Old jeans upcycle.

I keep alot of old clothes with intentions to find an upcycling project to use them for.  Yesterday I had some success with my intentions!!!  I decided that I needed to make a bunch of new headbands for myself.  I only had a few and there just isn't enough variety!!!  So I pulled out one of my storage tubs with old clothes in them, and on the top was a pair of old jeans.  I pulled them out and thought that a denim headband would look fantastic!!! 

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  What do you think?

I think I'll be making a few more just like this!  I have already got a few compliments today.  Best part is, they're easy to make!

My creative space - Make your own envelope.

I love finding cool things on Etsy, Madeit & Craftumi.  Unique things.  Like envelope templates.  I mentioned it in a previous post.  But I've been busy making lots of them!!  Don't they look awesome??

Monday - a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

This week has not started out so well.  But we won't dwell too much on that. 

Instead I'm going to celebrate selling these in my store over the weekend.

And buying this for my American MIL for Christmas (I like starting early!) from here.

I'm also going to focus on the fact that over the weekend I bought...
and of course I bought these go to with it..

Now I can cut up my fabric with precision and ease!  I am hoping to cut up some fat quarters this week to pop in my Craftumi store.

I hope your week has started out fantastically!!
