Craftiness.............

It must just be the time of year but everyone seems to have their 'craft' on! I am probably the least crafty person I know. I have no patience. I want to do it quickly and finish quickly! But somehow I managed to get these done and I think they turned out pretty okay. The pics are mostly for my girls who are always asking to see what I've done!
This is a recipe card holder. I just modgepodged the paper on - embellished it with paper flowers and made the magnets with irregularly shaped glass stones. You glue the paper onto the back of them and then stick a magnet on the back. Nothing special for sure.


These came in a set from the Wood Connection in SLC. We have nothing of the sort here in Southern Oregon. Anyone want to start a business? The set cost about 22 bucks which I thought was a really great price. They stand about 16 inches high or so. Modgepodged paper on them, painted them black and put some glittery sutff on those.

I actually came up with this one. Paul got us a new chop saw and belt sander. He 'chopped' up some 4X4 wood post and a base on it. I painted everything black and then cut christmas paper squares just with about 1/4" of black showing. Modge podge them. Then I cut out some trees, a star, etc. to put on one side of each of the three blocks. More modge podge. Then I stacked them and put a ribbon around them. I really like these.



This was a plate from Walmart. About 4 bucks. I created this tree pattern. Modgepodged it right onto the white plate. I cut out the circles from some scrapbook paper and modgepodged those on as well. It was fun to do and I like the finished project.


I think I've done something else but I can't see it out right now in the mess of all this crafting! Please share your ideas with me! Love to steal away those cute ideas!

WOW!!! You are making me want to "get my craft on"! I didn't know you were making all that fun stuff! I LOVE the block's that have the Christmas paper on them, they look kind of like the ones that Summer emailed about. I have been wanting to do some crafts lately too...especially to make new decorations for our new house. Anyway, I love the ones you did, they look great!

Do you love Modge Podge? It is a great crafters tool. I love the blocks I have been trying to think of what to make for Grandparents Christmas Presents I think I found it. Maybe some Christmas Pictures of my girls...hmmm.Thanks for the idea.

Way to go Mom! And you said you weren't crafty. I hope we get to reap the benefits of the chop saw at Thanksgiving! And I am totally with you, the crafts have to be easy and quick... that's all I have time for with three little ones to tend to. I am super impressed!

Those are all SO cute. I'll have to try them, but chances are they will just turn out not so cute. ha!

How fun! Gets me excited for the holiday season!

Dang Woman! I am seething with jealousy-I have not had a chance to do much crafting at all lately with my classes-and look at all you've done!
PS-We need to do something! My classes are done this Saturday-so I am trying to get everything done early this week so I can craft and play this weekend.
We should do our own Super Saturday with April and we all make a bunch of Christmas gifts...
Love your face!

I would love to be included in that Super Saturday-- You can craft you just have to be in the right frame of mind. We have the same disease- impatience-

Please meet someone who is certainly less crafty than yourself...myself...who is not even totally sure what modge podge is! (i have a feeling i probably shouldn't admit to that!)
