Gifts For Children

Anjeanette shows how easily you can make these personalized canvas’ using a picture. Given as a gift or just to add some additional style to their room. Any child would love being made into a star on their very own art work. I can see this working great for girls too. Think rock star. You know the girl with the microphone and a guitar? Like maybe Hanna Montana? Or how about making it a High School Musical theme? Ballerina, super hero, astronaut……I could go on but I don’t have to because you are already thinking of your own theme for a special child in your life. Go HERE for the tutorial.

Yep, Anjeanette did it again with this art tote. Ok so these fabrics are girly but the possibilities are only limited by the fabric selection at your local store. This bag is great not only for toting around art supplies when on the go. It will also hold favorite toys, snacks, clothes, library books and so much more. Stock up on markers and note books when back to school supplies go on clearance and make up a few of these bags. You are good to go for any child’s present. Is the artist a little more sophisticated and past using markers? How about colored pencils or sketching pencils and a pocket for an eraser? Go HERE for a fabulous tutorial.


Going to a Renaissance festival? Don’t want to buy an over priced headband? Does some one you know want to be a princess or a renaissance girl for Halloween? Just want to know how you get ribbon to curl like that? Then we have the tutorial for you! Go to see Rebecca’s tutorial.

Are you looking for a specific design on a shirt for a child? Can’t find it? How about making your own freezer paper stencil? It can be quite addicting to use freezer paper as a stencil. Just ask Anjeanette. She got the whole family involved. Check out this POST to find out how they did these fun t-shirts.
