Okay, USPS says that sharpie_slut received yesterday. Here's what I sent:
Fairy doll, mystical-looking ribbon (both store-bought), a little soap, bath salts, an altered CD, an altered journal, & an ivy bowl that I painted mermaids on.. It also includes some sand, glass marbles, & a tealight candle for inside of that.
WhooHoo!! After not getting along with my sewing maching for several days.. I just whipped this baby up in like 10 minutes. I needed something to wear to work today.. and am verrry pleased with my result. Thanks so much for the hair elastic idea, the_bees_knees!
Inspired by the crafty goddess, mmcheezesandwich, I've decided to redecorate my mother's room for her birthday. It's not until September, but I made my first small (and oh so simple!) item today and am pleased with how it turned out.
I made my first diaper wreath this afternoon. It was super easy.. I just used tiny, clear hair elastics to hold together diapers after I slipped them over a foam wreath. Then I tied the extras on (pacifier, toy keys, baby lotion, etc.) and went a little crazy with the curling ribbon..
Yeay! Made one tonight.. The toughest part for me was the end that wasn't sewn up originally.. I had trouble folding it down and pressing it- unless, of course, I misunderstood the tutorial and just made it harder for myself!
