Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory
Thursday, June 3, 2010
This is one of those wonderful ideas you find in the blog-o-sphere and just absolutely fall in love with....I found this idea on The Crafty Crow. It was a Mother's Day gift idea. And it is so easy and so simple and so fabulous. You MUST try this!! And of course, it is a cool present for anytime. We made three for each kid, one for the Mamas and two for the two grandmas.
Kids always love playing with dough of any sort. So the rolling and squeezing was good for their little hands and little brains. ANd they loved pressing their fingers or thumbs down into the clay. In fact we did that VERY often.
Lots of smiles and talk about making them for their mamas (yes, one of those mamas was me) and grandmas.
Here's all three of Lukey's pendants before baking:
And here's the excitement after they came out of the oven and were strung on some hemp twine:
Peelu, of course, had to combine colors and be different. I forgot to take a picture of the back, but I lightly carved their initial and wrote the date.
Really, you must try them. I forget how awesome baking clay is. Off to have the big kids make some too to send to their grandma back East.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
