Inspiration Workshop: Handmade

I've signed up for the Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop - each Thursday I will share something new, based on that week's prompt and link up on Gussy Sews.  This week is all about handmade.

Since I started doing stamped jewelry I haven't had a ton of extra time to make many things for my girls, myself or my home.  If you read this post you know that I'll soon have a little more time.

A few weeks ago I was at my local Joann's, and saw cute, colored embroidery hoops.  I grabbed a pink one and a yellow one, but didn't really know what I'd do with them.  After having them sit in a plastic bag for a week or so I decided to try some hoop art for each of the girl's rooms.  Coming up with Leila's was easy - since the day she was born I've always sang "You Are My Sunshine" to her, and called her "Sunshine"  Here's what I came up with for her:

For Gianna I knew I wanted to do something with an owl, but wasn't sure what.  After a few days of not doing anything with it the embroidery hoop I made her this:

I am no embroidery expert (by any means!) but I don't think they turned out terrible for my first try.
