Short and Sweet


This is going to have to be a short and sweet blog tonight. It has been a particularly stressful week for some reason and I didn't accomplish half of what I set out to. I want to remind everyone about the Christmas in July Shop Hop, make sure you get registered so you will be ready to find those shopping bags first thing!




I put together a little summer fun kit that will be for sale on my website this week. Here's a great rainy day project for the kids. A charm kit with a ribbon necklace and a sweet little plastic heart trinket box. Have fun collecting tiny flowers and leaves and grasses and press them in a phone book. Then on a rainy day, you are all set to make a glamorous one of a kind charm. Each kit comes with two charm trays, two resin drops to seal your creation and two ribbon and cord 16inch necklaces with a lobster claw clasp, one pink and one white.

















It's a fun project and choosing just the right flowers to have pressed and ready to go is another fun project in itself. I have pressed some rose petals and use them as the background for my flowers, I liked the muted velvety look. This is a floret of Queen Anne's Lace with a sprinkling of fairy dust. Oh, okay, it's German glass glitter but I like to pretend!

So that is it for this week, sweet friends. Wasn't as short as I thought! Once I get going it's hard to stop. Have a wonderful week.

Hugs,


Pat

What fun projects these would be to do. Yes it is fun to pretend. It could be anything inside. Your favorite picture of your Mom when she was little etc.
Thanks for the share. Kath'

Pat, I love that kit! I used to love to do crafts as a teen and that would be exactly what I would have loved to have had.

Hope that your week is better.
