Getting Back to Crafting

I spent close to two months away from doing any crafts. It feels good to get back to it; it’s been very calming. Here’s what I’ve been working on.

Sewing scrappy squares. Not sure what I’ll turn them into yet.
Shirt for my daughter. Iron on design that I painted.
My white shoes that were stained needed some color.
Just a little reminder for myself. “Take one step at a time”.
This was just delivered today. Now I can let my family know if I need help, and they won’t feel like they need to check on me so often. I didn’t like the plain white…maybe I’ll glue on gems instead?

I hope you are all having a great weekend.

With love,

Another Arts and Crafts Day

Our daughter has been a little apprehensive about going on vacation without us. She says she’ll miss us too much. I want her to go and have a great time. She’ll be able to swim, make sandcastles, and spend quality time with her grandparents. I thought that maybe making her a purse to take on vacation would help. I headed over to my mom’s house today, to spend some mom and daughter time, and paint the jean purse I made. It’s not done yet, but I think she’s going to like it!

See that iced coffee? That’s crafting fuel. Yummy!

Now, I just need to figure out something to make our son to take on vacation. I’m thinking a drawstring backpack. We’ll see.

And then there’s this quick little craft: one of those countdown paper chains.

I made it because I’m anxious for the procedure, but also because my inner child still likes playing with paper and glue. Who am I to argue?

Wishing you all a great night/day.

With love,
