Cat Face Birdhouse

This was another gift I made for Mother’s Day… and another thing I didn’t think through fully before starting!  The intent was for the mouth of the cat to be centered on the hole of the birdhouse but the birdhouse I bought didn’t work out that way.  My only excuse?? Shopping really frazzles me right now.  Too many people, too many things to remember, just too much but I really wanted to paint this birdhouse and worked around my mistake as best I could!

Mother’s Day Flower Pens

“I hope everyone had a great Mother’s day yesterday!  I wanted to share something  I made for my mother-in-law!  She loves funky pens and I remembered seeing pens made out of the heads of artificial flowers and thought what a great gift for her!  So…. I made a little “bouquet” of them for her for Mother’s Day!

This is  quick and easy project and sure to brighten up anyone’s day!

Hershey Kisses Roses

It was years ago the first time I made these.  I honestly can’t even remember where I saw them the first time but I loved them.  Chocolate and Roses in one?  How much better can you get than this?  AND it is so easy to do!  It would be a great craft for kids to make for Mother’s Day and no tools necessary, not even the glue gun!  (Please excuse the ugly burn on my thumb in some of the pictures!  When I was making the pinecone topiary the glue gun decided it wanted to fight dirty…. and it won!)

Bath Bombs  – Part #1

And since it went fairly well, there will be a Part #2 lol.

I was really concerned when I started these.  I have read many horror stories about them disintegrating, not sticking together,  sticking to everything they aren’t supposed to and more! I will admit, I did have the sticking to everything problem… well, at least sticking to the molds!

Soap Making – Part #2

Today I decided to play with soap again lol.  It is a novelty being able to do a “craft” project and end up cleaner than you started!

This time I decided to experiment with a few different things.  I wanted to try a sort of marble effect, adding a different colour accent to the soap and the addition of other ingredients/additive type things…
