I have been playing with my beads today!

I hope to create more necklaces in this fashion. Up next....maybe blues or greens!

Thanks for reading!

Look at what I made for my daughter!

I have been creating and crafting all kinds of things lately. This is the one thing that I like about winter...there is not much else to do but stay inside and when I am inside I like to craft!

My daughter recently asked my about our wearing cloth placemats. She asked where they came from and such. I told her they were a wedding present for mommy and daddy...yikes almost 10 years ago...and that they were starting to wear out and we should get some new ones. She asked me if she could have her own special placemat so I agreed. I thought I should maybe crochet a few new ones and asked her what she wanted....she quickly said RAINBOW.

I looked through my cotton yarn and found some small balls of yarn and decided I would make her a colourful placemat.

This is what I came up with.

My daughter loves it and really enjoys using her new "rainbow" placemat.

My next project....for me....a crochet table runner in neutral browns.

New items!

I have tried to remain busy here so far this year. I have been crafting a lot...trying to keep busy and warm. Its so cold here right now!

After the rush of Christmas, I decided that it was time to take out my clay and do some more creating.

I have tried a few new techniques with my polymer clay and have a few new listings in my Etsy shop.

Here are a couple new listings:

I have also started listing beads in my shop too. They are polymer clay beads that I have made myself. Stay tuned though....more to come including some really great lentils!
