So I have been busy around the house lately. Trying to get ready for a Christmas Ideas craft show in a couple of weeks. But first I wanted to show what a 10 yr old and a 14 yr old does when they get creative with my stuff. Really, who knew a peat pot could look so cute! It's a good thing that I don't let them have free reign in my room or I wouldn't have anything to work with! So now they reside in my bedroom and in the living room. They are works of art that I will keep forever! The other pics are of some ornamants for the show. I wanted them to look like sugar cookies. They are made from paperclay and I did used christmas cookie cutters though. Some diamond dust and paint and glossy accent and there you have it! Oh and I am also making some vintage paper wreaths as well. This one is made from a childrens chuch song book. So sweet. I think my mother picked the book up at a garage sale for a quarter! I have her on the lookout for things now! It's always better to have more eyes looking for you, and I do need a couple more, my vision is getting a little blurry! Hope everyone has a great day! Oh and if anyone knows how to I would appreciate a little help. How in the world do you resize a pic. to a scrabble tile size? I am so frustrated it's driving me nuts! Any advice would be so appreciated!! Thanks!

Those Christmas ornaments look good enough to eat! Cute peat pot guys, but yes, hide your craft supplies or they'll be made into an extended family of peat pot guys! I'm not much help with the scrabble tile sized images - all my sizing is done by trial and error! (you could cheat, I think there are some images for scrabble tiles on etsy?.) Good luck, x

Arrrghhh... I just wrote this huge reply to your post and it timed out on me. Ok, short and sweet this time! 1) If you have photoshop you can do the tile shrink real fast and easy. 2) OMG, your kids are too sweet! love what they made for you. How adorable!! Finally, those xmas ornaments look good enough to eat!!

I love those cookie ornaments! For the scrabble picture you can always transfer your picture to Picnik and then do a resize with the photo editor. It's really easy to do....really :)
