I know Spring is struggling to get here. Honestly I have been okay with that. It has given me time to complete a list of projects/crafts that I had wanted to do, before the beautiful weather played a siren song to lure me outdoors. And besides a card I have been working on I have done pretty well completing said list.
I did wrap the wreath ( the cheapest I could find, a straw one) with inexpensive green yarn before I wrapped the yummy yarn around it. It saved on cost, I didn't even use the whole skein of fuzzy yarn, so I have some for other projects, yay.
My next project was a bigger one. It was redecorating my craft space. If any of you have been here before you know that it was a Twilight corner. That being over and done with, at least for me, I was ready for something fresh. So down it all came, sniffle sniffle.
I have always loved the pink and orange combo, at least since High School when I really wanted to make a prom dress with the combo, but didn't. And the colors seem to fit the trends right now so that is where I went, with a pop of blue. I had to work with the green walls because I was not up for the undertaking of repainting an entire room. I am 7 months pregnant people.
I am missing two pictures, thus the empty corners, because I used two canvas' on messups. And have to purchase two more and finish the collage.
I used the 6x6 canvases from Close To My Heart as well as their Claire paper packet.
I also (which I forgot to take photos of) recovered two old pillows with some fun fabric I found with pink and orange in the pattern. I also used the same fabric, to basically make a "pillowcase" in which I used to cover one of the vinyl chairs in the room. It just added a bit more color to the room.
These two projects are done by two wonderful women. My sister Jaime made this adorable owl mobile for my baby's room. Her new favorite medium is felt, is has made some really adorable thing from this unsuspecting material. LOVE it.
My sister-in-law Arielle sewed this owl, again for the upcoming baby's room. He is so fun! She incorporated some material that was handed down from a grandmother (or great). It is the orange patterned material on the bottom and wings. So crazy fun.
You can see how spoiled I am, cute stuff and I didn't have to make it ;)
Well thanks for indulging me on my craft download. Don't expect much for a few months. Baby is due in May and I don't see myself in the craft corner much, outside in the garden if children permit. So have a great spring! If you have any questions please post them or comment on my facebook page and I will get back to you!
Keep at that creative itch!
