MIA

Dear Readers,

I sincerely apologize for my lack of posts as of late. This is primarily due to two reasons:

(1.) On Labor Day weekend, my boyfriend proposed...Yep! I'm engaged!!

(2.) My internal hard drive AND my external hard drive BOTH crashed...Yes, they are toast...isn't it ironic that my back-up drive also died?? Ugh! The external one is hanging out with the Geek Squad right now...keeping my fingers crossed.

But no worries. I'll be taking new pics of any new cooking and crafting adventures...and inevitably, wedding stuff too...

Thanks for understanding!

Hair Rosettes

I made these little hair clips and pins for a co-worker's little girl...mostly because I was feeling crafty and I have no kids! :-P

All you need is scraps of ribbon and a needle and thread!

Just do a running stitch and when you pull the thread, it'll form a little rosette! Do a few extra stitches to keep it in place.

I attached some clips and brooch pins (or both) so she could wear them in her hair, on a headband, on a dress, on her shoes, on a belt/sash, etc.

You can stack more than one and just stitch them together.
