Fun stuff

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

My hubby got me a dozen Shari's Berries Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and they are DELICIOUS!!
All the gals at work were jealous. And even some of the men too....LOL :)

Sorry it's been so long between post lately. Just so much going on around here. Working full time, getting estimates to replace some windows, getting ready to do some painting, etc.....not enough hours in the day.

My granddaughters love playing dress up and really like hair clips and funky headbands. SO, instead of spending money on these little things all the time, I decided to create some on my own for a fraction of the cost. As every crafter knows - you have to watch for the sales!! I hardly ever buy anything full price and I always take advantage of Joann's & Michael's coupons. Especially the one where you get and additional 15 to 20% off everything including sales prices. Who wouldn't take advantage of that right!

Here a few of the ones I have made so far. The first picture, the flowers were marked down to .99 cents and the clips were $1.99 regular price. I basically made these 3 clips for a whopping .52 cents each!!!!! I really liked the smaller flowers for these because the won't "overpower" my littlest granddaughters head.
 She will be 3 next month - my gosh where does that time go!

I really like the clip on the last picture. You can either wear it as a hair clip or as a pin!

Well, off to finish some more projects :)
