DIY, such painful fun…


A bit like getting a tattoo.. except less permanent.

Well, not always permanent πŸ˜‰

I actually love making gifts. It is my thing.

Makes me feel challenged and adds a level of involvement into the likes/loves/interests of the person I am making a gift for.

It took me all of a nanosecond to think of this gift idea for Lee, she is one of my dearest and sweetest friends with a laugh as big as her heart.

She calls it as she sees it and makes the best of every situation. Heart of Gold and a Darling for Days.


So a few days ago, I pulled out the sewing machine, dusted off the cobwebs and got to work with a mission in my mind and a smile on my face.

It was all good till the moment came that I had to use the hot glue gun!!!


If I had a swear jar, it would be full and I would be broke.

Let me just say, there is a technique to using hot glue on felt material.. however, I only got the hang of it after the first two pillows and by that time was sporting two or three hot blisters and real tears while everyone else laughed and laughed and laughed.


At the end of it though, I was empowered with new knowledge with regards to how to use the HGG more effectively when handling material that is flimsy and keen to wrap itself around my fingers with said HOT GLUE on it. And I made the cutest damn pillows EVER!!

I forgot to take pics before wrapping and sending, but here is a cute pic of them that I got my hands on.


Now I have a bee in my bonnet and WANT TO MAKE THE WHOLE SET!!!

First things first.Β  I have to wait for the wounds to heal, of course.

But in the meantime, I am planning on making a Poopface one next and possibly a Nail one πŸ™‚ Oh who am i kidding?? I am going to MAKE ALL OF THEM!!!

P.S. The Grandbaby is due this weekend.. CAN YOU BELIEVE!!!

Stay Fabulous, Live Loud & Laugh LOTS!
