Quick and easy fleece Easter bunny

If you are limited on time, you will love this little Easter craft. Following this tutorial from Gluesticks, I whipped up this little bunny in just a few minutes. I improvised to use what I had on hand. Instead of filling my bunny with beans, I used some quilt batting.

I glued on some googly eyes and a button nose. I think he needs a mouth and a tail, but I skipped those features. My bunny is also not the same dimensions because it ended up being a little shorter after I squared up my fleece scrap.  I have a few more sewn up ready to fill and embellish, so I'm going to try a few things different. I may send one to my 2 year old niece and the eyes and button nose would not be very safe for her. However, this little crazy-eyed guy will be just fine on display at my house.

Thanks for stopping by.

WIWW- gingham and floral

Shirt- TJMaxx skirt- Old Navy shoes- Payless necklace- Our World Boutique worn March 23, 2014 We had such a nice day Sunday I couldn't help but to bust out the florals in celebration of spring. I paired this skirt with a gingham shirt. I received lots of compliments on this outfit at church. It was a little suprising who they came from too. I wish I had a better location for photos because the lighting here is not doing this justice. Linking up with WIWW.

DIY Monogram Plate

Are you in love with the monogram trend? Do you love it on your clothes and accessories or just in home decor? I'm more drawn to home decor. I decided that I wanted a monogrammed plate to add to our home decor and knew I could do this quickly and easily with my Silhouette and some vinyl. (Thank goodness it's quick and easy, I haven't had time for much else craft wise lately). I picked up an oval shaped platter from the thrift store. You can see it in it's "before" state below.


With just a little cleaning and some vinyl decals, I now have a fabulous decor piece.


I first measured length and width of the area I would be working in so I'd know how big to size my overall design in Silhouette.

Sorry, I don't have screen shots but here's the basic workflow.

I chose some swirls out of "Swirls set of 7". I ungrouped them so I had just the one I wanted and then copied it and reversed the copy. I took the ellipse tool and drew two circles, one a …

WIWW-Plaid, stripes, utility jacket

Jacket/scarf- JCPenney shirt- Forever 21 jeans- Levis mid rise skinny boots- Target Worn March 8, 2014 I know you saw very similar plaid and stripes not too long ago. This time I added the utility jacket. It was cold enough for the extra layer. But soon, and very soon, I'll be peeling back the layers....ah spring! And then maybe there will be some new outfits instead of repeats on the same old formulas. Linking up to WIWW.

Jacksonville Zoo August 2013 I don't even remember taking this shot, but I thought it was just too interesting not to share. This creature looks like he's playing peek-a-boo and sticking his tongue out at me. I think I know what he is but I could be wrong so I won't say, but if you can identify him, please let me know.

WIWW- Denim jacket

Jacket- Old Navy shirt- Belk's skirt- (old) shoes- Target wing necklace- JCPenney I wore this a couple of weeks ago. I finally gave in and purchased a denim jacket with a gift card because I keep pinning looks with denim jackets. I'm just not sure how much wear I'll get out of it since I can't wear it to work.
