I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Happy Happenings & Floppy Flowers


1. First, one of my faithful readers commented that after reading the Floppy Flower post she tried the floppy flowers and made a headband for her little baby girl. I asked her to email me pics so I could post her results...below you will see little "SweetCheeks" and her rocking headbands!

How can it get any cuter than this? I'll answer that...it can't!! I bet she has a proud grandmama and aunt! I could pinch those cheeks!

"I can't hold my....eyes...open... another ... minute." Oh, the life of a tiny model! So exhausting! Thanks, MOM, for sending me "SweetCheeks' " pictures! I love it when somebody gets inspired and I get to see the results.

I took a quick cruise to *Tuesday Morning to find other girlie items to embellish. Below you will see the results! This is fun! I might put a floppy on Coach's hat.

Left to right: *Leather Mary Janes with embroidered hearts; *Ultra-suede hat; pink headband and tiny cloth sandals. I added satin flowers in various sizes to each item.

Granddaughter will love wearing this soft suede fur-lined hat. Warm and cute!

Can you think of anything sweeter than these Mary Janes? Nice value at Tues. Morning.

I remembered I had bought several crocheted baskets at HobLob for 68 cents each...unbelievable! So I added three sizes of the floppies to it.

Who could resist this cloth hat (little strap is tucked under for pic)...it was just begging for a floppy...99 cents....Tues. Morning. One more? Little cloth newborn sandals...with white satin floppies! This would be a cute happy! See more Floppy Flowers ideas here.
