Craftiness

On one of the days I was playing with my girls, we were playing in their Melissa & Doug castle. It had been gifted to them in New Mexico, by the sweetest lady ever. It came with some wooden royalty figurines. We also have some similar faery figurines to play in it with, too. As we were playing, I was inspired by these cute little figurines to try my hand at making my own. Some time later, armed with heavy gauge wire, yarn, glue, clay, beads, fabric and trim, I set out to make my own little toys.

They turned out way awesome and super sturdy! Way sturdier than the other figurines the girls have actually. We have been having a ball playing with them ever since!

Later in the month, I made these Essential Oil Diffuser Mala Bead Necklaces for our flight to Dallas, TX on the 19th.

They allowed us to put a couple drops of “Stress Away” on the terra cotta diffuser bead to help calm our nerves for the flight.

They worked like a charm.
