Oh Keely...!

I was in the car with Keely yesterday and we were talking about her
favorite topic "Wicked the Musical".
She is extremely interested in the whole story and why the different witches were treated the way they were. Both Henry and Keely are like me, they totally take in the actual words to songs and try to figure them out. With this musical its a little painful because obviously it is a whole story, not just a line or two to dissect.
She was going on and on about all the different traits kids in her class have when she finally commences with this statement:

"Mama, It does not really matter what you look like, it's all about your character!"
Pretty profound for a 5 year old!!

Crazy Delicious!!

I went to WONDERLAND bakery today for a birthday cupcake!!!
The store was so stinkin cute, very pink, and cupcakes were made to order!!
Above are my skull cupcake and Matt's boring boy cupcake.
The little stand my cute cake sits on is from my friend Jenn. I was happy I remembered to bring it with me:)

Wednesday Sized Toast

I messed up on some jelly, it turned out too small, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to make Wednesday some toast!!

Toast and Jelly

I love toast. I don't eat it near as often as I would like to, darn carbs.
The grape jelly toast is a card I made for a friend. The other two, will be cards later:)
The background for the grape card is from a pack of coasters I found in the $ 1 bin at Target. I made the jelly shiny by squeezing "crystal effects" on it. You could probably use any sort of glaze but I like the super shiny quality of the crystal one.

Collage Fun...

I loved these pictures of the kids close up. They really look like each other so close up. Henry said if you could not see Keely's hair, they would look the same.
I used a ton of things in this art, the more mess the better in my opinion!
I made the pinwheel in the looks better in person. It was fun to make!
I got the inspiration of the doodle, "Dearest" from this blog.
Her stuff is super fantastic..I would love to do stuff that cool... Someday!

Yeah! I completed a project!
I used a few of the bookmarks using the heart beads I made the other day.
I tried just to kind of throw them together with as little thought as possible so I did not get caught up with matching everything exactly.
I like the way they turned out. I glazed the beads with sculpty glaze before I strung them to make them look a little fancier:)
Now, I just have to figure out who to give them to!

I made these beads today with sculpty clay. I think I will glaze them and use them for bookmarks.
Stay tuned for the completed project!!

Buttons Buttons Buttons!!

Let me start by saying...I LOVE BUTTONS!!
Just another random crafty thing I can't live without!
I made these button flowers for Keely's teachers. I even painted the vases!
They were yogurt jars...but I saved them and painted them with glass paint and glaze.
Easy, fun and not terribly expensive, gift.

More Needle Felt Fun!

I still have not decided what the heck I am actually going to do with these felted creations but I loooove making them. So far I have made them into pins, but am definitely wondering if anyone would dare to actually pin them on something.
This latest creation is a flower, although it kind of looks like a monster eyeball.
