Dry Spell

So, I ran into a girlfriend of mine at Savers this morning (Hi Jamee:) And she said to me "Girl you need to get a new post up!" And I confessed to her that the truth is, is that I have been going through a creative dry spell.  I have got NOTHING!  And I have been feeling really overwelmed and depressed about it!  It is not like me to not want to be creating constantly! 
She then went on to tell me that her and her crafting group made the flowers I posted about a while ago, and they loved them.  I then mentioned to her I have been making necklaces with them, and she said that I should do a post on them, so here I go!  (Thanks Jamee for giving me the push I needed to get back to blogging!:)

Can you tell by the above picture that I love these flowers?:)  I put them on EVERYTHING!  My clothes, my hair, my girls hair, my shoes, my bags etc!!

I decided to try to make one of those amazing bib necklaces that are all the rage right now, and it is pretty darn easy!  I didn't sew a stitch! I attached clips to the back of the flowers, and used a bowl as a template to cut out some felt

I then used hot glue to attach ribbon to the bib, then just clipped the flowers on.  This way I can change out the flowers to create other necklaces.  The possibilities, and color choices are endless!

Here is how it looks on, soooo simple! 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season!  I know it is so hard not to get caught up in the hussle and bustle, the parties, and presents.  I hope we can all remember what we are truly celebrating ~ the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ!!!  I am so thankful to know that through him I can be forgiven for all my faults and failures!!
