Sewing Sewing Sewing

I love a woman who enjoys being a mother. You can just tell this blogger LOVES her life.

A Little Bit Funky is a happy mama who sews and sews some more. She sews so much, she even has an Etsy shop……..I also love it when Mom’s can pad the families bottom line without leaving the home to work. I personally think the US should adopt what a couple other countries do……allow mom’s to stay home for at least a year and up to 5…..and get compensated. Think of what it would save down the road.

OK, stepping off my soap box and back into the beautiful world of creative goodness…….

Crystal has a segment called the 20 minute crafter……imagewhere she has projects that are supposed to be quick……….like these drapes……she added the yellow panel….so dang cute. But I hate to burst your bubble Crystal….but that’s gonna take me a few more minutes than 20….maybe 14,000 minutes. Come to think of it…….you better just sew them for me.image Or this cute tee she embellished. This actually looked simple…….for me…..if I could sew.image Let’s talk about her Etsy shop again….where she sells the cutest, most original little softies….I think she calls them Hoho’s. What a great gift.image More Hoho’s………Mmmmm hoho’s….I suddenly have a craving for those hostess hoho’s….imageThese are pretty cool too…….colorful, original……and hip.imageThere is just no end to the cuteness if you can sew. Adorable dish towels. Love the ric rac……….I also love the ric rac trim decorating her blog.image

She makes many different kinds of flowers……this was on a photo bag….image This girl has an eye for color…….she’s VERY good at putting stuff together.image Honestly…….is this not one of the best ideas…….and one of the cutest ideas for kids? Placing the state shape on a tee. Love it.image

And if you’re not into sewing….she has a few other creative projects to inspire you on this Monday. You can do anything with chalk board paint.image Go surprise her……she’s going to pee her pants when she finds out that she’s is today’s feature. She is so cute…..she has my button on her side bar with “someday” above it. Melts my heart. She is also a regular contributor to Get Your Craft On. I notice people…..I do. Speaking of which……is tomorrow. Come show off your latest creation. If you can’t wait, you can list it on Skip To My Lou’s Made by You Monday’s.image

Thank you so much for introducing Crystal and her cute work! Very inspiring. I am personally having a bit of a sewing crisis, having just been given a beautiful machine and not knowing what to do with it, being afraid I will break it etc. Any advice and tips willingly received http://aspecialjourneyofmyown.blogspot.com/2010/05/sew-girl-sew.html

Thank you!
Beth

I have the benefit of being Crystal's SIL. Despite my best intentions, there is just not a crafty bone in my body but her touch has made my house extra special. Thanks for taking the time to notice her skill and more importantly her :) She's a-w-e-s-o-m-e and i'm proud to call her family - the CJC

YAY! Little Bit Funky is one of my favorite blogs, I'm so glad you featured Crystal so more people can find her. I agree - her eye for color is amazing, and her site is just so cheerful. Happy Ho Ho monsters make me want to have another baby so I have an excuse to buy one...
