A craft swap

Add a comment

So, in order to get me out of my crafting funk, I’ve decided to do a craft swap at craftster. It’s a week of baby onesies/t-shirts, so perfection! I just got a cricut, so I’m hoping to use it for some stencils and I may try to learn some embroidery.

For Christmas, I did make all the gifts, which I didn’t take any pictures of. They included a bunch of hats, a scarf, 2 necklaces, 3 bookmarks, an ornament, a bracelet and a cell phone charm. I’ve also gotten some new knifty knitter looms and I made some yarn daisies with one. I’m trying to get back in the swing of things and hopefully this swap will get me started!

Old and New Stuff

I thought it was time for a jewelry update. Some of these things I made before Sept.Fest, others I’ve made in the past week. I have gotten on a kick of making chains with beads in them and people seemed to like them at the festival. So I have them in a few various colors, whereas I only started with red and black. I’ve also made one that is double stranded. I have a new pair of earrings and a bookmark that I really like too. So, on to the pictures.

But I did pretty well at my booth :) I have lots less jewelry and some more money. I’m so glad to have that over with. I got lots of comments on my bracelet displays (paper cones) and my jewelry. One bracelet in particular, Ashley did not like at all, but I made 4 of because I thought they would sell. I sold out, and made two more, and sold one of those. I will be doing it again next year and hope to have a website up and running soon. Yay! For now, I suppose I will be posting pics of my new creations here. A couple people asked about my information, so I directed them here. I don’t have any new pics now, but hopefully I will in the next day or two. Oh, I do have pics of my booth :)

New Scrapbook Pages

Add a comment

I’ve been addicted to following themes of challenges on Scrapbook Flair, so I’ve got a couple more pages made. The first contest is “Summertime” and you had to scrap what you are doing this summer. I used images of Austin from his pool and the big pools we visited. I used freebies from Scrapbook Flair, from their Tropically Hot Collection.

The next challenge was “Bath in the Sink”. We usually bathe Austin in his tub in the sink, or in the big tub with me. I had one picture from when he got a bath at his grandparents and he was looking down. That wouldn’t do, so we put him in the sink, and started taking pictures. Then I came up with the layout, using the Bubble Boy Kit, by Creative Chaos.

Dress update: pieces are cut out, on to the sewing.

I’m going to make a dress…. hopefully.

I’ve bought the pattern, practice fabric, the actual fabric and everything else I need. Except eye and hook closures because wal*mart doesn’t carry the little ones, only the skirt/pants ones. I figure that’s one of the last things you do anyway, so I have some time I’m sure. Anyways, here is what it looks like, I’m just going to make the straps wider to cover my bra straps. Tell me what you think.
