My Halloween Wreath!!

I'm so excited!!! Woooo! Party over here! Party Over there!

Why am I so excited you ask? Because! That's why! Uh duh! hahaha Just kidding. I'm excited because it's officially FALL! AND!AND! Actually starting to feel like it here. Well, in the morning and at night at least mid day is a nice warm out. But not a sweltering heat that you are like " OMG it's so hot out I can't breath! GAHH!" Yeah it's not quite that bad anymore! Wooo YEAH!

Okay I'm done cheering all your face now. Oh but I am very happy to share my Halloween wreath I made. Loving it soooo much! You are probably wondering why  I am decorating my door for Halloween in September and my answer is, because why not?!!. :)

 I even made a video on how I made it. Ooooooo didn't see that one coming did you? Yes? Darn okay.

You want to see some pictures? Yes? GOOD! There's only a few so enjoy!

I feel like I'm yelling a lot today(in a good way).... OH WELL!


I took these two on my phone the rest with my camera. I got a little decorating done on the inside as well but I'm not going to show that. Not yet at least. ;)

 Close up

And here's a rare site to see. My craft area clean. I  snapped this picture before I started working on my wreath. I was trying to actually have room to work and move I knew this would be a rare time for it all to be clean so I thought eh why not take a picture. hahaha :)

Oh I forgot to mention everything except for the foam ring (from Hobby Lobby) and the tulle (From Jo-Ann's) I got from the Dollar Store! Oh wait I had the paint and goggly eyes on hand  but you can get those from just about anywhere.  So I paid roughly 10 or 11 total for this wreath!! yeah! WOOO!
More yelling!! hahaha! :)

Michael's Haul!

 Hello there!
  This is my first ever haul video and I am excited about it! I debated on putting on Sew Crazy About Crafting -- the blog-- or not but in the end I decided I would.  I know I have been doing a lot more video's than blog post but I'm trying to keep up with both I love my blog I will keep up with both as best as I can.

But! I have exciting news!!  ( Well, exciting for me at least!) Next week --hopefully if things go as planed-- I will be starting my Halloween tutorials!!!!!! Woooooooooooo! I'm so excited. If you don't already know Halloween is one of my favorite time's of the year.

I don't necessarily hate summer I just ..... I just don't like that it's so hot. You're probably thinking "well that's stupid it's summer, it's going to be hot, DUH!"  I just don't handle the heat well. Not saying I get sick or whatever from it, it's just really hard for me to get cooled off once I get hot. I can warm up in the winter just fine ( as long as the heat is not blowing right in my face lol) and be a nice medium warm. If that makes sense?.... I don't know .

ANYWAY! FAAAAAALLLL  need's to come faster!.... Like now. Right now... come on...

No? Okay.... :(

Well, here is the video. Hope you like it! Remember to Thumb's up AND Subscribe if you Want to see more!! If you can't see the video below click here or search for Sew Crazy About Crafting on You Tube! Enjoy!

Have a wonderful day!

DIY: Genie's Lamp From Disney's Aladdin (Part 3)

Hello all!! This is my final video in my 3 part Disney series. While I'm sad my first ever series is over I'm very happy this video is done and out of the editing process. Everything imaginable  happened that could happen when editing a video.I had to go through the editing process 7 --YES 7--  times. I would get started on my video and then about half way through it would lock up, shut down, exit out completely, or  just pain not work right! Plus more!

Anyway, I chose to do this in my last installment because with the recent death of one of my favorite actors (Robin Williams) it was really hard for me to sit down and make this after that. You might think it's silly but it really shocked me when it happened. It was hard for me to go back and find the Aladdin music from the movie to put with this. ( If you are still heart broken too just mute it please :) )

 I'll move on to the actual video now. I forgot to put in what kind of gold clay I used which was, Sculpey III Gold  You don't have to put all the triangles like I did, I just wanted to get it as close to the movie as I could. Obviously, I skipped out on the triangles on the bottom.... I got frustrated okay. DON'T JUDGE ME!

So, if you like this and want to see more give this is a thumbs up and Subscribe to My Channel( Click the link)

I hope you enjoyed this!
Have a wonderful day!
P.s. I will be linking up to most of these  Link Parties. I also was not compensated for this post or any of my Disney series post. It was just a lot of fun! (Update 9/17/2014: I had to remove the music I originally put on my video. Sorry if there is only one song. I don't understand how to add more through their music remover thing on You Tube.)

DIY: Ursula Necklace( Disney 3 Part Series:Part 2)

Sorry it's late! So unlike me, I know! (Insert laughter here 'cause I suck at making post on time. I do try though!)  One thing after another--All good things though!!!-- has led me to not being able to do Part 2 on time.

Anywhoodle, I decided to do Part 2 on Sew Crazy About Crafting because there are so many of these types of tutorials on You Tube. I actually had the idea on how to do it for awhile now but when I looked it up that I saw that it had already been done....alot. So that's why I went ahead and put Part 2 here! Part 3 --like Part 1-- will be on both Sew Crazy About Crafting (The Blog) And my You Tube Channel Sew Crazy About Crafting (Click the link to check that out and subscribe!)

Again this is obviously inspired by Disney's The Little Mermaid. If you haven't seen the movie then you are missing out! Even if you're not 5! Hahaha  Like I stated in Part 1 I really am still a big kid at heart!

This is actually pretty simple tutorial. 


What you'll need:
  • Gold polymer clay  
  • Clay tools( I used a large ball tool and needle tool)
  • Head pin
  • wire cutters 
  • round tip jewelry pliers
  • Black ribbon
  • Jewelry closures (any style you prefer)
  • Hot glue gun and 1 glue stick
  • oven to bake your piece in


 Taking little a less then half the 2oz block of clay condition it and then roll it in to a ball.

 Now make a cone shape.
Large ball tool I used that green too there to on the side but I don't know that it's call and it the only picture I have of it.
  I took my large ball tool and hollowed out the large end of the cone. You don't have to do this step. I did it because I thought it would look cool and I'm weird so there's that, too. Even out the cone as best as you can.
 Now on the smaller end take you head pin with the flat end and roll it in the end. ( I have never had good luck with eye pins they always fall out.)

Cover it up but do lose the curl. From here you are going  to roll it up to the bigger part of your cone ( like a snails shell)
 Looks kind of like a French Horn (Band geek all the way hahaha)
 If you kind of smushed your middle swirl you can take your needle tool an carfully redefine it.
 Now take your needle tool and carefully make three lines in the larger part of the cone. Try not the make indents on the other side of your clay where your swirl is.
I adjusted my head pin in the back and added more clay for support for it. 

Now Bake!

 Cut you wire

 Make a Loop.

 This is the ribbon I used. its 1/8 in x10 yards.Measure out how big you want your necklace and add an inch. The best way to do this is to string the shell on the ribbon and then hold it up around you neck and see where you want it to sit at.
These are the closures I got.
 These are the ones I used.
 Now if you already strung the shell on the ribbon all you have to do is put one end of the ribbon through on end of the loop on the closures. If not string the shell first and then do all that :)
 Put a tiny drop of  hot glue one the ribbon and press the end into it.
 Careful it will be hot!!!! I used a piece of plastic to push down so it get a firm hold.
 Repeat to other side. Cut or pull of any stringy bit you have left. Let cool completely. I then add a thin layer of hot glue over the top so it will help it stay in place. Let cool again.
 Now Wear it!

I'll admit at the age of 26 I might be a little to old to wear this.
 But Emma's not! She loves it! I did have to adjust the ribbon for her but well worth it!

Also, I totally did not plan the polka dot outfits. I took these picture on two different days and the one of Emma are from my phone.The blue one I'm wearing is actually a This-to-That that's coming up after my Disney Series. Little sneak peak there! :)

Well ,I hope you enjoyed this! I had a lot of fun making it! Don't for get to Check back in for Part 3 and Check out my You Tube Channel!

Have a wonderful day!

P.s.I have not been compensated for this Disney Series and I will be linking up to most of these link parties!
