Craftiness

I've decided to start posting pictures of the stuff I make, paint, decorate, etc. since I spend so much time on that stuff.

These are the skirts I made with Kerstin.  I made one of each for both Claire and Ava.  They were incredibly easy and so cute.

I hand-stitched this applique on a $3 shirt I got at Walmart for Claire.  I actually enjoy this type of sewing.

These are clips I "made".  I don't know if you can really count it as making them since all I did was glue alligator clips on flowers and scrapbooking embellishments.  Talk about easy.

I painted this plaque for my kitchen with some paint I mixed and some wood stain.  I like the way it turned out, although I'm not sure the picture does it justice.

I made this sign for Easter. Waaaay easy and cheap. I just bought some cardboard letters in the scrapbooking section at Michaels and glued them on a board I found at the dollar store. Cost about $3 and took about 3 minutes.

Here's some eggs I made for Easter. Just painted them and glued on some ribbon.

Then I hung them with some other eggs on our chandelier.

I got this adorable wire basket at Goodwill for a couple bucks.  Score! Then I filled it with some fake moss and speckled eggs. I love how it looks so much I might just keep it out year-round.

And I'll end with more fun Easter decor.

very nice. I like to see others craftiness--inspires me, though I don't carry through with projects very well unless I do them with a friend. I like the EAster eggs on the chandelier.
