Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.  

It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business.

I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room.

There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go. 


This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag)

I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project!


This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake!

I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nicely, don't you?

Now…to find little tykes to put these on!  My cats are truly unwilling volunteers!

these sweaters are just super cute. What a great way to pass your time away in a motel room. I can not longer crochet or knit, seeing your projects make me really miss it.

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

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
