My Crafty Creations for the Week

I admit, I've neglected this blog for quite some time. I want to begin to remedy that. This may end up only being a once a week blog post. Maybe more. We'll see.
For tonight, I just want to show some pictures of the craft projects I've worked on this week. Here goes:

This was started a few weeks ago, and is still not completely finished. It needs a pin back. However, it was sealed and the pieces were glued together.

I worked on my felting skills this week, starting with some wool roving.

Forming the beads
And creating a bracelet. I know it's not the greatest work, but not bad (I think) for my first real attempt.
I also worked on some home decor. With a piece of canvas board, I painted the background and started with some black circles.
Filling in the circles and adding more, gave me this.
I played with my microwave fuse glass kiln to make this. It still needs to go to the grinder and placed on a pendant.
Through the week, I was making some paper clay beads. I started by forming the beads into some random shapes. Then, I took some regular stamps and pressed images into the shapes before poking the holes and leaving them to dry for a few days.
Lastly, I painted the beads.So, that's been my adventures into the world of craft this week. I'm pretty happy with the results.
Thanks for stopping by.
