Permanent(?) Hiatus

Apologies to anyone who was following this blog. I very likely won't be updating it anymore. Nothing bad has happened, I've just lost interest. Sorry again.

Sorry it took so long everybody. I almost forgot to finish it! 
Hope it looks sunrise-ey enough!

Craft: Mod Podge Bangle Bracelet

I think I owe a huge apology to all of my frequent readers for making them wait so long between posts. So sorry everyone! I'll try to be less sporadic, but I can't promise! 

So today I have a cute little craft made from old magazines. Yup. You know all those old magazines and catalogues that you've kept for who knows how long on the off-chance you will eventually want to read them again? This is the day you cut them into tiny little pieces of pretty, pretty paper and glue it to a piece of wood and call it art! 

Hahahahahahahahhahaha-no really.

Unfortunately I can't claim this idea. It belongs to Alli, of One Pearl Button. You can click the link to visit her original project, where she gives a beautiful tutorial as well.

The best part about this is when somebody asks how you spent your free time this weekend, you can tell them that you spent it gluing pieces of dead trees to other dead trees! (Using glue, which coincidentally used to be made of dead horses. Boy do we love making pretty things out of dead things!) 

Ignore me, I'm odd.

Night everyone!

First Day of College

So yesterday was my first day of college. Yikes. When did this happen? On top of that, my birthday is on the 28th! Whaaaaaa? Did I miss something important? When did I "officially" become an adult? I'm so confused right now. 

Here's something awesome from the awesome Clare of Sisters Grimm!

The priest of our little parish used to say, "Are you going to be the first saint from [...this town]? Are we someday going to be celebrating your feast day?" He reminded us every Sunday that we are all called to be saints.
Father M. has moved away now, and the new priest Father W. is no less awesome, but I will never forget that stunningly simple thought. 
Will you be saint YOUR NAME HERE of YOUR TOWN HERE?
Silly sounding, yes, but amazing all the same.
Will you?

Final Craft Compilation

Final fair post.  I've assembled the rest of my fair crafts here.
 Some I may have already posted in the past, but here they are anyway.

First off, a wallet made of felt scraps and liquid stitch.

Four digital art pieces.

A large 2x3 foot acrylic painting.

A book page bracelet based off the Chronicles of Narnia.

And my baby "Sock-tapus"

So that's everything. Hope you've all enjoyed them! 

Last note: I'm planning on making another book page bracelet to sell in my Etsy shop, so keep an eye out for it!
