DIY Lace Earrings

I admit it I have a fabric/craft store obsession. On a typical trip to one I usually end up purchasing items I am attracted to with no intended purpose for them. On my last trip this lace drew me in and I had to make something with it.

These are so simple to make.  First cut two pieces from the lace. Press flat with an iron
Next place lace on the shiny side of freezer paper (foil would work too.) and with your fingers spread a good amount of fabric stiffener on to lace, make sure to turn over so they are fully saturated.

Let dry completely, then simply poke a hole through the top of the lace and add an earring finding!

                              Happy Crafting!!

Very Pineresting!

Most of  my friends and I are addicted to Pinterest.  We are so obsessed that we are having a Pinterest Party at the beginning of March.
We created a community board called "Pinterest Party". We then started posting crafts and food that we would like to make.  We are going to choose some projects then get together at our friend Mary's beautiful home, and get crafty.  There will be wine involved!  See our Party board here. What projects do you think we should attempt.  Pictures to follow...

I've Been on a Crochet Binge

So, my last few videos have been about Felted Crochet projects, I seem to be on a crochet binge. I find myself crocheting a lot in the winter time because, I love to cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and stitch away. I have a few more Felted Crochet Videos on the way, and then I promise I will branch out again. Here are my latest videos all Crochet and Felting.

Give the Gift of Life

It will be 6 years in February that I lost my youngest son and four of his close friends in an alchohol related automobile accident. I am VERY passionate about stopping drinking and driving. I came up with an important gift I hope will save lives.
