Day 189 – the unexpected

by Shannon

Today’s little piece of genius is totally unexpected. The girls and I are dog sitting at my parents tonight. I did not have a chance to make any jewelry or scarves today so….
I made this pinwheel out of a pencil, a piece of a newspaper ad and a wire Christmas ornament hook. Enjoy!

Day 188- berry pompoms

by Shannon

These new pompom colors are really going to brighten up the winter. This scarf has red, plum and purple together. It seems very me…. 😉

Day 187 – initial pendants for the first day of school

by Shannon

My girls start school tomorrow! We thought pendants with their initials were a great way to start the year off. These scrabble tiles have the dome top, but I left them otherwise unadorned.

Day 186 – Gracie’s pirates

by Shannon

I have been planning on making some more bottle cap magnets for some time. We clean all the. Recycled caps from the neighboring bar and then punch designs from cards, magazines, box labels, etc.
My sister recently brought me a bunch of designs that included Disney’s Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Jake and friends are my nieces particular favorites and her birthday is fast approaching… Time to get them done!

Day 185 – fairy dust

by Shannon

All other plans have been postponed… my bug decided she desperately needed me to make her former candy bottle into a fairy dust necklace. Pink glitter made everything perfect!

This one is pompom instead of feathers, but it’s lots more soft!
