craftgirl in progress

After searching through different projects at, I settled with my first craft project ever: the record bowl.

I preheated the oven to 200 degrees then I placed my dusty copy of “Mame” (featuring a young Angela Lansbury) on an overturned bowl which was on a cookie sheet so I could take it in and out of the oven easily. I slid it all into the oven and after five minutes, I took it out, flipped the bowl and record over and used the large bowl as a mold for the record bowl. The record was warm and soft as I pushed down, but hardened quickly so I popped it in again. Another try and it was perfect.

My apologies to any Angela Lansbury fans.

    Now that you’ve mastered the record bowl, how about the record purse??? (link). I have the illustrations somewhere on my hard drive if the text instructions don’t make any sense to you. Let me know.


  2. Or if crafting one doesn’t do it for you, there’s always music

  3. Thanks Lilly! I’m so addicted to craftgrrl! That record purse is awesome. I’m going to have to do that next, after I finish my record earing holder. Could you send me the text instructions?

    And thanks Joe for the link but making it myself gives me much more bragging rights than buying it online.
