Almost every parent that has elementary and middle-school aged kids has at least heard of a Rainbow Loom. My two youngest boys received them for Christmas and love them. Coming up this weekend, I will feature a project that uses an empty oatmeal can and solves a Rainbow Loom problem at our house. Check back this Sunday to check out this week's project!
When I decided to start my own crafting blog, I went through a ton of possibilities for my first project. First, I had to ask myself what type of craft did I want to do. Scrapbooking? Cardmaking? Re-doing a piece of furniture? Knitting? And then it hit me... I craft for the same reason that many of you probably also do; because I like to make new things that I can use around my house or give as a gift. So, after checking my Pinterest (I'm a total addict) craft board, I decided to work on a project that I had seen some time ago.
Being on a very strict and tight budget, I plan out meals at least a week in advance. This stops the extra trips to the grocery store; only allows me one day per week where I'm pulling the hair out of my head trying to decide on meals instead of daily. And lastly, and perhaps most importantly this project will end the constant, "Mom, what's for dinner tonight?"
Anyways, let's get started....
I found my inspiration for this project on Pinterest. I tried to link to the original site, but apparently the site has been blocked and I am not able to give credit to the original idea. The idea was a basic 12"x12" frame with scrapbook paper behind the glass with stickers for the days of the week. Very cute, and pretty basic. While I don't knock the idea; I love to embellish my projects and add my own unique touches to all of my work (some unintentionally :) ). And away we go!...
I love crafting. There, I've said it. I also have an addiction. Crafting. I love to learn how to make new things, use new techniques and of course; try out all of the new products! I have tried everything from scrapbooking to knitting and floral design to sewing.
My hope is to provide a place where my fellow crafters can learn, share new ideas and possible find inspiration to create their own projects. Not every idea is always a success and I post those too. My hope is get ideas and help for my own projects and to save others from their own "crafting nightmares". Yes, I have had many. Many of my adventures will be new to me and others will working on an old technique. I'm not a professional at all; I'm just a woman with a undying love for all things crafting.
I hope to post a new project weekly. I will try my best to give directions and pictures. My blog is sponsored only by my own wallet and passion for good deals and great crafts.
All my projects will be open for comments. If anyone has a question, or would like to suggest a craft for a future post; feel free to contact me through the e-mail page.
I hope y'all enjoy my blog as much as I look forward to this adventure!
