A baby gift.

This sweet treat is for my new niece. Rylie May. I dyed the onesie then freezer paper stenciled the "R" and added chiffon ruffles to the ever so sweet bum. Just another idea if you need a reason to use your crafting skills. Enjoy!!

Fun apps to get!

I'm sharing the love. I'm constantly in the apple app store searching for fun new apps. Here are a couple I thought I would share with you.

Flashlight free by ihandy. Great I your nursing in he middle of the night and don't want to turn on a lamp. This luminates the room just enough so you can see what your doing.

My fitness pal free. Great calorie counter and fitness diary. Has almost every food already stored in the data base. Helps keep you on your write management track.

Draw something. Have you hopped aboard that craze yet?? Ooh so fun!!!

shabby flower

a simple new flower for the simple crafter. 

cut several flowers ranging from small to big

working in clock wise motion, stretch the edge, by fraying it

it makes the edges curl up slightly and add a great shabby texture.

sew them together in the center

embellish or put on a headband or clip!

wondering about that cute skirt?  Use this tutorial HERE.


Photoshop and instagram

I may just add a new segment to my blog about my favorite apps from the apple store. Photoshop express and instagram do amazing things together. Look at these photos!! Greyson at 3 mo.
