I saw these on The Crafty Crow yesterday...and had to make them! Here is a link to the tutorial on marthastewart.com. It's really easy to follow. The only change that I made was that I embroidered on the eyes, instead of using buttons. I like the button eyes, but thought that embroidered eyes would be safer for my kids...and just make them better to snuggle with:)

I finally got up the nerve to try making a soldered glass pendant. I've had a kit that I bought off of Etsy for like...2 years now! I still need a lot of practice, but I can say that the soldering iron and solder do not intimidate me anymore. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. I'm most proud that I was able to solder on the bail. The picture is of my grandparents, and on the back it says love.
Here is a great online video that I found: Soldered Collage Charm/Pendant using Glass Slides. I also have this book: Simple Soldered Jewelry & Accessories: A Crafter's Guide to Fashioning Necklaces, Earrings, Bracelets & More.

Small magazine's blog had this post about do-it-yourself Where the Wild Things Are costumes today. I was thinking about making Sienna a Max costume for a while, but now she wants to be an Oompa Loompa. I was just going to take a white fleece hoodie and sweat pants, sew on ears and a tale...make a crown...done:) Now I need to figure out how to do an Oompa Loompa!
Above is a Max polymer clay bead that I made a couple of years ago.
