{just being crafty!}

I found this amazing tutorial (click on that link if you want to learn!) a few months ago on making scrabble tile pendants. I had a few of the supplies, but I had to wait until I found a box of Scrabble at the thrift store! I finally found a box for $1.99! After putting it off for a few days, I went ahead and gave it a shot to see how it would turn out.
I had Diamond Glaze from a previous *cough* attempt at another jewelry craft, and I couldn't figure out how to do it after I put $$ into buying all the supplies. {{does that ever happen to you?!}} But, the newest supply item that I need to find now is the 3D Crystal Lacquer to use instead of Diamond Glaze. I guess that's an online order only. Darn! I had a hard time getting bubbles out of the glaze, but oh well, we've got to start somewhere, right?!
Check out my latest pendants. Need to find some more paper that has little designs on it...
(as well as something not PINK!)
LOVE picnik.com!! Made this picture "POP!"

Sadly, this picture I didn't edit on picnik.com, so it doesn't "pop" as much, but you get the idea that it's a scrabble tile that I used (and one of the letters that we never use! Q!)!

OK, on to my next craft... which was a baby blanket. I like to use a yard of some cutesy material with a yard of flannel. I just flip right side of cutesy fabric facing w/ the flannel, sew, leaving about 4-6 inches (maybe not that much) so I can pull it right side out, then hand stitch (which leaves me groaning b/c I'm not a good hand stitcher!). Then I top it off w/ a zigzag stitch around the edges. Not too bad! I made this for a friend in our ward (or was a part of our ward).


  1. Wow you are on a crafting roll! I love the pendants that you made. They are so cute!

  2. I love it all, especially those scrabble tiles. WAAAAY cute! You could sell those, and I would buy one!

  3. SO cute! I wish I had more time to craft. Hey, come to Vegas any time & have frozen hot chocolate with me, Amy!!! :D

  4. Love to see the crafting! Sometimes you can find the 3D Lacquer at scrapbook stores in the adhesive aisle. Keep up the cute work!

  5. wow! I love it! Amy you are so crafty!

  6. I am still bummed we never figured out that first project! I have all my supplies just sitting around. I think I'll let the kids make fridge magnets out of the glass or something!

    I love the pendants and the blanket!! You rock!

  7. Very cute, even in Pink. (One of my favorite colors.)
