last-minute crafting.




elle attended the birthday festivities of a school chum yesterday evening. so naturally, yesterday morning (and, um, possibly late afternoon) found me stitching up a smallish pouch and cutting wool felt blossoms for hair clips.





the lucite chrysanthemums are from snapcrafty on etsy.





the pouch is a based on anna's tutorial over at noodleheads. [if you have not yet had the pleasure of visiting anna's space, it is chock-full of clearly written instructions for simple, gorgeous projects.]





i adore my boys and their star-wars-loving ways, but also? i love being the mother of a girl.

My goal is to become the mother of a girl. I told my husband, "The next one ya give me is going to be a girl". ha.
AND I have to go to a cupcake birthday party this afternoon!! That would have been perfect! PERFECT!
AHHHHHHHhhhhhh. I'm dying because now anything I get the birthday girl will pale in comparison to your uber cute stuff.

I am trying not to drool over the cuteness. I am failing.

Can Elle come to my girls' birthday parties? =D

I'm so glad to know that you too sometimes do things at the last minute. It's hard to consider a handmade gift "last minute" but since you said it and not me, I'll take it for what it's worth.
Perfect little presents. As always :)
