A Crafty Conclusion

This is a story of a happy little craft that was relatively painless to make and resulted in a very pretty flower arrangement that perhaps will adorn our table at Easter.  But in order to fully understand how these flowers rose from the ashes of crafty destruction, you'll have to go back one post (or click here) and read about their humble beginnings.  Plus, you won't know how to make the egg-shaped…

A Crafty Train Wreck

Note:  Feel free to use this tutorial as a lesson on how not-to-craft.  This is the anti-craft.

 

As my kids have grown older I have found an inner craftician that I never knew I had.  This should give all of you with craft anxiety hope because I am truly as creative as a wet sock.  I have now spent more time (and money) in craft stores in 2011 than I had spent in the past 30 years of my life…

A Simple Spring Celebration

Yesterday was the first day of spring!  Hooray!  Are you ready to celebrate spring with your children?  I know I am, even though it is snowing as we speak (another 4" or so...oh, bother).  But snowstorm or no, it is officially spring and that deserves a celebration!  And what better why to celebrate than with a craft?  Well, a party would be fun, too, but we're fresh out of cupcakes.  This craft took about 15 minutes and it only required materials I'm sure you…

Happy End of Holidays

Tonight The Bear and I went out to do some last minute shopping for some friends. MISTAKE! Big mistake. It was raining and crowded and absolutely ridiculous. Baby Bear was awful, which is pretty typical this

month. Probably because her nap schedule, that I worked so hard to

enforce the first 15 months of her life, has been totally up in the air

while we run errands and I give into her fits of clingy not wanting to

nap-ness. So, let me say, I cannot wait for Christmas to…

DIY Christmas Tree Photo Ornaments

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-is-absolutely-most-magical.html

Christmas is absolutely the most magical time of year, however in Australia, rather than sitting by a warm fire as the snow falls outside, waiting for Santa and his reindeer to arrive, we Aussies are at the beach, in our togs, eating pineapple and throwing another shrimp on the BBQ.



Oh, and…

My SIL's scrapbook craftiness!

So I used to call myself a scrapbooker until I met my sister in law and from that moment I put my scrapbooked items in a closet with shame. See I thought I was good..but no, I wasn't. My sister in law rocks. She really is the best scrapbooker I know.



She has made me the most amazing awesome stuff and I want to take a moment to thank her and show off her stuff. The very first thing she made me was this little flip book out of paper bags. Yep, she's so crafty she can make… Continue
