what i've been working on & kind of bleh.

My interest in hand sewing fabric flowers seems to be pretty cyclical. Lately I've not really had many ideas for metal, hammering and forging, so I've been busy on fabric flower headbands. Please excuse the way I look in the second picture. I promise I wasn't trying to pull the, "hey, look at me" sexy look, but it's just sort of the way it came out. Please don't hate me.

On to the bleh. I've had some things on my mind that I just can't seem to escape from, and I just found out that my Nana (great grandma) died yesterday. It's been a while since I've seen her, but it's sad nonetheless. Needless to say, I don't feel productive, inspired or the least bit creative, and it sucks. Big time. I might go to my grandma's sometime this weekend because she always makes me feel better. Sorry to unload, but it's on my mind. I promise it won't be a regular thing!

What have you guys been working on, and do you have any pictures? I'd love to see! I did a little thrifting today, and on my list was vintage cardigans, 70's tan suede mid-calf boots and old frames. I didn't find any of those things, but I still made out okay. Pictures tomorrow!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your great grandma. I lost my grandma last month and it was such a shock... you're in my thoughts & prayers!

    P.S.) Those headbands are seriously cute. Will you be selling them? I love how the blue flowers look against the dark hair.

  2. my heart and prayers go to you and your family at the sad news :(

    the best source of comfort is being surrounded by family, so i hope you do go to your grandma's.

    i don't blame you for feeling productive, but you should know that you are. These fabric flower headbands are beautiful! and you're the best model for your work. (why not be proud that you can do the "hey look at me" sexy look? lol ;)

    i can't wait to see your thrifting treasures!

  3. Sorry to hear about your grandmother. My thoughts are with you.
    The headpiece is beautiful and looks good on you. Well done!!!
    Have a good weekend!
    Take care and Happy Valentine's day!

  4. love the headbands snow!
    and i'm so sorry to hear about your great gma... praying for you and your family.
    i hope you have the most lovely valentines with chris...

    xo gazilliontrillioninfinitymillion!

  5. Thanks so much for your kind words and well wishes!

    Annie, I will be adding those (and several other colors) to my shop. It seems like the only things I want to make lately are fabric flowers and bullet necklaces!

    Micaela, I'm so shy, even in the pictures, so when I was editing and I saw the "sexy look" picture, I though, "Oh geez, Danielle!"

    Catherine, thank you so much. I hope you have a good weekend and happy Valentine's!

  6. Kassi, thanks friend! I knew this was coming because she hasn't been well for quite some time, but it doesn't make it any easier.

    Chris and I won't be doing anything special for Valentine's, but maybe I'll at least try to get a dinner out of him!

    xoxo gagillionmillioninfinity

  7. ps. you're my favorite model and i'm impressed with your 'i'm not trying to be sexy look' lucky chris! ;-)

  8. you should get dinner... and convince him to get you those toms! remember.... it's helping others... which he's into! ;-)

    love ya!!!

  9. Hahaha, I'm going to tell him you said he was lucky. I'll let you know what his response is!

    I'm just going to give those Tom's to myself for Valentine's day!

    Also, sometime when you're available, let me know because I think I might (possibly) have thought of a way I can video chat with two people, so I need to test it out!

  10. i'll be available next week since we're going out of town... but you should try hitting up b and l to test it out!
    i hope it works!
    i hope you get your toms!!!

  11. I love the second picture of you!!!! It's so cute... and those headbands are adorable. Sending you many many prayers for you and your family!! Much love xo

  12. oh, Danielle, I am so sorry to hear about your great grandma... I hope you get to visit your family!

    those flower headbands are so cute! I love them both, and the pictures are wonderful and you look great in them! I know what you mean about being shy when taking the pictures, that how I feel (trying not to think of my hooping video and being embarrassed, ha ha ha)...

    I hope you have a great weekend!
    ...little owl

  13. You little sex kitten! The flowers are gorgeous...I want one! Although, I could never pull it off the way you do...you're a natural (vixen, that is)! Check out my "photoetry" on my blog. I'm having sooo much fun! Too bad you're my only customer!

  14. Oh I love your bloggy! So sweet. :) Aww.
    Xoxo- Emily

    love you! feel better! i like the pics your so cute. i didnt get the "you are trying" YOU ARE miss thanG!!! hahaha

  16. Sorry to hear about the sad news :( everyone is always here for you! ♥

    Don't worry about not being so creative at the moment, everybody has lulls in creativity, because it just comes to you! :) But the headbands are really really beautiful, and you do look sexy in the second picture, you should be ashamed of it! :)

    Much love,


  17. i want that 2nd headband. so adorable. i have a hard time with headbands, i convince myself i am going to wear them & then i can never get them to look right in my baby thin hair. (my hair hasn't hit puberty yet, i swear) But i think I could wear these ones!
    sorry to hear about your great g-ma. love & prayers!

  18. I am so sorry to hear about your loss, this is so sad and my thoughts go out to you and your loved ones :(

    SO I love your headbands! So beautiful! And you are the cutest, you didn't mean to make "sexy face"!! I do that by accident all the time!! I think I am so self-conscious when getting my photo taken that I try to go profile and smile but it just comes out looking "come hither" haha!! But I promise you look adorable as can be ;)

  19. I'm very sad to hear about your grandma, my prayers go out to you and your family.

    The fabric headbands are absolutely gorgeous :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
