Scented Ribbon Now in My Etsy Shop

I just listed some of my scented crinkly ribbon tonight in my Etsy shop.  I also have 4 new choices in 1" that are not shown here.  There is silver cream, dark turquoise, plum pink and chocolate truffle to choose from.  I've been experimenting with scent on fabric/ribbon and my next batch will be strawberry rose scented.  It's so wonderful!  I can't wait to try it out.

Pin Keep Samplers

I've been admiring these pin keeps for awhile now and even purchased a couple this past year.  I love how pleasingly plump they are.  I watched a tutorial on how to make them and then went to my craft table and winged it.  Usually they're made with one fabric on the top and one on the bottom or in some cases four squares sewn together for the top.  I decided to make mine sampler style which is a fancy term I use when I have no plan.

I will have 12 kits for this pin keep at Tinsel & Treasures.  I also plan to teach my method at a future class {remember those? :}

It's a great project to use your scraps and broken bits on.  If it can be secured with a needle and thread you're golden. 

More peeks soon!

First Day Photo Opp

This past Wednesday my kids were cured of their boredom, school started yeah!  Is it just us or is the summer break too long?  After a couple of weeks off they were asking weekly how much longer until they were to go back.  In my daughters case I think she just wanted to go shopping for school.  And speaking of school shopping it's confirmed, I need to make an appointment to have my head examined.  I spent $119 on bra and panty sets...for a 6 year old.  What am I going to say, she HAD to have them.  

I know this looks like a tender moment between siblings but I'm pretty sure he pushed her or did the equivalent of the moment he heard the snap of my camera.  Apparently we've hit a wall and it's just not even close to cool to like your younger sister.

Oh right, I have one more child!  The one who is the last out the door everytime we depart the home.  He almost missed his photo opp.  This is the last year that they will all ever attend the same school at the same time.  It's the attack of the Super's.

I Managed To Make Some Stuff!

It's been so long!  How are you?  We enjoyed a busy summer of camping, beach days, BBQ's and the past 6 weeks have been non-stop football & cheer practice.  With Tinsel & Treasures coming up I've been spending little chunks of time at my craft table getting ready and I do have to say, I've missed crafting!  I've got more jewelry in the works and next week I'm going to make my first batch of hand poured candles in vintage inspired mason jars.  I'm pretty excited about that.  I hope to have time to make up some Fleur de Sel Caramels to wrap up and sell and I hope to have some sampler style pin keep kits too.  I'm going for quite the eclectic table this year that's for sure!!
