Fairy Dust Necklace

My sweet girl loves fairies and all things magic.

So when I saw these little glass bottle pendants at Joann’s (2 for $2.49) I knew just what I needed to do.

A little glitter, a little glue to keep the cork secure, and a chain to hang it on.


She was thrilled.


For My Sister

I’m making a little package for my sister.

Inside is a little burnt-edge poppy brooch.

Inspired by the tutorial at A Lemon Squeezy Home.

A little white organza flower hair clip.

Courtesy of the tutorial by Disney at Ruffles and Stuff.

One of my ruffle flower brooches.

(This one is super ruffley.)

And a nifty jersey knit produce bag thanks to the tutorial at Delia Creates.

I’m also including some super awesome homemade deodorant.  It really is the best.

I hope she likes her package!

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teacher appreciation week kind of snuck up on me.

Which means I needed something simple.

Each teacher is getting a chocolate bar and a note tied with a ribbon.

The women teachers are getting a nice flower brooch pinned to their ribbon.

Sorry lone man teacher.  I ran out of time.
