Crafy kitty

Here is a couple pictures of my crafty kitty.  Her name is Cupcake and she is SO sweet.  She loves to be around me when I am crafting, it's SO funny.  As soon as she hears my sewing machine start or sees me sitting in my craft room she is right on top of me.  She loves to be right next to me and even bats at my scissors or tries to grab at paper.  She is So fun. 

As I was finishing cutting my last of the Christmas Eve jammies she was right there with me.  I tied some extra pattern around her neck and she just layed around like it was a fashion accessory.  She cracks me up!

Doll beds

So I found this plan for a doll bed here.  I thought it looked easy enough and SO cheap.  It cost no more than $10 to make this bed and then scrap fabrics to make the bedding.  I found the measurements for the bedding here.  My husband built the beds in about 2 hours, start to finish.  I painted them and made the bedding.  That took longer than building by about a week! The girls are SO excited about these and are hoping that Santa will bring them a dolly to sleep in them!

A few of the things I've been making

I promised awhile ago that I would show off some of the things I've been working on and here they are!

 This is the towels I made for my card club girls for their gifts for Christmas.  They were much more time consuming than I originally thought!  I got the inspiration here.
This is the scrapbook page we made at Scrap club.  My friend Natalie created this beauty!

Here are a couple of the hair flowers I've been working on.  They are SO cute and the girls are loving them!

And here is the Mrs. Claus outfit I have been working on for a lady.  She is the same one I did the clown costume for.  She is dressing as Mrs. Claus at a senior center Christmas party.

She had this red velour dress she wanted me to embellish with white fur, make the apron and make the hat.  She was VERY pleased with the results!

I will of course have much more to show off with Christmas and all so stay tuned for the next set of things!
