Clay Beads!

Have you ever used Sculpey clay before?

My mom bought some when we were young, for some reason – to make dollhouse people food, perhaps.

Now, it’s fun to pull out the box-o-clay with my own kids and get our sculpting on! I tend to repeatedly gravitate towards making guinea pigs – but this time, I had a few special requests – and it was so fun! 

Check out my Instagram or Facebook page to see what some of these turned into – jewelry-wise!

Which animals should I make next?

State your Necklace.

My newest clay creation!
I wish I had some Minnesota dirt to put in the tiny jar!

Now I just need to find all the other 49 state cookie cutters…

Fall! Earrings! Hunger Games!

I find the fall to be a really inspiring time of year.
Maybe because of the smell in the air
Or the way everything changes and there’s nothing you can do about it.
I haven’t used my drawing tablet the last few weeks,
I’m more focused on crafting right now,
Especially with Handmade City coming up soon.
Plus it’s just been a really crazy/busy/sad   month/week.
Also I started reading the Hunger Games,
And it’s one of those trilogies that demands you continue
Since they leave you on a cliffhanger at the end of each book.
Except hopefully not the last one, which I borrowed from a friend today
And will probably read it all night long instead of sleeping.

Should I see the movie after I finish the Trilogy?
I can’t decide.
Sometimes movies just ruin your imagination.

Here are some earrings I made though, that I really like.
They’re in my Etsy shop.


Babychild and Me, today. I lub him.

Official Feather Weather.

This past weekend my mom and I went up to Minnesota
And hung out with the girls on her side of the family at their cabin.
It was nice and cool there
And now that we’re back, it’s nice and cool here too!
Today I wore a sweatshirt.
And I bought some rusty-red coloured soft jeans
And also wore my Minnetonka mocs.
Therefore.
It’s officially feather weather!
I don’t know why, but feathers and fallish weather seem to go hand in hand.

I made these earrings last week.
I’ll be making more like this to sell on my Etsy
But I like keeping some of my stuff to wear. 🙂

 

 

Time to go outside and sidewalk chalk with the wee one.
