Want to win something free?

Want to win a set of those headband instructions? Pretty pretty headbands!!!

Just tweet or post a link on facebook to my blog, etsy site or main website. One entry per tweet or fb post. No auto entries - keep it real!

Then come back here and leave a comment telling me where you shared! Don't forget to comment - I will count up the entries from the blog.

Good luck! :)

So we're still waiting on those headbands

Did I mention time flies? Oh yes.

So although I said the new instructions would be ready on Monday, and they are sooo sooo close, they ended up being more involved than I anticipated. Or rather, there is enough there to sell as a headband tutorial, but it just wasn't enough, so I've made it more involved and let me say it is one kick a$$ set of instructions. Not only do you get the basic weave pattern, but it includes full color photos and even full instructions for several of the different weaving patterns and multiple numbers of strands. Some of the patterns include the basic 4 color weave, basic 5 color weave, long stripes, short stripes, stripe patterns (one of my favorites) stripe shapes (my daughter's favorite), checkerboard, dashed weave and dimensional weave. And even two little bonus sections that I'll surprise you with. There are hundreds of combinations. And they are so much fun!

So I will work my fingers off tomorrow morning to get these up and ready. But for now, you'll have to settle for a picture of just a few. :)

New Basket Weave Headband Instructions

Brand new Basket Weave Headband Instructions should be ready on Monday! I've been making them for a while but I haven't seen any other headbands made like this so I'm excited to share! There are SO many variations I just love making them! I know you will too, so keep an eye on the website, because if I finish earlier...I will post them!

Time just flies by and I got delayed a bit with these instructions because of sick kids, school commitments and volunteering (mostly at school). I just finished up a faux stained glass set of vases with the third grade class as our auction donation. Also several large local orders have occupied me. But I have a free afternoon so I will be writing away!

Also new combinations of ebooks perfect for vacation at the beach, aquarium or cruise! Beach Combo Pack including the Seashell, Seahorse and Goldfish are available bundled at a discount!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Lots of new ebooks!

Well the title says it all! There are now 18, count em, 18 different ebook designs to choose from if you are looking for a fun unique craft! And they are on sale on the website and instantly downloadable after paying. Of course you can still get them on etsy as well. But check out the new ebook pages on . The Horse and Unicorn have been out for about 3 weeks and the Princess Carriage came out shortly after that.

Be ready for another fun new design in the next week! The new instructions for this week were slightly delayed. I had both kids home with fevers (not at the same time) all week last week so didn't get a chance to finish them, but I am so excited about the next set and have been having a LOT of fun with them. They are so cool!!! Just wait, wait, wait til you see! I've never wanted to keep making something over and over - I like designing new things, but there are so many variations that I am getting addicted to making these and having a lot of fun.

Don't forget this is a great time to brush up on your shamrocks! The original ebook is available and has ribbon adjustments for 5 different widths of ribbon! So hairclip or front door decoration - this ebook has you covered!
