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.

Dino-mite Valentine's Card -- Dollar Store Craft

I stopped by the Dollar Store and found some cute wooden dinosaur cut-outs.  I also picked up some heart confetti and a large bag of google eyes.  I brought all my goods home and pondered what I could make. It's not the most creative thing I've ever come up with, but the outcome is pretty darn cute.  You can see the process on my YouTube channel.Dino-Mite Valentine Card Link

Rhinestone Heart Necklace

Another Valentine's Day DIY for ya!  We have several weeks until V day, but there is nothing wrong with being prepared.  You can make this necklace ahead of time and wear it on the days before...because, really; Love should be shared everyday! This necklace takes minimal time to make and uses materials you probably have around your house.  You could always substitute rhinestones with GLITTER!

Recycle Gift Cards in to Book Mark

For Christmas, I got some gift cards.  I love gift cards but when the value is spent, what do you do with the card?  It just seemed like such a waste to throw the card award but if not tossing it, what do I do with it?  I came up with a way to turn the spent gift card in to a useful book mark.  This project was very easy.

YouTube Craft Page and Video Links

So I'm trying my skill at making craft videos.  I move on to different types of mediums all the time...I feel that this is just another step in that movement. I posted the first video, Resin Name Plate on  New years Eve and the newest video Octopus Arm Mustache was uploaded this evening.  I'm having so much fun making videos right now...who knows if this may be my new thing for 2014.
