Craft time again!

I really don't know how I am able to make pretty things for myself and the people I love. I suppose I have my sweet husband to thank for that because if it was just Andrew and I, I would seriously get nothing done but clean up food off the floor, wash clothes, watch Elmo, and play one of the million varieties of ball games he enjoys.

But... since God has blessed me with a fantastic husband....


Aren't they just the cutest things ever? I like to cross stitch and I adore cute snowmen so these were a perfect craft to work on.

I also made this for a special someone with the patterns out of an old tole painting magazine I got from my Grandma Wilkey.

Not bad for a first try. It's a pretty big box too. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I just bought a cardboard box at the craft store and painted it with acrylic paint and sealed it with clear acrylic spray.

Moving on... My next post will be a tutorial of a craft that was inspired by this....

I know the suspense is going to eat at you until then!

If you  would like more info on the crafts you've seen above or in my previous post please let me hear about it. Leave a comment!

  1. Those snowmen are super cute! I like having snow inspired decoration for Christmas too, particularly snowmen. It reminds me of when I used to have white Christmas' in New Hampshire.

    I like to cross-stitch too and lately have been looking for some with forest animals. Nothing too cutesy but maybe silhouettes. Let me know if you come across anything like that.

    Looking forward to the tutorial! :)
