Feeling Crafty

December 19th, 2014

These are some of my craft projects. One of the best Summers of my life I spent with my young niece, who loves arts and crafts, so we spent a lot of our time together being creative. And one of our projects was these "Green Dolls," which we made using recycled bits and bobs, paint and googly eyes from the dollar store.

That Summer we also spent time drawing, and making up stories, we painted rocks, we even built a haunted house out of clay pots! It was, like I said above, one of the best times of my life bonding with my young niece :)
 
 
 
Another crafty project from last year was making hat pins out of beads.

Last month we had a storm with gale force winds and it brought down many tree branches. I was inspired to bring this maple one inside for a craft project. Its fairly tall over 6ft.  I am building an anchor and base for it, and I will paint it and possibly add lights. I'll share a photo of the the finished tree when ready.  Here is what it looks like now. 
 
 

 
I added a wee ornament I found :)

Precious Is Time

December 5th, 2014

This is the last gift I recieved from my Dad before he passed away in July 1999. I've played around with the photo a bit trying to give it a surreal feel. I keep this clock in my living room and it is very precious to me. Time is precious.
