Nancy has the most beautiful skin ever. Besides looking like she could have been the coppertone baby when she was little………..she is a real sweetie. I love the little gift she gave everyone at a recent blog conference. It has the ever so popular chevron design, which I say is a zigzag. Only because I’m old.
She has all kinds of crafty things to do on her blog. You will never believe she cut this shirt apart to make this adorable head band. The shirt was on sale and she just knew she could do something with it if she didn’t end up wearing it. Pretty good huh?
Because she has that long blond hair, she wears a lot of headbands. I think many of you will love the headband tutorial she has. Very cute way to personalize your accessories with ribbon.
I get SO jealous of all you ladies who can just whip up a cute gift, or make some cute pillows. Sigh. Maybe someday when I finally get my craft room organized, I’ll pull out my mom’s sewing machine and play around. Maybe.
I would love to make cute gifts like that above or the little kid apron below. She also has tutorials on how to make a jewelry hanger and those really cute rolled flowers. Believe it not, I think I could make that bird. Following her tutorial, I’m confident I could.
But I am not going to try the skirt……….I would wear it if someone else made it, but I’m not ready for any gathering or ruffles. Maybe a pillow or something, but no ruffles. We don’t want me cursing. So there you go……now your job is to surprise her for me. Once you’re there, I hope you’ll cruise around her blog and find a tutorial to play with this week. A creative week is better than a boring week, right?
I’ll be having a LIVE CHAT Wednesday evening. I’ll let you know more tomorrow! I hope you’ll join me. I’d hate to be the only person in the chat room.
