I will be taking a two week blogging break from today as I will be busy with family and Christmas and eating peanut butter balls for the next two weeks. Obviously if something major happens, I will keep you posted!
See you all in 2014!
|I drew some fruit!|
|Painting to be finished next Monday.|
|Post chocolate! Yum!|
|I had too much melted chocolate so I mixed up some more peanut butter + rice krispies, put it in the bottom of the muffin cups, and poured the chocolate on top. I'm sure they will be delicious too.|
|To be used only with tiny cups.|
|So many paper hearts!|
|My test attempt. Not too bad but the clock part was wide so the book wouldn't close|
(Mom got this version for the school library).
|The book pre-crafting.|
|I use an exacto knife to cut a hole in the pages. Used modpodge to glue all the pages together once the clock fit comfortably and covered the damage with some parts of a page. After I punched a hole in the cover with a pen for the clock bits to fit, I duct taped the clock to the back of the book and stuck the hands back on. The cover was a bit thick so the hands initially had trouble moving but I after I bent them upward slightly, they worked.|
|Cover the mess in the front with a nice circle of text and Voila! One book-clock ready for any book lover.|
|Step 1: Gather paper to use|
|Step 2: Cut out 4 identical symmetrical shapes (I cut out one and used it as a template for the other 3)|
|Step 3: Fold all in half and then glue together so the white sides match together evenly. it turns into a stack until the last one which glues to the side of the first to make it 3D.|
|Step 4: Poke a hole in the top with a needle, thread some string through and voila! A ornament that won't make your tree fall over.|
|A circular version.|
|There is now glitter all over the apartment!|
|My 'wild Christmas' themed cards.|
|And of course, making envelopes. Sometimes I think that is my favorite part.|
|Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are better than sugary candy right?? Right.|
|Our Christmas tree! I may have driven Isaiah crazy with my singing while hanging the ornaments.|
