Hello Lovely Crafter,
Welcome to week 2 of our Make It Monday show and tell.
Have you been busy making, baking, growing or sewing?
I had to move out of the craft room and turn it back into a bedroom as we had guests for a few days. I just spread out over the kitchen table, like I used to before Hannah moved out and I had a craft room, so I could keep working on my list.
And then it all came to a halt, and not much was done, but every little thing adds to the present box and gets me ahead with gifts and household needs.
This past week I cut some little treat boxes on the Scan and Cut, to use for little Valentine's Day treats. We don't normally make a fuss of this day on the calendar, but this year I think we all need cheering up and a little something special after the trials and struggles of the last three years. Closer to the date I'll either made some chocolates or find something on sale to put in them.
I learned a new crochet technique? pattern? while I had to just sit. It makes pot holders.
I printed off some free sentiments from Shabby Art Boutique ( one of my favourite resources for ideas and free embellishments and ephemera) and cut them out using the Scan and Cut. While I was sitting I cut some inserts for coloured card bases, ready to use during the year.
Picked lots of cucumbers and zucchini from the garden, and continued to put strawberries and raspberries in the freezer.
Worked on my lists for the next week, month and the rest of the year.
Went to a card class on Friday, but wasn't able to stay the full time. I did get some great ideas for new card layouts and practiced a stamping technique that's going to save a lot of money and extend the use of my stamps, and I met some lovely new people.
What did you make, bake, grow or sew last week?
