Sneak peak of a One of a Kind item

So my wonderful husbands amazing Uncle Craig is a most talented craftsman.  I am trying to share his amazing work with the world.

Check out these tables that he spent hundreds of hours on, hand crafting them. 

How gorgeous are these?

Naturally finished below is his brief description of them. 

One of a Kind

This black walnut and antler table set was made from a rare large Black walnut tree, also trophy Elk and Mule Deer Sheds.

The coffee table- a cross section from the bottom of the trunk of the tree 3”thick.The tree started growing from 7 small trees. 5 grew into 1 and 2 grew into1 then both of them grew into one very large beautiful black walnut tree.

The base is made with 4-6 point elk main beams, 2-4 point x braces and 2-4 point mule deer x braces

End table – made from the same tree from a fork in the tree farther up.

Base- a matching set of 5 point  with 2 point support elk antler sheds. Where main beams x on both tables they are pinned together with spike mule deer antlers.

Both tables are reinforced with plywood under the slab for long lasting strength and finished with tongue oil only. This priceless matching set was artistically crafted as a beautiful center piece in a beautiful home or cabin.

I am getting ready to post them to my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in purchasing these beauties let me know.  He is selling them as a set.  Once I have to post active to sell I will send that out.   

Please share this with anyone who may be interested, or even just appreciate the beauty.  

As always thank you for stopping by.  Feel free to leave me any comments.

So I'm thinking about a change..

I'm thinking about changing the name of my blog and my company.......I'm not really in love the name Natural Beauties any more, and it never really became to branded.  So In attempts to revamp myself and my style I'm considering the new name PIXIE DUST CREATIONS!!!!!!!!!!

What do you all think?  I would love to hear any thoughts from any of you who may actually read this......let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking!

I should not be allowed in craft stores alone!

I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but I should not be allowed in craft store unsupervised...ok maybe I should.  Anyway I had to go find some bobby pins to finish an order for an amazing friend at work.  
I went into Michaels and showed great restraint, at least I thought so.  They had so many of their jewelry supplies ON SALE!!! 50% OFF!!!  and I walked away because they didn't have what I needed.  So sad, really.  So then I went to JoAnnes and found these!

While I was there (and here comes the unsupervised part) I found these cute kits!

Not on sale!  However they looked so fun!  Now I've made the flower bracelets/watchbands, but I wanted to try this one and it had everything in one spot.  My box was open and the instructions were missing so I had to wing it, but check out everything it had with it.

and this is how my Non instruction version turned out.
Not to bad right!

Now for the zipper flowers! The kit includes enough stuff to make 6 different flowers, 3 small and 3 large.  You can make them pins or clips.  If you can't tell I'm a little excited about this one.  Check out everything that comes with it!  Sooo much stuff to play with!

By the time I got done playing (and realizing that I am way to old to sit on the floor that long) I finished Three  of my flowers!  So far these are all pins, I'm sure I will make the others very soon. (once my back forgives me haha)

I think they are pretty cute.  How about all of you?

So if you ever think that you want to give something a try....but don't want to buy ALL the stuff to find out you just don't like it...look for some of these little kits! You might just find a new obsession, at least until the next one pops up.

Thanks for looking!

More hair crap!! Flower bobby pins!

I made some flowers and wasn't sure what to do with them.  One I turned into a small wrist band for my granddaughter Dez. Another I used as a matching headband.  (I didn't get pictures :( I was still waiting to have enough money for my new camera, trying to take pictures with my phone just wasn't working. Now I finally have my new camera and can post again!

So anyway what I finally decided to do with these is make bobby pins!

What you need to make these cute little creations is:

A bag of flower parts used for scrapbooking.  I got mine at Roberts for about 7.00.

Just look at all the cute colors in this bag!  Some have glitter some don't.  so many different sizes and colors. Some bags have patterned flowers like zebra strips, polka dots, and more.

Anyway once you have your bag of flowers then you just grab some decorative brads (also for scrap-booking) 

Also grab some bobby pins that have the flat circle to glue things to, I found these at hobby Lobby.  A bag of 18 is around $3.

Start layering your flower parts in what order and color you like and put one of your brads through the middle (they already have small holes cut in them just for the brads) and them glue them to the bobby pins!  That's it and you have a whole bunch of cute and unique flowers!  

So what do you all think?
  Thanks for looking!

Okay so we all know that I have crafters ADD! I can't help it, I think we all have a little ADD in some area, all of mine just seem to overlap. haha  Anyway, I found this adorable free tutorial on one the blogs I follow (sadly I suffer CRS and can't remember which one) for this cute little purse. This lady is awsome! You can check out her etsy page here and see some of the other patterns that she sells.

So I had to start playing around
don't you love the robots!
This was my first draft.  It's so much fun, however I can't leave anything alone.   So I started making some modifications to this cute little bag.  
tie-die butterflies and peace signs!  Who doesn't love peace signs, I mean come on really it's a win win right?
So I messed with the dimensions just a little and made it wider.  Added some yo-yo's and buttons to the front for decoration.

haha I wish I had a better camera so that you could really see all the cool bright colors (hint, hint to all my family and friends)

I didn't like how wide the strap was or how it was just sewn into the sides, so I added some "D" rings and narrowed down the strap by about half.

My cute daughter being my model!  She's such a good sport.
So what do you think?  Thanks for looking! And on to the next ADD project for my house...LOL
