Cozy Style


This morning, I have been playing around with Photoshop on a photo of a knitted headband I made. I'm trying to learn a little more about using and making PNG files, texturing, etc.  I'd like to make a digital scrapbook and have it printed, but most of the stuff I've made so far has seemed flat and unexciting.


I made this headband for a friend for her birthday....and the centerpiece is changeable (it is attached with a button!)  I'm going to make another embellishment that is more earthy.  She's an earthy gal and this will keep her ears warm whilst toiling in her food garden this early spring.

Lately I've been addicted to knitting (last two weeks I made a bunch of cowls) while watching the entire 4 seasons of Felicity on Netflix. I guess I was reliving college, but not reliving the drama of that age.  Have you seen them?  Felicity had quite the love drama going on.


I have to say, tho, that over the course of those seasons I DID develop quite the crush on Noel and Ben too.  But I seriously doubt there are ANY fellas out there like that. I haven't seen one yet at those ages willing to sit and "TALK" about any problems...or even address them, and certainly not raise the discussion.  My hubby is an awesome, loving man, but well, never mind...let's just say that these guys were like beautiful man-versions of an emotionally balanced woman!  Oh, and I don't think I know any emotionally balanced women either (not at ages 18-26 at least!)


I have a style question (serious), what sort of embellishment would be stylish on a knitted headband? I'm curious, because I don't think I have a good sense of style for things like this (and I don't wear headbands because of my shrunken head and lack of thick luscious hair.) 




I'm thinking about making a bunch for gifts and charity fund raising....and possibly for next holiday.

Is this more suited for a child? What sort of embelly would an adult wear?  I'm going to experiment some more...on knitting stylish headbands AND Photoshop.

I think you nailed it your pix this time. I can almost feel the texture of the headband. Yu might experiment with flowers made of different fabrics for emblishments. Flowers seem to be very trendy for head gear these days.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered. People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm. Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around. You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult. A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors. And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people. What's Your Rising Sign? Well, okay, I don't know about stable. And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm". But the rest, yeah.

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th
