Labor Day!!!!

Okay, so this is my way to enjoy the Labor Day weekend! DH is out working on the yard and I've been busy in the "s"craproom again!

More hairbows for the Katiebug!

Also, finally worked some more with the wall hanging that I have been working on for a while now!

Funny, how I start something so simple, decide I don't like the way it is looking and leave it alone for a while and, all of a sudden, everything starts coming together just the way you want it to.  That's the way I work most of the time. Too many ideas and not enough time to see them thru. Oh, well, I will complete those UFOs sooner or later.

Hayden's & Blaine's Stepstools

Okay, so I finally got the boys stepstools completed and then forgot to upload the pix. So, here they are...

And, while I am at it, here's the picture of the treasure box I completed last week as well.

This can be used for keeping all your little treasures in. Although you can't see in the photo, there is a liner in the lid made of tulle so this could be used for potpourri as well as a keeper of jewelry or hairbows, etc. Just a nice place to keep all those mementos in. It is a paper box with two coats of white acrylic paint on it. Then, I added a ruffle of tulle on the lid. I wrapped that in a wide grosgrain lavendar ribbon band with the narrower satin lavendar ribbon on top of that. And, yes, those are "some" of the roses I have been busy making lately. I still have two of these to work on. Then, it is on to the wooden boxes, cards, candle jars, keepsake name plates and other items I have "planned" to complete in the near future.
