I have a farmgirl friend and we are trading button fairies. Here's the one I made for her.



On the back I added a charm she can take off and use on a necklace or something else if she wants.

Today it is more journals, some ATCs for a JAM . . . and get started putting Christmas away, but I'm in no rush for that.
Happy Saturday farmgirls!

Love those Julie!

Today I am painting garden mushrooms (re-purpose project from 4 years ago....), labeling a box for ornaments for each gift recipient so I can easily add more later throughout the year, crocheting and probably adding another "to-do" to my list per a request of my mother.

Julie..those button faeries are so adorable .such a cute idea
Ceejay .I now those women were very proud to have their aprons you made them. I worked as a concessions cashier one winter and I hated the aprons we had to wear. They were faded and so worn out ..even had stains on them. I thought the whole time.if i just had a nicer one I would feel better about it .
Judith..i have had "make yo-yo's" on my to-do list for several years now. I think they are so pretty and colorful.I just never seem to have time to make one :(
Kristina...love the colors in your afghan. Looks so soft nad cuddly also.
I am still working on "word" jewelry. Then I took a broken gold necklace and added beads to the length and a new toggle closure. A bit of wire wrap and green dyed howlite and it is bright and colorful now .

Julie, I really like your fairies. Lisa, I like what you did with the gold necklace. I finished my second set of wrist warmers. These are for my daughter - a very late birthday present.

Lisa, I really like the word jewelry you're making!! A LOT!

Michele, cute wrist warmers! I bet your daughter will love them. :)

I'm currently working on a wall hanging type quilt thing...no pictures, but will post soon. Can't finish it until I get some interfacing for the chickens I'm supposed to add to the front of it. Who doesn't have that in their stash? Oh yeah. Someone who is just starting out on this sewing thing....

Love to look at all the projects you're working on! :)

Michele .......the wrist warmers are so adorable . The buttons are the perfect finishing touch .
The word jewelry is such fun... I enjoy cutting the words out of this old book.
Looks like i will have lots more of crafting time on my hands .I spent the evening in the Er last night .
Sigh..........took me 4 months to get back on my right leg and now have a toe to knee permanent brace on that leg. Well ....I have been walking like the Dr ordered. Seems the left knee now has torn ligaments from throwing all my weight on it .
I have just figured the universe is telling me I need "craft time " I actually am looking forward to what I create.
I am getting my chickens end of March so I am excited about that. I cant wait to have my own flock of girls

I love those wrist warmers. Very pretty too.

I'm working on a mixing bowl re-purpose project (http://scrapreusedandrecycledartprojects.blogspot.com/2012/01/garden-mushrooms-made-from-metal-mixing.html)

....cutting yo-yo's, working on some knitting, and crocheting and some ornaments....

Well, I finished the Mister's scarf just in time for our anniversary on Monday. Still spinning when I have time, but haven't had a chance to sew all week.

On top of that, he added a pillbox hat to my to-do list since bigmouth me mentioned a hat-making workshop I took several years ago...oy vey....

My fingers were itching to work in polymer clay today. I wanted to make something cute and cheeful to sit in my craft room and remind to smile. I made this little clown and named her ClaraBelle.

Have decided to do some painting around the house to freshen up a little. Bought new dining chairs and have painted the dining table Coral to match the sofa. I wanted to keep the table as my husband made it out of a 200 year old, 32 pane, window from Vermont. It looks fabulous! Of course now I have to paint the living, dining and kitchen walls. Then on to the bedroom. Guess I'm coming back to being myself after this crushing past few months.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Hi Girls, Today, I am going to get my housecleaning done...and then...it is up to the "alcove" for me. We have a small room at the top of our stairs...the door is even little...so cute, and I use it for storage right now. We have a futon in there...with a lamp...so if our son is here he has a place to sleep. But, I have not done a single crafty thing since we moved in...and I am itching to get back into my stuff. So last night I cleaned up the room a bit...and today, I am setting up my table, and pulling out all my craft things. The room has no windows..it is above the garage...but, I got a space heater and it warms up the entire room nicely...so I am hoping this will become my space. Wish me luck...:) Happy Crafting:)
