A Little Announcement

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We spent it with a lot of our family and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, all the stress of making a present for literally everyone landed me with a horrible cold and the family got the stomach flu that’s going rampant around this time of […]

Holiday Magnet

I had made a few bows for a holiday activity and had them laying around. I was looking at some of my cards on my fridge and realized that the Ensenada, Mexico surfboard holding one of them up was kind of taking away from the beauty of the card. That’s when the light bulb went […]

Christmas Ruffle Bows

I had a little bit of leftover ruffled ribbon from my ruffled ribbon Christmas trees, and I decided to use it in a bow. I used the ruffled Forest Green Polka Dot Ribbon as the base of the bow. I hot glued it onto felt and then cut around the glue when it dried. For […]

Family Stockings

Our family collection is complete! Dad and Ryan both have stockings now. See Mom’s on the Quilted Christmas Stocking post. The hardest part to these stockings is the personalization of the names and the stitching around them. If you just wanted to iron on the fabric, it will save you about an hour. Without this, […]

North Pole Satin Bow

Most of the ribbon for this bow came from the North Pole Seasonal Ribbon Mix. I started with the Basic Boutique Bow using 1 1/2″ Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in Apple Green. Then I did Spikes using 7/8″ Polka Dot Ribbon in Red/White and 5/8″ Polka Dot Ribbon in Green/Red. I tried really hard this time […]
