Really Crafty Link Party with Mikaya and Samantha

Thanks to Keeping It Real¬†for always having such great, really crafty parties! Today, I’m partying with Mikaya (age 13) and Samantha (age 2). Mikaya asked for pink, white, and black Hello Kitty letters to hang in her room. I used 9″ wood letters, Hello Kitty ribbon and embellishments, up-cycled pink and black tulle, and tons of love!

Samantha’s Grandma and Mom asked for ladybugs and bright, bold colors. I used red polka dot ribbon, ladybug embellishments, yellow, green, and red paper and card stock, all assembled in a re-purposed black frame.

Both pieces were delivered yesterday to happy, smiling customers!

Busy Bees for Deserving Teachers

Busy bees and busy hands are at work today for a Teacher Appreciation event coming up next week. I will be presenting the divisions of my business, Shanti Mom For One: Author, Artist, Educator.

Thank you to Keeping it Real and her Really Crafty Link Party for allowing me to share my progress. These will be clothes pin magnets for teachers to use in their classroom. The attached note will say:

“Thanks for bee-ing you!”

I went through a couple of failures before ending up with the right combination of pieces, colors, and materials. These are made with:

  • clothes pins
  • black paint
  • black pipe cleaners
  • yellow puff balls
  • yellow and glittered black felt
  • googly eyes
  • yellow and white striped straws

Still 6 bees to make and then they will all be attached to the clothes pins and magnets. Just a small token of appreciation and an example of my mixed media art work done through Oh BaBee! Originals.
