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...

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
