More wedding crafts!!

Since we decided to move our wedding to the evening, I realized that no evening wedding is complete without a bunch of little twinkly tealights!

I had about 3 pounds of soy wax and a little under a pound of beeswax, so I did four colors: a beautiful light sage, a rich coppery peach (which cools lighter than the ones in the photo, which had just been poured), a soft cool tan, and i left the beeswax their natural color, which was a lovely off-white.

There's a little under 100 overall, and i bet we use most of them!! At least half, if not. I have been collecting these great used glass tealight holders for the table tops for months now, and I'm pretty sure i've got the effect I'm going for now! Yay!


Ribbon belt for Mom

Ribbon belt for Mom - My mom found this really pretty light peach colored dress to wear to my wedding, and after looking for a belt to wear with it for a while and finding nothing but heavy looking leather belts and 60 dollar wastes of money, I volunteered to make her a belt. I think it looks perfect!! It's got some shine and some glitz, and makes the thing look pretty nifty.

How very convenient that I had a peach shirt on to model with it, huh? All in all, I love it, and today I must find the same yarn in different colors for one for myself. Mmm, yarn :X

Pretty project for new apartment

Pretty project for new apartment - I've been at the new apartment since Sunday, and though I'm so excited to be here and that i've already gotten to see a few of my friends, there's precious little to do while i'm hanging out in my furniture-less rooms. Luckily, I'm always smart enough to bring a few fun projects with me, since I know I have a minor problem with the ability to sit in one place with nothing to do for an extended amount of time.

I've started one of my projects for the apartment that I'm really excited about, for some reason. I picked up 6 4x6" canvas boards last week, and a selection of acrylic paints in varying greens, beiges, and brown. I also picked up a texturizing medium for acrylics, which is essentially a clear paint with fine grit in it, which I'm totally loving.

Now here's the part I'm strangely excited about. I picked up two laser cut stencils with rather intricate repeating patterns, as well as some plaster. Now i'm not sure how well this is actually going to work, because i've never tried it before, but I'm going to mix paint with plaster, apply it to the stencils, and then depending on how distorted the colors are by the addition of plaster, paint over the raised design tops with the colors they are supposed to be representing.

The "Things I Should Make" List

I find that if I forget to write down an idea for a craft project, or if i forget to keep track of which ones I need to do, I tend to put them away and forget, or completely forget about them all together. That's the problem with enjoying several kinds of crafts, instead of just focusing on one type. However, this little list is here to help me start keeping myself more accountable. I'll post all my final projects on Craft Chic when they're ready to come off the Work In Progress list.
