Recent creations: Woodland Animal Swap

I know I haven’t posted very much recently. Between the holidays and some other things going on, I haven’t had much time to blog or make much. But I have done a few swaps for the Waldorf groups I belong to. This little brown bear, tree, and forest floor mat set (with bear poem) were … Continue reading

Epiphany or Three Kings’ Day

Epiphany or Three Kings’ Day

This post is long overdue! The little one and I had a lovely time celebrating Epiphany this year. In December, I participated in a Three Kings’ Day swap in one of the Waldorf groups I belong to. I made “gifts” (things to represent the presents the Wise Men brought; pictured below) and in return, received … Continue reading

Handmade Beeswax Ornaments

Handmade Beeswax Ornaments

I had the happy good fortune to have my mom stay with us a couple days the beginning of this week. G loved having his Nana here, too. My mom is a super crafty, artsy person (apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, eh?) and happens to own some gorgeous clay molds. Originally they were … Continue reading

Winter Nature Table

Winter Nature Table

I recently did a really fun swap with a Waldorf group I belong to on Facebook. The theme was “Winter Nature Table,” which was perfect because I am just getting into doing a nature table (or windowsill, in our case, since space is at a premium in our tiny house). Each participant made six things– … Continue reading

Advent: Handmade Wooden Ornaments

G and I have been working on some handmade gifts as part of our Advent activities. We picked out some plain wood ornaments at one of our local craft stores that we thought would make great presents. Then I set out the watercolors and G got painting! After the paint dried, he used some of … Continue reading

Felt Owl Ornament

Felt Owl Ornament

I recently finished up a felt owl ornament swap. You were supposed to follow the basic pattern from here, then add your own touches. I opted out of using a button and made felt eyes, plus my rick-rack was a little bigger so I did two rows only. My recipient noted she also loved snowmen … Continue reading

The felt ornaments keep on coming!

The felt ornaments keep on coming!

I am stitching up felt ornaments like a mad woman! I have been able to get so many done because my little guy has 4 hours of preschool/speech therapy a week (it is an integrated program for kids with speech issues), and parents have to wait on-site while the kids are in class. I have … Continue reading

Felt Christmas Ornaments

Felt Christmas Ornaments

I am making good progress on my Christmas ornaments! I want to make a bunch for gifts for Christmas. I made these three recently, plus three other “bauble” shaped ones I still need to photograph. Have you started holiday gift making?

Felt Halloween Ornaments

Felt Halloween Ornaments

I recently made and sent off these felt ornaments for a swap I participated in. The pumpkin and cat are similar to¬†two others I made; then I added in a candy corn ornament and a “Boo!” ornament I designed. They were quick and fun to stitch up.

A Winged Cat Bird Monster

A Winged Cat Bird Monster

I am 100% in love with this latest monster! This is the one for my swap, and as it turns out, the person I have to create for loves birds and cats. I knew I had to make her something similar to my other little one-eyed cat bird monster, but with a little something more: … Continue reading
