Sometimes Bug comes looking for something “manly”. When he asked if I could draw him a lizard, I was glad to oblige. After I drew it for him, (he was thrilled with it, btw 🙂 it screamed “applique block”! So here, in some fun summer colors, and definitely “boy worthy”Read More →

Because of everything that has been going on this summer, I feel like I’m a little behind… Wee Folk Art speaking. There were a few things that we have done that I didn’t have time to share at the time but still want to. So… first up… STRAWBERRIES! Although JuneRead More →

Hopefully you won't find this spider going up your water spout! I designed this applique because Bug wanted more bugs in his life 🙂 When we were making stamps for our Letterboxing Nature Journals, Bug wanted something that "boys like". He was quite smitten with the spider, and since that time, this spider has appeared many places. It was designed to fit a 6" x 6" blockRead More →

Although snails might not be welcomed visitors in your garden, they are certainly a sign of summer! And, if they are not ravishing your tender young plants, they are cute as… well, cute as a bug's ear 🙂 I know the wee ones are fascinated with snails, and the geek in me always marvels at the the mathematical formula, The Fibonacci sequence, that is visible in the spiral in aRead More →

“Once there was a peddler who sold caps. But he was not like an ordinary peddler, carrying his wares on his back. He carried them on top of his head.” So begins the tale of Caps for Sale, the lovely story of an unorthodox peddler and a tree full of peskyRead More →

  EDIT: One of our readers just contacted Casey’s Wood Products where I put the wood parts for the products. They suggested buy the pot #7 which is Premium Wood Bean Pot Candle Cup – 1-9/16″ , (not #7C) . Just should fit nicer than the one I used and you shouldn’tRead More →

Spring has sprung! The trees are flowering, and the baby birds are bouncing around the yard looking for yummies! Just imagine the fun you can have with this little “FunScape” applique. Designed to fit a 6″ x 6″ block, it can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs. Michelle REALLY enlarged this block and painted a mural in Pixie and Fairy’s room. The pattern for the Bitty Birdie AppliqueRead More →

Who can turn flowers into fairies, a dog into a dragon, and a pesky sibling into a troll? Children, of course! With just a flick of their wrist and the help of a magic wand, ANYTHING is possible and probable 🙂 And, if the wand is a beautiful flower, allRead More →

The daffodils in our yard are just poking their heads through the ground, but I was aching for some flowers, NOW, so I decided to make my own. You can make a garland or 2 or 3 for yourself, too. Hang your Spring Flower Garland up and you’ll feel like you stumbled upon an enchanted flower fairy garden. WithRead More →

Continuing with our Out of the Block Series, we are sharing ways in which our Applique Blocks can be used in non-traditional ways. This month, we took our Kite Applique Block and turned it into a wooden kite with a peg suitable for hanging “stuff” 🙂 Of course, if you just want to use them for decoration, simply leave the pegRead More →

Yesterday we shared this month’s Out of the Block project… a wooden kite made using today’s Kite Applique Block. What is it about kites that excites us so? Is it the fact that a little paper, wood and string, can be transformed into a soaring vision? Or is it, that for justRead More →

A couple of weeks ago I shared a sweater and hat I knitted for the Little Lady. (Leaving Thursday for a week long visit 🙂 I wanted a little embellishment for the hat, and I made a flower using the material that I will be using to make her 2 pairs of reversible pants. Although I sewed the flower directly on her hat, you couldRead More →

February is a great time to share sweet treats with all the "sweeties" in our life. And what's sweeter than an ice cream cone with sprinkles on top? Our Ice Cream Cone Applique looks yummy enough to eat!  We added sprinkles using a straight stitch and 6 strands of floss, but you could easily add glass beads for extra glitter. Or, cover in French knots. This appliqueRead More →

  FINALLY was able to wake up to snow. Granted… it’s only 1″, and granted… it’s suppose to rain in a couple of days and it will probably be all gone, but this morning I feel like I’m 5 years old and I want to get on snow clothes and go outside and play! I have been waiting toRead More →

I woke up at 6:00 Monday morning with an idea. I must dream in crafts, because I often wake up with some scathingly brilliant or totally lame idea… my dreams don’t always transfer well to wakefulness! Anyway, I knew I wanted to add something to Bug’s Art Supply Messenger Bag,Read More →

Back in early November, I had my idea for Bug’s Christmas gift. He LOVES to draw, and I thought it was high time he had his own supplies. So, I got him a sketch book, a couple of “how to draw” books, and a nice set of pencils and erasers. Read More →
