Fun, Easy, Excellent Crafts

When I come across a craft idea or recipe that seems like it would be fun to create, and not too difficult, it is saved on the computer as a "to do".  Do you have a craft TO DO list?  If not, then why not?

Let's share a few crafty goodness things  with one another.  After you share your little gems, be it your own, or even if purloined from Pinterest or elsewhere, just link it below so everyone on Inspiration Avenue can also join in the fun.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Making terrific clothes pins (magnets for the refrigerator or just to hold your strappy camisoles).  Go here to get the supply list and know-how!

This gem of a how-to comes to us courtesy of Corazon:
 *** (try grapefruit, lemons and limes for varying colours and sizes) with a sharp paring knife slice four large round oranges slightly less than 1/4 inch. dare for slender, the thinner the slice the more stained glass like when dry, too thin and they may curl during drying. too thick and you will not have the orange rich clarity of kissing the sun. place each slice of orange on a paper towel to absorb the juices i decided to place my round slices on metal cooling racks and slide them into the oven, lots of circulation to help them dry. one hour at 275* two hours at 225* i chose to turn my slices every half hour for even drying. be sure your slices do not over lap or they will dry misshapen for some of the slices i carefully patted cinnamon on one side, the aroma of citrus and cinnamon, close to nirvana! *** source
And how about making some shrink dinks?  This site tells you how to do it.  Here are a few I made and used as stitch markers:

This recipe looks scrumptious!  Forget the calories and just make it.

Link up with Mr. Linky and show us what you like.  It could be something you have made, or just want to try in the future.  And remember to post the specific URL site below.

We look forward to seeing what you share!

Fun inspirations! I like to use Pinterest to file away the ideas I see that I would like to try.
