Cute cloud and craft failure

I have been having fun with polymer clay lately. I made this little rain cloud hair clip the other day. It's fun just as a cloud but I decided to add three little "rain drop" beads. I think it makes it extra cute with them dangling from the rain cloud. This is going out to someone sweet with a couple other goodies.

Now presenting my CRAFT FAILURE

Ugh! One of my goals on this blog is to have fun crafty tutorials, and I was getting ready to present my first one. I was all excited to make Sidewalk Chalk using eggshells. I got everything ready, took lots of pictures and came out with this.  

Crunchy, crumbly, can't even draw with it sidewalk chalk.

I was having growing suspicions that this would happen after I had molded them together and let them sit to dry. I even tried to write with them and....Nothing happened at all, just crumble, crumble, crumble. So in the words of my two year old "oh problem"( he tries to quote "oh bother" from Winnie the Pooh)
Oh well back to the drawing board.

Crafty Love,


  1. Try try again! Great idea!

  2. I love that you are using your clay-forming talent to make adorable hair pieces and jewelry! I really like the rain cloud. Reminds me of home :o)
    Love you!
    Keep up the great work!

  3. I love the clip Danielle and I love that you are so daring with your crafts! I never would have thought to try to make sidewalk chalk! Go girl!

  4. I adore the rain cloud clip.
    It turned out beautifully!
    Love the sparkly clay and the rain drops.
    Now where's that headband with the clay rose? ;-)

  5. I hope the clip is coming to my house!!!
    Teehee... ;-D

    You are very clever and crafty, sis, and I'm so glad you are in my life!
