Last minute craft ideas

Who couldn’t use a few hugg and kisses?

Over at they have the directions to make a cute little jar of just that. They are using dough but you can change that to polymer clay. This would be a nice last minute gift idea for the kids to make for Grandma and Grandpa, ect.

And if you are into bath and body crafts there are a lot of ideas starting on this page. Many of these use ingrediants that we have around the house.

And then if you like beading this is the page for you. There is plenty of small craft that can be made up before Christmas. Like the easy beaded earrings here.

Or if you knit and do beading there is cute ornaments here, where you can do both.

I am sure you can find a lot of ideas for those last minute gifts.

Till next time.

 Happy Crafty Day, CraftyLinda

I my post on July 25 about Cindy Lietz’s treasure hunt I told you about how it was going to work.  Well, yesterday I received the email that told us who won.  It was Cindy Erickson!! Congratulations again Cindy.  Cindy Erickson has written in a couple times saying how happy she is.  I hope she keeps us all informed on all the things she making using the videos that she won.

If you haven’t checked it out yet you should Cindy Lietz site is great.  She loves to chit chat with everyone and has lots of good information.  Her motto of ” I learned by my mistakes you don’t have to” is right on the mark.  She has articles on everything from pricing your beads to buffing.

Thanks again to Cindy Leitz not only for a great website but on the treasure hunt that was so much fun and educational.

I’m honored

Happy Thursday everyone.


Yesterday was my birthday,  so I didn’t spend much time on here.  Had a great b’day.  Went to my daughters for supper and had a nice time. When you get my age b’days don’t have to be celebrated with big parties.  It’s just great to be another year older.
 Today I went to my email and there was a letter from flickr telling me some picked one of my items as a favorite. So of course I had to check it out. It was Humblebeads. She has a great blog

Let me say a few things about Humblebeads. On her blog she has Ornament Thursday, where she has the prettiest pair of earrings with the instructions on how to make them. She tells your where you can get the supplies and a little bit about Ornament Thursday and of course more links to check out. There are so many places to check out that I got lost for a while and still haven’t seen everything I want. Heather is a multi talented lady, not only does she do some incredible bead work but does illustrations for children’s books.  She has been seen on TV, in magazines and is very action in the art world.  


So you can imagine how thrilled I am about one of my items being put on her favorites list. That just made my day. Thank you Heather.
