Tulip Festival

Over this past weekend I attended the Tulip Festival in Pella, IA. Here are some photos I snapped of the beautiful tulips in full bloom!

Paula's Pouch

Another birthday present, but this time I was commissioned to make it! My cousin needed a special gift for her Mom's birthday and, after I showed her this design from Pink Penguin's blog, she knew it was exactly what she wanted for her Mom.

I lined it with lace-printed clear vinyl that I found in the remnant pile at the fabric store! Everything else was made with free samples found in the back of an interior design store.

Leah's Birthday Surprise

Here is a tote I made for a sweet little girl named Leah. She is my boyfriend's niece and full of life. When designing this, I kept in mind her liveliness and joy.
