Altered cassette case stick pin holder

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you all had a beautiful weekend. I wanted to stop by today to share a project that I finished last night. After watching YT months ago I wanted to make a cassette case stick pin holder. My dear friend barb had sent me some a while back and so I decided to give it ago. 

was completely nervous when working on this as I had not ever made stick pins before and I have to tell you I LOVE the way the stick pins and the altered cassette case turned out. I made this for a sweet friend of mine in Australia. Isn't it beautiful??? 

Well thank you so much for stopping by. If you are interested in seeing more details or hear the products used, please head on over to my YT channel:
Hope you all have a blessed day.

Handmade burlap bag

     Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are all doing well and that you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I spent a quiet day at home with my son and my husband although toward the afternoon I sent him out to go fishing. Lol. Although he didn't catch anything that day, he did have a fishing partner. It was a snake that was sunbathing really close to him. Needless to say, it wasn't his most favorite fishing partner.

     So the last couple of days I have been wanting to try making a burlap bag for a friend. This was a real challenge for me as I am thinking I am lace challenged. I watch so many talented ladies use tons of different lace on their projects and make it look so easy. Well this was far from easy for me, but I made it work and I am happy with how it turned out. 

I think it turned out pretty good for being my first one. I hope my friend like it. I plan on filling it with lots of goodies for her. Anyways, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a beautifully blessed week.

Shabby chic lace butterflies

Good afternoon all. I am back with my fourth and final post of the day to share with you some lace butterflies I created. I just think these are so beautiful and look great on cards and other projects. For these butterflies, I used some lace I picked up from walmart and cut out 2 pieces for the wings. I attached a pearl stamen to the center for the antennas and finished it off with a little doodad flower and some beautiful AB flatback crystals. With the let over pieces from the cut up lace I created a tiny flower and added the same flower and crystals to it. I have made 3 sets of these to give as gifts.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a beautiful week. 

Shabby chic ornate plate charm

Good afternoon all. I am back with my 3rd post of the day to share with you a shabby chic ornate plate charm.  This is the first time I have attempted on making a charm and I just love how this turned out.

For this charm I followed a tutorial on YouTube that Liz Russell made. I started with a Tim holtz ornate plate and gesso and painted the plate. Added a image from a prima note card to the back and applied glossy accents to the top of the image. I created a few dangles out of some pearls and beads I had in my stash. On the side of the ornate plated I added a few I am roses flowers, a feather and a lace butterfly appliqué. I then attached it to a tag and added some lace and pearls to the bottom of the tag. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have an amazing day.

Shabby chic wall hanging

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. I wanted to stop by and share  with you a wall hanging I made for a friend. I really hope she loves it.
For the base of this wall hanging I used a heart chipboard page from a michaels mini album. To see how I created this piece please visit my YouTube channel. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a blessed day.
