An "Awesome" Craft

I signed myself up for the "Be Awesome" swap on craftster. The guideline? Just craft one awesome thing for your partner.

I was pretty stumped as to what to make until my partner sent me a message suggesting that I might make something that would provide magical inspiration. I sat myself down and made a list of things that inspire me and soon realized how many ordinary, everyday things were on that list. So, in the end I sent a wee magical house filled with everyday inspirations like ladybugs, stars and Popsicle sticks.



My partner is away for a few days but her package should be waiting for her when she arrives home. I'm so excited for her to get it. I'm really proud of this wee house and I hope she loves it to bits :)

P.S. For the curious, I did not make the house from scratch. It is a kit, the kind that you buy from a craft shop, that simply snaps together. It was great fun and I totally recommend giving it a try, once you get to the decorating it completely sucks you in.


  1. Wow!! Your swap partner is a lucky chica that's for sure!! I wouldn't want to give it away! :))

  2. Your swap partner is so lucky that I've turned peeping tom frog green over here. All the wee details are incredible. The pictures are inspiring enough on their own, I can't imagine what sort of magic the house itself has.

  3. You definitely fit the AWESOME bill! This house is so wonderful! It makes me want to try one of those kits. Very inspiring!

  4. I love it! It is so magical indeed! The details are perfect.

  5. Holy buckets... you (once again) have the luckiest swap partner ever! =D
    This will surely inspire her into magic. ^-^
    Itching to go poke about & see if I can find a snap together house too... Oh the fun!
