I made more of a promise to myself than a resolution this year. When I get too busy I leave the crafting behind and then I miss it terribly...which can result in crazed glue gun binges. I have to get the crafty urges out a little at a time to stay happily productive. I promised myself I'd devote time and space to make a mess now and then, and enjoy it. Both of my boys like penguins, and in our house being crazy about an animal usually means Mama will make a tshirt to celebrate it. So here's to the penguin of toddler dreams and a few tips for you if you're going to try one yourself!
drawing your penguin on paper and placing in under a white shirt front layer will allow you to peek and see the outline you are going to paint

Some years ago I noticed a jewelry designer using vintage dog rabies tags in jewelry making and I unabashedly copied her by adding one to my own charm bracelet. I LOVE these. People saw mine and asked about them, and I bought more. And more. But they are getting much harder to find. The tag I included in a recently made charm bracelet is from 1919. How amazing is that? What was getting shots for your pet like in 1919? I shudder to think... Then there are the vintage soda pop caps I started buying over ten years ago. I love the names of oldtime sodas and that the caps were lined in cork! Cork, seriously? So now that I have confessed, what oddity have you seen added to jewelry that made you smile?
