Spring is here and birthday celebrations!

Beauiful time of the year when spring showers pour and  flowers boom! This month my girls and I have had quite a few birthday parties to attend. I enjoy making handcrafted gifts. There is some about crafting that adds anything you create a special touch, meaning and connection. I was inspired to create this lovely wall decor to two very different but very special little ladies. I have to say I felt like a little girl myself! Enjoy.

The endless ways to use a Fofucha

So as my creative juices continue to flow I saw a pretty headband holder and I quickly saw a fofucha on it. This was truly easy! The only things truly needed were tons of ribbon. I decided to make an orange Laloopsy Fofucha and embellished with grosgrain ribbon ( which I have a complete love with too!) This headband holder is available on my Etsy Shop. . Enjoy!

The word "Fofucha"

Entering the world of Fofuchas

A couple years ago my daughter received a gift from her grandmother. It looked handcrafted and of course very cute. I said to myself, "I can make this." But with lack of time and everything else I decided to just display it. The doll was made out of foamie but the foamie was 3 dimensional not flat so I was left wondering. Last month the doll caught my eye again and I said, "hmmm, it's time for a challenge." I knew this doll was from South America I just had to pin point some type of instruction so I can run with it. Luckily, I stumbled onto the instructions in Spanish or Portuguese. Speaking the language has helped of course to better understand the craft and technique. I must say I have a new passion! I have started with hair barrettes but I am ready to move on to a full size doll, so come back often because the fofucha journey has just begun!
