National Craft Month - Day 30

National Craft Month 2016 is over. (◕︵◕✿) I can't believe I made it. I knew I wasn't going to be able to craft as much as I wanted for this month because of projects I'm working on, but I really did want to share some sort of tutorial with you all for each day, and I did. Go me! February basically sucked when it came to meeting my goals for the month. Yeah, there were a couple of days this month I missed because I unplugged and didn't prepare for it, but I made up for those. March monthly goals? ✔ Done.(◕ᴗ◕✿)

The last National Craft Month video I'll be sharing with you is a tasty one...or so it seems. It's definitely a project to take on in the kitchen. Especially for those with a sweet tooth. The video is from Cupcakes Cookies and Cardio and it teaches you how to make a Coca-Cola shaped cake. The recipe for the cake itself includes Coke, but I think this can work with any flavored cake. The trick is getting a cake that isn't so soft you won't be able to transfer inside to your chocolate soda bottle. not sure what I mean? Check out the video:

National Craft Month - Day 30


Shoes. Love them. Basically all kinds. Mostly Chris Donovan, Irregular Choice kind. Chris Donovan might be described as artistic but Irregular Choice might be described as something else. It's been a thing with me. I remember in high school I was at the shoe store with my mom who was going to buy me a pair for school. I fell in love with some shoes and she just had a face: 'You like THOSE?' "Yeah. They're so ugly, they're cute." And those kind of weird, "ugly" shoes are the ones I like. (^ᗨ^✿) But I also like "normal" pretty ones sometimes. I like bling. I have a pair of clear "stripper" heels. I just love shoes. I'm just more drawn to those that aren't..."normal" looking. (Although, to be honest...different is what I love.)

Anyway, YouTube recommended a DIY Cinderella glass slipper video. I'm not really much Cinderella anything, but her heels were awesome so I decided to give it a look. So cute. I need to show my sister because I'm sure she will hunt down that tape and find everything else to make a pair for herself. I like the video because of the effect the tape gives the shoes. Other Cinderella shoes I've seen are just blinged out making them look like diamond shoes not glass, so NOT Cinderella shoes.

National Craft Month - Day 29

I mostly work with polymer clay but I have also worked with resin to make small items like jewelry. I know some cosplayers use resin to make props but that's at some serious skill level that I'm not even going to try. (◠ᴗ◕✿) I hadn't thought of making other types of large items with resin until today's video.

CraftKlatch is a channel I've shared videos from before and today's video deserves to be shared too. It's mixed media, it's resin, it's lighted, and it's mermaid. How could I NOT share? Mermaids? (^ᗨ^✿)

National Craft Month - Day 27 & 28
National Craft Month - ThatNewMommy

Hope you had a fun Easter! My king and I went to our usual Sunday breakfast with his dad who had the day off. We gave him his Easter basket there and he flipped. He had been counting down the days to Easter wanting to do an egg hunt (he saw me buy the eggs) but I don't think he expected an Easter basket. He flipped not so much for the basket but because inside it had a Thomas Rollers 3 pack and some M&Ms. It also had a bag of Thomas Minis which made him flip again. (^ᗨ^✿)

We went home were he found a giant Easter egg I made out of a balloon and newspaper. THAT he really didn't expect and he absolutely loved.  Especially since it had more Thomas Minis hiding inside. After his aunt and cousin arrived, we went down to the park and had our Easter egg hunt. It had rained earlier in the morning but the sun was out. At least long enough for the kids to find their eggs. As we were sitting opening them to see their goodies, a heavy rain started to fall. We ran for the one of the baseball dugouts but by the time we got there, it stopped raining. We decided to just head on home to play and grill some burgers and hot dogs for lunch. My king fell asleep as soon as they left a few hours later. He had a great time. That means I was happy. (◠ᴗ◠✿)

Anyway, that is why today I will be sharing two videos. One for National Craft Month Day 27 and the other for Day 28. I love making fun stuff for my king and I love it even more when he joins in on the fun. These two videos are something you and your little one can do using cardboard boxes. The tutorials are fun to watch and it seems like a fun process. They're from Box Yourself which is a channel dedicated to just that: boxes.

National Craft Month - Day 26

Okay, so I know I said I was done with the notebook tutorials, but technically this isn't one of those...kind of. This is a shopping list cover similar to the notepad tutorial I shared earlier.

This lyriclover810 video is definitely something I want to try out later on because I am always carrying some sort of list. The top of the pad usually gets crumpled as I'm shoving it in and out of my bag so I think this would help. Plus, I think I can make it cute.

I've already done some shopping and I couldn't find any paper I like for the notepad cover, but I found some folders that were nice enough to work. You know, pretty enough to look nice if it comes out right, but not so pretty that I'd be upset if it doesn't come out right. (◠ᴗ◕✿)
