~ new leggings to be released soon ~
So I have new Wednesday adventures and obligations. Traditionally, I reserve Wednesdays for cleaning & errands, studying, and catching up on tattoo drawings/ commissions. But it’s almost Spring, my seasonal depression seems to be shedding itself and I am craving more creative interactions. So why not take this time for some one on one #KAWAIIindaHood D.I.Y. with my niece, kawaii dreamer, and future role model, Ja’nai. I really owe her this time since I have promised it to her for months now, but I was too depressed to pick myself up by my boot straps and be colourful & upbeat for her. So I am happy she was more excited than not to hang out with Hello Kitty Imani (that’s her title for me LOL) and get creative!
MakeClay Charms Starter KitWe decided to play around with these polymer clay starter kits I found at 5 Below, for $5 and see what magic we could make happen. The kit is super! You get everything you’d possibly need (except an oven) to make 6 charms, including clay, a multi-use spatula, charm ringlets and closures, and an easy to follow instruction booklet. tip: If you come across this kit and curious about clay crafting, DO IT!!!!!! Whether you’re solo, with friends, or doing it with your kids, you won’t be sorry. ^^ Below, Ja’nai starts with a cupcake (she’s showing me how the pro’s do it) and ends up making … a donut. 🙈😹😬 But it looks tasty! Look at it ~
I took the easy way out & made a flower 😹Eventually, we ditched the instruction manual and did what felt good to us. Ja’nai is considering experimenting with some polymer clay rings for her life.
she made a thing. I made a thing. we’re proud of our things 😀Here are all of our crafts from the day. We have a long way to go before we look like we know what we’re doing, but we didn’t do too bad. What do you think?!
Of course, I got stuck with baking duties haha
We’re trying again next Wednesday~
Do you ever have a crafting bug?!
