UPDATE: These kits are currently sold out. I am trying to obtain what I need to make a few more. If you would like to reserve one, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's been a busy weekend of crafting around my house. Didn't get a chance to get out for any Memorial Day festivities, but we did barbecue twice - in between all my crafting, of course. Friday night I stayed up late to finish my Beautiful Baby card for Saturday's Our Creative Corner challenge and then Saturday was spent creating my desk art piece for the "Your Favorite Stamp" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
I had been waiting for orders of beads and metals to come in and the beads and one order of metal were here by Saturday. So I spent Saturday evening and all day Sunday building stick pins. Whew, I was awash in beads, but so beautiful and lots of fun to play with. I got them all loaded onto the Etsy site by Sunday night and also put a MicroMetals set on - very tiny pieces for embellishing your paper art.
Today, I finished up making some vintage style neutrals kits. I had worked on the shabby flowers a week or so ago, but just had not had time to pull the kits together. Today I did some hand dying of laces, cut the burlap and made the tags. And just about 30 minutes ago, I listed these kits in my Etsy shop. This kit turned out positively yummy. If I didn't already have everything I think I would be compelled by my love of vintage to buy one - LOL!
Check out the stick pins too - soooo pretty. I made them up in three different qualities - one set very inexpensive (sorry, temporarily sold out) for types of paper crafts that will have a short life, one nicer quality and one type that's very good quality. I think either of the two better quality pins could also be used as jewelry items. If you used them on a card, your recipient could then use it as a piece of jewelry - how fun is that?
