My first stab at hoop art

I do not know how "people" have time to craft.

My daughter comes up off the floor from crawling and her clothes are black because I never mop. Since I don't make time to mop then how is it justifiable to make time to craft?

Uh I don't know! But crafting allows me to relax and satiate those creative urges. I may not craft as much as some of the uber popular blog-gals, but I'll give ya some crafty love every now and then. Mk?

This week, hoop art! Yay. My first one. Ain't she a beaut?
I made this last night and I hate to shoot when there's no natural lighting, so I didn't photograph the process. You can find instructions here. It's so easy. If you know how to cut, fold, and glue, you're golden. I showed this to my neighbor and she couldn't believe the flowers were all hot glue and no stitching.

The hoop {vintage} cost $1.00 (love that it's colored!). Vintage fabric $.50. Felt $.75. I had the buttons. It's girly, blingy, bright and surfer Barbie-ish.
While we're on the topic of bling, check out my new addition:
Look, Ma! Are you still coming for a visit soon?

Kristin said...

thanks for the inspiration to make a little something. i feel doing anything "crafty" is usually last on my list... happy weekend!

Are you kidding? You can ALWAYS justify doing something that makes you feel GREAT over doing something that doesn't (so long as it isn't illegal, or doesn't hurt anyone else.... : ) )

Can't wait to see the nose ring in person....I'm sure you look great! Did it hurt?

Oh you did it. Love it and you have inspired me to create some hoop art for the basement. I think the nose ring will also make you faster when you run.

Hoop art is sooo late 80's! I have to admit I kinda like that it is making a comeback but in a newer more updated way. Your hoop came out adorable.

And bravo to you for being brave enough to get a nose piercing. It looks great on you.
