I never call a project done without using at least a tiny bit of bling from The Buckle Boutique, sometimes a little is all you need! It really goes a long way and brings just the right amount of sparkle to your project! Go check out The Buckle Boutique for all your blingy craft needs! I promise you, you will be in instant LOVE! You can cut it on your machine or with scissors or dye cutter, its seriously amazing. I live by those self adhesive bling sheets.

It’s A Horse… OF COURSE!

I would love for you to meet my daughter Azalea’s NEW best friend.. Heesia, she named her, shes two, and came up with this name on her own. Even if I forget the horses name, she will remind me. Which I think is ADORABLE!

I found this cute pattern for a horse, which you can find HERE

I taught myself to crochet after having spinal fusion surgery back in February of this year, so I really have only been crocheting for 7 months, but I decided to try my first stuffed animal and this was the outcome! I am pretty pleased with it, and the best part is my girls are IN LOVE with her! Now they all want like every animal known to man kind crocheted by mom!

You can’t really tell from the picture but she is about 17 inches from head to tail end and so shes a pretty decent size but still a good size for taking every where, which is the case now, she goes all over with us!

Now to get into details… I used my GO-TO, FAVORITE yarn… RED HEART YARNS! I love their yarn cause its super soft and not super expensive and their colors are just amazing… they have it all! I rarely buy anything but Red Heart! I decided to add some color to the mane and tail “hairs” to give a more girly punky look to suit our taste but this could so easily be done in any color and look great! On the saddle I used a lil embellishment from The Buckle Boutique that I have been hanging onto for the perfect project and boy.. was this IT! It really added the perfect last lil touch! I also used a bling slide from The Buckle Boutique which is just so elegant and beautiful!! I used safety eyes I purchased from Hobby Lobby for 99 cents for a two pair pack, but just to be REALLY sure the eyes weren’t going to pull out I used a lil BEACON ADHESIVE GEM TACK GLUE! I love their glues, they have it ALL! From scrapbook glue to fabric glue to decoupage! I have been seriously impressed with their glues integrity and quality thru many of my projects!

Don’t forget to check out The Buckle Boutique BLOG to never miss a project from all the design team members! They have big hearts and even bigger projects and will rock  your socks off! Also FOLLOW ME! Right on this blog! Check out The Buckle Boutique on FACEBOOK too!

I hope you enjoyed this project half as much as we did! We loved sharing it with you! Here’s some more pics to ohhhh and ahhh over 😉

Say HELLO to a Pretty Kitty Headwrap Earwarmer! Don’t forget the BLING!

So first of all I want to say HELLO to all my readers! I have not been on here in two whole months! In December I had a pretty major spine surgery and so I have just been recovering and taking it easy. It has been very hard but I am slowly but surely getting back into crafting.

While I was recovering in a hospital bed in my living room (since my craft room is 14 steps down to the basement, and oh yes I am having withdraws from my beautiful pink craft space) I decided to teach myself to crochet! Thank you internet! LOL! For real guys, if you have always wanted to learn to crochet… what are you waiting for?! It is awesome! I’m officially hooked (pun intended LOL)! The internet is AMAZING! SO if you do not know how to crochet, open a new tab, go to youtube, get some yarn and a medium hook ( I suggest an I or H for learning on) and LOOK UP how to crochet for beginners, then come back to this page, and go get the pattern for this amazing crochet piece and make it, then come back to me and show me what you came up with!
tbb1

My paper crafting will have to learn to share me with crochet for sure.. its amazing! So since January 9th, I have made SO many things, hats, headband, ear warmers, leg warmers, purses, jewelry, the list goes on and on! Okay now I’m rambling and maybe even bragging a little! LOL

SO you either know how to crochet or you just learned via my advice above and youtube.. your welcome btw 🙂 and now you HAVE to go get this pattern! GO GO GO! Its adorable and its FREE! I would like to give credit to the designer, she is amazing and has so many crochet patterns on her blog, they are free! You can find the pattern on her blog right HERE <—- CLICK ME!!!!!

SO that was easy right?! I love it! I mean this came together SO fast and all the kids at my daughters schools are all over my kids about how adorable it is! I have parents calling me and people stopping me in the store to ask where I got it! Imagine how proud I am when I get to say I MADE THIS! And spread the word about the blog I found it on! I’m a fan, and I really hope the owner of this blog gets to see this and hear me go on and on and ON about how much I love her stuff, cause I really do! Go visit her! Tell her I sent you!

As you all know, I LOVE BLING! I mean I gotta have it, cant live with out it! So you can see that on the bow I added an adorable bling slide From The Buckle Boutique in the center of the bow, which seriously took me like 2 seconds and brings it to a whole new level of BAM BABY! LOOK AT THIS HEADWRAP! IM KEEPIN MY EARS WARM IN STYLE!

And did I mention these little bling slides are SO not expensive on The Buckle Boutique Site! CLICK HERE and go buy your now and take a look around! I work with their SELF ADHESIVE RESIN SHEETS all the time, this was my first time working with the slides and I’m IN LOVE!

I want a CASE of them! I NEED THEM! I have so many other things I used them on since I started crocheting just 6 weeks ago, so definatly stay tuned to my blog and The Buckle Boutique Blog to see what I came up with and to see how to BLING UP YOUR LIFE! PUT A LIL SPARKLE IN YOUR LIFE! There’s no such thing as too much bling!
