Everything in the gallery is so amazing - people have been so creative, I think I've been kind of pedestrian with my ideas in comparison!

I love the melted-bead owl - I want to try, but I am also anxious not to set my kitchen on fire by accident - lovesclutter would you mind explaining how you made them melt please? (I have never tried melting stuff before....husband insists on more direction before I am allowed to try!)

I used sweets4evers instructions, and used my craft toaster oven instead of the regular oven. It took about 10 minutes at 425, and I had it on the front porch so no fumes were in the house (the toaster oven cost me $3 at a yard sale brand new) and I have one I use for food in the kitchen.

I laid them out on the tray using colors to copy as close as possible my source image, a clip art found on the web, laid the beads hole side up and carefully set it in the oven, kept an eye on it and pulled it out.

I brought it inside to cool and decided to glue felt to the back so it would travel better. 1st attempt so check out all the awesome stuff sweets4ever does.

I received an AMAZING package today from yardenxanthe!  This post will be image HEAVY since she sent me so much great stuff...

She made me fascinator style headbands with removable/exchangeable adornments - the feathers came from a dreamcatcher!  ($2)


She made me these awesome face plates for just $4 - maybe it will get my son to eat veggies if they are on a cool plate Smiley  I think the robots are my favorite.


This is a floor cushion "pouf" she made me out of small area rugs - once I stuff it I will be the perfect place to rest my swollen feet at the end of the day!  And it only cost her $3 - she is a dollar store genius!!!


And now for the "extras"

This is a banner and mobile she made for my son Malachi in the colors of his nursery (green, black and yellow) - the mobile ring came from the round part of a dream catcher.



She made me a glittery portrait of Elvis - for my Elvis themed bathroom - so cool!  This has been on my list of wants for YEARS!


And here is the whole kit-n-kaboodle (minus the moble)


I cannot express how much I love all of the great crafty-ness you sent me yardenxanthe! I LOVE everything.  You are a dollar store goddess and I bow to your creativity and skills Smiley
THANK YOU SO MUCH YARDENXANTHE!
