Crafty Juices are Flowing

I made a Mother’s Day card for my sister (my godmother), similar to the one for my mother.

Then last night I made a 3×2 bead band necklace (Ukranian-style).  It’s just the band for a swag necklace, but I’m diggin’ it.  🙂

            

I’ve already had 3 people ask me to make them one too. 🙂  So, I shall be a bit busy.  May even try different bead colors as well.  😀

Crafty Juices are Flowing

She’s Crafty (and so is he!)

Been kinda dry on the creative juices lately, but I was able to pull a few things out yesterday.

Made a card for my mother for Mother’s Day.  It was my first attempt at a “busy/collage-type” card.  I’m actually quite pleased with it.  I used some toile paper (I LOVE toile!), some lace paper, stickers, paper flowers, ribbon and pearl beads.

                             

My son made a card for my mom (wiht some help).  We used some pre-cut card stock (kit I bought at Target, cuz I liked the vibrant colors), some Becky Higgins paper and a sticker.  Simple but sweet. 🙂

AND my son made a scarab paperweight in his social studies class.  They were studying ancient egypt and made them out of flat rocks, paint, markers and felt.  Funnily enough, my mother loves scarabs (jewelry, but don’t tell Jake), so he decided it would be perfect for her for Mother’s Day. 🙂  I hope she likes it!

Well, that’s it.  Hopefully I will have more creative goodies to share soon!

DragonWillow – Halloween Cards 2010

I actually made Halloween cards this year!

Woot!

Those took me FOR-FREAKIN-EVER to do!  And they shouldn’t have.  My Xyron 510 decided to be a butt and ruin more than half of my batch of skeletons before I could use them.  And they took so stinkin’ long to cut out (Cricut cartridge “October 31”) that I was NOT amused.

This one was SO simple.  Skeletons are just way too scary for babies, so I made this one special for my nephew (he’s only a year old).  Quick and easy to cut out.  I just LOVE the Cricut! (again, “October 31” cartridge).

DragonWillow – Halloween Cards 2010

She’s Crafty! (But Lazy)

I am horrible at keeping up with this blog. 

Which is why I’m putting in a “cheater entry”.  It’s a little jog for my brain, to remind me to post some updates.

I need to show you pictures of my completed projects from CK Summer Camp 2010!  I earned 6 badges; Orienteering, Flag Etiquette, Fire Safety, Organization, First Aid and Crop Fun.

I have to FINALLY update and catalog as a WIP the sweater I am making for my buddy, Nizzy.  She picked the pattern and the colors.  It’s actually pretty quick and simple to do, but crochet is more of a cooler weather craft for me.  I hope to pick it up again soon.

I also need to post pictures and “squee” about all the fun goodies I got at CKC this year!  I briefly played with two of the toys on Saturday and was just like a big kid.  Oohing and ahhhing.  It was just too much fun.

I also made a card for my sister for her bday, so I will have to post a picture of that (or Nizzy will yell at me).

But I *am* here, just not into a blogging routine yet…but that will change, I promise!
