Crafty moms!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So, I've always been super crafty. I crochet, paint, do so pretty good nail art (if I may so myself lol), I upcycle things I get from goodwill, and recently got into polymer clay, which is super fun lol!. 

What kinds of crafty things do you do and which is your favorite? (As of right now, I'm getting pretty into the polymer clay)

And let me see your beautiful creations! =)

Not the best, but I think they're pretty cute lol! Once I get better, Im thinking about opening an Etsy shop and selling some and decorating phone cases with them.

youtube is your best friend with DIY things like that (or pinterest) I just made a ear ring holder from a thin piece of carboard and some cute fabric! lol. I would suggest going to goodwill. Find a cute frame, paint it, and look up some tutorials of how to make it into a jewerly holder. I really want to do it lol

jealous... i want to figure out how to make a place to put my jewerly besides hanging the rings off necklaces and using a coat hanger for necklaces and braclets.

I would love to learn how to make buttons. Unfortunately even though I can do some crafty things, I'm not artistic at all. They would just be a mess. lol

Other than crochet I also like to redo furniture and find projects to do on pinterest. I have a few on my blog, but I have to admit, I have been slacking on everything lately. (including my poor little blog)

My daughter likes making things out of polymer clay. She made necklaces, well the charms, for all her friends this past Christmas. Her true passion is duct tape. She has a book of things to make, but she usually uses YouTube. If you want to make something out of duct tape, there's a YouTube video for you.

I scrapbook, but my crafty skills end there. I admire anyone who has a knack for that stuff :-)
