my river of creativity

I’ve been a little MIA lately because I’ve been doing what I love …crafting!! Lately it’s been sewing.

I have always wanted specific things for my kiddos as they’ve grown (and for my home) and I can never find anything I truly want in store ..

for example ..when our oldest turned 3 he requested an ” It’s a Small World” birthday party. Where on EARTH would I get all the stuff? Centerpieces .. cake toppers.. goodie bags… INVITATIONS?! I checked Amazon.. nope ..checked Diddams and I looked in Party City (or is it Party America? I can never get it right since they’ve changed names), nothing. I knew for SURE I’d find everything I needed on Etsy.. wrong again 😥

I felt my only option was to just get creative and make it up! So I did .. I even made him a birthday shirt with shirt transfers, I had a HUGE help with my dessert table from an amazing friend and she amazingly did the cake

Fast forward to this past year, he wanted a “Pirates of the Caribbean” party.. and that’s exactly what he got!

My point is that I love to craft and be creative! And I’d be lying if I said that I don’t dream of selling my crafts!

Here are some things I’ve done…

This is a pouf that I filled with stuffed animals, the first one pictured is actually a custom order 😊

star wars pouf

I made a double sided boppy cover, I love The Little Mermaid!

Here is a pleated skirt for my little babe, don’t let your eyes deceive you this is a size 12 months

here I crafted the little flower wreath contraption and sewed together a mini crib sheet (apparently nobody sells them 🤦‍♀️)

This one might be my favorite craft so far… just because of the pure JOY it brought my son this past Halloween, DIY Ghostbusters outfit ..put the whole outfit together and made the proton pack from scratch, he LOVED it

SUPER simple ..and obvious Jack Skellington night light

Fall Disney Wreath

“Ready to POP” kettle corn favors for my baby shower

Christmas wreath (not Disney LOL)

Another simple, yet fun project I did for my son’s first birthday, each Mickey head has a picture and a number .. for example first Mickey head says 1 and there’s a picture when he was one month old

these photos are not here so i can “show off”, but rather a way to show case years of my hard work, a way I can remember the beautiful things I’ve created💖

if you’re still here till the very end of this post, thanks for listening! If you love to craft, do it! Make time for the things you love, whatever it may be!

and if you’re interested in one of my crafts, just let me know!
