Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday! Passover is just one week away, and I'm in the thick of cleaning and preparing, so honestly it's nice to have a little crafty distraction and dream about all the things I'd love to be making right about now instead of scrubbing my house from top to bottom (well, not exactly, the attic will be locked up over Passover and believe me, it's not a pretty sight, and as for the fate of my studio—well there' s still a week left and miracles can happen!) Last week's party was full of great projects, there were so many I would have loved to share, but I do try to keep the features down to ten. So without more rambling, thanks so much for joining me here, and here are last week's picks:
I am so very proud to have Lilla A. as one of my steady contributors! She just can't help herself, everything she does is wonderful! I just love this cardboard castle craft, and do check out the link for the actual mirrored product that inspired her, wow. And for the most creative activity board I've even seen, it's Lilla A. again with this amazing collaboration between her and the handy tool bearing husband. It's just adorable, I want one for myself, — I think we need to learn how to use a router.
And Mich in L.A. is pretty amazing herself, just look at this plastic bread bag closure robot, and check out the perfect keyboard button that she used for the head, with eyebrows and all! Camilla over at family chic always has simply wonderful ideas, including this brilliant one to use curtain rings as decorative tags. Love it!
This bracelet from quirky momma is not only adorable, it's a great example of a mom using her head with great results. It solves the problem of how to keep little girls who love their tiny doll accessories happy, while avoiding a serious choking hazzard to crawling babies! And this batk, amazing right? Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom made it with a melted crayon technique that I sure would love to try sometime soon. I'll be saving all those bits of crayons I come across while cleaning for Passover!
I just love these little make believe grocery store panels that she wears flowers made for her pvc puppet theater (another great project in itself!) and this little pirate sure is adorable in his fleece hat and eyepatch that his mom, sew can do whipped up for him to wear on a daily basis!
And last, but not least from sucre and spice, Brooke made some adorable freezer paper stencil pillows for Passover, and a super cute seder plate that she actually made for April fools with candy elements! Okay, that's it for the features, now it's time once again to see what all our crafty friends from around the world have been up to!
