So, this hop is about loving the women in our lives. Well the most important woman in my life is my MOM! She is always there for me whenever I need to talk, laugh, cry or just vent. She always has the best advice and seems to always have words and encouragement to cheer me up. So to honor her I made her this cute little pin cushion.

I just learned how to make stick pins and I totally can't stop making them, so I needed a place to store all of them. So I decided to jump onto Youtube to check out some videos. I found a video tutorial by Luvleescrappin.  And now I have been making these like crazy. I think my mom will really enjoy it.
Plus, the best part is now I get to show her how to make them.
They are super easy to make, I used a paper clip holder I found at the dollar store, and then hot glued some decorative rocks to the bottom (inside) to add some weight. Then I wrapped the outside with some paper that matched my fabric that I used for the top. Next, I make a sort of bubble with the fabric and some stuffing (I used the inside of an old pillow), then hot glue the "bubble" inside the paper clip holder. Then I just used various trims, flowers, feathers and bling to decorate it. It is super easy to make. If any of you are interested in a video or step by step instructions, let me know and I will make them for you.

Ok, how about some yummy blog candy!! Well as many of you know and some of you that don't LOL, I just openned my own webstore called www.whatsscrappin.com I have some awesome deals and would love for you to check it out. But back to the blog candy, I am giving away the NEW Over the Hill cricut cartridge to one lucky follower who leaves a comment.
