oh i have been a bad blogger.
i have the late winter/early spring blahs.
can't wait to get out of my house and start on my garden.
I have plans to put in a micro prairie in my backyard. It'll be 4 foot by 4 foot. So when i say micro i mean.. teeny teeny tiny.
i havn't been making much lately. But i have done some craft shopping, thanks to some birthday cash that was sent my way.
So i have lots to work with.
this is my first tutorial thursday, and i have two tutorials to direct you guys towards.
over this way http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/08/14/bake-me-a-cake/ is a sweet free crochet cupcake pattern. It looks so yummy!
and here we have some breathtaking felt poppy directions http://wishingelephant.blogspot.com/2011/02/felt-poppy-flower-tutorial.html i want to whip up some of these for fascinators. Gotta buy some pretty felt.
and a bonus third tutorial, because i got distracted, wandered off and found something awesome. HOMEMADE GLIMMER MIST! honestly, WOOT! i love glitter and glimmer and gleam. and glimmer mist ain't cheap, and i am all about crafting on a budget, (but only because i have not won the lottery yet) and i love diy. http://estherscardcreations.blogspot.com/2011/03/homemade-glimmer-mist.html
I will be making a cupcake this weekend, and trying out the felt poppy as soon as i can get my hands on some nice felt. but i've got everything i need to attempt the glimmer mist so i'm running off to try it out right noW! i will post pictures of my results!
