99 Creative Moon Projects

Continuing our 99 Creative Project Series, I thought I'd bring together moon Ramadan projects.

The Islamic calendar is lunar based, so the moon plays a significant roll in the religion.

The crescent moon and star emerged into popular use during the 19th century as a symbol for the Ottoman Empire. It is now on half a dozen country flags.

Over the years, I have made several moon crafts here on the ACraftyArab blog. I have collected them below, along with a few others, so that you can enjoy making some creative moon projects to appreciate our majestic satellite.

I have included images from my crafts, but do not have copyright on other images. For visuals of these tutorials, feel free to visit Crafty Arab 99 Creative Projects.

Happy Earth Day 2015

Happy Earth Day from A Crafty Arab
Happy Earth Day!  I woke up this morning to blue in my sky and was excited that Seattle weather crew were wrong about their predictions.

After a weekly walk at a local park with my walking partner, and another walk when I got home because it was too hard to resist the sunshine, I went outside to garden. My To Do list can wait. Who knows when the free vitamin D will show up again!

I took the photo above by putting my camera on the ground and shooting up.  Just a reminder to stop every once in awhile and notice the tiny details that you might not see from above.

What are you doing today to celebrate Earth Day?

99 Creative Sheep Projects

Sheep play an important role in Islamic heritage; our prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was a shepherd.

According to our holy book, the Quran, when Abraham (pbuh) was about to sacrifice Ishmael (pbuh), a ram was sacrificed as a substitute.

Eid al-Adha is a major annual festival in Islam in which sheep (or other animals) are sacrificed in remembrance of this act. Eid Al-Adha is due to occur on September 24th, 2015.

Sheep are also occasionally sacrificed to commemorate important secular events, such as births or weddings, in Arab cultures.

Over the years, I have created several sheep posts here on the ACraftyArab blog with my daughters and amassed a number over on my Pinterest board.

I have collected them below, along with a few others, so that you can enjoy making some creative sheep projects too.

I have included images from my crafts, but do not have copyright on other images so I am unable to add them below. For visuals of all these tutorials, feel free to visit Crafty Arab 99 Creative Projects.

99 Creative Mosque Projects

99 Creative Mosque Projects by A Crafty Arab
Mosques are religious centers for Muslims.

These brick and mortar buildings are very important to our community in more ways then one.  Our places of worship are where we go to pray, meet, talk, learn, visit, laugh, meditate, read, listen, and primarily get closer to Allah and His word. 

They are most special to us on Fridays, because that is our day of worship, known as Jumu'ah.  This day is when we gather together in congregation and listen to a lecture designed to empower us.

Over the years, I have made several mosque crafts here on the ACraftyArab blog. I have collected them below, along with a few others, so that you can enjoy making some creative mosque projects to appreciate these majestic holy places.

Update - 4/15/15 - I have created a Pinterest board to showcase all the above projects, please give it a follow here.  Also, while I was creating the board, I realized I had accidently listed a drawing project twice. This has been corrected.
