My Creative Space - Ivory And Pearl Hair Clips

I've been working on some ivory flower hair clips lately.
The perfect colour for bridal hair flowers.

The petals are a mix of ivory and the palest yellow-gold organzas and I love how they look with the pearls in the centres.

They're actually a tone or two yellower that the photos, like pastel gold, and they are just over 3.5 inches across.

I've got more of these petals ready to make into flowers, so I think I'll play around with the centres and see what happens. 

It's time to try some rhinestones and some stamen.

Lilac Fairytale Flower Hair Clip

This is my latest listing: large organza flowers in a sweet, romantic,  lilac.

To me, their shape resembles a cabbage rose and they are my latest addiction.
I've made them in all sorts of colours and sizes.

I'd love to see these flowers on a bride, bridesmaid or even a diminutive flowergirl.

Handmade Hostess - Party Ideas for Unforgettable Hosting

I've had all sorts wonderful things coming through the mail lately that I haven't had the chance to share with you yet.

One of my favourite is Handmade Hostess by Kelly Lee-Creel and Rebecca Soder.

I was lucky enough to win this over at Sew, Mama, Sew blog, and I love it!

It's full of all sorts of wonderful projects to sew and make -37 in total - and it's beautifully photographed and presented.

I loved that it was divided into four sections according to the four seasons with projects following the sequence of the seasons as we come across them.

Another pleasant surprise was that this book takes you beyond just imaginative decorations and creative party themes as it focuses on the actual hosting of a successful gathering with tips and checklists that will help you through the -much less fun- aspects of planning organizing and getting it all right as stress free as possible.

An extra bonus was the 12 dessert recipes of mouthwatering cookies and cupcakes and pies that would be the perfect addition to any party or gathering.

Overall, I loved this book and I'd recommend it without question. It's very well put together and it's definately inspirational.

Thank you Kelly for the inscription!
It makes the book extra special.
