Wedding Charms

Do you need a quick gift to give to a new bride? If so, this is one fast project she will cherish and can either wear, place in a shadow box or on the spine of a wedding album. To create the bead flower bouquet all I did was place one bead onto a headpin then curl the end of the headpin to form a small loop. Once I had 12 completed I bunched them together and wrapped a headpin around the middle of the bunch. Then I attached a jump ring to the wire wrapped area. Super simple. Supplies Used: 13 Headpins, 12 Beads, 3 Jump Rings, 2 Long...

Lemon Bath Bombs

Lemon Bath Bombs

With all the craziness of bath bombs right now, I decided to give it a go and attempt to make my own. I looked all over Pinterest at the ingredients in lots of different bath bombs and by adding and taking away certain ingredients from recipes here is the recipe I created. These little bath bombs smell just like lemon bundt cakes. On my next batch I will add a bit more Lemon Essential Oil (EO) to my next batch as it didn’t smell as strongly as I wanted in my bath but this is the only thing I will change when I make them again. Also...

Need a crown, of course you do!!!

Saturday, I was at The Crafty Scrapper attending a birthday crop for my super sweet & awesome friend Trisha Perkins. At her party, she had Cheryl Darrow of Ten Seconds Studio come and instruct everyone on how to make leather crowns. This was WAY WAY WAY out of my comfort zone as I’m a vintage paper kinda girl and there was zero vintage paper to be found here, but let me tell you I now have a new addiction. Working with emboss-able leather is so fun and if you ever have the chance to take one of Cheryl’s crown classes do it, you will LOVE...

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Nothing like a french bread clover covered in cinnamon sugar to start your St. Patrick’s Day morning. This is really easy to make and pretty darn yummy too. All you need to make french bread clovers is a tube of Pillsbury Crusty French Loaf, melted butter, ground cinnamon and sugar. Instead of greasing my cookie sheet I placed mine on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Preheat the oven per instructions on the tube. Cut 5 long strips of the Pillsbury Crusty French Loaf. Leave about 2 inches at one end for the clover stem, then loop...
