Great job!  No need to experiment with the bending.  You made it look authentically 3D with the shading in all the right places.  I'm amazed at the great stuff that can be made with shrink plastic.
May God bless Joel.

Cloth and Clay is my fav.  They've got 20% off all regular priced yarn now until the end of Feb.
If you're into jewelry making, there's Bead Bazaar on King St. in uptown Waterloo and Gecko Beads in the Mill in St. Jacobs and their second location is in Elora.

Very cute.  And good for you for attempting an entirely handmade holiday.  Hope all the recipients of your gifts appreciate how much time and thought you've spent in making things for them.

I liked this one the first time I saw it - thanks for reminding me of it.  Yours is coming along beautifully.  What kind of yarn are you using?

Love them and I can't wait to see the Flintstones earrings.

That's funny LindsayLuu, because we were there yesterday at the time that you posted your reply.  We had a great day and got tons of craft supplies.  Even better, when we crossed the border back into Canada, we were honest about how much we were bringing back and even though we were way over, the customs officer just told us to have a good evening and be on our way.  We'll be back again soon.

Our craft club loves to travel the 2 hours or so to shop in the Buffalo area so I thought I'd share some shopping info and hope that others will add to the list of good places to get crafty items.

We love the Joann's Superstore at 4101 Transit Rd in Williamsville.  If you email their guest services dept. in advance they'll email you a printable 40% off coupon that you can use in the store.

Bead Creative at 5401 Sheridan Dr in Williamsville is great.  They claim to be the largest bead store in Western N.Y. and we love the selection there.  Prices aren't bad either.

We weren't impressed with Bead Gallery on Eggert in Amherst (on so many levels that I won't even get into it) and we won't be going back there again.

We also liked A.C. Moore at 1581 Niagara Falls Blvd.  Similar to Joann's but they carry some different brand of jewelry making components and beads, so we found it worthwhile to go to.

Not craft related, but we always go to the Tops (pronounced Taps) Market at Bailey and Maple while we're there because we just love to go up and down all the aisles of grocery stores when we're in a different country - and Americans always get products years ahead of us, so it's just fun!

Here's a short video that shows how to make scrolls with a chain nose and a flat nose pliers.

It probably took about 3 hours - longer than it should have, but it was my first time using a jig and having to replace the amethyst chips every time I smashed one with the hammer didn't help either.

I made this bracelet using 20 gauge silver wire and a jig. Since the wire flowers were a bit uneven, I decided to use amethyst chips instead of perfect little round amethyst beads in keeping with the naive look. I hammered each of the flowers before connecting them with jump rings. Unfortunately, between hammering and trying to flatten the wire with pliers, I managed to break more than one of the amethyst centres.
