Fresh Style Feature Images

Now that the holiday issue of Fresh Style has been out for a little while they gave me the ok to share the feature images with you so you can check out what I made. :O)

They wanted me to create crafts that kids could do, so they had to be super-simple. The first one? Cheery little felt and rickrack ornaments! Paige loved choosing the quirky color combos. I thought they look like gum balls on her candy colored tree! (P.S. Do you know how much work it was to unearth all that stuff in the middle of June??)

They also remind me of Charlie Brown. :o) Rickrack always makes me think of good ol' Chuck.

And on a side note, we totally just scored "A Charlie Brown Christmas" for $.50 the other day! So. Excited. I've been trying to buy that for like, ten years, literally, but I can't stand to pay the $25 dollars that stores charge at Christmastime! You know? Ok. I'm done.

So the second project we shared is one that Paige and I worked on together as well. I wasn't sure if the editors would "get it", but they loved it! Phew. 

It's a color-matching memory game made of felt furniture pads (the kind with the sticky backs) and magazine pages. Really easy to make (just stick pictures to the sticky side and trim!) and kids love picking out the photos themselves. You could do colors like I did (Pink flower matches pink swatch, etc.) or match animal pictures, planes trains and cars, words, numbers, anything! I also thought it would be cute to get double prints of family photos for it. You know, match Uncle Bob to Uncle! It would make a cute Christmas gift I think.

Anyway, if you don't get the Fresh Style mag where you live, you can buy it online, here! There are tons of other cute ideas in there, too. I really loved the issue, actually! Really inspiring. I noticed Jennifer Holmes of Dear Lilly, and Victoria Hudgens of A Subtle Revelry. in there as well. Cool to be in the same publication as those lovely ladies!

Well I hope this post finds you well, my dears. I'm feeling much better! Ready to start crafting and working on my studio. It's been killing me to sit in bed!!

Have a great day!
