I’m in a swap at my CPS group, and our theme was Faberge Eggs. I played around with several ideas, but since I’m on a polymer clay kick, well, I thought I could make it work. I also used some lovely German Scrap from ArtChix and some rhinestones to finish them off. Whaddaya think? To create them,Â I marbled a sheet of clay,Â cut it onto the egg-shape andÂ then added the coils with liquid clay. After curing, I applied […]
You can file this one under “sewing Easter baskets for Dummies”- it’s that easy. These are made from placemats, a little webbing, and a whole lotta crafty! Click on over to J Caroline Creative! and get the tutorial. These would be so cute customized for each child with their favorite color, initial, or character. (My Sweet Boy would love a Spider-man Easter basket.) Thinking of it that way, these could then be reused as tote bags. What fun!
It’s just not fair- Easter is so freaking early this year! I barely had time to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, my birthday is the day after tomorrow, and Easter is this weekend. Ick. Hardly enough time to pull it together to make any crafts and cards. Good thing I just ran across Tipnut‘s site. There is a wealth of good links to projects for decorating eggs, stuff for the house, recipes, and lots of other goodies. Even though it’s […]
I’m home with baby girl today, making green applesauce and hoping that the parade is going to be televised.Â I do have some crafty goodness to share, though. I received two St. Patrick’s Day cards this season. One was from Katherine on my CPS group. She send out this lovely card that has an Irish Blessing inside.Â (PS: that link has multiple Irish blessings, if you ever need one!) The other is from my dear Mom, who found great uses […]
Here in northeast Ohio, we are having a lovely blizzard today. However, it is already spring in my heart, and I’ve found a cute little beaded dragonfly earring project to keep me in denial. I think I’ll sit here and dream of hot, lazy Augusts, with a swarm of them buzzing around…..have fun!
I’m gearing up for my favorite green holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. Since my birthday is only 3 days later, it’s been something of an extended holiday for me. (BTW, Earth Day comes in second as my favorite green holiday. Sorry.) Anyhoo, I always celebrate with cards for the family, dressing up the kids, sometimes even hitting the parade if the weather isn’t too crappy. I decided to try that new metal-leafing technique and make a batch o’ goodies. I ended […]
