What have I been up to? Well, first of all this week, I made my mom an overnight bag. It is a super cute pattern I have had stashed away for far too long. I did the strap differently than I would do in the future but it is great for my mom how it is now. It has pockets on both sides!
Next, I made a present for a dear friend of mine's daughter. She is having a birthday this weekend and I had this bright idea in my head and finally put it together. The steps? Well, first I painted the edges with bright green paint. Then the hubby (king of spray adhesive) sprayed the letter and placed the paper on it. Next he cut the letter out with an exacto knife. Repeated for the other side. Then I stapled the ribbon to it and glued the buttons on it. I didn't plan on adding buttons to the other side but the staple went all the way through the letter...oops! Still super cute!
Next I made some magnets with leftover scrapbook paper. I sprayed the magnet with spray adhesive and trimmed the paper with an exacto knife. Then hot glued buttons and ribbon. These were ugly free magnets from conferences. Now they are super cute! I may be a little button crazy these days!
