Fantastic Video Tutorial and Cosmo Cricket Togetherness Altered Frame

First off, I want to share this fabulous video tutorial created by the super talented and sweet Patti. She created these super cute felt flowers and put them on a card recently. Just LOVED them and was curious how she made them. Well, she was kind enough to make a tutorial and a video one at that! You can check it out here. Aren't these flowers just as cool as can be?


I have been making weekly visits to the thrift store to find items to use and alter for my Christmas Bazaar. Lets face it, if I have to pay $5+ for a frame that means I have to charge a lot more for it (by the time you add the cost of adhesive, embellies, papers, etc). BUT, if I find a frame like I did below for a buck or less, I can charge a much more reasonable amount. So I found this frame and it JUMPED out at me! haha!
I used the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness line to change it and am happy with how it came out! Of course, I had to use the bear for props! We've had gloomy days lately so the picture is pretty dark no matter where I took it.

I'm in for it with Maddy. Yep, she is so...mischievous! Here she drug a empty tote that was awaiting a new home over to the light switch, took off the lid, flipped it over, put her blanket on it and somehow managed to climb up on it (she's got short legs, sot hat part kinda impressed me...haha!). Then it was the good ole trick of turning the light on, looking at me, giggling, turning it off, looking at me, giggling, turning it back on...and so it went! Yep...I'm in for it. We put a child safety gate at the top of our stairs. You have to pull a button back and lift the gate. She figured it out the other day so I put a second lock on it (one that hooks around cabinet door handles) and it didn't take her but 3 days to figure that one out either. It would be okay, but she thinks she's a BIG girl and tries to walk down the stairs like we do. Her legs are just to short at the moment that she can't quite do it!

Oh Kayla, we live the same life, lol! Just this week, a purple container just like that one was turned over and used as a stepstool in our house, too! ;)
