Oh my, I want to try this too.

Oh, I agree! These are so much fun! I am thinking summer craft project. I also loved the clay candelabra thing as well. I will have to figure that one out. I can just see a passel of those illuminating my picnic table.

These are heavenly. My son is in hospital now and I am constantly playing to distract him. He'll love these when he recovers a bit!
I adore your blog (and was relieved to see that your work desk has lots of leads and layers of paper).
I live on a farm in a fairly remote area, and sometimes I feel so far away from art people.
You bring some wonderful moments to our lives.

Charlotte, thanks for sweet words. I do hope your son recovers very soon, it's so though with sick little children. They should be out, run and play, not sick.
I showed these to my kids as well. Otto was moderately interested, but Tovalisa said she would want to try. Warm thoughts to you.

Junko said...

Louise said...

I love your blog so much, I feel as though you have introduced so many things I've never imagined or seen before!! Thank you!!

Jennifer said...

Too many fun and cool crafts, and so little time! I definitely want to try this project too. I can imagine hanging a group of these in different colors and sizes together on a wall in my apartment.

(PS: I am having a necklace and photo giveaway at my blog and sale in my Etsy shop. I would be so happy if you would check them out! www.gemmifer-jennifer.blogspot.com

I love weaving, I´ll try this for sure!

Color Collective said...

Wow, so cool!!

Bohemian girl said...

I tried it, I have a picture with only blue color so far. It is easy to do, I started before finding out you had instructions there, so it proves it is easy to do. It is super relaxing. I recommend it! Has anyone else tried yet?
Of course, kids have it nicer!

La classe màgica said...
