Homemade Playdough


As a coordinator to help with crafts at our local Mom's group one year we decide the ladies would make children friendly recipe scrapbooks.  Each meeting the Mom's came together and created 2-3  4"x6" pages that would be placed in a small photo-album.  Once the year was over I continued to add more pages and create books for gifts.

A "Hand" Bag

I work at the local community art center teaching youth how to do various art techniques.  The art instructors were challenged to come up with a hand bag entry for the local bag auction to raise money for the Pella Public Library.  A student from every class was asked to trace their hand print and cut it out.  The hands were then sewn to a large tote bag.

Oz costumes

Helping coordinate over 50 Munchkin costumes for our local High school production this fall was on the agenda.  A hand created hat from craft foam embellished with trims and silk flowers was worked on to coordinate with each costume.  Helping sew over 50 pairs of elf looking shoes created from bright colored felt was the final step to making these munchkins come alive.
