I decided to try my hand at jewelry making and came up with this heart pendant. It's dainty and feminine, and totally my style! The birthstones are customizable to represent the birthstones of a couple, and birthstones for children can be added upon request. I used silver wire and Swarovski crystals.

Summer is a great time to take a break from crochet and work on some paper crafts! These card kits available in my Etsy shop provide you with enough pieces to make three handmade cards. You can pick the color scheme and the greeting phrases. Then arrange the pieces any way you want (or look through my pictures for some ideas). Perfect for adding a handmade touch even if you don't have all the supplies or time to start from scratch.

With a change in seasons comes a change in projects. People just aren't interested in crocheted hats when it's warm outside (imagine that). So here is my warm-weather-friendly crochet item: barefoot sandals! Available in my Etsy shop with beads or interchangeable flowers (which attach with high quality KAM snaps). I love wearing them when I take the kids outside for a picnic. They're also really great for little babies that have a hard time keeping shoes on, or are learning to walk and you don't want them slipping. I have a special listing for baby blessings/baptisms/christenings. I love being able to dress up my little baby even if she won't keep shoes on her feet. The best part is that the tie straps are adjustable, so they can grow with kids!

This is a super cute way to decorate a wall, and it's so affordable -- like under $2 affordable! The first time I did this, I just used the side of a cardboard box, and it ended up warping because of the Mod Podge. So this time I used foam core (I got this 20"x30" board for about $1.50). Then you need at least 5 sheets of 12"x12" scrapbooking paper. I used 9 so that I could get more patterns on here (and it made enough squares to cover two of these, since I have two daughters). When I do projects like this, I love to use paper from a paper stack because the colors are already perfectly coordinated. These sheets came from a giant 360-sheet stack, which I got for $10 during a sale at JoAnn's. So each sheet cost a little less than 3 cents. 9 sheets comes to 25 cents, and this is enough to cover two boards. Plus, I made my own Mod Podge: combine 1 part white glue and 1 part water in a clean glass jar with a lid; shake until it is evenly combined, and voila! It cost less than a dollar and I had so much leftover.
|I start in the top corner and lay out the squares, making sure not to have two squares of the same pattern touching. Then I take a picture so I can remember where to put them with the Mod Podge.|
This is a fun, slightly messy way for your child to help you make some cute decor for their room (and get some more exposure to letters). We just used my daughter's first initial, but you could do this for all the letters in their name if you wanted to.
