I made this years ago, but just found it in my pictures and thought I would share it on my blog. It's also in my SCS gallery, so you might have seen it before. I just punched a bunch of different colors of squares with my 3/4" square punch in colors that matched his room, printed off a clip art palm tree, punched three "coconuts," stamped the monkey (a retired SU! stamp--it's significant because his room was decorated with monkeys and they call him monkey as a nickname), cut it out, and hung it on my chipboard "W" that I colored with Old Olive Craft Ink. I stamped the rest of the letters with OO craft ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, and added the whole thing to a $3.00 frame I got from Wal-Mart. It's originally a two-up frame, but I cut out the divider between the two small 4x6 mats to make one long mat. Pretty simple! I love name frames and I love the colors in this one! :) Thanks for looking!

Another barrette from Saturday. The flowers and buttons are from a Making Memories embellishment jar I got a while back. I stitched them all together with embroidery floss. I have one of these that I kept for Ava as well and it looks SO cute in her hair. :)

Well, the "craft show" we went to was not actually a craft show at all...it was a flea market. Not exactly the kind of venue to sell a lot of crafty things. We sold two scrapbooks and two cards, total. I made two of the scrapbooks and one of the cards, though, so that was a bit of an ego boost! :) Here's another one of the clips that we had for sale, that obviously didn't sell. I think we will do better when we are actually at an appropriate venue for our goods. Let me know what you think of the clips...I am proud of them! :)

Sorry about the long lag, guys. Life just got in the way of my creative mojo. I finished this little hair clip up tonight because me and my two partners in crafting, Vickie and Delaina, are going to be doing a craft show tomorrow. I made this from some felt and leftover fabric from my niece's quilt that I made at Christmas time. I think it turned out pretty cute. The button is a really old one from SEI. The card that it's matted on is a piece of Kiwi Kiss that I stamped with the swirl from Priceless with Kiwi Kiss ink and then trimmed the edge with the scallop edge border punch by SU! I love the way these look on the cards. Thanks for looking! :)
