Craft Mode

This week I have been in serious crafting mode. Here are a few things I've made and so much more coming this weekend!! I am very thankful for all the good that has been happening in my life lately, especially with last week's news. Thanks again to all my friends that have been there for me :) Especially our weekly chats, I look forward to them every week! The last one we had was my favorite :) CONFESSION.... ;)

Treasure box I made for Ashley's mom. She loved the one I made for Ashley so I made her one too :)

Inside has a cute felt bottom

I made my mom her own little chapstick cozie. She loved the first one I made and that's pretty much the only thing I know how to crochet right now, lol. Even embroidered a little leaf on there.

The back is just yellow felt.

It's big enough to put 2 chapsticks in.

I also completed another Style School project. It was supposed to be fabric earrings, but since I don't wear earrings hardly at all, I made them into fabric magnets. I ran out of buttons else I would have made like 50 of them.. They are so easy and fun to make!! I plan on making a bunch this week :)

In other good news I won a giveaway today!!! Meesh aka Emjay aka Aquafrolic had a Mardi Gras giveaway and I won a KING CAKE!!! I am so excited! I haven't had one in over 6 years. I miss Louisiana so much and this will make me feel at home again :)
Thanks Meesh!!

Also, I got my Happy Mail names today!! Can we say EXCITED??? Laura, Lehua and Mandy.. I am so happy I got you guys as Happy Mail partners. LOVE YOU GUYS!! I also want to give a huge shout out to my Jamie :) Without her Happy Mail would not exist. Thank you for all the hard work, time and dedication you have put into putting together Happy Mail for all of us! Your the best!!

I have a HUGE to-do list for this weekend:
