Yesterday at work we decided we needed Halloween gifts for the infants (I work at a daycare center). Silly me had to open my mouth and say “I’ll just make them something.” When I don’t really have the time to make them something! Anyway, I decided on stuffed spiders. So I was up late last night cutting, sewing, and turning those orange legs. Tonight I’ll have to stuff them and close ‘em up. Why couldn’t I think of something that was square? I’ve never sewn a complete circle before last night! I’ll mark it down as good practice! So here they are. What did you make for Halloween? Happy Halloween!
Spiders before stuffing.
I managed to get one completely finished.

Wanna Play Cards?

Or maybe you wanna crafts with cards. Who knew a simple deck of cards could be so crafty? Here are a few ideas I found in my search.
They'd of course make wonderful scrapbook page embellishments and the decoupaging ideas are endless too! You aren't limited to playing cards either. How about using some Pokemon cards for the boys or Bella Sara cards for the girls. I'd love to hear your ideas too.

Crafty Me

Hello everyone! My name is Renee and I'm a craftaholic. My passion is sewing and quilting (although, I'm just a beginner) but I am a lover of most crafts. My intent for this blog is to share my craft enthusiasm by pointing you in the right direction for all things crafty. If there's something you would like me to research for you just give me a hollar in the comments of any blog post. To start the show let me show you my first ever quilt top that's almost complete.
