Creative Workings

So I've been trying new craft things this summer. My summer of craft. I start my residency at Gwinnett Medical in the ICU, Aug 10th. I am really excited - but until then it's study for NCLEX and craft! Here are a few thing I made up this last week.

These little clay mushroom charms I made for my friend Jean to use in her hemp necklaces. I also made plant stakes in the same colors for my terrariums.

I love this Votive Candle Holder. I made some hanging ones too which I will photograph this week. This lime green votive cozy is stiffened so it stands on its own and doesn't sag. I found the glass at a thrift store. Glass stands 4inches tall & 2.5 inches wide. Listed in etsy shop.

So I'm not one who loves to do my hair everyday. In fact the only reason it's long, especially in this Atlanta heat is that my husband likes it & it's easier to pull back for work.
So normally I rock the bandanna or a crocheted kerchief thing.
A friend took a bunch of my work up to Bonnaroo this weekend to sell & in digging stuff out for her to take & to post on the YART sale, I realized I use to make headbands and kerchiefs.
Long story short. . . . what do you thing of these? Are they too girly for adults? I put the flowers on pinbacks so they are removable.
I'm doing the Saturday Market again at the Guilded Angel/Candler Park Market, so I'll see how they go over there. I also made just some flower broaches - going to add some vintage buttons.
Would like some feedback . . . price? I was thinking $8

Yesterday while waiting for the gas man, I made a bunch of little clay mushrooms for my terrariums. They turned out super cute.

See - I told you they were super cute.

They were so cute that this terrarium found a new home :-)

Tawashi's Galore

Tawashi's - cotton scrubbies which allow you to throw out your nasty kitchen sponge. Here I've made lots of larger ones for the kitchen (3.5 inches) and small ones for face washing (2.5 inches). Will be listing on etsy on friday.

Machine wash & dry. I think I'm going to do $5 for big ones, $3 for little ones. And some sort of deal for multiples. Thoughts?

Kraftworks Prep

I've been gearing up for Kraftworks tomorrow night at Youndblood. I'm going to bring a few terrariums I've been working on & see how they do.

This is one I'm especially proud of.

For this one I made the little mushroom out of clay - my first experience working with clay. I crocheted a hanger out of cotton. And glued a vintage button to the lid after I spray painted it.

I used aquarium rocks, potting soil, charcoal and moss from my garden for the plant life.
