I managed to get some afternoon craft time yesterday AND today (largely because I had a few orders to fill) and I’m just going to quickly share what I made as I won’t get time to blog these items individually.
First, I dropped in to Michael’s yesterday morning since we had to stop at the DIY store next door and I picked up some wool to make coffee cup cozies (still a work in progress so I’ll share at a later date), wool for a small throw blanket for our living room and I also scored a Cinch binding machine for $25!!! I also picked up some Valentine themed patterned paper, a stamp set, and a few mini pens. I did use the Valentine themed supplies to make these:
I had a complex order this weekend of a glittered wine glass and thank you card (complex because it’s a three-stage job and you have to wait for each coat to dry before you can move on to the next) so I made the card yesterday after glitter stage two and added the vinyl to the glass this afternoon. Pictures are not good but here you go:
Back of the glass (colour correction changed the tissue paper to this ugly beige):
Coordinating Thank you card (inspired by another card on Pinterest):
One more order I needed to knock out this weekend was a much easier project – a monogrammed mug. The only difficulty filling this order was waiting for Bowring to get the mugs back in stock:
On a sadder note, a Beagle Paws friend’s dog passed away last weekend and I really wanted to send her a personalized sympathy card so I made this early last week:
In between all this, I’m still making dishcloths as I find it relaxing and it also lets me watch a bit of tv on the week nights when I’m not feeling particularly creative. I don’t have a pictures to share but I’ve added a few colours. I probably have to stop making them for a bit as I’m just displaying them at work and have probably run out of customers!
Enjoy your week. May it be productive and creative.
