March Craft Update!

I recorded a video showing most of the stuff I made in the month of March. I a lot of small stuff!  I even started to bead, again.  The beading project didn't end well, however.  I mention in the video about how the finished beaded product came out looking like small broom and that I didn't want to wear two brooms on my ear, so only one earring was made.  Don't you just hate a project that doesn't transform in to craft gold!? Maybe I can attach the broom to a mixed media piece of some sorts.  Anyways, in the craft haul you'll see my regular polymer clay stuff, along with some resin and a dash of jewelry making.  I made this awesome shadow box that I forgot to include in the video...that pic is on my instagram.  I hope you enjoy the video!  I haven't started crafting this month...but am really looking forward to getting started, already!

Rhinestone Cat Ears

Seriously the cutest thing I have come up with!  I've seen so many young women walking around with these cute cat ears...but in a plain fashion.  Well, we all know plain just wont do, so I added colored rhinestones to the mix!  Ta-da!  I have rhinestone cat ears. The 28 gauge wire I used is very flexible and easy to work with.  If you're just bumming around the house, this gauge wire will work well for you.  If you head rocking, ear knocking kitty...you might want a thicker wire to make your ears with. You're PURR-fect, meow.

The Week of Mini's

It's no secret, I like miniature stuff.  I got in to polymer clay because a lot of the ideas out there are making every day things miniature.  My latest creation is a mini crown. You can wear a crown all day, every day and not get weird looks. I've made wearing a crown, social acceptable.  Another mini is the ever so charming top hat.  I kept one design of the top hat very standard but in another design, I went all out and made the mini top hat look like a cake with decorative frosting and sprinkles.  You can watch the tutorials to make both, thru the links provided. 

I posted this on this site's link up party http://todayscreativeblog.net/

Bacon Roses

Cooking bacon this weekend got me thinking...how can I combine Valentine's day and bacon??  Seconds later the idea of bacon roses was hatched.  It really did come together that quickly. Of course, cooking isn't my thing so I thought it would be easier to make the bacon roses out of my favorite medium...polymer clay!  Watch the vid for the tute!  I think this is my last Valentine's craft idea...I'm all loved out this season.

Heart Monster

The Heart Monster is back!  I made this cute guy last year and was so in love with his design that I decided to bring him back for this years Valentine's day.  The heart monster is so easy to make that if you're a beginner with polymer clay, no probs...this is a craft for you.  If you want the written to directions to the tutorial click link here.  However, this year I have made a visual of the tutorial.  Enjoy your little heart monster because no matter who or WHAT you are, everyone needs a lil' love.

Choco Heart Earrings with Frosting Bow

I'm so proud of this design.  The earrings I created are so cute and dainty.  I've posted so many heart projects on my YouTube channel, I'm kinda getting burnt out!  I hope you enjoy the earrings and decided to make a pair for yourself.

Pretzel Heart Necklace

 
 
This week, I made myself a pretzel, heart shaped necklace out of polymer clay. I thought about fashioning a pair of earrings in the same design (smaller of course) but thought that might be carb overload.  The final result came out so cute!  When I showed it to my mom, she thought I glazed over a real pretzel and strung it on a chain.  If you don't have brown clay on hand, you can always use brown food dye or paint baked, white poly clay, brown.  I think even making the pretzel in a pastel color would be cute, there is just so many places you could add your own flair to the design.
