Wow! It's hard to believe Fall is almost here. The kids have been back in school for several weeks, the air is turning cool and the urge to bake pumpkin-y treats is undeniable. Fall is my favorite season!! What's yours?

"Make a Word " using magnet letters is very educational. I came up with this fun idea for my 5 yr. old daughter using the star, Chip Art shapes and the peacock, ornamental letter stamps. She loves learning and I'm always looking for fun, innovative ways to keep her interested.

Note to self: Make the letter "O".
Start out with stars in various sizes.

Deboss the letters into the stars.

Paint the shapes with acrylic paint.

Once dry. Color the letters in with a fine tip, Sharpie.
Glue a small magnet to the back of each star.
Now they are ready to play "make a word".

Hi! Lori here. This month we were challenged at gcd Studios to create some type or jewelry. We could make pins, necklaces, bracelets, hair accessories etc. I chose to make hair accessories. As a mom of three girls. I know you can never seem to have enough of them.

Today I have a cute little tin to share with you. I had the tin in my stash but you may be able to purchase something similar from Papertrey Ink or Stampin' UP. Your local craft store may even carry them.
This would make a perfect gift for a little girl's birthday or special occasion.

All the supplies are from the Homespun Chic collection minus the rub-on and twill ribbon.

To make these I simply took these pre-made, Homespun Chic felt embellishments (scroll down, photo is on the bottom right) and hot glued hair clips to the back of them. There are six in each pack so you get a lot of variety.
