Crafting Fun...It's Party Time!

I thought I would take a break in the Christmas tour to share a few pictures of my latest crafting project. These are totally frivolous party crowns and hats.
Who wouldn't feel like Queen for a day in one of these?
Can you imagine a little girl's (or big girl's) birthday party with party hats that are completely over the top? What fun I had making these. The best part was putting all that wonderful crepe paper through my sewing machine to make the ruffled trims.
I had so much fun making these and I have so many more ideas. I am thinking it would be a blast to make these to sell for birthdays, anniversaries, showers, etc.....what do you think?

I have some wonderful exotic feathers that a blogland friend sent to me....I am thinking of incorporating a few of them into a party crown. Hmmmmmmm....the thinking cap is on!

Too cute, Bev!

Crowns are all the rage these days...when I took on the name of Queen of Dreamsz way back when...no one was really making them..I've got journals full of my drawings of crowns...hopefully one day they will surface. :0)

I have so many things bursting forth right now in the way of creating...It has literally been years since I've felt this creative freedom. It seems to take years to settle again once major life changes take place. I believe we have finally arrived! :0)

Have fun...these crowns are the most whimsy I've seen you create...keep going...it's a blast to play like a little girl.

Hugs, Steph
