Somthing to do with old shirts

As I was wondering around the Internet I came across this fun little tutorial on how to do Restyled Shrugs from old shirts. I'm excited to try it but think I might go to a thrift store and get a shirt to try it on before I use one of my own. If anyone does this let me know how it turns out. I'm interested to know how it goes.


H.O.P.E. Festival Fundraiser

On Wednesday I was able to participate in the first annual H.O.P.E. festival . It was a fundraiser for CAPSA and 25% of whatever the vendors sold was donated. My friend and I set up a little booth with some of the different projects we have done over the summer.

I learned how to crochet once, a long time ago (just very simple stuff), and over the summer I decided to take it back up. There were a couple of beanie styles that I really liked, so I took bits and pieces of them and made my own. They were a hit at the Festival - I could not be more excited.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to support me and a wonderful cause to help raise money for CAPSA. There are a few items left and over the weekend I will be putting them online - AlwaysBeCreating.Etsy.com. If there are certain colors that you want let me know and would be happy to make you a beanie/scarf.

Crafts for the kids

A couple of weekends ago my niece and nephew came up to stay with us for a couple of days. Whenever they come up here I always try to come up with a craft to make with them. Over the years I have collected quit an assortment of craft goodies, they are from school, old hobbies, new hobbies, all sorts of stuff. The craft has to be something that is easy enough for them to do and something that won't just end up on the floor or become clutter once they get it home. Lately I have been doing things with them that we can hang on the walls. This time we made a little wall hanging, or it could be place on a wall shelf. They wanted to remember the fall colors so this is what we came up with.

We just used some extra pieces of plexi glass and spray painted a frame on them. Then we took dried, flattened leaves and spay mounted them to the back side of the glass. After everything had time to dry we put clear transparency on the back to hold everything in place. It also gave to glass a more foggy look.

I'm happy to say that both of them loved their little project. I was pretty please about how they turned out too.
