~~**Pin Cushion Dress Form**~~

HAY CRAFTERS... ya know what day it is..............
It's HUMP!!
.... and hope its a wonderful day in your crafting world!!!
Today I wanted to share a Pin Cushion I did for my daughter... She has begun creating stick pins for her own personal use... and while on a trip to Joanns she found an AWESOME deal on these dress forms and grabbed us up some... She came out of the store and said, "Mom, close your eyes"... so I did and when she told me to open them I gave her a big ole' smooch... she had gotten me 2 and her one for just $4.00 a piece... I said SCORE!!!!!... She then informed she wanted hers done up as a pin cushion... now, I took this thing apart twice before I was happy with it. She bought the material she wanted to use from Walmart which I made the skirt and pin cushion ut of and stuffed it with polyfil. I then added mulberry flowers, leaves, pearls, ribbon, siemans, charms, lace, button from Miriam's Crafting Supplies and flatbacks. She pained the base of it black and while I worked on another project she also mod podged the top of it with a variety of scraps I had... and I happy to say... SHE LOVES IT!!!!... I hate to see it go home with!!!.. Lucky me though I have some extra's and can make myself one... hehehe! I will also be submitting this in submitted this at
Hope you enjoy and please take a look around while your here...

Now I am not a sewer... this is all done with hot glue and you'd never know it...

Hello Happy Crafters...
I wanted to share with everyone these Christmas Ornaments I did for a Christmas Ornament swap I participated in at Scrapbook Friends & More Crafts... I REALLY enjoyed making these! I didn't want to share till my secret partner had recieved them... and now I am in the clear! She recieved them Wednesday and let me know she LOVED them. I am so glad and hope she enjoys them for many years. We got a feel via a questioneer of ideas about our partner.... mine loves cats and blue... she has a tree she is working on decorating with cats/kittens! So from there I new I wanted to incorporate cats on them.... are you ready???....... here they are!!!....

Hair Bow Holder... using PINQUE PEACOCK Products

Its Another Manic Monday... but its gonna be my fun day!!!...
Hope its a great day for you in your own little crafty corner!!!
Today I have a hair bow holder I made using some AWESOME products from PINQUE PEACOCK!!! I hope you got to join us for our JULY NEW RELEASE over the weekend.. if not, hey thats okay you still have till Wednesday! Just hop on over to the blog and get in on the fun... you'll find the whole line up and can check out the FABULOUS projects by the PINQUETTES!!... and get in on some COOL prizes! BUT... speaking of the BLOG HOP... I made a hairbow and I embellished it with the NEW RELEASE Products.... so I thought why not make a hairbow holder. I had a wooden letter "R" and I decided to paint and found these cool glitter flatbacks that I added to it. Then attached some black and white gingham ribbon. Next I placed some CA UTE lady bug flatbacks along the ribbon. Next I made a bow for the hanger to hang it up using a black ribbed ribbon and added another ladybug. I used the Yellow Ladybugs 1.5 Fabric Covered Buttons (one of my favs) from PINQUE PEACOCK to weight down the ribbon at the ends and also as a center to the hanger... and TAAA DAAA.....

Isn't it cute?!?!??!.. I love ladybugs :)
I really hope you enjoyed my my project I have made and be sure to stop by
PINQUE PEACOCK to check out all the awesome products for your crafting needs.
