Meet Violet. She is the latest addition to my new fabric flower creations. I am having so much fun making these. This one is attached to two ribbons so she can be worn several ways, such as a headband, choker, or even a bracelet.
I've been doing some rearranging of my creative space and boy have I collected a lot of crafty stuff. More than I will probably ever use. Once I get things more organized I'm going to have to do some destashing. I dream of the day I can have a studio and have everything in one room. Right now it's all over the house and garage. AAAHHH someday!!!!

So I don't know about everyone else, but I have the worst time thinking of cute names for my creations when I list them. I see most people give their items names on etsy rather than just pink flower for example, but it doesn't come as easily to me. Anyway I've decided to just go with whatever pops in my head when I look at the finished product. For this set of bobby pins Bubble Gum was the first thing so that is their name. The are made with several fabric layers in pink and white. They are available in my shop. Enjoy!!!

I know I've been away for quite awhile, but I have made some new creations and am going to try and get back in the swing of creating and sharing. It has been really tough for me to find a balance between work and play. My schedule can change at a moments notice and it just wears me out at times. Any how on to my latest creations.
I have been playing with lots of different types of sheer fabrics and layering them into flowers for various items. I love getting out a big pile of fabric and just putting all kinds of color combos together. My first two are brooches. The first is Gypsy a blend of purples, blues, and greens. The second is Apricot a blend of mint green and peach with silver glitter accents. They are both available in my shop.
