Okay, I’ll admit it… I’m like everyone else. I love our Wooden Pine Forest, but my heart was captured by the little birdies! So, it only seemed fitting that I “immortalize” them in one of our applique blocks. I took the little bird and made 2 larger variations. On ourRead More →

Here is our second variation of our Christmas Tree Applique Block. Because art is suppose to imitate life… we’ve mixed our Wooden Pine Forest in with our Wooden Autumn Forest! (We will have a winter scene closer to Christmas with snow and decorations!) But for now, it is still autumn inRead More →

We had a very busy weekend, tons and tons of fun… but we were exposed to lots and lots of people. Michelle and I assumed SOMEONE would stumble upon a bug this weekend… and, as it turns out, the first to fall was BUG. He came down with a tempRead More →

We get asked all the time about the tools we use while crafting. We are trying to compile a list of the items we feel are a must haves as well as some of the nice to haves ;). The format of this page may change as we play withRead More →

There is a joy in running free and dancing til you wear out your shoes! Running and dancing with Fairy Ribbon Rings makes the experience more delightful. Here are the very easy, non sewing directions for making your own Fairy Ribbon Rings. This is a great craft to do withRead More →

It’s Autumn! Leaving are falling, the air is scented with delicious, woodsy aromas, and the secrets of the forest beckon to us all… child and adult alike. The only thing better than running through the leaves, is running through the leaves with fall colored ribbons streaming in the breeze! Another oneRead More →

Last night’s Annual Pumpkin Carving was a blast! Even though the weather was uncooperative… a fine, misty drizzle… and we weren’t able to have a bonfire, our spirits weren’t dampened. There were pumpkin guts everywhere and so much good food, and promises of recipes, no one seemed to mind beingRead More →

As our Trick-or-Treat goodie for all our lovely readers, I just added our Gourd Ghost Sculpture to our free Desktop Wallpaper collection if you would like to update your computer for Halloween 🙂 Also, Kimara and I have a BIG party on Saturday that we are busy preparing for, so we’ll be on hiatus this weekend. If you’dRead More →

Saturday night is our 19th Annual Pumpkin Carving Party… I’ll tell you more about that later. But when the decorations were unpacked, a devastating discovery was made. Mice had gotten into one of the boxes and ate one of the family’s most beloved decorations… our Gourd Ghost Sculpture. I really findRead More →

Last fall the kids and I made these Salt Dough Veggies to correspond with our Autumn Harvest Unit. A lot of time was spent gathering the harvest off of our farm mat. I was amazed at the detail the salt dough held. We have a few surviving pieces… but the dog (andRead More →

I’m totally in love with my latest endeavor. All the projects I post please me (alas, those that don’t will never receive their 5 minutes of fame on our blog!), but every now and then I make something that I could never part with. My new Falling Leaves Wall Hanging has just bumped outRead More →

This past spring my SIL sent me a suprise gift… a gift card at Spoonflower. So cool! If you are unfamiliar with Spoonflower it is a site where you can upload your own designs and have your very own… totally original… fabric printed. Ahhh… the possibilities here are endless. ThisRead More →

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 beenRead More →

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.  Read More →

(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,Read More →

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 areRead 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 theRead More →

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 asRead More →
