Knitted headband

Hey all,

I just wanted to show you all my knitted headband I made. It was the first one I have ever made. I originally was going to be making a scarf for my American Girl doll but it turned out to be made for me instead.

I think it is cute and it is warm! I love it.

Cover your Boring Note Books!

So as I have mentioned before I am going back to school. I have a bunch of old notebooks from when I went to college the first time. They are boring, colorful but just plain old notebooks. I wanted something more and didn't want to spend anymore money. (trying to use things I already have on hand/can get for free school is expensive enough as it is by itself. I even told my BF that he could get me cute/funky/fun school supplies for Xmas, haha.) So I took a look at my fabric stash (wish I think I have SO much of and the BF tells me I do nothing with so "in yo face" I am using some :).

To start I cut out a template to cute out the fabric pieces.
Then I made my own D.I.Y. Mod Podge, which is just old Elmer's glue mixed with water (again something I had  on hand instead of spending$$$
Next I cut out my fabrics

Following that I used the qlue, a sponge brush and attached the fabric to the note books

I still need to trim the edged of the fabric off on these three
Right now I am letting these try and have weight on them to keep them flat as it does dry
Here is how the one I made yesterday looks

I still want to do more to these so there will be an updated post on these.
** UPDATED 12/14/12 i covered the spirals.

Also from this post I did a little bit more to my planner, I added rub ons
 Inspirations quotes.

DIY planner in progress

Hello all,
I recently decided to go back to college to get my associated degree in business administration, which is my current field. I am going to be making myself more valuable. I have gotten lots of support from all my friends, family and coworkers. I decided that for my first semester back I could use a planner. I didn't want to just go buy an ordinary one, I wanted a "fun" one. So I am making my own. First I googles free printable planner pages and came across this website. I printed out all the pages I wanted and started the old creative juices flowing. I decided to make it like this...

 First I decided on scrapbook paper that had print/color on both sides.

Then I cut everything out to fit the way I wanted it too.

Then I sewed them with my sewing machine.

This is how it has turned out so far.

I still plan on embellishing the pages with pictures and stickers I will follow up with the finished project, but I love how this is going so far.

I learned how to knit

 So this weekend I decided to teach myself how to knit! I am thoroughly enjoying this. I knew how to crochet but I really enjoy knitting much, much more.

Oh by the way the knitting needles and the (3) things of yarn were all thrifted so i spend about 3 bucks on this project!

This was the first night!

This is my progress this is going to be a lap blanket.

I also recently started using Instagram, so far i kinda like this, or well the frames I can put on pictures atleaset.
