Working on Stuff!

This past weekend was crazy fun.  My little brother and his girlfriend came to "spend over the night" as my niece would say.  We watched lots of movies, did some crafties, played video games, my brother gave his girlfriend a tattoo, and we went bowling.  You know, normal family stuff.  I spent a lot of time working on my giveaway for the Spring Fling, but I can't show you THAT.  What I CAN show you is what I made last night!  My friend Molly is an amazing, accomplished photographer, and recently she approached me about making some infant headbands for use in her studio Cagwin Photography.  I'm super excited to do this for two reasons.  For one, it's something I haven't tried yet, and the other?  Well, didn't I mention that she's an AMAZING photographer?  Last night I got started.  This is the piece I made.
Isn't it awesome?  The only problem is that it's too big.  It's about 7 inches long and 4 inches wide.  I think I'm going to stick it on a stretchy headband or a barrette.  What do you think? 

Some other cool stuff has been going on this week.  We've gotten THREE features this week!  My heating pack, barrettes, and pincushion were featured on A Recovering Craft Hoarder.  My Fancy Pants headband was featured on Krafty Kat, and my heating pack was featured on Sassy Sites Trash 2 Treasure post.  My cameo fascinator was featured in the Etsy treasury Fascinate and Impress, while my Woodland Bed photograph was featured in the Etsy treasury I Believe in Fairytales.  These things make me happy!!!

Okay, so seriously, what should I do with the piece.  Headband?  Barrette?  I really love it and I want to make sure I do it justice.

It would be beautiful on a headband. I love making fascinators, too, especially for the first Saturday in May (Kentucky Derby, of course)!
