$1 Store Socks...

....equal one cute monkey!

One pair of socks = one monkey.


A hand painted mug, made in japan. A nice bag which contained, assorted Linen for Cross Stitch, An Asian themed Cross stitch kit (good fortune), four oak leaf coasters, two skeins of chenille yarn, a sampler chart and a spool of red floral wire.
I Also found a black straw purse that has seen better days, which I took apart to reuse the handles and the lining.

More to come on the cardboard doll house.

Doll house in progress

Myra wanted a doll house for the Build a Bear Workshop Rabbit she got at McDonald's. I am using the box the bottom half of my new bathroom sink came in to build her a house.

After I finish covering all the cut edges I am going to papier mach'e the whole thing before painting it.

Do you believe in Magic?

I came across some instructions for making your own magic wand. I had to try it.
A sheet of paper, glue, hot glue, and paint are all I used.

Directions for making wand found here:


There are quite a few neat kids crafts here.

Unexpected Break

I was really ready for the kids to get back to school and get busy with all my projects. Summer is almost over and I still have not finished my quilt that I started eleven years ago. It was a goal I set myself for the summer. But I have not been doing much the last four weeks due to a migraine headache that refused to go away. I do pretty good as long as I don't move my head around a bunch and stay in out of the heat outside. So I have been reading.

What did I read?
The Belgariad, Vol. 1 & Vol 2. by David Eddings

Several different Greek Mythology books. (short stories)

The Doll People by Ann M. M. Martin. (Junior fiction, but fun)

Rowan of Rin by Emily Rhoda (books 1-4), Keeping up with what my 11 year old is reading.

I hope to be back to crafting soon.

More Felt Food

I made tiny pie and cake slices.
Lemon pie, and white cake with strawberry frosting.

Tiny sushi.

I also had a fortune cookie about the same size but forgot to take a picture of it

White cake.

The tiny ones will be magnets for the refrigerator.
