Crafts Carnival #3

Oh my! February 4th has come and gone. I scheduled that date for my Crafts Carnival #3. For all those who have submitted links and ideas, I apologize for the delay!

Here is a late welcome to the February 4, 2009 edition of Keiki Gifts Crafts Carnival.

  • Awwww...these are cute! This is something I would buy or hope someone would make for me. PDF instructions are provided to make vintage plant holders out of wood. InfoChick presents Plant Holders to Make With Your Jigsaw posted at The Vintage Info Network, saying, "A bunch of cheerful plant holders to make & paint - a Peasant Girl, a Chef, a Donkey, a Sail Boat, a Mexican and a bird for flower pot holding. And there are a few to hold individual flowers - a butterfly, a lady with flowers in her hat and hoop-skirted maiden."
  • We always seem to be buying napkins for our messy household but that doesn't need to be the case if we can convert to cloth napkins. For "sew" and "no sew" instructions Condo Blues writes How to Use and Make Cloth Napkins and it is posted at Condo Blues.
  • I found this post very helpful! Vera Lang presents 6 Ways to Use Stamps in Scrapbooking at Fine Craft Guild .com, saying, "A discussion of different stamping techniques and types of ink to use that of course is of use for card makers as well as scrappers! btw Lots of Valentine craft ideas on this blog this February..."
  • Bath Salts would make great Valentine's Day gifts. Easy to make, pretty and many different varieties too! Bath Salts How To posted at Home Life Weekly, saying, "Making bath salts is quick, easy and simple and won’t take a lot of time out of your day"
  • Here is a tutorial on how to make practical as well a thoughtful handmade gifts for all those who need calendars (that would be just about everyone). Vera Lang presents Craft a Simple, Marvellous Desk Calendar posted at Fine Craft Guild .com, saying, "This calendar idea uses 100% recyclables. There is a page for each month, and of course, February will be a LOVE-FILLED themed page. I hope you like my sample project and I look forward to receiving pictures of calendars you've made."
  • I am so touched whenever I receive a handmade quilt because I know a lot of hard work and love went into making it. Belle shares her quilt making ideas and project with us at Making Quilts from Old Clothing posted at Homesteaderbelle's Blog, saying, "This is a post about the quilts I make from old clothing. "
  • Nice job using the photoshop program. santoshi presents Black 31 posted at Black is beautiful, saying, "Creating art works using photoshop is my favourite hobby. Hope u like my works."
