The Next Martha?

Just kidding...but I do wish I could be the next Martha Stewart, that would be so fun.

I saw this idea on Martha's birthday show. The flowers are just shiny cardstock and hotglue. This project was really fun with big results. The flowers are big-probably 10-12 inches. These went on the tables for the girls b-day party.




Skylar is throwing a baby shower on Saturday for a dear friend's daughter. I love the family too, so I decided to hand make the gift. It is a taggie blanket. I love it. I think it turned out really well. Good thing I have extra material just in case I need to make one for a baby boy in the future....

Love the flowers. You picked great colors for them. I am so glad that you have time to craft. I don't know where you find it. Your blanket looks like mine.....we love the ribbons and put em' all over! It looks awesome....again, I'm a big fan of the colors and materials.
