Terrific Thrifty Thursday #41 and #42

I skipped Terrific Thrifty Thursday last week, so I will feature 4 projects this week!

I was wondering how you made those big felt flowers and then I found a tutorial from The Crafting Chicks for a huge flower pillow! Aren't these big flowers amazing?

If you have a little extra patience, then you should consider making these Glittered Zigzag Earrings from Mintage Home.

How cute is this teacup pincushion from The Spotted Fox (guest posting on Punk Projects) ?

And what two bffs wouldn't like these puzzle piece necklaces from Speckless?

Do you have a project to share for a Terrific Thrifty Thursday? Then you can submit it to: mypassionsforfashions (at) yahoo (dot) ca I would love to hear from you! Please grab one of my buttons for your blog if you were featured!

Please come back tomorrow for a look at my yellow and black nail design! :)

Oooh, Pretty!

Here are some pretty things!

I do not like strapless, but I love the colour and the rest of the dress! Notice the right side of the dress. It's a nice touch! I would wear the bottom half as a skirt.

I think this skirt would look good with a black cardigan and red or white tank top or shirt. Perfect for Spring or Easter!

The black cardigan:

I think a black cardigan would be a nice addition to my closet. :) I like the one above!

Hmmmm. I guess I'm thinking Spring. That's a good thing! I love the clusters of flowers!

What do you think is good spring wear?

5 Fave Monday (#11)

Here is the 11th edition of 5 Fave Monday. Here are some things I like right now...

1. These nails:
I'm pretty sure these are fake nails, but aren't they cool?

2. These houndstooth thing:
(source) I love the pop of blue with the big houndstooth print.
I love the buttons, but I think this dress should be a bit longer.


Houndstooth is so classy.

3. This skirt:
It's from Emilie Rebekah Designs. You can see details HERE. I love t-shirt skirts!

4. This movie:

Okay, I haven't actually seen it yet, but I'm pretty sure it's awesome. It sounds great! What are your opinions?

Terrific Thrifty Thursday #40

I would like to know how I have been doing this for 40 weeks??? Time has flown by SO quickly! I wonder if us bloggers will be blogging years and years from now! That would be very cool for me to see what I made when I was 12 and 13 when I'm older. :o) (sorry Terrific Thrifty Thursday is a little late!)

The first project is from Craftaholics Anonymous. She made t-shirt pom poms! Aren't they fun? They make me want to party. ;)

I think I might have to make these earrings from Creative Itch.

Monkey See, Monkey Do! has a cute tote bag tutorial!

And that wraps up another Terrific Thrifty Thursday!
