I haven't really been crafting at all since coming home...that's one part of my old life I just haven't reopened. But yesterday I did whip up something tiny. And I mean TINY.
Actually, a little girl I was babysitting had an actual pair of earrings that looked like ladybugs. I thought that was brill, but I didn't know where to get them (and I don't spend money--it hurts!) so I decided to make some myself.
All I did was take a pair of those crystal surgeon's steel studs you can get 6 of for like $2. I happened to have two pairs of basically the same thing--medium "diamond" looking studs. Using one pair, and some of my eons-old Sculpey clay, I modeled the ladybugs. Stabbed the posts through a piece of paper into a teased cotton ball, so they'd stand up while baking. Baked for only 5 minutes and that was it! Super easy. And I love the result. :)
