Meet the Improved Craft Corner
I hate when a week goes by and i haven't written in my blog. Most of the time, it's because i'm too tired, don't know what to write, procrastinate, etc. but this time i was just too busy to steal time for my beloved blog.
I am in full force here with holiday gift-making. I have about 60% of gifts chosen and about 45% of them made. So i just have to keep going. Of course, as always, i get sidetracked. For instance, as a lover of mail (besides the regular shipment of bills), i was happy to come home to the pattern i ordered off EBay. I am obessed with capes and found the perfect pattern. I'm going to make the one on the right. So, i went out yesterday to find the perfect fabric to go with it. I'm calling this a holiday present for myself. The fabric is a wonderful barkcloth with a floral print that is just this side of being too much. In my opinion anyway.
The other great thing with this high-time of craft making is that i need to really organize my craft area. So, J and i problem-solved how best to update my craft corner that is located in our dining room. We seldom eat there - unless we're 'entertaining' our living room couch acts as a perfect eating area. Anyway, J put up some great shelves that now house my tins full of craft supplies. The corner is still a bit busy but we're getting there.
I wish i could share with you what i'm making, but i know some of my readers will be recipients of said gifts so i promise to share with you post Dec 27!
