2 Simple weekend crafts

So I've been sick for the past 4 days. I've been miserable! My throat is killing me, runny nose, sneezing and coughing. I've been in the bed most days. I was getting restless so I decided to go through my craft stash and see what simple crafts I could whip up to help keep my mind off being so sick.
Here's what I came up with.
Wrist warmers made out of socks.

Rosette girl's headband made from an old T shirt.

Quick and easy.
If you'd like me to post a tutorial, I'd be happy to do so. My photos didn't turn out so well, so I figured I'd skip the tutorial this time.
Check out some more fabulous crafts here:

  1. hi, jae! i really like your blog--it looks professional! can you help me with personalizing mine more so it doesnt look so cookie-cutter? i am a tech semi-retard!
    cute crafts and cute kids fotos!

  2. I've only learned all these things by playing around with my blog. I'm not a tech person either. I'll try to help you the best I can :)

  3. super cute gloves, Jae! Thx for following, I guess we can figure out the "blog world" together!

  4. great projects!

    I just wanted to let you know that your last comment on my blog made me cry! I know exactly how you feel about it going by way too fast! uggg! bittersweet!

  5. My Mom always said that the time goes by too fast. I remember sitting in the back seat of her car and I was about 7 years old when she told me this. She said, "In the blink of an eye, you will be grown up." Gives me chills just thinking about it because that really does seem like just yesterday. HUGS!

  6. your mom was the best! i really felt blessed to have known her and your dad, to see what good parents could be like, what a stable home was. i remember when jon called me to tell me of her passing(i cannot believe it has been 15 years!), and i am still so, so sorry that you had to lose her so early in life. it is clear that you have inherited many of her qualities and, certainly, her crafting talent. much love, synidie

  7. Hi Jae, Love these ideas. If you are feeling better, I would LOVE a tutorial for these. They are so cute. My girls love hand/arm warmers. Brings me back to the 80's! I am now a follower!

  8. Jae...I love those! The gloves - hand warmers are so darling! I just bought a pair at Target! Wish I'd seen this earlier!
    You inspired me! pls come back next Wed. and link up you inspiration!

  9. Thanks all for your compliments. Jenny, I will try to get a tutorial up in the next couple of weeks. They really are very simple. I just went to Target today and bought several Christmas socks on clearance for $1.49. I plan to make arm warmers out of those. I'll post a tutorial. Happy New year, all!

  10. Oh those arm warmers are so on my to-do list now, so cute!! thx for the inspiration! im a new follower :-)


  11. Robin, what is your link site?

  12. I love the wrist warmers out of socks idea. I'll have to try that for my daughter. She is always complaining of cold air up her sleeves even though she has gloves on. Great thing to do with old socks too. Thanks for sharing. Saw this on My Delicious Ambiguity.
