Shrinky Dinks!

Can you believe I’ve never tried Shrinky Dinks?? It’s on that list of things, like a Polaroid camera, that I always wanted as a kid but never could have. I finally bought some the other day with the Michaels gift card my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday. IT IS SO COOL!!!!! I did these…

New Craft Books

My mother-in-law gave me an Amazon gift card for my birthday to buy some craft books. It took me literally an entire day to choose which ones I wanted to buy… I finally settled with “We Make Dolls!” by Jenny Doh, “How to Make Stuffed Animals” by Sian Keegan, and “Wee Wonderfuls” by Hillary Lang…

Crafting with Juniper

Last weekend I had a mini craft night with my Juniper. She chose a doll from one of my new books, picked out the fabric to use, helped me trace and cut the pieces and sat on my lap while I sewed her up. She did good for the most part, but got a little…

Weekend

Friday was an absolutely beautiful day. It was 61° and sunny. (Which was super nice because I was awesome and locked my keys (and phone) in the car while at the post office. I enjoyed the 1.5 mile walk back to work though.) So imagine our surprise when Saturday evening it started snowing! Talk about…

PR&P Week 1

I finished this dress last night for week 1 of Project Run and Play. I brought it to work with me today with the intent of taking some nice pictures on my lunch break, since it is already dark by the time I get home from work these days. (Hate that…) Well, with my luck,…

Beaver Sculpture

Beaver Sculpture

Look what I found! This is the beaver that I mentioned in my last post. I sculpted him for my father-in-law back in 2007. I’d forgotten how cute he is. Lately I have been really missing sculpting, it’s been a long time since I got out the clay. Last time I did was back in…

Birthday Craft Night

For my birthday this year (and I’m thinking I’ll make it a tradition!) I had a Craft Night with a bunch of family and friends. It was a lot of fun having so many loved ones in our home at the same time. That is my favorite part of parties. And we sewed a few…

Birthday Goals

28 Before 29

Yesterday I accomplished something that has been hanging over my head for over a year. Quite literally. When we first bought our home, I started painting the built in shelves in my craft room. And they stayed about 80% finished until yesterday! Of course, I decided to change up the colors and just REPAINT both…
