So Many Minnies!

Merry Monday!  As I said in my previous post there has been a lot of crafting going on at my house this month.  My Cricut and I have been very busy working on these:

I am participating in a swap.  The requirements were to cut 15 of your "favorite thing" at three to four inches, embellish it and make sure it had a couple of layers. (I am hoping that I did it correctly.  This is my first swap of this kind.)  I had a very difficult time deciding what to make.  Since I am the "Disney Girl" I decided to make the original Disney Girl, Miss Minnie Mouse.  I used the cartridge Mickey and Friends and cut her at four inches. I used Enamel Accents on her eyes.  I was very happy with how Miss Minnie turned out.  I can't wait to see what I get back in the swap. 

I am not the only one crafting away this month.  While my Cricut was chirping away my daughter was busy using a hot glue gun and ribbon.  This is what she made:

They are hair barrettes!  She saw a video on You Tube and away she went creating. This is not the first time she has taught herself to make something by watching a video.  I am so proud of her and the fact that she is able to do these things by just watching a video (no help from me).  I think that they turned out great. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope that you have a wonderful, magical, Disney kind of day!! Go out and do something that you enjoy!


  1. You s/b proud of your daughter! She did a great job with her barrettes!

  2. Your little Minnie's are very cute. I can't wait to see what you get in return.

    That's fabulous that your daughter is so crafty. Those bows are awesome! Does she just make them for herself or do you gift them or sell them?

  3. Those Minnie's are just too cute! Wish I were in the swap. Oh wait, I'd need time to send something back LOL. Maybe next time.

    Congrats and high five's on your daughter's creativity. I think learning young is a big step in doing it when your 'big girls' like us. ;-) Hugs and Creative Blessings! Kel
