Reminder! Finds of the day! Plugging a friend!

#8
Don't forget I have another giveaway in progress.  It's not as big and magnificent as my previous giveaway, but I still think it's a nice little bundle of things.  Check it out here to enter!  Good luck!

(4 Christmas Cards, 2 ribbon flower clips)

Technically this is my post for the day for Blogtoberfest, which is lame.  But I promise that I'm SUPER BUSY.  I'm at work all day today, and as soon as I get home from work I need to leave again to go to my friend's baby shower to give her this...





...hamper full of baby goodies!!  I should have taken a photo of it before I put on the cellophane.. the contents are super cute and I've taken a liking to doing up baby hamper's all funky and fun.  I'll try and remember to photograph the next one before I wrap it up. 

As usual all of you fellow bloggers are inspiring me.  Here are a few things I saw just this morning that I either want to do, or dreamed I had the skills to do.

1. Cara from Me? A Mom? made this AWESOME name badge for herself.  I want one.  And I don't even have anywhere to wear it.












2. Adele from Adelisa Designs made this awesome card at one of her Card Classes last weekend.  I want to learn how to do the ribbon like that.  I often do the rippled ribbon but it's all perfect and neat.. I think I like this messy look better.
















3.  The amazing Kate from Foxs Lane made this vintage dress with a sewn-in apron.  It is to DIE FOR!  But I can't sew those kind of clothes yet.  Practise practise practise.  I'm starting small.

















4.  Kirsty from kootoyoo just won this handmade vintage granny square ring.  I want one and I want to learn how to make my own rings.  I have huge fingers and have never in my entire life found a decorative/dress ring that has fit a finger other then my pinky.  Stupid fat fingers!!












I also might do a plug for a friend of mine.  Her name is Ami and she is pretty much amazing.  Please check out her blog and her madeit store (just search for Chirp under User/Store name).  Here's some of the cool stuff she's made: (Oh and she has a giveaway on her blog ATM too)
Hair clips








Fabric Flower Brooche/Clip








Fabric Flower headband








Vintage button rings. ( I want these )













Vintage button earrings ( I want these too )











I told you she was clever.  Check it out!

I promise a more productive post for tomorrow filled with goodies I've made delicious homemade items made by me!

Until tomorrow!!

Christy
