November Crafters Party!!

Hello all... this month will be "fun with half marbles & bottle caps"!





We'll make magnets, necklaces or anything else you can think of! I got a big bag of vintage colorful soda bottle caps that will be fun to work with. I'll supply caps, half marbles, magnets, some beads, glue, etc... but bring stickers, photos or whatever else to make your creations!

Hello Craftie Tape Lovers!



After our duct tape meeting, I've been inspired to use more tape in my life. I just ran across this posting and there's even a link to a tutorial. Basically it's all about cutting up your mags and covering them with tape. I love magazines and am thinking that this could even serve as a type of functional and portable shine to my little obsession. It sure beats having them stacked up in my damp basement.

The results are in!

Hopefully i'm not wrong when I say a good time was had by all at Julie's halloween-stencil themed CC. Delicious treats, good company, not to mention an awesome craft that we can all do at home so easily. I for one plan on stenciling on everything in my house. Here kitty kitty...

seashell lights

I saw this idea on the Martha Stewart website earlier this summer, and finally got around to doing it. Of course, I can't find the link for you guys on that hard-to-search website anymore, but basically I bought a couple of baskets of seashells, a tube of epoxy, and a short string of christmas lights (35). I scrubbed the shells with a toothbrush and soap, which made for better connections and the colors totally popped without the sandy dirt! Then expoxied a shell to each light-socket, near the shell hinge, in short sections. A few hours later, voila!
