Share Something You've Made!

Hello crafters and happy Wednesday!

Today I'd like to do something a little different. Instead of me showing you something I've made, I want you to show me something you've made! It can be anything, a drawing, a papercraft, a sculpture, anything! :) So, please show me some of your arts and crafts! I'm waiting.... ;)

May your day be crafty,

A Little Something I've Been Working On

Hey craft creators!

I'd like to show you a little picture that I've been working on. It's not even close to being done, but I thought I'd show you the WIP (work in progress). :) My scanner wouldn't fit the whole picture in, but you get the gist of it. The picture is below!

Cheshire Cat WIP

Tell me in the comments If you know who the character is, I'm sure most of you will know him. ;)

May your day be crafty,

A Present For My Mom

Hello all you crafty people out there!

A couple of weeks ago, I really wanted to make my mom something special. After I thought for a while, I decided I wanted to paint her something from the heart! I really love how beautiful Japanese kanji is, so I painted her the Japanese kanji for Love, Courage, and Family. The pictures are below! Just click the links!

Japanese Family This one means family, and I used a blue background to signify peace.

Japanese Courage This one means courage, and I used an orange background to signify fierce courage.

Japanese Love This last one means love, and I used a red background to signify love. To tell you the truth this one is my favorite. :)

May your day be crafty,

Pretty Little Paper Parrot

Hello Craft Lovers!

I thought I would start you off with something simple. A paper craft! :) This is a paper craft that I made when my little sister was home-schooling. She had to create a bird out of paper and I really wanted to join in. So, she made our African Grey parrot (Buckeye) and I made my Sun Conure parrot (Blaze). I'm actually not sure where she put hers, but I was able to find mine and take pictures of it. :D So, without further ado pictures of a paper parrot! (Just click the links to get to the pictures!)

Paper Sun Conure 3 - I think Blaze might have gained a little weight since I made this! ;)

Paper Sun Conure - Sun Conures have white/gray patches of skin around their eyes. Blaze likes the patches around his eyes scratched. :)

Paper Sun Conure 2 - These are the actual letters on his leg band. I love to be accurate!

Blaze the Sun Conure! :D - This is a picture of the real Blaze! :D

Well, I hope you enjoyed this craft and I would love to see some of you do your own paper craft! It doesn't have to be a bird, it can be anything you can imagine! A dog, a car, a tree, it doesn't matter! Let your imagination soar!

May your day be crafty,
