I spent a little time enjoying crafting tonight instead of rushing, rushing, rushing to get stuff done which is all I have been doing as of late. I had a rather enjoyable time putting this little snowglobe together.

I had a wide mouth ball jar without a lid I found at goodwill recently and thought it would make an excellent faux snowglobe.  I used bottle brush trees I found at Joann’s and a deer I found at a local toy and hobby store.  The snow is eco snow made from potato starch I found at Joann’s also.

Once I had the base done, I started added embellishments. I formed the word Joy from a couple vintage pipe cleaners and hung it from some red braided floss. I then wrapped the opening in chunky yarn and added some vintage earrings and button.

I love it! I had so much fun and can’t wait to make a couple more with my mom at Christmas!  You better believe she has some vintage trees we can use. I will definitely be searching for some more next year and vintage deer too. The best part the trees and the deer are just placed inside so I can swap them out as I feel like it. :)

The above pictures are from instagram. If you want to follow me on there I’m under woollypetals. :) I find I use my iphone camera so much more than I used the camera on my blackberry. It’s so much better and fun with all the apps.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Future Crafter? I don’t know, but he sure likes to help his mommy. Or maybe just distract her with cuteness.

This lovely tape measure managed to keep him occupied for awhile so I could knock out a couple small projects. Not easy these days, with my crawling, pulling up, and cruising little man.

We will be back tomorrow with some project loveliness!

Oh and Happy August! Here’s me hoping it’s not as Hot as July was.

Thanks for stopping by!
