Side Stitches

 I've picked a name for my little "business" (possibly an Etsy store). That name is ... Side Stitches!

Pysanky: Ukrainian Egg Decorating

I learned to do this over the weekend at the library!

Side Stitches

This is the blanket I made a little while back, all bundled up and ready for the baby shower!

Meanwhile, I've been working on headbands and barrettes! I can customize them to match any outfit, or in the case of this barrette, the fashionista's favorite colors. :-) Barrettes are $8, headbands are $10, all handmade and custom made-to-order.

I love pink and brown together!

Not one of the best bows, but this one matches Emmy's purple princess skirt.

Unfinished bow/headband.

This barrette is inspired by ice-cream sundaes. Neapolitan on the bottom with whipped cream on top!

Pictures of headbands will be posted tomorrow!

This is the little butterfly frame I painted last week. I was so excited to find these adorable unfinished magnet frames at Wal-Mart! I picked up two butterflies and two flowers. When I went back a few days later to grab a few more, there were only three frames left! So I picked up two more flowers.

This is one of the flowers. It's so much cuter in person.

This is just a fun little picture of the lamppost in my backyard. Oh, how I love that backyard.

Soccer barrettes

I whipped up these barrettes for my self proclaimed Soccer Princess and lone female teammate. (Two girls on the whole team!) Their team/uniform color is orange, and paired with black lettering, well, the uniform was just screaming "brighten me up!!"

The two hair pieces, side by side
