So, the youngest of the nieces and nephews turned 12 this past week. I feel like the older I get, the faster time flies. These last few years I have made a concerted effort to slow down and enjoy the moments. Creating a special senior crown with Marlee who is starting her last year in high school. Riding roller coasters with Zach who is finishing his last semester in college. Helping Josie fill a new backpack with all the supplies needed to start seventh grade. Making cupcakes with Lindsay for her college graduation party. Make special memories in those simple, special moments. Creativity comes in all forms. What are YOU up to this week? I’d love for you to scroll down and share your latest and greatest with us. The Creative Crafts Linky Party #54 is here and we are super excited to start the party with YOU!
Creative Crafts: Sharing Inspiration, Creativity, and Kindness
Let me introduce you to three of my craftiest and dearest friends.
Ann of Bella Crafts Publishing creates a quarterly digital magazine, has her own line of stamps, pigments, and watercolors, and is an all-around crafting goddess!
Laura of Me and My INKlings has the biggest heart, the most creative spirit, and just wrote a book Kindness on Purpose, and makes the cutest stickers, notepads, and cards in her online shop! Plus a new craft line with Therm-O-Web.
Lindsay of Artsy-Fartsy Mama is uber-talented with resin, paint, polymer clay, and fabulous sewing projects. She also has a huge library of free printables and SVG files.
And, me, I’m Creatively Beth and I love to tackle anything and everything creative especially doodling, hand-lettering, kids crafts, and free hand-drawn printable files!
Features for Creative Crafts Linky Party #54
Laura is featuring Hanging Tin Can Succulent Planters created by Claire at Pillar Box Blue. Always upcycling everything in sight, Claire is so very creative with items from the recycle bin. These were decorated with paint, but check out how she covered a set of recycled pop cans to create similar planters. BRILLIANT!
Ann is sharing a Chalk Painted Antique Dresser Makeover by Wendy at My French Twist. I just love the deep and rich indigo blue paint that she selected for this stunning upcycle. Click through to see the step-by-step process and how Wendy refinished the hardware to give this piece a modern update. GORGEOUS!
Beth (that’s me) is featuring a Trash to Treasure Doll Bed Shelf by Lisa at Fresh Vintage. I am always on the lookout for interesting and quirky pieces like this that just take the uniqueness factor to the next level. The perfect upcycle for a vintage-inspired nursery or special playroom for the grandkids. Check out how Lisa covered the original decal on the ends while refinishing the crib. FABULOUS!
