Friday Craft "Show and Tell"


I've decided every Friday, I will am going to write about the craft projects I have been working on that week. I feel like I'm in a really creative state of mind, and have been having fun with some ideas I've wanted to do for awhile. First, I love jewelry and am always trying to come up with some new ideas. Fun, funky stuff that I would love to wear and is unique. I put together some cool new necklaces, with pieces of "stuff" I've collected the last few months. It finally came together. Of course, the week would not be complete without making a few bracelets. I am certifiably OBSESSED with vintage buttons. I found some really cute sticker buttons at the BYU craft store (is a sweet little gem, and a nice break sometimes) and I had to have them. They truly spoke to me and really reflected my personality. A little hot glue and I had some adorable magnets. (I especially love the "I Love Blogs".) Finally, I bought this cute handmade kit at the "Beehive Bazaar" a few weeks ago and finally sat down and put it together. I am totally charmed by it; as were the "DOTTERS" and I plan to make one for each of them. They love little things....anything tiny or something with lots of parts. Luckily this little family house is contained in a cute box. I had lots of fun creating this week. Enjoy the show and tell!

A few necklaces I made with objects I love. Vintage buttons, Buddhas, these cool birds I found at a boutique, velvet ribbon and before you know it..... fun funky necklaces.

Fun magnets!

Meet the family, with their beds, table, chairs, potted flowers, clothesline, stuffed animal and pillows. I used scrapbook papers for wallpaper, rugs, etc. It was fun to "decorate" this little house.
