Wedding Craftiness :)

Well, I have been a crafty crafter lately! My precious cousin got married last night to the sweetest guy, and I have been working on chalkboards and such for the big event. I didn't want to post before now, since I didn't want to ruin the surprise! I wish I had taken pics of the stuff at the wedding, but I didn't. Maybe the photographer got better shots!

Straw Weaving

This is an inexpensive end of the year project that the kids all love. They were getting tired of the wonder-loom bracelets, so I thought I would teach them something that they could do this summer that wouldn't break the bank. A bag of straws from the dollar tree, a skein of yarn from Wal-Mart (multi-colored), and some masking tape and they are ready to go! This is very important, since most of my kids don't have much money to spend. There are several tutorials on line, so I won't go into the how-to's. I just wanted to let you know how popular this was. I let them take them home, so they could finish them. Guess who was popular that day? ;)

Long time no see...

Sorry I have been MIA. My father passed away on March 29th, 2014. It was too soon, he was way too young. He was a wonderful man who always challenged people to be their best. I have not been up to posting since then, but it is time to get back to living. I haven't been my best, not even close. I am afraid I am letting him down. That is the very last thing I ever want to do. I am excited to say I will be attending the Tennessee Arts Academy in July. I will be reporting back on the things I learn. I am planning on going back and posting some of the projects the kids did toward the end of the year- see you soon.

Pretty Little Piggies

The kids finished these up this week and I just had to share. Aren't they adorable? We started with a step by step drawing on pink cons...
