Grandma’s Mother’s Day Present

Grandma's Mother's Day Present

Used Porcelaine 150 to create this one of kind plate for Grandma Bertram! What I loved about this project – I wiped that plate clean 100 times before I was satisfied. I love a craft that allows for mistakes!

Flower Necklace

Flower Necklace

I made 3 flowers out of recycled tshirts and backed them with felt – then hot glued them to a piece of chain from Lowe’s. I attached ribbon to either end of the chain so I could change the length of the necklace, depending on what I was wearing it with. I tuck the ribbon under my collar, or sweater. Not the prettiest finish – but no one sees it but me!  One of the first Pinterest projects I have completed.  I did not take any pictures of the Christmas presents I made – most Pinterest inspired.  I will definitely photo them all from now on!  I would like to  work on some tutorials, as well as learn how to link to the tutorials that teach me how to do some of the projects I want to blog about.  I love my hot glue gun!!

Embellished Clipboard

il_430xN.78232688[1]Embellished clipboard….bright and cheery for the spring!!  So this is one of the many clipboards that I made and sold on ETSY.  I really enjoyed selling on ETSY, but my full time job got in the way – and motherhood, and wifedom, and volunteerism and LIFE.  My ETSY shop name is/was Miss Elaineous.  Full of decoupaged items and scrapbooks.  I would love to make a full time living out of crafting and phtotography – anything creative really.  I am not there yet.  Too scared, perhaps – or too realistic…health insurance is expensive!
