Old Stock

The other day while reorganizing my art supplies I found a small pile of bases for barrettes and a few pins. 

I'm just finishing up the one with the vines, and hope to get it listed tomorrow.

They are made out of cereal boxes, it's a painstaking process that includes: cutting out the shapes, gluing the layers together, shaping, sanding, sanding some more, then the fun part - painting.  They turned out to be way too labor intensive for the price I can expect to get for them so I'm not planning on making any more when I'm done with these.  Hopefully I will get them all finished and listed in the shop over the next few days (probably longer) 

See, cereal boxes.

Oh, and I've been working on some more embroidered brooches, like this one:

This weekend will be all about getting some of those decorations up and doing some crafts with the kiddo.  I have been finding all sorts of fun crafts on Pinterest, like this one: Cinnamon ornaments

Do you have any fun weekend plans? Do you have a fun holiday craft idea?
