TNT Plus!

 Happy TNT! Today we have a little recap of all my crafting activities.

First, some tiny needle work! I'm really enjoying working on my snowy stack. I have the animals almost all partway in so you can see them all!

I received my Knitter's Hunk prize from my twinnie--and there's a pink and coral theme that includes some gorgeous yarn, tea that I'm dying to try, fox things, kitten things, and soak.


I also have another potholder done but not bound off yet. You can buy a lot of colors of loops on Etsy and so that's fun.

Here is my next round of beads! Vera, this is my first go-round with Mod Podge too.  I'm not sure exactly what this magical elixir is (other than glue) but it works well and smells interesting. Not bad exactly. Just interesting.


Kym, paper beads are so easy. I think I'm going to string them on elastic for bracelets and maybe on cord for necklaces.  Tim and I have a plan that we can have some little ocean crafts booth at various craft fairs up and down the coast, and if I can get the beads done well in some ocean colors those might be a fun thing. 

I also learned you can do beads in white and just put a little bit of washi tape on the end, and that will give you a pop of color on beads. 

Thanks for your positive comments on the cards. Twinnie, washi tape is fun. You can also use it to decorate envelops and packages for the mail.  One very fun place to look at washi tape is Kawaii Pen Shop. But all kinds of places have all kinds of washi tape, and in case you want to know more, here is a list of 100 washi tape ideas. Spoiler: put washi tape on stuff.






Happy TNT!

Oh. . . those beads! I might have to try it. . .

(Also. . . just a public service warning to others . . . that Kawaii Pen Shop is one rabbit hole of a shop.) :-)

Those beads do look like fun! and I love your little stack of animals you are stitching - very cute. So far I have avoided Washi tape...and now I'm going to try to avoid looking at Kawaii Pen Shop!

Nice work! I think your beads look like bugs on the Styrofoam! lol

So funny that you mentioned Kawaii Pen Shop --- that's where I got the kitten pen.

Washi tape may be my downfall. I bought one roll, then another, then a 10-pack and now I have 6 shoeboxes full. I think I have more washi than yarn, and that's saying something! Love your stacking animals. Can't wait to see it finished.

Jeannies comment is funny. I too love your stacking animals. You ladies have lots of talent in more than one craft!
