I had a pretty crafty weekend. I started out creating a load of new resin jewelry pieces. I’m doing a craft show with my mom and sister later this month and I just wanted to create some extra inventory. Whatever I have left over after the show I’ll add to my etsy shop. I made a bunch of new leaf rings and large pendants and a bunch of paper spiral rings and pendants.
Then Saturday evening my mom and sister came over for some crafting. I had the idea to carve a stamp with a zigzag pattern to make more books like this previous one I made and sold. It’s funny to me – My sister said “you can make them in different colors too” and it hadn’t even occurred to me because I’ve always been such a black and white stripe addict.
A little bit later in the evening my SIL and nephew joined us. Doc colored on the chalkboard wall and hammed it up showing us his “orange juice face” which basically looks like he just bit into a sour lemon.
Then, since Dacia was over, we started making some felt play food for my nephew’s second birthday which is next week. I saw this pattern online for orange slices and then modified them. I liked my orange so much I just had to make a lime, lemon and grapefruit. I never really got into the softie felt food art/craft phenomenon, but these are for actual children’s toys. I have to admit it was fun to make and they came out looking great. Now I can’t wait to make some sweet peas.
