Those who know me well, know that I love crafts and crafting and being crafty…. and craftsy. Trying new projects brings joy to my soul. So, my current new-to-me idea is soldered charms/ornaments. A friend of mine shared a link to her friend’s etsy.com site where she sells these darling handmade trinkets. See more at: www.MyMelodieDesigns.com.
Not knowing how to create these little gems, I did what all craft-direction-needing minds do… I went to YouTube. Yes, I found many instructional videos and made my shopping list. Today, I’m off to JoAnn’s to get the booty… with coupons, of course. For the first time ever, I’m glad I saved my glittery scrapbooking paper scraps from my Christmas albums. Sweet! I knew I’d eventually find a reason to use them! It has presented itself, much to my liking.
This week I’m getting together with my highschool bosom friend, Connie. We are known for trying new and uncharted waters when it comes to crafting. In March we covered the antique chair with vintage quilts and green piping. I can’t remember if I blogged about that, so here is the finished product:
I also can’t remember if I ever showed a pictures of our Macramé beach bags??? I made mine about 1/2 a day ahead of Connie and figured out that I should have made the flowers all smaller. So her bag has tidy, neat flowers in little rows and doesn’t look as spread out as mine does. Here’s mine:
In a few weeks I’ll post our finished product pictures! Please stay tuned!
