Getting Crafty

It’s that time of the year when the crafty bubbles over. It’s fun to try new things when it’s a little too chilly or snowy to do much outside. I’m always cruising Pinterest for new and fun ideas. Recently, I saw small sea turtle jewelry blanks on Etsy and thought these could make perfect gifts for the beach, lake, and sea loving people. It’s also a nice reminder of summer πŸ™‚ Once I receive them, I will share the finished pieces with you. Just in case you want to try, I have attached three of the craft circles I made for the jewelry blanks. Click below on the pdf link.

Also, on Pinterest, I have been eyeballing the cutest Peg People. When I was little, one of my favorite toys were the Little People. I am probably dating myself, but any chance to feel like a kid again, I’m game. I purchased a few peg people blanks and this winter, I am going to put together a few families.

Little People

Yesterday, I created one peg girl.Β  I could not decided if I wanted to use paint, paint pens, or colored pencil. This poor peg person has every element possible, my test peg (I spent an hour smashing all the colors together like a kid). I really enjoyed creating this little peg, and now she has become my peg on a shelf, although she isn’t any where near a quality piece nor polished (no sanding or seal). I have also decided to try a wood burner to make the lines so I’ll have to let you know how this winter project goes.Β 

I hope everyone is having fun creating, preparing, and making plans with family and friends for a wonderful season of love and joy.

With much love,
