My first crafty love is jewelry. It has been a long time since I have made in. Sometimes when you love something you have to set it free and then see if it comes back to you, blah blah blah. Whatever the reason I just had jewelry burnout. Lately I have been getting the itch to whip up some wearable magic. Enter wooden beads and my new favorite craft supply - Puffy Paint Writers. Pop over to I Love to Create for the full tutorial.

I have a soft spot for vintage crafts. Each time I see a pair of plates with a spiffy felted couple on top I’m tempted to buy them. Finally today, I broke down and made my own Valentine’s Day themed pair. A little different from the traditional pair with the lady in her veil and hat and the mister with his pipe. Pop over to I Love to Create to see how to make your own modern version.

So my sister Hope Perkins said: "let's do a joint art show" and I said ok. The only thing I had ever done was a colored pencil portrait of Axl Rose in Jr. High. I craft, not paint. However, when Hope asked me I busted out the paint and it kinda started flowing and has not stopped.
It all started with a bag of old perm curlers I bought at a thrift store in McKinney, TX. They were labeled with the name Felicia. Hence the name of my entire collection. Some have curlers, some don't, but all have different ladies.
Now Hope and I are in the process of looking for a space in Austin to host our big show. Any suggestions? I'm also kind of thinking of trying to sell them online. Do I go Etsy, Big Cartel, Shopafy? So many choices.
Whatcha think? Should I not quit my day job?

One of my many resolutions is to tackle one home improvement project per month. If I get around to more great, if I only get to one I'm still on target. Check January off the list because I just took my plain tan headboard to an all new level with the help of a vintage Hawaiian muu-muu, some Tacky Glue and a button covering kit. Check out the I Love to Create blog for the full scoop.
