Disney Party Invites

DisneyInvitePin

Hi friends! We have an exciting event happening this Saturday in One Artsy Mama land. Disney is giving us a chance to celebrate their newest program Disney Imagicademy and the arrival of their brand new app “Mickey’s Magical Math World“! We get to invite several of our little friends over to play some games, have some snacks, and most importantly, try out the new app! I (Erin) came up with this invitation design to set the mood for a fun-filled space-themed Disney party! (more…)

About Erin Kerst

Hi, I'm Erin, Amy's best friend and right hand gal, and writer of "Crafty Chaos". In my past life, I worked in a science museum, performing large scale science shows and writing children's programs, but now I'm rocking the stay-at-home mom thing with my blonde army (three boys, aged 1, 3, and 4). Throw in 2 dogs and 2 cats, and it's truly chaotic (but I wouldn't have it any other way!)

Unicorn Jewelry

Hey, friends! Have you ever heard the saying, “Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then, always be a unicorn.” I have a group of friends who totally identifies with that saying. This year, we exchanged names as Secret Santas and agreed that we’d specifically have a unicorn theme for our gift exchange; how fun is that? Here’s what I created for my partner.

Clay Snowflakes

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…Material of the Month! Today, I’ve got a fun and easy project for you that you can make with the kiddos: Clay Snowflakes.

snowflake

These are such fun to make, and just like real snowflakes, each one will be totally unique! Kids will love working with the clay and decorating their snowflakes however they like. You can hang them in the windows, from the ceiling, or just about anywhere you can imagine. Just think how pretty it would be to have a whole flurry of them hanging in a hallway! I’m over on Tampico’s blog this month sharing a step by step tutorial for how we made ours, so I’d love for you to stop by and visit for the full instructions!

Also, don’t forget about our Material of the Month contest! Send us photos of your clay projects and one lucky winner will receive a pack of Sculpey Soufflé clay along with a starter pack of tools!

Miniature “LOVE” Canvas Art

I’ve got a fun Valentine’s Day art project to share with you today that even your smallest crafters can do! If they’re 6 or older like my Little Crafter, they can handle the whole thing by themselves with just a bit of supervision, and if they’re smaller, they’ll still enjoy it with some more hands-on help.

Materials:
- Miniature canvas and easel
