Time for a Wrap

Hi!  Welcome to Scrap and Wrap my favourite pastime when I can escape life’s realities and be in my Bliss either Scrapbooking or Wire Wrapping.

Today I’m going to be in the Island Made Gift Shop working on a new piece. It will probably have a piece of Cobalt Blue Sea Glass in it as this year I’m surprised by the number of people coming into the shop looking for Blue Sea Glass.   


Here are a few pieces of Cobalt Blue Sea Glass that I wire wrapped lately.  One of the sides of the Blue Sea Glass had a sharp edge on it so I softened it by making the loops of the wire wrap on the sharp side hiding it and smoothing it off.  Do you know how old blue sea glass is? Well depending upon where it came from either a Noxzema Jar, or Milk a Magnesia,  perhaps it was an old Vic’s Vapor Rub Jar, it all had to wash back and forth with the salt, water, rocks and sand to become rounded and smooth and most of it takes around 30 years for a good piece to become perfect.

Have you found any Blue Sea Glass lately? If so has it been larger than an eraser on the end of a pencil?  

If you have time for a wrap today we are offering classes during our regular business hours where you can stop by, pick a piece of sea glass from the treasure chest and I’ll teach you how to wire wrap your piece. If you have found that special piece you like, bring it along and wrap it as well.

See you soon,

Strawberry Craft Magnets

So the town of Stratford in PEI was having a Strawberry Social last Saturday and if you set up a craft table related around Strawberries you could sell your wears and goods at no charge for the table.  

I needed a Strawberry theme so I headed to the dollar store because I’m frugal and creative.  I found a bag of red peddles, a roll of magnetic strip, and one piece of green paper.  The total cost was $2.50 that’s frugal.

I also had many hair clips at home so I turned the red peddles into strawberries, put black dots on them, glued a piece of magnet to the back and used my cricut cutter to cut the top of the strawberry from the cricut cartridge FROM MY KITCHEN.

How do you like these Strawberries?

I known! not exactly scrapbooking but close.  I used a red and white checkered table cloth, turned strawberry flowers into strawberries….yup it was a pretty good day.  Oh I almost forgot, I also took my treasure chest of sea glass with me, yup – un- huh

This is the mother load, she was heavy

It was a great day! I had a chair set up and people stopped by sat down, picked sea glass and I taught them to wire wrap the full morning. This is my idea of going to work and having fun with what you do. 

Have a great weekend!
