I've been doing several types of crafting recently, and it truly makes me happy. It doesn't matter what I'm creating or making, but what does matter is that I AM creating and making. It's my happy place!
I want to make this style of shirt for myself (the polka-dotted shirt, view A on the right).
I almost never make things for myself! I'm sure that's common among crafters. It says, "Easy to Sew," but I'm not counting on that. I know the sleeves will be a challenge, but as soon as my new fabric comes in, I'm going to give it a shot!
I purchased a UV Resin kit recently. I don't have the techniques perfected yet, but I'm definitely practicing. I am trying to "dome" keyrings and use molds for earrings and necklaces. It's so much fun!
One thing I have become pretty good at is cutting faux leather and making earrings. Here are some of them.

It's so much fun! My first love is scrapbooking, though I haven't spent much time with that. However, I did make a few cards, and that's almost like a mini scrapbook page.

I'm planning my next batch of cards right now. I'll post when completed. Thanks for hanging around with me today! Here's a few funnies before you go...
Have a happy week! Don't forget to visit Stacy Uncorked and Comedy Plus for more Tuesday fun, and feel free to visit my Etsy shop or pass the information on to someone else who might like to look. I really need some feedback. Thanks and have a great week!
