April Fool!

“And I love silliness. . .and crafts.
Which is why I knit and make jewelry and other things.”

Like today.
Today is April Fools’ Day.
And, today is my birthday. Or, as I prefer to view it, today is the 20th Anniversary of my 21st birthday! That’s right. . .and it’s waaaaay more exciting than. . .say. . .being birthday number four-one. So, that’s how I am looking at it.

To celebrate this big anniversary, I had a big day planned. It’s a Wednesday, so I am off work, and so I will clean the bathroom and vacuum the carpets and wash a load of bath towels and do the dishes and think about giving the dog a bath. Then. . .

Will she knit? She loves to knit!
Will she bake? She loves to bake, AND she loves cake!
Will she make something for her etsy shop? She loves etsy!
Will she watch Little House reruns? She loves classic TV!

Nope, none of those things today. Today, I planned to play with polymer clay for the first time! And play I did. . .here’s a photo of the finished product:
Tiny sweaters and socks and mittens. . .aren’t they adorable?! I thought, here’s a craft I have not tried, I wonder if I can make things. . .tiny things. . .tiny knitted things. . .in clay. . .and, viola! I can! Now, what to do with them? Well, I suppose I will leave that for my next post! In the meantime, thanks for stopping by. Are you having fun today?


  1. Geez is there anything you can't do?!?!?!

    Those are adorable! I hope you are having a fabulous birthday!

  2. Those are seriously cute. Absolutely darling! I am beyond impressed by the detail you were able to put into them. You must have very steady hands!

  3. Happy birthday a little late! April 1st was my younger daughter's due date. (She came late, just like all my kids.)

  4. Happy belated birthday!For many years whenever I was asked my age I'd respond "Late 20s". They'd say "HOW late?" I'd say "Pretty late, past midnight". They'd say "Really, how old are you?" I'd finally give in and say 20-18 or what ever added up to my age, give or take. SOOO. Happy 20-21st Birthday To You!
