More embroidery & felt barrettes

Holiday gift time- so I am doing more embroidery. With the strawberry onesie and butterfly shirt I tried my hand at a matching barrette made out of felt. They turned out okay, but I want to work on them a little more- maybe make some for D's stocking this year.

Beaded Earrings and Christmas Trees

As a general rule, I try to avoid my local bead store because it is incredible, and I always want to spend every cent I have. But I found myself shopping there this week for Christmas presents and couldn't resist picking up some new findings. I put together some sparkly earrings that I would wear to a fun Christmas party if I went to things like that. All of these are made with pressed glass or Czech glass except for the red ones. Those are made with a faceted coral that I've had for awhile that I just love!

After pulling out all my beading supplies it put my in the beading mood. I think I will make another beaded tree like these that I made a couple of years ago.
