Just a few things

I have been busy lately with a new little one that I am babysitting, so not too much crafting going on. Here are just a few things that have happened in the last little bit...

Just a few visiting teaching valentine's gifts. 

 A necklace to go with the skirt I made for Hali. 
Circle skirt that I found here. I am eventually going to make one for me. :)

 I can't remember where I saw the tutorial on this, but I show you how I did it. Pretty simple. I love hot glue and broken necklaces!

Here is just a little birthday card for my mom. The blue flower is Matboard from Heartstring Designs

And this I made for a friend that is also Milaya's piano teacher. I got this idea from Miss Mustard Seed. She has done so many things with sheet music that are so cute. I might have to do some more. My project turned out bigger than I expected, but fits nicely on her wall. Just don't ask her husbands opinion on it. 

I also found this bench/foot stool for $5.98 at a thrift store. It is currently in the process of being re-done. I have never reupholstered anything before, so this is a good(small) project to start with I think. I have taken the top off and have new foam that I got for 40% off at Jo-Ann's. I am just trying to decide if I want the base black with zebra print on top(which I already have the stuff for), or brown with different brown material on top. Thoughts? Anyone? ;) Decisions, decisions.
