Melted crayola art

Hey guys!  Just wanted to drop in and share my newest creations with you guys.  I've been seeing a lot of melted crayon art all over Pinterest and finally decided to give it a shot myself.  Reina (my 5 1/2 year old) helped me and these are the two creations we came up with. Can't see it in the pictures but the black silhouettes are sparkly and the white ones are as well.  I think I'm going to ink the white ones with some metallic ink to make them show up a little bit more against the white parts of the canvas.  Anyway,  Enjoy!

My first duct tape wallet!

I am at home today with a sick kiddo and trying to fight the major urge to go back to bed since I barely got any sleep last night, I was sitting here at my craft table and looking at rolls upon rolls of duct tape and decided to do something with some of the manly print ones.  So- I produced my first duct tape wallet!

Hello Kitty!

Hello Kitty has invaded my house- in duct tape!  While shopping last night I ran across some Hello Kitty duct tape and couldn't resist!  My mind was racing with ideas on how to use them- and these are what I came up with!

 The Hello Kitty face and lettering are made of duct tape and paper backing.  They are applied with Alleen's Original Tacky Glue.   The lining of the purse is a paw print fabric.  The strap is made from Craft Designer brand Macrame Cord that has been wrapped in duct tape.

The second bag has a velcro closure.  The closure is made from Hello Kitty duct tape on the front side and underside is white duct tape.  It has wavy cut edges.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these purses, please email me at  They are both for sale.  Please email me with any questions or inquiries to buy.

Have a great weekend!  Happy Crafting!

Hey guys!  Haven't been on here for a while but I plan on dropping in and posting on a more regular basis!

I am happy to announce that I am officially a paid crafter!  In the past few weeks I have sold 2 of my duct tape purses and even had one special ordered after a buyer bought their first one!  I have also been asked to put together a scrapbook for a customer's son because as she put it, she's just not crafty like that!  The same customer also asked me to give her all my deets so she can have some business cards made for me so she can help me advertise!  So needless to say- I'm flattered beyond belief and finding it pretty dang exciting that I'm starting to make some money off doing things that I love doing anyway!

So as I said, I guess you guys will start seeing more of me in the future!  And I hope you enjoy it because I definitely enjoying sharing things with you guys!

Have a great night!  I hope everyone else's week has started off as wonderful as mine has!
