Pretty Sticks

Looking for a new idea?
I had these left over temporary tattoos, 
yet I was wondering what I could do with them.

I made one little pretty stick......

However, I thought this box frame could use an update.
I made a bunch more and decided to make an art work out of these driftwood pieces.

A New look for the photo wall.

Little Indian Headband

Recently, Kayla went to a craft birthday party and came home with a bunch of pretty feathers.
She really wanted to make something with them. 
I bought these leather straps while on holiday,
 so I thought they would be perfect for making a
 little Indian feather headband.
I found some beads with large holes and trimmed the tips of the feathers to fit.
We braided the leather straps,
 then put it all together.

One happy little Indian Princess!!

Hues of Blue and Dip Dye Too

I recently found this piece of fabric I tie dyed about 6 years ago. 
 I never made anything from it, but it seemed to catch my eye.
  I think it's the dark blues
 that I am attracted to at the moment.

I actually kept the dye from years ago,
so I mixed some up to experiment with a few different techniques.

Ombre Linen

Simple bottle cap with circles

Fan fold half dipped style

Letting the pieces dry in the sun.
Now to figure out what to make.

Good thing I didn't have too much left over, 
or I might have started dying everything I could find.
This pretty little doily could not escape.

Love the blue and linen together.

 Just admiring how the fabric turned out.....
