Pinterest is making me a craft junkie!!! i keep seeing all of these fabulous crafts to do and i just cant help myself!!! will someone take my computer, laptop, ipad and iphone away please???
yes, in case your wondering, im still into sewing.....but im also branching out into other crafting areas. wait till you see what i made today!
this is a necklace for a family member. HOW. CUTE . IS . THAT. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and a key chain for me. CHOOSE JOY! (that's my motto for this brand spankin' new year)
Harbor Freight has a great set of alpha stamps for like 10bucks! ive been on the hunt for these for a few weeks. long story short.....i got 2 wrong sizes today at michaels! 1/8 inch is perfect! (not the 1/4 or 1/16 at michaels.)
the washers are just your average-everyday washers from lowes. i found some simple necklaces on clearance at hobby lobby and some beads at michaels. Yeah, ive been all over this town today!
what do you think? it was definitely a quick project. the stamping is easy once you get it down. there are tutorials ALL OVER the blog world for these doodads. so i cant even link to any because i found like 278. (wee bit of an overexageration there).
after 6 lovely weeks off....minus the surgical procedure which started my "vacation".....i had to go back to work this past week. BOO HISS GAG! (yes im grateful for my job, but i loved being at home). after spending a lot of time healing physically and mentally (no stress) i decided to do a few things for myself to keep that good positive mojo going!
I started a Gratitude Journal on 1/1. Everyday I write 5 positive things i was grateful for that day. believe me, its not as easy as it sounds--LOL. but its a way to become more of a positive person. after 14 days of doing this, im already finding myself during the day thinking "yep, thats going in the journal". I CHOOSE JOY and it feels FANFREAKINTASTIC!
im sure some of you are wondering about the friday night sew in sign ups. if i can figure out that winky thing again, it will be tomorrow OR monday. ill be in charge this month because Heidi will be partying it up with her family. be sure and check back.... FNSI is in 6 days.
