The Elves and The Shoemaker

As a child I was fascinated with this story. If I remember right, the version we had was by Paul Galdone and the little elves that helped him were naked and he and his wife surprised them with
beautiful little outfits. I just loved it! I have also fallen in love with the simple process of making these adorable little shoes out of my wool. I have made a few for baby shower gifts and for my little grand daughter Elsie. They are addicting and so adorable!

Witch Hat


A styrofoam cone and paper-mache . . . a festive little hat was
born! I covered it with old Halloween post cards, old photos and newspaper.
The silk flowers & bow are wired on the top.
It was fun to do - the only creative project I have made
time for this season.


*link is fixed to DIY Dish - sorry I goofed before!
Inspiration for this projects and the how-to
came from this DIY Dish web site. I met these
two girls at Spark last month and they are from
our sweet little valley! Funny girls with so much
energy...and yes, I think they look do look a lot
like Marie Osmond. They really are awesome
women.
