Semi Handmade

Need a last minute gift and want to personalize it a bit?

Hot glue a few rosettes to a store bought cosmetic bag, clutch, cloth wine bottle gift bag or even a plain stocking…again, I learned how to roll rosettes from this tutorial and found it very easy.

I recently picked up a remnant of thin, sheer red fabric at Joann’s that I think makes better rosettes that the thicker fabrics…

These little corduroy mary janes caught my eye at Tilly’s and I am just bummed they didn’t have them in woman’s sizes! They were on clearance for $10…my mom picked up a pair for Elliott and I stuck on a couple small rosettes at the toes.

I found a 3-piece set of the cheetah print cosmetic bags {small, medium and large} at Ross for $9.99, embellished them and gave them as Christmas gifts to my mother-in-law, Elliott’s dance teacher and this one is a surprise!


I’m the Sandra Lee of the crafting world ~ ha!

Only about TWO more days…do you still have things to check off your lists or will you be spending the next couple days chillaxin’?

I need to grocery shop for 8 people for about 7 or 8 meals and pick up a couple last minute things, but after the looks of Target this afternoon, I am afraid…very afraid.

Wish me luck!

Hoping you get all your errands done and your out-of-town guests arrive safely.
