It is amazing what you can do when you aren't constantly online. These past few weeks have been filled with creativity and I thought some of these things were worth sharing. Guys! I'm blogging! This is an exciting moment haha!
Recently (read: today) I've been getting back into embroidery and cross stitch and its been bundles of fun. I'm still playing around but so far I'm starting off small with the arrow letters and the crooked heart.
There was an entire day where I didn't leave my house (except to make two trips to Home Depot) and all I did was scrapbook. I think I cranked out eleven pages, which for me is record breaking. Unfortunately this is the only page I've photographed, but if you are interested in seeing the other pages comment below and I'll do another post on my scraping adventures.
My camp friend, Hannah, makes these super coasters from those 16 cent tiles at Home Depot and I decided to try my hand at it. I've seen this craft circling around Pinterest for years, but it wasn't something I was interested in--until I saw Hannah's! She used adorable scrapbook paper and stamps and it inspired me to make some for some of my friends! Here are mine!
I get JoAnn's coupons sent to my phone (this is a slippery slope, beware signing up because you will find yourself buying more craft supplies than usual!) and I got one a couple weeks ago for 50% off one item. And the second I got that text I knew. I was finally going to get those giant cardboard letters! They are usually $10, but with the 50% off and my 20% off student discount, the letter was a steal. I modpodged pages from an old atlas and it gave it the best look. I finished the whole thing in the time it took to watch Donnie Darko. Let's just say, it was a good day.
And lastly, I've been making more bead necklaces! I still had a ton of beads that hadn't been painted and decided to give it a go. This is the easiest craft and its deeply satisfying! There's just something about wearing something you made that makes you feel all happy inside. Its true folks.
Well, until next time! I hope everyone makes something everyday! Its extremely gratifying.
