About Me

I am wife to my wonderful husband, mother to two adult children and Nana to one special granddaughter. I also share my heart and my home with several furbabies. Being creative doesn't come easily to me, but I love to try.

The Great Shrinky Dink Caper

This was my first attempt at using shrinky dinks with my Imagine machine.  The goal was to make "charms" for my granddaughter's crocs.  After wasting a whole sheet to determine what settings I needed to cut through the dang stuff (blade 6, pressure 5, multicut 5), I managed to cut out and bake the following four charms.  I learned that layers are not good.  This stuff gets really thick when baked.  I also learned that I need to find different jewelry hardware for these to work in shoes.  Oh well, it was a great creative learning experience and I hope to try it again soon.  The turtle and ladybug were from Walk in my Garden, the kitty from Best Friends and the teddy bear from Better Together.  Enjoy!
