ATC, bead WIP, and….a bunny!

Here is another ATC for the 7 Deadly Sins Swap, this one is for Wrath/Anger. A bit simple but I like it. You can’t read the words in the pic, but they are from the description/definition of the sin.

And this is a beaded bookmark in progress on my bead loom. After this I’m thinking I’ll try a more complex pattern. This one I’m just doing as I go and it will be wavy.

And for something not crafty; Last monday this cute little bunny showed up in our yard. We’ve seen it every  night since and it was out hopping around this morning too. We think it might be living under our shed. The dog keeps going nuts because she wants to go out and catch it XD

Crafty update

I am finally posting some things I’ve been working on. I will post swap stuff later but I need to wait for my partners to receive for so they don’t get spoiled!

First up is a little felt man; the first item I have needle felted! I do not have any white, so for now he has no eyes, but I still think he is cute.

Next is a bracelet I made on my bead loom that I’ve had for years. These are even some beads that originally came with it.  I have some new things in mind, but for now I have been sorting the beads since they are all mixed together. I’m not even halfway done yet D:

And lastly, not counting swap stuff, is my very first bag! I did not use a pattern but made my own, another first, and I did my first fabric covered button too! I’m really happy with how this bag turned out. It’s simple but it’s just the right size. I even upcycled the strap from my old bag. The fabric I got from the July B-Day card swap over on Swap-Bot. Cute huh?

It has two pockets.

My mom wants me to make her a bag now too, hehehe. Next time I’ll finish the insides better so you don’t see the seams so much. I was just in a hurry to get this done before I lost my motivation since I get distracted so easily. It took me around four hours just to do this! My machine kept eating thread on me so I had to keep rethreading and ripping out a few times. But it was worth it.

Also, if you like swapping stuff, do check out It is super fun and there are swaps for everything, especially for crafty people.

Paper Beads-Done

Here are the paper beads that I have made so far. I’m thinking of using up the rest of my paper and make more of them since they are so easy.

Paper Beads

I joined a paper bead swap the other day so last night I started making them. They are really easy to make so I think my partners will get more than the minimum.  I am using origami paper and they pages are a perfect size. I get a dozen beads for just one piece of paper!

I will post pictures when I have more done.

Chainmaille, wire jewelry and beads oh my!

I’ve started dabbling in other craft fields, or will when the supplies arrive. I’m hoping to make some nice jewelry and accessories from all of the above and if they are good enough, I’ll sell them on Etsy.

Last night I started going through my craft bins and organizing them more so I know what I had and what I needed. And so I will have room for what I will be buying since I don’t have too much room for stuff.

I’m going to also try to make some steam punk inspired items too, which should be fun. Now only to find some watches and clocks to take apart for it. XD

I’ll post pictures of whatever I make so keep checking in once in awhile.
