My friend Natalie suggested a while back that we have a friendly craft extravaganza. Let’s get one thing straight, I am not a craftster. I usually don’t like to be associated with crafts. When I hear the word crafts I usually picture a table of older women painting wooden cut out scarecrows … using raffia, glitter glue and googlie eyes. These awesome images also pop into my head. (please don’t be offended if these delightful creations are adorning your home this moment)
I was thankful when Natalie arrived and raffia, glitter glue and googlie eyes were not present among her crafting supplies. Natalie has taste, I had no need to fear. So we gathered together around a bowl of awesomely good organic homemade granola (thanks to Seara) and began a craftin’. And here are the end results ….
I’m super in love with my necklace I made …. It isn’t quite finished but here is what it will look like when I am done …. tutorial found here http://pretty-ditty.blogspot.com/2009/10/beaded-fabric-flower-necklace-tutorial.html
and we made these super simple headbands…… http://racheldenbow.blogspot.com/2009/11/braided-headband-tutorial.html
and something similar to this …..
I will no longer shaft the craft. I am not ashamed.
