My Creative Space - yo yo, yo yo, yo yo!

This week I've become addicted to making yo yos. I discovered them last week and now I just want to make more and more!

Here they are hanging out together before Mister 3 year old took them to play with them!

And here is a finished one with a covered button in the middle

And here's some cut out and ready to be worked on tonight when my sister comes over for craft night!

Have a fun, creative day! For more creative spaces, go to Kirsty's blog..... here!

I've also been making up some bunting for my stall. I'm making up 4 sets and have finished 2 so far

Cute yo yo hair clips

I went to the Craft and Quilting show earlier this week and saw a kit and pattern to make up yo yos. I love the look of them but thought I would google how to do it instead. What did people do before google???

They are so simple! And so beautiful! I've made up 2 so far and sewed them to hair clips. I'm going to add them to my stall at my market next month. I'm going to get some bigger buttons to try too. Loving the look :)

A few finished hair bands

I've been doing lots of work on my hair accessories for my up coming market stall and have now finished a good selection of hair bands. I've started on my hair clips now too.

Here's a few pics of the finished hair bands. I've put them on some card with my logo and sealed them in little plastic slips to make them look professional. I must say, I'm really happy with the result!!

These boys make my heart sing

My hubby has been off work this week and it's been lovely having him around during the day. We've just been hanging out together, but the boys have been loving it. They've both been so happy this week, and they are such sweet little boys.

They make my heart sing :) (and these photos make me realise just how big they are both getting, especially my 3 year old, Jack)

My Creative Space - getting ready for market

I've been a busy little beaver (wonder how busy beavers actually are???) getting ready for my first market stall ever. I'm getting really excited!! My lovely friend has been trying to convince me for a while that I should just go. for. it. but I didn't know what I was going to make. What if I failed? etc.

Well, time to put on my big girl undies and just DO IT! The market is at a local preschool in the evening, so is a perfect little market to try out. It's in July so I've been busily making stuff - hair accessories & bunting so far.

Here's some pics of some of the hair stuff. What do you think?

For more creative spaces, pop over to Kirsty's blog here. That's what I'm going to do!

Have a great creative day :D
