A-Z Challenge: Crafts

One of the things I’m really looking forward to now that I don’t have to worry about working is getting back to crafting. I love doing creative things. It amazes me every time I make something.

Last Christmas I made a bunch of these stocking boards for extra Christmas money. Hooks would be attached to the bottom to hang stockings. I may make them again in Japan since the homes there don’t have fireplaces to hang stockings on.

I love embroidering. Its something quiet and peaceful. I just wish my cats would quit stealing my string so I can finish this piece. Its suppose to be a pillowcase with embroidery going down one side.

This is my favorite piece. This is a mermaid bra. I saw online that some people make these for cosplay. I figured I could try making one too. I will probably try to sell this once I’m done. Its made with seed beads and fake pearls. Since the wedding I have started beading it again. It is taking forever because I’m trying to make sure the beads are secure before moving on to the next one. I would hate for a string to pop and lose half the bra. I will post more pictures as I finish it.

This is a painting I made at my bachelor party. It was one of those wine and paint parties. It was so much fun. I definitely want to do it again before we go to Japan.

  1. I love your crafts, especially the embroidering and the painting. 🙂 Too bad we don’t live closer or we could make stuff together. I have a whole shelf of craft supplies but I haven’t had the time to actually make anything.

    1. If the Marine Corps had been kind we would have gotten Pendleton. Then me and you could have actually hung out once in a while. You’re creative. Maybe you should make web themes for me to use . 😉
