jumbo sized flower loom flowers

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

perusing the aisles of the 99cent store the other day, i saw these packages of brightly colored polyethelene rope. my first thought was that it looked and felt like jumbo sized plastic raffia. my second thought was how awesome would it be to make jumbo sized flower loom flowers with this stuff? totally awesome!! i wondered […]

hungarian honeycake overload

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

i had to do it, i couldn’t stop myself… honeycake chair! i probably could have stopped myself from making the gingerbread one, but i did it anyways… making the chairs reminded me of this little box i found, and i saw some coordinating items on etsy that i find pretty irresistable, like these shot glasses… […]

Thursday, August 4th, 2011
