A Crafty Soiree #130

Hi Friends!  I'm so glad to see you for the craftiest day of the week.  I always love seeing what you have been up to, especially since I am in a bit of a crafting slump :(  It started when I was sick for a week earlier this month and I haven't completely bounced back yet.  It's totally zapped me of a lot of energy and motivation to create. 
BUT then I see things like this fabulous clock from Callie's Crafts.  I'm so inspired by her daring do, she didn't wait for her husband to come home to help with the router and plugged that baby in and went to town all by herself!  I love the gorgeous, one of a kind clock she made herself. 
I found these S'more Pudding Cookies over at The Best Blog Recipes and felt the need to run out and buy all the ingredients that day!  S'mores are so yummy anyway, but how often do I get by a campfire?  Now we can enjoy these yummies all year round!
While I haven't been super crafty lately, I have been on a glitter kick. Or rather, I never stopped being one.  Who doesn't ♥ glitter?  Saw this lovely mason jar vase on Circus Berry and fell in love, so simple to make too!  I've gotta have a few empty jam jars laying around the house, just waiting for a new pretty glam life!
Valentine's day might have come and gone for 2013 but this fun idea for how to embellish a plain tote is too cute to wait until next February to try!  Artsy and Crafty Little Things suggests using an pencil eraser to make a Bag of Hearts.  I was thinking that it would be a fun technique to make other simple shapes like flowers for spring and that your kids might want to give this a try too.
This last feature from Altered Artworks, is also Valentine related. This washi tape covered candy holder that can morph into the cutest laundry money carrier ever, is such a fun little way to surprise your favorite college student.  It would be a fun addition to a care package sent any time of the year.
