I really like to craft, unfortunately I do not have as much time as I would like to do it. With a slight addiction to Pinterest that I can guess that many of you may have as well, it gives me lots of inspiration. I was just saying to my daughter the other night, if they had Pinterest and You Tube tutorial videos years ago I would have tried and attempted so much more. I think it’s wonderful how these sources have inspired us and given us the confidence we would not have had just reading it in print form. This year I made a lot of salt dough ornaments. What I did was make enough so that they kids would have their own advent tree that they would hang the handmade ornaments on each night. I wrapped them all and then pasted numbers on the packages. It was really nice that I got to make the ornaments with them. I also made Christmas tree salt dough ornaments with the fingerprints of all 7 of us. I then made some adorable and keepsake hand-print salt dough ornaments for the little guys. Helping me with my crafting this year was Elmer’s.
Elmer’s sent me a spectacular Craft It kit full of $150 of their great products. I mainly used the Paint Pens to embellish the salt dough ornaments and other crafts like the coasters and the glass Christmas ball ornaments. The paint pens are super easy to use and come in different point size tips so you can use fine when writing and for detail work and larger sizes for other paint crafts. My next project to use them for are river rocks. I have collected an entire huge bucket of river rocks and plan to apint them and of course I will show you the results.
The X-ACTO products I plan to try by first using them to cover some wood letters for the kid’s playroom. I also want to do some type of door decoration with scrapbook paper and wood hearts for Valentine’s Day. The next big project I want to try is cutting fabric to cover some kid’s chairs and decoupaging it. I have seen this done and it is gorgeous and the X-ACTO products will come in so handy for cutting the fabric pieces.
