Just a quick note, I'm still here. Had been ill for a few months and seem to have lost my mojo or muse or whatever I had. I'm in the "thinking of crafts" mode and ready to start the "creating crafts" mode. in fact, I'm off the the dollar store as soon as I finish this quick post. Hope you are still creating. feel free to send me your projects. Thanks, alberta/tipi
These Yellow mason Jars are perfect in any color. The perfect place to use up that extra spray paint and old jars. Check out how Joy does it at her website and get to spraying some for a great Christmas gift.
I love this reused denim pocket. A great project for a teen or oldster. There are so many variations I can think of for this, most ( ok I confess, ALL) would include my obsession with buttons. There is a very complete tutorial to use at Lifemadecreations. Happy crafting :)
I have often seen linens on those clearance isles that would make beautiful rugs. Especially colorful tablecloths for the front porch. This is so inspirational and would make such a unique gift for someone on your naughty or nice list. There is a great tutorial at Hayestone for you to check out.
There are many ways to upcycle Altoid tins, this site shows what must be the easiest way to disguise what the tins are. They're the perfect size for gift cards or small gifts. they also make great business card holders. Take a peek at Sunny Days in Second Grade you'll be buying Altoids before you know it.
We all probably made these at some time. Sometimes I just need a reminder of how fun some simple things can be. I have a couple of these ornaments that my sister made with my daughter when she was young. Some of my favorite things are my ornaments and the memories attached to each one.
Katie over at Twinkly Spangle has a great tutorial on making this beautiful ornament. She says it's easy, I think once you start you'll have to make several. If you do........... put me on your Christmas list :)
Just a quick note. I've been under the weather for a while now. Haven't been very creative and apologize for being absent from the blog. Don't give up, keep sending your projects and I will do my best to get them posted. Looking forward to seeing your creativeness and feeling like getting back into my craft cabinet soon. Thanks!!
