It's been a busy week.
I think I've been saying that a lot lately!
I have tried to squeeze crafting time in every day, even if it was right before bed.
After all, it's that time of the year!
I am once again crafting my lavender filled bags….I have enough lavender to fill a few dozen with bath teas, sachets, and dryer fresheners. I'll do my best to list this weekend on Etsy. If interested, just shoot me a note and I will reserve for you!
Please forgive a combination of Instagram and phone photos. That's what time has permitted.
Many of you have sent prayers for my husband who has returned to the hospital for a third time. He had ANOTHER stent put in today. We are hoping that this now solves all of his problems. Poor guy….it has been a stressful few weeks to say the least. Thanks for the kind words! 2013 has been a bizarre health year. My hysterectomy and recover during January and February. Stormy's illness this summer, and now K. I am confident 2014 will bring us health and happiness!
I brought this geranium to my classroom. It was almost dead outside, as we had had 20's and 30's. It is now thriving on my classroom windowsill. I love to bring what I can to school and then take it back home the following spring.
Last night I ran home from the grocery store, changed quickly for my son's golf banquet, and then ran outside to gather an armful of twigs. I have had it on my mind that I wanted to make twig stars.
I am glad I took 3 minutes to gather them last night. It is raining today and the wet twigs would have been messy, and wouldn't have taken the hot glue. They are so much fun to make. I made a few that I wasn't so happy with, then I drew a big star on a piece of parchment, and laid out the sticks. Success!! Fun, free, rustic….my favorite!
I was also sorting through some old china….to keep or to list…hmmmmmm.
And I stamped a bunch of cotton ribbons…
Use them as garlands, wrap up brown paper packages, tie around a bottle of wine….so many options….
I love the cobalt against the barn red….wish I could keep it outside!!
