more sequins!

Hello!  So sorry, I am not very good with blogging these days.  I spent about 2 weeks sewing 8 tote bags in 3 different sizes.  Two more tote bags to go.  I also sewed up 6 pot holders and 4 fabric wine bags.  Lots to share but not today.  Ha, I'm not ready yet. 

The only thing I can share today is the sequins I just got and sorted.  Yes, I sort the sequins!  It's pretty time consuming and also gives me a sore back and shoulder.  But I don't want to pack up those tiny broken bits that are floating in the package and I try to pick out the deformed ones.

These are super tiny 3 mm flower shaped sequins.  Or confetti or glitter or whatever you'd like to call them.  They are so cute.

I just listed them in my etsy store.

Oh, did I blog about this one?  I love these too.  They are super tiny about 1 mm.  They are tiny little beads you can also mix into your shaker cards with sequins.  Or use them in resin crafts.  I think some people even put these on their nails!

I have other items to list as well.  I got my next batch of clothespins in white, pink and blue.  Just need to photo and list.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Next time I will share my potholders/wine bags.

Your eye sight must be really good. Wow..customer's sure can expect quality from you!!! Much success on Etsy :)
OMG, you sorted all of those itty bitty sequins??? You are so patient. Both sequins and beads would look great in any shaker card. Can't wait to see your potholders and wine bags. Have a happy and crafty week.

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as
