I have a pile of embroidery hoops in my garage and decided to put them to work. Because I don't exactly have time to whip out a needle and thread these days, I went for a short cut - crystals and sequins! Perfect for this time of the year, right?
Read on to see how I did it using Tulip Glam It Up Iron-On Crystals and Fashion Sequins!

I have a thing for kitschy Christmas ornaments, especially vintage ones. I'm constantly inspired by vintage crafts and when it comes to Christmas there are about a bazillion variations on the Christmas ornaments. I am particularly smitten with vintage beaded and sequin ornaments. You might recall my Hot Air Balloon Ornament from last year. This year I made a whole new batch to match my new vintage beaded ornament wreath.

Bright, Bold and Beautiful is how I roll when it comes to anything in my life. If you know my style by now then you know I love adding pops of color and black and white to everything! When I saw these beautiful sequins I just knew they had to make a quick appearance on my studio Christmas tree. Let's just say this, they have moved twice so far...now they are by themselves on some old branches I have in a vase and I think they like it better. These ornaments are fun to make and anyone can do them. When the holidays are over you can box them up carefully and reuse them the next year! PERK: you will NEVER find ornaments like your's in any store!
Let's get started!

Whether it’s for a holiday party at school, a Christmas gift for grandma or for their best friend, making homemade cards is a great way for kids to share the joy of the season. I have a really big stash of buttons so I thought I would show you and the kids how use them to decorate simple cards for the holidays.

My hands get really cold come the winter and for some reason my office is like an ice box if it's lower than 50 degrees outside. Since I still have to work even if my hands feel like ice cubes, I've started wearing fingerless gloves. And when I realized I could make my own, my collection grew like you wouldn't believe!
