Magnets Part Two.

I LOVE photo gifts. There are so many options out there these days. I bought more of those glass beads only bigger ones this time. I tried putting photos underneath and they just seems distorted SO...I compromised and decoupaged the photos on the top and stuck a magnet on the back. I made a ton of these last night while sitting in front of the T.V. I am only showing you the ones of my kids. Aren't they cute?

Meet My Girls...

I am so excited about these. I made them as Christmas gifts for some of the younger girls in my life. I think they are the sweetest things. I forget how much I paid for the clothespins but I think it was a couple of bucks for 30. I also bought a heavy duty craft glue that works on practically everything. It was also a few bucks. The fabric for the clothing was scraps I had from old stained up clothing. I used paint for their faces. I tried using sharpie markers but it bled a lot and that annoyed me so I painted the sweet little faces on.

If you are interested in making your own they are simple. There isn't really a method, though. I think you have to apply your own style. I spent a lot of time looking up these dolls on line and they are all dramatically different. If I get around to it I plan on making a doll pouch for the girls. Of course I will post photos.

Thursday 13....Crafty Books.

Here is a great list of craft books that I want to use. I haven't had a chance to look at them all but I have borrowed a few from the library. I would like to own them so I can make notes and what not. Let me know if you have read any and what you think.

New Furniture!!!

My neighbor gave me the nicest piece of furniture. I am so excited about it. I can't wait to get sewing. He does remodeling in nice homes. Someone was going to throw this out and he saved it. Yippy for me. Hopefully I will get it all organized and will get to post new projects later this week. I am already working on a few. Plus, I am going back to my Mom's next week and you know what that means..... Lots of sewing/crafting.

Please ignore the 1970's paneling in our basement.
