This is the third of three craft posts that were planned for Wednesdays.
Lots of beads...gold plus jade,jasper,agate and onyx are some of these semi precious stones. Just bracelets and earrings.
These pins are much easier to make than it may look, using Polymer Clay and just baking in the oven.
Needed an earring tree but didn't like those plastic ones so...made one.
Again using Polymer Clay wrapped around a wire coat hanger and of course decorated.
Not real crazy about the tree but the rose and pearl accents were fun to make and are pretty.
Lost count of how many of these were made. Had a slight problem if I let them burn too long...what a pain cleaning up spilled wax.
The ones poured into glass became my favorites. No mess!
Dollar store glass containers were my best find.
Love my soaps! Made all colors,scents and shapes. I continue to make soaps when I run out. Also made some with oatmeal,vanilla extract,tea,aloe vera gel and luffa sponges,just to name a few ingredients. Personally,the favorite ones are made of goats milk,using real almond extract and a touch of food coloring.
All natural and smell delicious!
Soaps were stacked and wrapped,then these dolls (Christmas tree ornaments )were tied to them with a ribbon. After the soaps are used, these beautiful porcelain dolls remain a keeper!
Haven't perfected all my crazy time-consuming crafts...but do keep trying.
Crafting and other interests have slowed down over the years,
but once I get started there's NO stopping me...just ask my DH.
