Doesn't everyone love ladybugs? I know that I sure do! =) My daughter will be turning 6 next month and she insisted that she have a ladybug themed party. I am so excited to have the party. =) From her birthday outfit, to the loot bag goodies, and the birthday cake; everything is going to have a ladybug theme to it. It is going to come together so nicely. I am making everything that will be going in the loot bag. I will be sure to post pictures of the process as it comes alone. =)

This is a new style of tooth fairy pillow that I have come up with. I already made tooth fairy pillows, which are in the actual shape of a tooth, but I wanted to make an actual pillow with the image of a tooth as the "pocket" on the front. I was able to find the template of Martha Stewart's website. =) It measures 5" x 5" and is available in a variety of colors.
I stumbled across Belinda's blog through a friend and hit a jackpot! =) She was selling some stamp sets that she didn't want anymore. They are both retired sets, but I have wanted them and didn't get the chance to get them when they were in the catalog. Here they are:

As you can tell from the pictures posted below, I have been on a felt cookie kick. =) These are felt cookies that are embellished with icing & sprinkles! The sprinkles are beads that are very securely stitched in place so they are not going anywhere. My own daughter loves to play bakery with the ones I have made for her and I use them frequently with my students in class.

They make a great gift for the little baker or an addition to any child's pretend kitchen collection!! These adorable sets are completely handmade and hand sewn with lots of care. It is made using high quality felt, securely stitched beads, cotton thread and anti-allergenic polyester fiberfill in a smoke free home.

Each cookie measures approx. 2.5" by 2.5" and is lightly stuffed to give it the look and feel of a real cookie!

What better way to make sure you do not lose your mittens this winter then to have a set of mitten clips to make sure they stay put and off of the ground! When mittens are taken off, they just hang off of your jacket and do not become lost. I have many more patterns available then just the pictures that I have posted.

Stampin' Up has been them in the past to help support others (when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers, when a tsunami struck Indonesia, when a hurricane destroyed New Orleans, and when wildfires ravaged Australia). Stampin' Up demonstrators have once again stepped forward and shown their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others (especially when disaster strikes and the need is the greatest).

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope.

As a Stampin' Up! customer, you can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set purchased will be donated to the American Red Cross: Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Here are a few examples of what you can make with this stamp set:

I was late putting in my pre-order from the new mini catalog and sale-a-bration catalog, so I just received my parcel this past week. I ordered everything with the new clear-mount stamps, rather then the wooden block. I absolutely love that they each come in a DVD size case, which will be perfect for storage. I also love that there is a small logo of each stamp that is inside pictured on the side, so it will be so easy to see what is inside the box. Here is what I ordered (minus Messages for Mom b/c I couldn't find an image of it):

Well Scripted

Fox & Friends

I {heart} Hearts

Whimsical Words

I cannot wait to start playing with these sets. Stay tuned b/c I will be posting pictures of the cards that I come up with!
Here is a picture of more of the felt cookies that I have come up with. These are just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

I have been busy playing with felt again! =) I have been working on making cookies. Here are my two newest creations and they are just in time for Valentine's Day.

First, I have cookies that are embellished with a small heart in the center. Second, I have cookies that are embellished with pink and red M & M's.

These would make a great gift for the little baker or an addition to any child's pretend kitchen collection!! Check out my Etsy site to see more of my felt creations!
