Mom's Jar

My sister and I created this jar for our Mom for Christmas. We came up with a list of 52 things we were thankful for about her and put each one on a strip for her to pull out. Then included the instructions: to pull one out each week and know that we are so thankful for her. What a wonderful gift!! Thinking of the 52 things was not hard, Mom....

Quilled Invitation

Here is a wedding invitation I quilled around for some friends. They are getting married next weekend and had the red ribbon already in the invitation. I kept the red ribbon on the invitation and pulled in some red with the two hearts in the corner. I tried to make my quilling match the flower strip on the bottom of the invitation. Then I was excited to find this frame that matched that would hold the depth of the quilling! Congrats to the Adams'!

Crazy Scarf

This is the craft I made with my crazy yarns I got on sale last week. I cut two lengths of them for each "string" in the braid and added some fabrics and other yarns I had at the house already. Then tied a knot, braided them together and tied another knot. What do you think?

I got all of these yarns at Hobby Lobby for 50 cents each today!!! :) Very, very exciting! I have a fun project idea too. Can't wait to finish my current project so I can try it out!
