Here's what I've been working on...
A 2013 Memory Jar
(which is nothing more than a jar with our Christmas card in at the moment)
Throughout the year, we will add little things that help us remember
all the special things we did together as a family this year.
Then we'll start a new jar next year.
This is my photo, but not my original idea. I found this great idea here.
(made from buttons and leather cord)
Again, this is my photo, but not my original idea. I found the idea here.
Beaded Butter Knife
I usually make beaded serving spoons,
but I had just enough wire left to fancy up this little butter knife.
I was inspired by my aunt to make these.
Framed Vintage Valentine
I found this vintage Valentine (and a few others) at an antique sale last year.
I wasn't sure what to do with them at the time.
I just decided to frame one.
I'm thinkin' my collection of vintage Valentine's might look nice
on my Valentine themed mantel with this pitcher that I found
at a local reuse center for $1.
I'm working on a Valentine bunting as well.
Scrabble Tile Pendants
Two years ago, one of my students gave me a Scrabble tile pendant necklace.
I love it!
I found a good tutorial on Pinterest for how to make them myself and bam!
You can find the tutorial here.
The picture is my own. It shows two of the pendants that I made.
I use the same chain and just switch the pendant.
But, I did buy a few more chains on Ebay,
so I can make more necklaces for gifts for next Christmas.
Hope you have a relaxing day too!
