I want to share some crafting love with you...Find out about my very first giveaway below! Here goes:
The first object of my affection is paper. Since my swap partner has 2 little boys, I choose some boyish papers 8x8 papers from the stash, simply cut them into triangles, glued them to string, and made a lovely paper banner...Perfect for a b-day party or a little wall decor!
Favorite thing #2 is ribbon. I love love love ribbons of all colors, fabrics, and sizes! I included a short stack of ribbons that coordinated especially well with the banner colors.
And last but not least, favorite thing #5: handmade earrings! Lately I've been adding jewelry to my crafting repetoire. This cute pink earrings are my latest girly creations...I made 2 pairs! No girl can have too many earrings.
