A new generation of crafting.

Yesterday, I stopped by my sister Courtney's house to pick up a few things.  As I walked into her house, she was standing with a glue gun and a cute little chick in her hand and said, "My house is such a wreck."  This is what I walked in on in her living room ....

And this .....

Because she had been creating these ....

And these ....

And some of these ...

.... for a boutique that was coming up.

Really Courtney?  Her creativity never ceases to amaze me.

But this "Queen of the Circus" takes the cake ...

Her skirt is a bird cage ... and look what's inside ...

I was with my friend and she said, "Wow, I didn't realize I liked elephants so much!"

But who wouldn't when they look this cute?!?!?!

(I call this kind of crafting, the new generation of crafters ... back in the day when I opted to craft, we did a little bit of tole painting and made a few frames and puff painted t-shirts.  This kind of stuff takes on a whole new meaning of the word crafting - I don't have that kind of patience anymore.  Maybe I never did.)


    Gimme dat Queen o' the Circus!!!

  2. Oh my gosh! How adorable are all of these!!! That skirt made out of a birdcage is DARLING!
    I am with you ... I have no talent for crafting!
    Have a pretty day!

  3. I'm with you ~ never
    thought outside the box like
    this!!! Wow, she's truly
    amazing. When does her
    etsy shop open???! Seriously,
    she really should.
    Hope you are enjoying
    a wonderful weekend!

  4. Courtney is so dang talented! LOVE IT!

  5. FOR REAL!?!?!?!
    my mom warned me about looking at courtney's stuff cause she said it was TO DIE FOR. and i dont think that even begins to describe it. holy cow-

  6. WOW...Courtney is AMAZING!!!! She will sell out of everything she makes...I think the idea of an etsy shop would be great...but, her living room might end up being a permanent craft area!!!


  7. o my goodness!!!! amazing!! i'm super in love with it all.
