Watermark Tee by Sweet Verbana Hello U-Create readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today. It just so happens to be my first guest post and I'm still a little shocked that it's here at Ucreate, one of my favorite blogs! A little bit about me.. I'm from a little town called Keller, Texas. DIY Toilet Paper Roll Summer Wreath I am not a crafter. Noooo, sirree. I like making odds and ends, but I can assure you that I am not a frills-and-lace, decoupage-crazy, sewing machine addict that spends her spare time bedazzling jumpers and darning clog socks. Magic Wand Tutorial When you are done sew the two main pieces together; first check where you want your stick to sit and starting just to the side of where it will come out, stitch up and around leaving about an inch or so open at the bottom/side for stuffing. Using a chopstick, a pencil, knitting needle or just your fingers stuff gently – aim for it to be firm but not fat – you can add a little right at the end before you close it if you need to. ok – now for ribbons (if you are lucky your baby might wake up just in time to help you with this bit, mine did!) Cut three, four, five lengths of narrow ribbon in whichever colours you like/have. I made mine all different lengths, some longer than the stick and varying ones between. (cut the ends on a diagonal so they are less likely to fray) then tie them all together in a knot close to one end.
Saltwater Kids: thrifty gifts I had one of those "where the heck have I been" moments last week, when my nephew brought his Build-A-Fort kit to Thanksgiving - complete with sheets, clips, rope, suction cups, and more. The kit was a handmade birthday gift from his friend Joli. When I emailed her, she sent me a link to this tutorial over at BLOOM - thanks Joli! ...How did I miss this?
Free Pattern &Tutorial at CraftPassion.com As promised, I have completed the tutorial and the pattern for the “Be My Valentine – Piggy Pillow”, which was published 3 weeks ago.

(my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.

I’m Julie and I’m the very first guest blogger on this fine site. Today’s project involves breaking stuff, plants, found objects, and miniatures. Fun, right? Let’s get started! sharon b's in a minute ago I hope you find this needlework dictionary useful and with it able to improve your hand embroidery skills. To assist those who are new to the craft of hand embroidery I have categorised each stitch as to its degree of difficulty. An icon of a single pair of scissors indicates that the stitch is easy to work and you should not hesitate to try it. If you are new to learning needlework. If you see two scissors, the stitch requires more skill. Three scissors indicate that the stitch needs skill and practice.
