Monster Kindle Cover

A few weeks ago my Monster child destroyed my kindle case and since it’s an older kindle finding a case has proven to be a challenge. 

I finally found one and was certain it would work…too small. Made for a different generation. No good.

Luckily for me, I’m a crafty sort of person some days and decided to make my own using some leftover yarn. Unfortunately again, I couldn’t find a pattern I liked so I just kind of made it up as I went along. The end results are pretty cool. 

Now if only I knew how to embroider I’d put a monster mouth on it.

Buttons, Buttons Everywhere

This past weekend I took to Pinterest in an attempt for something new and fun to make my grandmother for Mother’s Day. As I put the struggling in struggling artist I’ve made it a habit to make gifts wherever I can and my grandma appreciates the effort put in. 

This year I went with Buttons. I made button flowers, a button charm bracelet, and when I have time and a suffocient amount of buttons I’m going to make an epic button bouquet. 

My coworker turned me onto the button flower thing and all of the possibilities excite me. I can’t wait to find time to make more stuff.
