You know I love keys charms, locks charms, and anything that I can’t afford. So I tried my hand at making my own key for my first attempt it. I think it looks pretty good. With some more molding, distressing, and paints, I’m sure it will look vintage. Again for my first attempt it looks good.
Awww isn’t it cute? When I first started making this I wasn’t going to make a dragon. I was trying to make a pony. But after looking at it and looking at it I said okay dragon let’s see how cute you’re going to be. When everything said and done I stood back and said, “Aww your cute!!!” It kind of reminds me of my 2 ½ year old.
This was inspired by Ganda Krischa. I really love her work and her tutorials are super easy to follow. If you haven’t seen her work I would highly recommend you check her stuff on http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8BqRNHgCaLtD12xuNuVjlw. I always get inspired each time I see her stuff.
I felt in a love mood so to wrap it all together I made glittery lips ready for some kisses, a love note to put it on and a book of love to keep it all in. Each one is made of polymer clay glazed in triple thick and pinched with an eye pin to adorn any bracelet or charm book. This will be sold a set on my Storenvy.com. Check out my front page for link.
Now I’m a big fan of my little pony however since I’m not very good with clays I think for my first attempt it came out pretty good. I call it my pretty, pretty, unicorn. It made out of white polymer clay, neon pinks, and decorated in pink gems. I was going more Kawaii than an actual my little pony. I can see this hanging on a necklace, bracelet, or book charm.
I made several of these Anne Hathaway White Queen vintage bottle caps. I love the classic look she has so I accented each on with either a red apple or a red gem. Instead of looking like the white queen from Alice in Wonderland she almost has an Adam and Eve kind of feel.
If you guys are looking for a great way to keep your fridge smelling like it should or make it smell better. This is a clever way to reuse what you have and if you don’t have some of these items it won’t break the bank doing it.
This is another coffee bottle cap charm; I can’t seem to stop making them I just love the way they look. I love the rich look of the bronze and gold come together giving it a vintage look. I almost didn’t want to make this as a magnet, I can totally see this charm on a book or even glued on a cover. But after putting on my refrigerator I just couldn’t say no. I will be posting this item on storenvy.com.
Well this is embarrassing, I just get a little pregnant and my entries and projects productivity goes downhill. Goodness I would hate to see all my hard work disappear just because I’m in labor lol. Well rest assured I have been crafting and taking pictures it’s just my morning/evening sickness makes it hard to get on my computer and do what I need to do. Well that and my 2 ½ year old do keep my really busy.
Enough talk on the show and tell.
This was made for one of the ladies at my church. She a little older but I say you’re never too old to feel like a princess.
The frame of the box was made using a basic exploding box – shallow lid by SnapDragon Snippets LLC on Silhouette Cameo. The Princess silhouettes are from princess silhouette by Megan Hardy. Pattern papers are scraps that I had in my stash from some designer paper or other. The purple wirily ribbon with the black flowers was bought at Michal’s in the dollar bin. I added a bit a bling from Recollections Bling on a Roll. It measures 30 in/76.2 cm of dark pink flowers and dots. Top off with a silver bow.
The inside I made a cake toper I did by using a 3d leprechaun hat by SnapDragon Snippets LLC. I decorated in puff paint and ribbon and topped with a real candle. I add framesets for her to add in photos of her family and friends and place it at work or home.
Well I just couldn’t take Etsy. I did it once, I did it twice, and I may do it a third time but not now. For now I am moving on to Storenvy.com. To create a store on Storenvy.com was free; there is no fee to set up a store, and no monthly fee.
Yeah you can say I was all fee out. It’s not as fancy as Etsy and I have to do 100% of the promotions but at least I not getting feed. Now I didn’t just jump into Storenvy.com, I did my homework checked out there reviews, looked at other free services such as BigCartel.com, Shopilly.com, as well as eCrater and some others. I can honestly say that Storenvy had much better reviews, services, and people set up then even Etsy.
I hope I get views and purchase, if I don’t at least I can sleep easier knowing I don’t have to pay for monthly serves coming out of my pocket.
