Peep Earrings

These just might be my new favorite earrings.  They are just peep-a-licious and super easy and quick to make. All you need is some sculpty, two earring hook things (not the technical name), two eye screws (or you can make your own with some wire. I just have a bunch of them lying around), a little bit of paint, and some glaze (optional).
First you are going to make some itty bitty balls of clay in your desired color. The ball for the head should be about 6mm and the body should be about 8mm.  My ball chart only goes down to 6mm so the two balls fort the ears are about 3 or 4 mm.
Lightly squish the head and body together.
Then light press down to flatten a little bit. Do the same for the ears.
I found it was easier to kind of score the parts a little bit.  It looks a tad ugly at this stage, but once you smooth it out with you fingers they should look fine. This does take a little playing around with.
See, they come out just fine and dandy.
Insert the eye screw and bake and then put the earring hook on.
Paint little eyes and a nose on and then add some glaze and let dry for a bit. I had them hanging on a pencil over a pickle jar to dry.
Them put them on a cute peep shape board and they are ready to be put into the Easter basket!

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath.
First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, Spooktackular

Happy Monday!  Wow was last week crazy.  I experienced more drama than I ever imagined and I am so glad for a brand new week.  They super short version is that some people got very emotional that a song wasn't going to be included in a winter sing-a-long.  The full version takes me about 20 minutes to say and I don't even know how long that would take to type, so lets just enjoy my layout for the memory nest.  I used a bunch of stamps and colored them in on this layout.  I was in a very stampy mood.  My favorite part is how the title turned out.  The little lamp post sticker was just a perfect fit.
Normally I do a pumpkin patch layout, but we never made it to the pumpkin patch this year.  We had too many activities and the one day we could go, the weather was a disaster.  We had a solid downpour all day long and that's no fun when you have a baby. I did try to make up for it by going around my neighborhood and getting some photos of my kids.  My daughter says she was fine…

Scrapbooking, Melt My Heart

I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash. I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)
I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.
