Countdown to Christmas Calendar

This hol­i­day sea­son I’m all about get­ting projects done in a day. This year, I can’t afford the take a week to com­plete a project, you all know I’m very capa­ble of cre­at­ing a mole hill kinda project into a moun­tain kinda project. So I thought and thought of how I could cre­ate a “Count­down to Christ­mas Cal­en­dar” with­out it tak­ing me days to com­plete. I love count­ing down to Christ­mas just as much as a kid and thought I would share with you what and how I made mine. This project should take 3  hours tops from start to fin­ish...

Oldies But Goodies

Are you ready to start cre­at­ing for the hol­i­days? If so, I have sev­eral online work­shops that will keep you busy for months and the best part these are dis­counted and the prices are amaz­ing.

If you look through all the work­shops, you’ll find sev­eral that are free. To get you started...

New Listings in My Etsy Shop

I really enjoy nee­dle felt­ing and as you can see I’ve been busy. I find cre­at­ing some­thing out of a rolled up piece of wool fun and reward­ing. If you live in the DFW area and are want­ing to learn nee­dle felt­ing Car­olyn Ross (The Crafty Scrap­per) and I are try­ing to fig­ure out when I can teach a class. So be on the lookout. This nee­dle felted cup­cake or petit four hol­i­day orna­ment is cre­ated from brown, beige, red and green wool. It mea­sures approx­i­mately 1.75″ in width and 2″ in height. The cup­cake sits in a vin­tage...

Needle Felted Oak Leaf

Needle Felted Oak Leaf

I always love a cre­ative chal­lenge so when a cus­tomer asked if I could cre­ate a pen­dant from one of my dried acorns I of course said sure. As I thought more about the neck­lace I felt (no pun intended) hav­ing a nee­dle felted oak leaf would look adorable along side the acorn. The chal­lenge came when I real­ized I had never nee­dle felted an oak leaf. Amy picked the color of the felt for her leaf and away I went. I think this is the cutest pen­dant and I already have another cus­tomer request­ing a sim­i­lar neck­lace, this time with a...

Needle Felted Acorn Necklace

Needle Felted Acorn Necklace

Here are a few items I cre­ated yes­ter­day using some of the acorn caps from all those dried acorns I’ve been show­ing you. I love nee­dle felt­ing in the fall so I decided to nee­dle felt some acorns. Once I had the acorn felted I decided to accent each acorn cap with a slight amount of metal­lic gold paint. It’s just enough to give the cap a slight shim­mer. To make the hanger so it can hang from a neck­lace I first drilled a small hole in the top of the dried acorn cap, then wire wrapped a hanger and attached the cap to the nee­dle felted...

Drying Acorns

Drying Acorns

Dry­ing acorns is a sim­ple process and allows you to bring a lit­tle bit of nature inside your home. If you don’t dry them you can end up with some unwanted creepy crawlies and I to this I say, no thank you. First you need to wash the acorns in water and give them a light scrub­bing with a soft bris­tle brush, wash­ing removes the dirt and any tiny bugs. Once the acorns are washed, place them on a dou­ble layer of paper tow­els and allow them to air dry for an hour. Pre­heat your oven to 250 degrees. Place the acorns (sin­gle layer) on a...

Happy Fall Y’all

Happy Fall Y’all

To cel­e­brate the first day of autumn I picked at least a bushel of acorns from our red oak tree. I’m now in the process of remov­ing lots of lit­tle acorn caps to add to the tops of some hand­made felted acorns. I love mak­ing felted any­thing and find my felt­ing inspi­ra­tion seems to come more in autumn and win­ter. I’ll have a few sets of felted acorns in my Etsy shop soon. I plan on dry­ing the remain­ing acorns and plac­ing them around the house. It’s great being able to bring a lit­tle bit of nature inside our home and from the looks...

Ron Hinkle Glass ~ Buckhannon, WV

Going to see Ron Hinkle’s glass shop is one of Mom’s favorite things to do when vis­it­ing, Buck­han­non. She has made a visit to see Ron’s work every year I’ve been dri­ving them to West Vir­ginia. She’s also left with a bag full of gor­geous glass to bring home too. If you are lucky, when you visit, Ron might be in town cre­at­ing some of his amaz­ing glass pieces. If he is out on the road sell­ing his glass items his assis­tant Richard is just as nice and loves show­ing how he cre­ates glass items of all kinds and answer­ing any and all...
