Craftstory: Cork Critters


Craft projects, as we all know, take time and talent to accomplish.  

Some people have the impression that making crafts necessitates a big budget to make the outcome more attractive.  Some think that one needs a lot of practice just to make something that of value.  Others think that you must have a lot of passion or a cause to create the "heart"-work.

One young hobbyist didn't need to spend a lot to make her projects.  She just grabbed what was available at their home to make her critters.


The young crafter Yanna's family would regularly have thanksgiving prayers at their home and one of the symbols of celebration is a bottle of wine which the whole family would share.  Seeing all the cork from the bottle, Yanna had an idea to make some Cork Critters.

For safety, Yanna's mom would help her cut the cork but everything else was Yanna's design.


See a smiling Ant.


Meet her first creation, a cute Kitty.


Let your imagination ride away with the Horse.



Here's Yanna's delightful duck with pistachio nut shells for feathers.


Here is 8-year-old Yanna posing with her Cork Critters.

Here is Yanna with her growing collection of Cork Critters. 

Getting her inspiration from the books she reads, she brings the characters to life!  She never ceases to amaze her friends and family with her ideas!

"...the work of their hands brings them reward."
- Proverbs 12:14

*We love inspiring you with creative crafters like Yanna so you too can start working on a masterpiece all your own.  If you have a craft idea or project you wish to share with our readers and e-mail subscribers, you may e-mail us at info[at]papemelroti[dot]com.

Strong Soul Food


Have you had your share of soul food for today?

Here are some bite size sayings that talk about STRENGTH, not physical, but spiritual strength.  May they feed and fill your soul today.


Sometimes we focus too much on what we see.  Is our hair alright?  Is our teeth all white?
But we should know where to start... how's the strength of our heart?


Do we shy away from people or things that test our strength?  Do we ever venture out of our comfort zones?  Stepping outside our little worlds can open up a whole new world of possibilities.  How about a little adventure?


Life has its own share of storms.  Are you in one now?
We keep on trying to go higher, farther and taller when all we need is to look down and see how stronger and deeper our roots are.


Is something telling you you can't do it?   Believe you can, because it's true.



Strength, faith and courage are all within reach.  Look to the Source.

Have a strong soul day!
