Knit hat with rosette

For some reason I had this knit hat that was too small for me so I obviously had never worn it.  I think I got it in NYC last year.  I made this gorgeous rosette to spruce it up a bit.  Now need to find someone who can wear it.  Think it would look great on a little girl.  I actually made this a while ago but never posted it.

"Simplify" vinyl sign

Ironically this was anything but simple.  Guess that's why I need a sign that says "simplify" to help me keep things simple.  The word ended up being too long to fit onto the board so I placed the "P" on top of the "M" and overlapped the "f" and "y".  Ended up turning out really cute but took a bit of maneuvering to make it happen.  Also I had already put a hanger on the back and of course put the lettering on upside down so I had to take off the hanger and reattach it to the other side.  Ugh!  I have another board {Note: they are actually drawer fronts found in the "as is" section of IKEA.  Love that place} this same size but am indecisive about what word to put on it.  Any suggestions?

Brown Camo Hat

This is the original yarn I was looking for instead of the green camo hat I made recently.  Since I ended up finding this yarn I decided to make a hat from it.  I think my nephew will like this much better than the green.  My nephews are spoiled.  They don't know how good they have it.  J/K!  They are great boys and I love making things for them and they appreciate all the unique gifts I give them.

Magnet Boards

These are the brain child of my friend's but I did some of the work on them.  We made some for Christmas presents and gave them away and are going to make more at next week's Relief Society Meeting.  I did the vinyl for the FHE chart today.  Going to give it to my cousin for her upcoming birthday.  (The kids' tags are turned over for privacy)  They are a great gift and are pretty easy to make.
My friend has them for sale in her etsy shop.

Drinking Glasses

We got these awesome insulated drinking cups for Christmas and since I'm obsessed with lime green lately I snagged that one for myself.  Just to make things clear I labeled them with vinyl today just so it's clear whose cup belongs to who.  Since I'll be handwashing these cups I think the vinyl will stick.  We'll see...

LOVE Banner

Seems like banners have been the thing for quite a while now and even though I've crocheted a few I hadn't made any out of paper till the other day.  Since I had tons of this black ribbon I chose this burg/black paper that looks great with it.  I'm thinking about making another one that says "Be Mine".  If you need a banner for anything let me know and I'll be happy to make one for you.

Custom Order - Camo Hats

Last Christmas I'd promised my nephews to crochet hats for them.  Of course I completely forgot about it until I was visiting them this Christmas and they reminded me.  So I crocheted up a couple of hats for them this week.  Now I just have to get them to them.  They wanted camouflage so I hope these will do.

Activity Days - I Know the Scriptures are True

We made these plaques at Activity Days lastnight for the girls to hang in their rooms to remind them of this year's Primary theme.  I fashioned the artwork after the popular "Keep Calm Carry On" posters and printed them up 4x6.  The girls had a lot of fun making these and will hopefully enjoy them in their rooms.

Custom Order - Vinyl "Family Faith Friends Fun" Sign

Did this custom order today and I just love how it turned out.  So cute!  Decided to add flowers to the corners to take up some extra space and I think it looks great.  A 5 x 7 picture an fit in the center rectangle.  It's going to look great on my friend's wall.

Custom Order - Cream Hat

A couple of my friends ordered this hat for their mother who had previously owned a similar hat but had lost it on a recent vacation.  They are pretty sure their mom will be thrilled to have a replacement since she really loved that hat.
