Craft Month Projects, Cont.

Continuing on with this self imposed project extravaganza, I was able to finish up my cross stitch on March 7 & 8.  Already framed and hung. 

Val had heart shaped boxes filled with black & white M&M's as wedding favours and I snagged two from our table that night.  I made a St. Pat's Day altered art box on March 9.  Green & gold glitter inside with Irish castle pic.  It's stacked on foam tape to make it more 3D.

Glued the cover on, added the shamrocks and rhinestones.

And some ribbon on the side.

March 10 wasn't very productive except for setting up some projects, which I guess counts since it was craft prep.

March 11 I did another box but Valentines themed.  Used red and irridescent white glitter inside with the 3D saying.


Added the pearl strand around the lid.

And some ribbon and lace on the side.

Cupcakes from scratch count as a craft so here is March 12th's submission.  I cheated with the icing and used store bought.

March 13 was spring forward day and I got about 3 hours of sleep so I was somewhat of a zombie.  I did manage to paint a couple birdhouses and finish this one.




I am seriously running out of projects to fill this month which I never thought I'd see happen.  Wish me luck!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I can't believe it will be 10 years in June. My blog was very different in those days. I used it as an outlet to vent quite often.

    1. Thanks! Since they won't stand up on the point, I added a metal bail onto the back so that it can be hung like an ornament.
