted the colors to be somewhat holiday-ish. I loved these fabrics at the store so this is what I came up with.

After looking at it, I felt like it needed something else, so I added some beads to the centers.

I brought this to the Girl's Night Gift Exchange and I want to make one for me in alternating colors so we don't match! But I love how it turned it, and it was really fun to make.

Raspberry Salad

A week ago, we went to a friend's birthday and they served this yummy raspberry salad. Micah and I couldn't stop thinking about it, so we set out to make our own. And it was also YUMMY!

Fabric Necklace Goodness

I've wanted to make one of these necklaces for soooo long. And I noticed I had a few rolled flowers that I never did anything with, so I decided it was time for a necklace.
This is what I did:
Rolled the flowers and hand sewed them.
I got a piece of felt for the back and glued the flowers on the way that I wanted them.
Then I got a chain and fit it to the length I wanted and added a toggle to the ends.
Then I sewed the ends of the chains onto the felt, the end!

I think I want to make one for Christmas too!
