I Little Birdie Told Me

Pintrest is a HUGE time sink. But a fun one. I have made all sorts of craft projects from there. 
And I've made a lot of gifts from there also. I usually pay close attention to what my friends are pinning. And if it's something that I know I can do, I'll do it. :)

These little birdies were super easy and fun to make. 
Just felt and some yarn.

Took about a day, from sun up to sun down (hey, I like to take breaks).


I have a rather large collection of embroidery floss and I managed to match all the felt I used.

The Wonderful World of Floss!

I love colors! Even though I'm a goth at heart, I do love me some pretty rainbows. Hey, I can't be gloomy 100% of the time. Well, maybe 80% of the time.  :) er, I mean, :(

Speaking of colorful things, I love to sit and just look at my rainbow of embroidery floss. Yeah, yeah, I know I'm a winner.
So here comes my question, How do you store your floss?

I have all of my cross stitch floss in a plastic bag and ring system.

And I have all my embroidery floss on bobbins.

I'm not entirely sure why I keep them seperate. 

But I think it might be the fact that winding the thread is a pain in the ass.

And I have an unwanted helper. But I keep her cause she's cute :)

I have more to talk about regrading floss but I feel that that needs it's own post.

Lemon Lime Citrusy Goodness!

 I find it funny that while I'm blogging about one project, I working a different one.

I saw a cute tutorial on citrus coasters on The Purl Bee
I just had to make them.

They were super easy and made out of felt.
I made these a few months ago. But I had to wait to post them because they were a Christmas gift. She liked them.

Sketchbook Pocket

 I like to draw out a lot of my projects and I normal staple other paper involved to the page. That can get a bit annoying, with the pieces for paper flopping about.
So I thought that a piece of scrapbook paper. It's nice and thick.

I used scalloped scissors to give it a nice and pretty edge.

 I folded the edges and glued it right on the back of the back flap of my sketchbook.
Boy let me tell ya, I hate waiting for glue to dry.

It holds papers nice and snug now. It does what I want it to. :)
