It's Spring time!

Wow I can't believe I haven't updated my blog lately. It is finally spring and It's funny how busy one can get and then all of a sudden you look back at your week and say where did it go? I want to thank my Friend Gem for Reminding me to update my blog. Gem is another crafty girl , Check out her blog at
So today I am going to go back a bit and post a few different things. Let's start with my sparkly nails: I had been in a very PINK mood so I decided 2 weeks ago to do this fun look. Known in the Nail world as Glitter Nails or "Rockstar".

Hopefully by next week I will have changed this out, I am getting bored with it now since I have been wearing them for 2 weeks.

Ok on to my next item. My niece just a smidge before her 12th birthday and I have been sewing together. She is an adorable tween and I love teaching all my crafty stuff. I think I have the inner spirit of a 12 year old girl...I LOVE Glitter! and all things sparkly, my friend Amanda says we are fish (her and I) because we love sparkly stuff.  Last week I was teaching my niece how to sew, so here are pictures of her sewing herself this cute little bag. She even pick out that cute fabric from my fabric stash! Next we are going to sew a super cute Mermaid bottom for her mono fin. I know she will just look adorable! and make a beautiful Mermaid!

All Done! How cute is that?

I just know she is going to grow up to be a super crafter!

Oh and I forgot to post what I made for my daughter for Easter.
This is supposed to be a small Hobo type purse /bag, but she was in great need of a new make-up bag, yes she can fill this at least 1/2 full with her make-up. It is so cute! I just had to make her one.

I got the free pattern from

This is called a Grab bag

Well I guess this week's theme was sewing, next week I will change it up a bit!
Thanks for stopping by!
