A Word About Copyrights...

A couple of our most frequently asked questions are... "Can we sell items we make with your patterns?" and "What does copyright mean?" We are in the process of finishing up Wee Folk Art's official "Q & A" link, which will answer those questions and a bunch more. In the meantime, we've been having a discussion with one of readers who asked if we could send her some business cards so she could hand them out at a bazaar where she will be selling some items she made with our patterns. It got us to thinking two things: First, we really need to finish our Q & As. It will save us tons of time :) And, we should share a PDF of our business cards for anyone that needs them or just wants to carry some Wee Folk Art in her pocket :) 

Here is an excerpt from our Q & As that address these two questions:

All of your patterns say Copyright. What does that mean? All of our patterns and directions are original. Although the “concepts” cannot be copyrighted… hey, who would own the copyright on a doll or a coaster? BUT, the patterns, directions,...Read more

Project Flashback - Stiff, Fabric Ghosts

Here is another Autumn Project Flashback from Wee Folk Activities. The kids and I made these Stiff, Fabric Ghosts last Halloween. Although pictured outside, we ended up taken them indoors where they spent the season haunting our dining room. Enjoy this fun, spooky craft.

Pumpkin Thumbprint Cookies

(This post is a look into the inner workings of Kimara. Avert your eyes if you are squemish.) So, we all know about my hour long phone call yesterday, and how it turned in a bit of a paint debacle, which proceed into some colorful doodling, which, given the fact that it could, resulted in a blog. With me so far? Okay, so Hootie comments saying the 5 pumpkins on the wall reminded her of her MIL because she was a preschool teacher and use to do this poem all the time. Which, because I lead a very small life, tickles me senseless, because being an ex-preschool teacher, that's exactly what I was thinking about when I lined up those 5 pumpkins. Which, naturally made me want to share the poem, so I popped on FaceBook and posted the poem... which was received quite well I may add. Okay, so a paint spill now becomes two different postings. So... there's always a so, isn't there... sooooo.... I'm sitting there this afternoon thinking about the pumpkin thumbprints, which gets me to thinking about our Christmas Thumbprint cookies, which makes me think that there is no reason in this entire world why I shouldn't make...Read more

Thumbprint Pumpkins

What happens when you combine a compulsive doodler, orange paint and an hour long phone conversation? A gaggle of pumpkins, of course! Seriously, I'm on the phone and there was my cheese box of paints sitting next to me. I was playing with the paint bottles... because compulsive doodlers are also world class "fidgeters". So, I'm popping the top of the orange paint and some squirted out. While cleaning it up with some scraps from the wastebasket, I noticed I got some on my thumb. Naturally, I needed to clean my thumb (BTW... all the while talking on the phone) so I went to rub it off on scrap paper, and although smeared, left behind a thumbprint... true story. Well, you can imagine where it goes from there!

While on the phone, I made a garland, a wreath, and a brick wall of pumpkins, and, with the help of a thin point black magic marker and a brown and gold Sharpie, turned those little pumpkins into Jack-O-Lanterns. So, this really isn't a tutorial, per se, but rather the sharing of a process. (BTW... a craft blog is the ONLY place in the world...Read more

I was just revisiting some crafts the kids and I did together last fall and wanted to share them with all our new readers (my how the site has grown in the past year). Over the next couple weeks I will be highlighting some of our favorite Crafting with the Kiddos Activities from last autumn.

First up are these Handprint Sand Candles that make a fun addition to your Halloween decor.

Mushroom Business Card Holder

Well, I got my pattern fixed for the Mushroom Business Card Holder. So, if you'd like to make your very own, TOTALLY cool, business card holder, the directions are good to go. Unfortunately, I spent the afternoon fixing the pattern and didn't get a chance to remake mine. But as soon as I finish this blog, I'm off to work on mine. Actually, Michelle put in a request for a red and white mushroom one, so I'll probably do that one first! The pattern for the Mushroom Business Card Holder can be found HERE or with the FREE Patterns. Enjoy!
