Crafty Three Day Weekend = Lots of Projects Completed!

Happy Labor Day!  I love three day weekends, but even better yet - I love three day weekends where I can craft my little heart out.  I was able to begin (and actually finish) numerous projects this weekend,  in addition to starting some new ones that still need some work.  Here's a few of those projects:

I designed and hand-painted some mini shrines.  They are made from resin and paper clay.  I plan to make these into pendants:



I sewed a brand new outfit for my sweet little Infant of Prague statue:

I finished some brand new resin pendants and posted them to EBay and Etsy:

I completed three charm bracelets (two are pictured here):

And, I drew out sketches for artwork I am thinking about entering into this year's Arts Center of the Ozarks 5 by 5 Art Exhibition.  I'm not sure which ones I'll use yet.  I definitely will be entering two pieces of art into the exhibit, I just have to decide which ones....hmmmm.    These are just the preliminary sketches.  Once they are painted onto the actual canvas, I'll be sure to share them with you.


Isn't it crazy?  I actually was going to paint a landscape scene as one of my entries, but I always come back to the Virgin Mary when creating art.  She really is my favorite subject in many aspects of the word.

And last, but certainly not least, I FINALLY set up a Two Crafty Mules page on Facebook!  Whew!  I'm blissfully tired.  There's nothing quite like the sense of accomplishment.  Now, I think I'm just going to chill out and relax before heading back to the office tomorrow.

What a wonderful output! I am duly impressed!
And your colorful minishrines are just charming. You must really be a quick-thinking, positive go-getting artisan. I doubt I could get even half as much done in 3 days!
Wow!

Hey Wanda. How do you donate the 5x5 canvases? I've seen they had that posted but couldn't find any more info on it. Was thinking about donating a canvas myself but wasn't sure what to do. Do we just contact the ACO?

Your bracelets are a beautiful mixture of images and beads. And a lovely new garment for the Infant of Prague. I look forward to seeing your 5x5 canvas. Blessings Bonnie
