I love gifts!

Giving gifts that is...

Went to my friend Danielle's housewarming party so I made her this set of fabric coasters they match with how she decorated her new house.

Anyway I'm getting ready for I've been pretty busy...although I'm hoping to take some time off this weekend and visit Alba in Oakland, I need the break!

All settled in

So I am all moved in back to my parents. I drove a HUGE uhaul for the first time yesterday and let me tell you that was an interesting experience! Anyway now all I have to do is organize my room, get a desk, and a new bed frame.

In other news I finished this doll I made for my mini-me (my goddaughter) and since making dolls are not my specialty and this was for a gift that had to be done in about a week I used Emily's Black Apple Doll pattern from the Martha Stewart website HERE but I made the little bloomers and the dress from scratch I had to make my own pattern for it...yes it did take me almost a week to finish it but I think it turned out pretty good.

aren't her bloomers cute?

So last weekend I went to Joann's and I got some fabric I waited about an hour to get my fabric cut but it was worth it!

Oh and I made some earrings and a necklace...these are the kind of necklaces I will be selling at Handborn oh yeah I forgot to say it's been confirmed that I will be having a spot there at the end of this month. The necklaces and earrings are all made from vintage and new beads and sterling silver chain and findings.

Now I'm going to focus on making stuff for the craft bazaar and starting my first quilt!
