My Day To Put A Flag On A Stick

There's been some seriously cute flags blowing around this week thanks to 
Madame Samm's Flags on a Stick blog hop and cheerleader Thearica from Pigtales and Quilts!

I'm loving the heart flag pole I was so lucky to receive from
It is beautiful and thanks to them I have a place to hang my new flags.

I wasn't sure what flag to make that would "say something" about me. I came up short with ideas
at first, especially ones that I could hang outside and not cause trouble with the neighbors!

With winter hanging on FOREVER, this flag says something about me...I want warm weather!

It's Spring!
I played around with felt using my embroidery machine to make this one.

This flag (it's two-sided) says something about my younger days...
I was always hosting or being the prime suspect at a baby shower.

It's A Girl!
From Amy Bradley's "babies" patterns

It's A Boy!
From Amy Bradley's "babies" patterns

This flag says something about my favorite kind of party to host...
I love birthday parties!

It's Somebody's Birthday!
I just love this kid's face from Amy Bradley's "Peek-a-Boo" patterns

Of course, the flag that really is all about me says something about my Monkey Boys.

Beware! Monkeyboys Ahead!
This adorable monkey can be found over at Craftsy...Jungle Babies by Mad Creek Designs.

I've had so much fun thinking of flags to hang on my pole...thank you again Flag Outlet!

  14. I love that you could use your embroidery machine. I don't have one but I am fascinated to see what people can do with them. I like the idea of the baby announcement flags. They would make great new baby gifts.

Thanks so much for your inspiring creations ... :) Pat

  35. Carol, You've done it again!! You and your creative mind has thought up the cutest and quite practical Flags!! These can be used over and over...like you, I am often in the planning of a shower of some type. But I have to say, Monkey Boys captured my heart!! You will need another one because the wear and tear of this flag will bring the need for another replacement. So cute!
