you can NEVER have too much yarn!

i have a feeling that's how jelly bellie lovers feel, too.

personally, i would feel sick, but i'm sure that's how DH feels in my craft room.

FYI: Target sells boxes of Jelly Belly popcorn ONLY.  I've bought it for the bf because he's crazy enough to like them, just like you guys.

Another Ronnie fact: the blueberry flavor was invented especially for him, so he could serve red/white/blue jellies.

Too funny -- all of it.

I hope those portraits are sealed in resin, otherwise the mice would have some fun gnawing away at them.  

Hmm, a popcorn Jelly Belly sealed inside a resin pendant...I've never worked with resin, pendants, or Jelly Bellys (eating them while crafting doesn't count!), but it's an idea...

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule. Feel free to contact me re personal swaps or just checking in. I'll be popping in when I can.

I angeled for simplyfussfree for this swap, she had requested a handmade naturey journal, and I'd been wanting to try my hand at journal making for awhile! I soaked the pages in green tea to give it a little color and texture and sewed the pages together...then I tried a ton of different covers and bindings, until I settled on an old book cover that I glued the pages into. I decorate the cover with bird cages and birds, for an uncaged journal theme.

Journal binding:


Bottom binding of journal:

I had a really great time with this swap!

Great journal.  I particularly love the little birdies on the spine.

Kookaloo_Star claimed me for an apron but a postal worker must have run off with it because it never arrived  Cry

She very generously made me a replacement which arrived today!  The picture is not great, but the apron sure is!  There is decorative stitching on the ties and the pockets are fantastic - I think I have a new crafting apron!  Thanks Kookaloo_Star!

First of all, thanks for resending it! Second of all, what a cool apron idea - great job! Now I know what I can do with all my old high school jeans.  Grin
