Buy a Craft, Feed a Baby.

 

2018 In Review – Dr. Seuss Style

 

Did you hear about the one thousand and ten dollars we raised?
We donated it to a Health Foundation that helps out newborn babes.


You see, the foundation runs a Mother’s Milk Bank.
For all the work they do for kids, they deserve a giant thank.
So many babies face illness or are premature, needing a mother’s milk to thrive.
Thankfully, selfless mothers willing to donate to the bank so often arrive.

We couldn’t have raised these funds without you.
And by you, of course, we mean you, you and, yes, you.

Abigail, Adam and Adeline, thank you for your purchase.
We hope you enjoy your felt world map, Andreas.


Bronx and Boston bought theirs together, and, wow, they sound tough.
Bradbury, for your purchase, we just can’t thank you enough.
We sold items to Chelsea, Charlaine and Christine.
And, of course, we can’t forget the one-and-only Dominique.
Thanks to everyone who shopped in their own special way.
Here’s looking at you, Emma, Ethan and Faye.
Thank you so much, Hayley, Jacky, Karyn and Lorena.
Can you believe we have customers from Salt Lake City to Valencia?
We really love your style, especially you Maria.
Before we forget, same to you Natalya, Oliver and Pia.
We can hardly believe the generous hearts of Rita and Sukee.
You’re definitely the best, Tracy, Vanessa and Whitney.
Yaro and Zsuzsanna, you made such a difference for children.
And to any buyer we didn’t mention:

Thank you, thank you, thank you a million.


Written by my friend Jaime, thanks man!

All the Felt Walls! And a Dino-Sized Celebration!

Dinosaur Felt Wall Gift - Party Supply

You guys! This dinosaur wall was my 1,500th sale!! 1,500 of you have bought from my shop. We’ve helped feed lots of babies with that $. I love you all!


My sister talked me into a craft fair last week. I compiled a list of all the felt walls for the show, and it was rewarding to see how years of work have led to so many fun felt walls. I keep thinking my babies will get sick of them, but they haven’t yet! Every day, my 4-year-old asks ‘what kind of felt wall haven’t we made yet?’ Follow us on FB or insta see what we create next.

Resin Art: Antelope Island in a 3d Topographical Land Sculpture

The youtube vortex sucked me in, and I ended up watching this video:

And, like always, I thought, “I NEED to try this!” So I did. First attempt = disaster. But I learned SO much. Only use a little bit of paint in the resin. Background colors can show up. Extremely level/flat is insanely important in the drying process. Work fast. If the first (or second or third) layer looks terrible, you can pour additional resin coats on top.

I decided to experiment and combine paper maché with resin. Sometimes the stars align, and mixed media projects come together nicely. This was one of those times!

I ended up with a 3d topographical map of Antelope Island in Utah. I shipped it off to my pops for father’s day. He recognized Frary Peak right away. 🙂

And now I can add 3d land-form sculptures to my resume. Which island should I do next?

Airport Bathroom + 3-Year-Old. How Things Usually Go.

As anyone who has potty trained knows, public restrooms are worse than the political bickering in my facebook feed right now. But somehow, in the LAX airport restroom, my 3-year-old had me (and everyone else in the bathroom) in tears laughing.

It happened here:

Have you ever wanted a pair of leggings with a baby sloth on them? Me neither.

But I’m gonna leave this here anyway. You know, just in case there is someone out there who does.

Free LDS Printable on Judging Harshly.

My sister asked me to make a little handout for a church class she teaches. Since I love sharing all of my creations, I’m giving away this LDS printable quote for FREE!

The point is, we simply cannot call ourselves Christian and continue to judge one another—or ourselves—so harshly.

Patricia T. Holland

I love that she says “so harshly” instead of just “stop judging.” I think that’s an important distinction. We have to judge things and people to be able to make decisions and move forward in our lives.
