Borrowed computer

Our computer is out being serviced again and we are crossing our fingers it will still keep going, although we know we will have to break down and get a new one. This computer is a laptop we borrowed and I'm still trying to adjust. I've been busy stitching and trying to sell my flowers but not much luck there. Oh well, maybe I will come upon the one  thing people will like to buy. Have a great weekend and hopefully we get our computer back Monday.

I Need Your Feedback...

I made some fun headband accesories and I want to know what you think. I saw something like this on a blog but I can't seem to find it to give them credit, I'm sorry. These are made from scraps of fabric, sewn onto felt. I add two alligator clips to clip onto any headband also I added a vintage earring to the top to finish it off. I think they're cute and we even clipped it onto a necklace. They are in my etsy shop too. Tell me what you think of them. Thanx.

Isn't my daughter a great model...

Coffee Filter Flowers

I'm going to try to do a tutorial on how I made the cupcake liner flowers for my wreath but I'm going to do it with coffee filters. First are your supplies...Coffee filters, about 19 gauge wire,and needle nose pliers.
Next I took about 12 filters and  keeping them together turn them inside out.

Then I poked my finger in the middle and gathered them together, like this...

Then I wrapped a piece of wire, about 8 or 10 inches long, around the bottom... using the pliers to twist and  tighten it. Then very carefully I separate each layer. It might tear on you like mine did and since it was a big tear I tore part of it off but left the rest and you really couldn't tell.

This is the tear.Then I pushed it all up and then kind of fluffed it out. You can use the brown one's, (I LOVE the look of those) or you can mix some paint in water, put it in a squirt bottle and spray it after or before you put it together, for different colors. The cupcake liners I used 6 and they were a little tougher to work with, because the were waxy and thicker. Just be patient and they'll come together. There fun to do once you get the hang of it.
