Happy Easter Weekend!!

Happy Easter!! 

I wanted to show off these sweet little hair bows I made for my sweet little ones
for Easter to match their dresses. There are not
really any shops in my area that sell hair bows like these, and I didn't
have enough time to order some online,
I thought I'd try my hand at making them. They are so expensive to buy, but
soooo easy to make, I cant believe I haven't made them before now!!
from a great tutorial I found online
I am resisting the urge to attach a cute little cupcake charm to the middle of
the bows since these are for Easter. However, I am thinking of crafting up some
other hair bows that I can decorate with my charms and adding them to my etsy
shop, but who knows! 

other news I did make some Carrot Cake  Cupcake Charms in honor of Easter!
Who could resist these cute little spicy delicacies? The bases of these cupcakes
are a bit different than my normal cupcakes, they are textured and look more
like "real" cupcakes. I have been experimenting with different styles
lately. I am more fond of the more whimsical side instead of more realistic, but
I do like the way these bases look.  They will be going into my etsy shop
soon, when I can get a better picture of them. It is overcast and storming here
today, so this is the best shot I could get!!

I do
hope everyone has a great Easter!! Have a great weekend!!

Cute as a button!!


Just added to the shoppe today, new sweetly scented button embellishments !! Sprinkled Ice Cream Cones and Cupcakes!! They smell as sweet as they look! These would be really cute on just about anything that needs a little sweetening up dont you think!? I can definately see these on a handmade birthday card, or in a hairbow. They can also be made without the holes if you prefer!

Spring Cleaning, updates and new things to come!!

I am beginning to dust off the cobwebs on this blog.. Wow! Has it really been almost 9 months since I've posted last??!! man! So much has happened... I have been really busy with moving and the new addition to our family and trying to revamp my shop that time has really gotten away from me. I am hoping that I can maintain this blog better this time around, as I am in the process of changing around my etsy shop, adding more charms and brand new clothespin dollies. I also plan on adding some paper tags and such to my shoppe in the near future.
