Handy Suggestion

A suggestion came in from one of our friends recently.  She said she would appreciate a column on our blog about new products and what we thought of them.  We at, Happy Hour Crafts, love to play with the newest and greatest tools and products.  Because we don't have access to all the newest and greatest we will share a little tip with you.  We go to a site call Craft Critique to check out the new products and they always have reviews listed which we have found to be very reliable.  If you have any questions or wonder about any new items out on the market this is the site to check out.  I hope you find it as helpful as we have.  Cheers and happy crafting!!

Twine flowers

While walking around Michaels Prissy and I came upon some flowers.  They looked like they could have been made out of twine or yarn.  We kept looking at them when I finally said "I think I could make this flower."  I came home and dug out some twine I had and was very excited to find I found something to do with it.  Another idea came to mind...I wonder if I could mist the twine.  I made two flowers, one I left natural and the second I used some Maya Road mist on it.  I also played with different embellishments.  I used a pearl brad on one and on the other I used mini glass beads applied with Glossy Accents.  I think this idea with be shared in a class soon.  Don't forget our upcoming class on April 18th, its the Shadowbox Book.  You can get the information about this class on our blog.
