Birthday Crown

Make birthdays a little extra special at your house with a birthday crown.

It just makes me happy... I want to wear it on my birthday too.

I was in the middle of making my advent calendar ornaments...
so I went a little crazy and blanket stitched all of the letters

 But it was worth is... doesn't it look so cute?

And of course... if big sister tries it does little sister.

Wanna add this to your birthday fun?

Sorry... no tutorial to link up, I just copied a friend who had made this.

Camping Satchel

 We had a birthday party at our house, and made these quick and easy satchels to go along with our camping birthday theme.
 It was the perfect size for holding our little party favors.
 It has a pocket on the back.

I love gathered fabric... it looks so cute on the front of this bag.

I also have never done the freezer paper paint, but tried it out with this project... 
it was a very quick and easy way to personalize the bags. 

I won't lie... I really love to look at them.

I really think it turned out so cute.

Here they are.
All lined up and ready to be handed out at the party.

So, if the lil' person in your house needs a satchel to tote around treasures...

Heart Hand Warmers

These were the hand warmers that we made for a teacher gift.
At the preschool the kids are able to go and play outside in a little play area everyday.
Unless it is raining or below 25ยบ.
So that means these poor teachers have to stand outside with them an monitor them.
So, when I saw this clever idea all over pinterest I knew it was the perfect Valentine gift for our preschool teachers. 

On the back it said,
"You warm my heart"
with heating instructions (30-60 secs in the mic)
It was a quick and easy Valentine to whip up to show the teachers how much we appreciate them.

Even though Valentine's Day has come and gone, these still are a fun gift idea to give for no reason at all... or to make for yourself to keep your hands warm.
So if you want a warm heart and warm hands...
