bottle bottoms

I got inspired a few months ago when I found a project on Etsy where the artist cut the bottoms off of plastic bottles and decoupaged them to make a brooch/pendant/cool piece of art.  So here's my take on it.

I put a little clip on the back to attach the bottoms to a necklace or a pin or a barrette.

Maybe a new hot seller???

the mask.

No way I'm going to let a little illness keep me from baking up some sweet goodness.  My friend Jeremy's 30th birthday was this weekend and he had asked me to make him monkey bread.  Since I have been under the weather the past few days, I decided to purchase a mask and wear it while I cooked so my germs didn't damage the birthday goods.

kinda creepy.

yum yum... my boyfriend's oven needs a deep clean!

resin madness

I decided to play with resin yesterday.  I found a container of buttons that I've had for quite a while sitting around and decided to cast them.  It was my first time to experiment with it so there are definitely a few kinks to be worked out, but this is my result!

the white ones are sprinkles.  yum.

I made the list.

I have been a member of a little website called Cut Out + Keep for about a year now.  It is in essence like a myspace or facebook for crafters where you can create a profile, post projects and how-to's of those projects, and befriend other crafters.  I have posted a few projects there and recently found a list on their site called The Best of 2008.  Well, if you scroll down to #78, there I am giving you instructions on how to make banana lip balm.  Pretty sweet!

check it out.
