This weekend, get creative not only with your art, but how you hang it. yzzilnoaj made some whales out of clay and mounted them on pallet wood. She then got extra clever and hung each piece with rope and a pulley. Wow! They look so great. I’m digging around in my stash for a pulley, stat!

I found several wonderful projects inspired by the painting; so many that I even included a bonus project in this week’s article. (You’re welcome.) Wow, this window is simply fabulous! CrazyEyeGlass glued millions of tiny seed beads to the glass, and […]

@Home This Weekend: Paint a Music Box!

This weekend, get out your paints and embellish a plain wooden box. patty_o_furniture got extra creative and painted a Hogwarts scene reminiscent of Van Gogh’s masterpiece “Starry Night”, and then added workings that play Hedwig’s theme. I think you’ll agree that this was a truly magical transformation.

This string of fish […]

Everything is just duckie!

I just finished putting up my rubber duckie shelf (spoiler alert, it’s not big enough!) and am all over everything duck right now. I love ducks. And I might have to crochet myself this duck, because, while I don’t get the reference (I’ve never seen the show), the duck is brilliant! There’s a link to […]

More Art, Less Craft

Today, let’s take a look at some of the phenomenal works that can be found on the More Art, Less Craft board.   These animal specimens by Deee are just incredible. They are constructed of paper, wax, and fibers. They almost look real, but have a mysterious, other world quality to them. This diorama of […]

She then covered the entire piece with a rough coat of white acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry, she removed the letters to […]

August 28th is Race Your Mouse Day!

Yes, it’s time to dust off those meeses… mouses… mices… little squeaky things and race them! Where – and why – is unclear, so I think it’s fitting to make up our own rules! I say the first race is to hurry up and download this ADORABLE pattern by by amapoet and crochet up a […]

July 2nd is World UFO day!

July 2nd is National UFO Day, and what better way to celebrate than with Aliens?! Not necessarily the scary monsters they are often portrayed as, some of them are quite cute, cuddly, and sweet like Squibbles the Alien Plush by jenniferphelps126. Or this adorable Ali-bum by VickyStitchUp. And when they do happen to abduct livestock, […]
