So I've found my crafty mojo!
I keep my curriculum for the girls' school on a clipboard each week. What has been a totally plain and beyond boring clipboard. No more! A little paint, a little spray glue, an old map, some ribbon--and now it makes me smile!
I love maps.
(Making these is pretty simple. Paint the clipboard and let it dry. Find a map or some paper and cut it slightly larger than the surface to be covered. Spray glue on the back, fix in place. File the excess paper from the edges. Add ribbon.)
I've also made a couple more fabric pumpkins.
I wrote a tutorial about how to make these two years ago. So if you're new around here (or need a refresher), here it is!
There's also a really cool [not telling what] in progress for my sister, not to mention [not telling that either] that's done. A couple of [wouldn't she like to knows?] for my mother. And some [nope, that's a secret too] for some friends.
It's going to be a handmade Christmas, which is my very favorite kind.
Think it's because the basement is FINALLY in order. It's much easier to craft when the table is actually clear and you can see stuff. Who knew?!
Mom and I were talking the other day about crafting spaces. And while we'd both love something out of a magazine picture, it is nice to have a big, unfinished space where it's okay to spill paint on the floor or leave a project in process laying out.
If we ever finished our basement, I'm sure my space would end up smaller than this, and somehow I seem to use every bit of this space.
What about you? What are you crafting these days?
