Original Artwork painted on cardboard , so many ways to recycle… so little time.
I loved making this piece. Handmade cross-stitched art framed with a vintage recycled frame. It’s been loved in my home for years, perhaps it’s your turn to enjoy….
These are a big hit! Made from recycled materials, and cactus from local Mankato greenhouses….. buy local is how we shop also….
It’s early December and I’m snacking on walnuts when the perfect shell is in my hands.
Needless to say I went right to the craft table and created this little beauty.
The fun of picking a perfect tree, bringing it home, and adding trimmings captured in a walnut…..
Often I am asked for replacement dollhouse furnishings customized for the customer with patterns and colors, or sometimes simple plain sets too.
Anyone can buy replacement parts online these days, however not handmade one of a kind sets…
The arrival of a new baby weather family or friends is always worth a celebration, what better way to show that than a handmade baby blanket made with love?
This an old pattern of my grandmother’s she taught me when I was 9…..
Yes, I was watching the movie and started concepting.
As you see it took me a couple tries to narrow it down.
I absolutely love these little guys!
Handle with care, it’ll poke ya! ha ha
A dear friend took a trip to Arizona and while looking at photos of the trip, I decided to try my own rendition of a cactus….
So much fun to let the world around you inspire a project.
Have you ever used a crocheted scrubby?
They don’t scratch surfaces and they actually get the job done!
Also they work great for skin care and beauty needs….
Randomly, as I’m working on another project, my husband blurts out
” Babe, I want a blockhead…”
Persistent as always he shows me a picture of a stuffed animal on amazon, laughs and walks away.
A week later I walk by and toss this to him
” Challenge Accepted”
….. he was speechless
To his surprise I was able produce it from glancing at the picture .
