I don't make many crafts for Christmas since I already have so many decorations. I do usually make a few things, but I normally give those away. So, now that Christmas is over, I seem to be on a crafting binge.
So far I have made:
(15) Teeny Shadowboxes for Sarah's Heart to Heart Swap. I can't show you inside yet.
(1) Vintage Valentine Corsage for the Sweet Goodness Swap. (Mighty cute, if I do say so myself) It's only a hint....I haven't mailed it yet - so I can't show it yet!
(1) Medium Felt Autograph Dog from Creative Breathing.
(1) Small dog from the same pattern
(3) Beaded dolls based on Oodles post
I was lucky enough to score a nice amount of vintage beads (and a variety of already completed dolls and animals) on ebay for a song that I paid for with my ebay bucks...can you say FREE?)
(1) Vintage Shiny Brite Heart Shaped Wreath
I made a vintage Shiny Brite Wreath at Christmas, took it to the Flea market and sold it for a pretty penny less than 24 hours after I took it in. I was shocked! So, I was determined to make a heart shaped one this morning and take it to the Flea Market today. I gathered up all my vintage red, silver and pink ornaments and started gluing. I made my heart out of a wire hanger and then wrapped vintage tinsel garland around it.
After I added all the vintage ornaments, I added in some new glittered ornaments, glittery red skeleton keys and red, silver and pink glittered cupcakes. I had bought all of these things after Christmas for cheap. I added in some red berries for depth and a nice big red ribbon for hanging at the top. I hung it up to take a photo of it and something terrible happened. I fell in love. I can't sell it! It's too perfect. It's a keeper, I'm sorry to say. I don't have enough to make another one to sell, but what the heck. I won't make $50.00 selling it, but then again, I won't spend $200.00 trying to find enough "stuff" to make another one to keep!
That is a new crafting all time record for me. And, I'm not done yet - I thrifted a huge piece of aqua fleece today and it will be magically turning into wee sweet bluebirds in the next few days. Tweet!
What have YOU made?
