Here are a few of the projects I have been working on.
Both of these ideas came from Ashley Ann’s blog.
It is one of my favorites.
You should definitely check it out.
Ashley made one of these for her husband when they were remodeling their kitchen. I adapted the idea to give as Christmas gifts. Each bottle in the caddy had a verse about joy on it.
I also made a few individual bottles to give out as gifts. A candy caddy would be great gift for so many things. You can find the directions here.
Clothes Pin Magnets
This was the best part. My sweet husband helped me glue on the magnets so that I wouldn’t have to inhale all the fumes. That was really nice of him because he HATES crafts. Apparently the magnets I bought were a little too strong because they kept all sticking together while he was trying to glue them on. I tried to help, but I think I made things worse. So, I just stood back and laughed as he yelled at the magnets. I am sure he really appreciated that!
I was going to stamp on the cardboard (like Ashley did), but couldn’t find my alphabet stamps. So, I just printed off the same label I used on the candy caddy. Another cheap and easy Christmas gift! You can find the directions for the clothes pin magnets here.
Oh, and I made some little clothes pins too. I used these ones to hang up all my Christmas cards.
I had a few questions about some of the other projects from our craft retreat.
You can find the directions for the photo tile coasters here.
And most of the girls were using blurb for their blog books. I have never made one, but it is on my list of things to try!
