3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Teacup wreath on: January 30, 2017 07:49:22 PM
I saw this on pinterest and had to give it a try. Teacups and the center plate are all from Goodwill. I used a foam wreath base and two industrial glues to attach the cups. I decided to add some greenery and hung with wire using a screw. It is a bit heavy so I hung it in a place with low traffic.

I love all the traditional trappings of Christmas but this year I thought it would be fun to explore the darker side of the season.

Think the Nightmare Before Christmas, Krampus, a yule tide Junker Jane, possessed toys under the tree.

This is not an anti-Christmas swap. It's just meant to be a fun, creative outlet where we can do some ghoulish dark crafting!

This will be a 3-pt swap. Craft either one large or one small and a medium.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Creepy Christmas -3 point swap on: September 23, 2016 02:16:41 PM
Anyone up for a Creepy Christmas swap?

Think the Nightmare Before Christmas, Krampus, a yule tide Junker Jane etc.

This is not an anti-Christmas swap. It's just meant to be a fun, creative outlet where we can do some ghoulish dark crafting!

I totally want to make a creepy teddy bear and angel like in Krampus.

I am making this a 3-point swap so it is fun vs. overwhelming. So make a medium and a small or one large.

Anyone? Also I would prefer to be just a participant vs. the organizer. Anyone want to try their hand at organizing??! Smiley







9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Bohemian backyard wedding on: June 14, 2016 01:59:17 PM
My husband and I decided to host our second wedding in our lush backyard. I love vintage and refurbished items. I also love bold colors and a mix of blooms. I found an old four-poster head board at a thrift store for $5, painted it and added flowers, foliage and origami hearts to use as a ceremony backdrop.

I had those two old chippy doors in my house as decor. I dragged them out along the fence and added fresh flowers. The ladder was actually my husband's grandfather, who was a house painter. I had the bike (yes I actually ride that!) and the basket.

We did a lot of with origami hearts, tulle and backyard flowers. Instead of a conventional wedding cake, I bought a sheet cake with a wildflower design and made a bride and groom doll to sit beside it.

This wedding was a lot of fun to plan! Affordable, fun with a lot of crafty flair. Thank you for looking!
