New *KITS* and a Candle Call-Out

Yahoo !! For some days, I have been thinking of adding *kits* to my Etsy shop ( http://www.artsychaos.etsy.com/ ). Just some fun and easy options for those of us who feel lazy sometimes, yet still want to be able to give a handmade keepsake to a friend or loved one with our OWN touch to it. Voila !! I've been working on the elements for these kits for a few days and got the formula down. The kits currently in the shop are "Thinking of You" and "Diva". I've got gardening, pets, little boys and other themes in mind and in the works !! P.S. The cute kid on the example finished kit is my ever-so-handsome oldest son.

I also wanted to give a shout out to Etsy seller, Aquadoo (http://www.aquadoo.etsy.com/) who sells wonderful scented candles ! If you are a fan of candles that smell throughout your home, this is the place to get them. I have one and it smells great !

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. :)

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
