peg people

Last year for Christmas I bought Phoebe the Klutz Clay Charms craft book/kit and she played with it all break. It was super fun to see her really get into a craft project. So this year I wanted something similarly crafty for under the tree. I think it was Amy (yep, here) who first linked to this Margaret Bloom book, Making Peg Dolls and made me wanty want it. It’s so good! Her projects are so cute. And I, … More

I’ve got Land of Nod files open today. I love these little drawings of the dolls. I have two projects to finish up for them this week and then the Christmas crafting will commence! Can’t wait! I need to get on pinterest and start collecting ideas. What cute things are out there today?

one tree up

We put up our little artificial tree with the handmade ornaments this weekend. I was smart last year and organized the Christmas decorations so we could do it in phases this year.

It'd be nice to make it to the new year this time around.

And I made these cupcakes for Oscar’s class. From BHG, here.

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!! That one two punch of class parties right into … More

I unrolled cotton balls and used the strips of cotton to wrap up spools, wooden wheels, plastic eggs, anything I could find really and then glue gunned on little heads and buttons and … More

thriftcraft, we hardly knew ya

As some of you might have already seen, I’m bringing ThriftCraft back into the fold of Wee Wonderfuls for now. It’s just too overwhelming having 2 blogs. Well actually it’s not. I could just let it sit there unupdated for long periods of time. But I get all twitchy when things are hanging out there like that so for my sanity I made an ‘official’ decision. So now thrifty treats will be over here on the w.w. Here are some … More
