A craft "To Do" list

   I spent some time playing around on Pinterest and found some projects I think I want to try.

   Well, I did some more house cleaning today…no crafting. Good news is “It’s Friday!”

   Well, I had grand plans to clean and organize a couple of closets today. I am maybe 75 percent done…okay, more like 65 percent…lol.

Great discoveries during a morning of yard sale shopping

   Whew! What a busy morning. My pal Jules and I hit the road before daybreak to visit some yard sales and moving sales. I want to show you, or brag about, my great finds!

Spring and summer mean yard prepared!

   The first day of spring has come and gone and I am ready for consistent pleasant weather so I can get up early and hit some yard sales.

What's up with this weather?

   Spring doesn't officially arrive until March 20. However, the weather seems to be a little confused lately.

A spring tease: Helpful links for yard, garden and allergies!

   The weather in my neck of the woods over the last few days has been very nice…bright sun, clear skies and the daytime temperatures in the 70s.

Cold, flu or allergy?

   I am struggling with what I think is a sinus issue, nothing too major but something that has me sneezing and suffering from pressure and pain behind my eyes.

Cleaning ideas on the Internet

   I’d love to show you some crafts today, but once again I let another project get in the way.

Have you found success on Pinterest?

   I have a question for all of the Pinterest users out there. Do you ever go back and make use of any of your pins?

My cat loves fleece

   First, I tried making a fleece blanket, but my cat Beau had other plans for the fleece.

So many buttons, so little time

   I have more buttons than I know what to do with. I think I have finally gotten to the point where I had better do something with them.

Waiting on fair and festival season

   Now that I have seen snow here at my southern home I am ready for spring and all that comes with it.

Breaking through the brick wall

   I had every intention to craft yesterday. Really, I did. But I ended up doing some genealogy research instead.

   Please excuse the cat lover in me and enjoy this collection of cat cartoons I gathered for this Caturday!

I keep adding to my stash. I need to pick up my crafting pace!

   I can only imagine what I could accomplish if my creativity was on the level of my love of visiting craft and fabric sales.

Five snow day craft ideas

   It’s just January and so far this winter has had everything from a polar vortex to southern snow.

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Southern snow and mountain memories

   You know, it’s funny how we sometimes want what we don’t (or can’t) have. In this case I am talking about snow.

Pretty dangle earrings

   Once again I covered myself in crafting supplies on my couch. This time I made some earrings.

Pretty in pink jewelry

   The cold weather has slowed down my crafting a bit. But every once in a while I will gather some supplies and settle into a “crafting nest” on my couch.

Five fun Valentine's Day boxes

   Do y’all remember making decorative boxes for Valentine’s Day? You know, those ones you would make for school when it was time to exchange Valentine’s Day cards.

Fancy paper clip bracelet

   Long back I picked up a little bag of fancy paper clips. I wasn’t sure what I would do with them, but for some reason I just had to have them.

Shades of pink for Valentine's Day

   I do enjoy making different types of jewelry. If I’m low on energy or motivation, though, I go to my favorite piece to make…the wire-wrapped cuff bracelet.

Sunday, January 19, 2014

What motivates you?

   Brain drain. Maybe that’s what I have. Or maybe I just needed a few days without crafting. Either way, once again I don’t have any handmade items to share today.

A do-it-yourself earring display

   I’m great at thinking of craft ideas or finding them on the Internet. In this post I will share an earring display I made after gathering many ideas on Pinterest.

Seeking suggestions for using a decorative dish and colorful glass

   Well, let’s see. I had to run an errand to get cat litter and my car just happened to stop by a couple of craft stores. Funny how that happens.

Still stuck on display ideas

   For this to be a craft blog I sure haven’t shared many creations over the last few days, have I?

Freehand wire bracelet

   I really like working with wire. Sometimes I like to work freehand to see what I can come up with.

Too much strength for a woven bracelet

   The crafting from my kitchen bar had been going very well…until I messed up a bracelet I was working on with what I can only guess was my brute force strength.

   It’s an orange kind of day. Tonight is college football’s Discover Orange Bowl, and it will feature the orange of the Clemson University Tigers.

Resolutions or a plan of action?

   I have all kinds of ideas floating around in my head for what I want to accomplish with my crafting and blogging in this new year.
