Recent Craft Projects

I wanted to share some of the crafts I have been working on recently.  I've had a lot of fun trying different projects.  Let's take a look.

 I wanted to use these Altoid Smalls tins to hold my best beads.  I decided to cover the top with textured fabric so the 3D letters wouldn't show through the top.  I think they turned out great and I use a strong magnet to hang them on my metal display board.

 They were super easy to make, just a little Mod Podge and fabric.

I think they turned out great.  I found the more textured the fabric, the better the result.

I made each of the kids a fox body pillow for Christmas, I think Sebastian likes his.  It is funny how the fox's nose looks like a moustache.

They are pretty long and cozy, just right for a snuggle.

I made a mobil with these paper animals and wire.  I love it and think it turned out better than expected.

I used glass beads above each animal.  I thought it would be interesting to make it horizontal.

I am experimenting with wire and hanging mobiles.  Here is a bird prototype that I like a lot.

I recently got this carving tool at Michael's with a 50% off coupon (whoo hoo!).  I can't stop carving stamps with it!  I even sent Sebastian out a few days ago to Michaels to buy me more carving medium (with my 40% off coupon, yea!).  So I am hooked and having a great time sketching little pictures and carving stamps.

I also attempted to bend wire into words and found out I am a natural.  I have done everyone's name (even Luci) and am now doing fun words, like Love.

 My new camera is really crisp, using the light box is a dream.

Just wanted to show some of the fun things I have been up to lately.  Hope your week is going well.
