I know it's been awhile (especially when people ask about me about it the Farmer's Market) since I made up bookmarks made from scraps of paper and other fun stuff from other projects. Here are five new ones I did this afternoon. Of course, there are quotes on all of them, although some are upside down to show that the back is decorated as well. So I guess, there really isn't a back or wrong side with these. Look for them at the next Farmer's Market or on ArtFire.... » Read More

As I was thinking in the shower (don't you think in the shower) about the sale I wanted to do for this weekend. I was thinking, of course, of turkey day. Then there's the day after run all over to buy things day - which is now infringing upon Thanksgiving. Now there's a Shop Small Business Saturday the day after that.

Everything has already been reduced - http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/SomewhitherArts

So, I made my little niece a tutu and she just loved it. The best thing was that it was inexpensive, easy and best of all (for me) was that included absolutely no sewing.
You will need:
First take your ribbon and cut it to go around the waist of the person you are making it for plus 40 inches. Tie a know 20" in at each end of the ribbon. If desired, you can use fray check on the end of the ribbon. Option, you can also use an elastic head band, but you need to make sure that it will fit around the waist of your child and it is not too tight. I like ribbon because it makes a pretty bow and it easy to take off for bathroom b... » Read More
Yesterday, I babysat for my husband's niece's kids. So, we'll just
shorten that up to me watching my nieces for a few hours. It had been a
long time since I watched kids that young - both in diapers. And yes,
that's a skill you never do forget. They were such good little kids.
Granted, one is only six months and basically ate and slept with a
little holding and playing. But no bouncy seat, the little cutie did not
like that. The older niece who is around 2 years old is just so cute! I
hadn't seem them in a little while. I made her a little tutu while I
was there, that'll be another blog post. One of her toys - a leap frog
