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.

that's awesome. I tried playing with duct tape like that and I can't really do it. I wanted a cute duct tape wallet. Do you have any pics of anything you've made?

I crochet and upcycle goodwill stuff and furniture.

Here is a dresser I bought for $40 and sold for $300.



And a desk I bought for $20 and sold for $150. I also used it for my daughters shabby chic bday party:

I used to do pottery, painting, pastels stuff like that. Since I had my kids I've started making photography props, I crochet cute hats and stuff. I was thinking of trying polymer clay because there is so much cute stuff you can make!

I would consider it crafty. Am curious how you get them glossy. Mine are always dull.

I am crocheter myself. I also knit but I don't devote as much of my time to it as I do crochet.These are pictures of a tank top,a baby sweater, and some booties I made. Right now, I am working on a granny square jacket, and a baby dress.
