Upcycled wedding favors

I'm getting married in 2 days (eek!), and made my own wedding favors earlier this week.

I got a bunch of mini-blind sample strips, and wrote our names and wedding date on them. Then I glued vintage shank buttons into the holes, and voilĂ  ~ bookmarks!


I also made keyrings out of camouflage duct tape. People can choose whichever one they prefer. I wonder which will be more popular?

Plarn on!

Hello, y'all!

So, I've decided that I need to stop making excuses for not blogging. I mean really, it's not terribly difficult - and is only time-consuming if I make it that way. I hope y'all are ready to start seeing more of me!

I wanted to share one of my plarn creations with you today. Plarn stands for PLastic yARN - plastic shopping bags that I turn into yarn so I can crochet them! I make all sorts of things out of plarn, but one of the cutest has to be these plarn flower ponytail holders. 



It's like a little eco-friendly garden!

I'd love to hear what you think of them.


Happy upcycling!
