Lately I have been sooo into crafts.
I think it is partially because I don’t really go out with friends so the time I have at home I don’t want to spend all of it at my computer or in front of the TV so I workout a lot and paint and practice, but there is still a ton of time!
To be productive, I have started to knit again. I have some knit headbands that I have made and LOVE. Some with bows, some with flowers. I have also been looking into remaking clothes out of old clothes. I really need to learn how to use a sewing machine though. We’ll see how that works out.
Last night I started making a bowl out of rolled magazine papers. When I get home tonight, I am going to finish it up and see how it turned out.
I just love making things and having pride in what I’ve made. I’ve found a ton of cute things I could do for when I get married to save money and still have a beautiful reception. 🙂
I will post some pictures when I take them of the crafty things I am doing. I get a lot of my ideas from Pinterest.com. It is an AMAZING site that I am totally in love with now. By the end of this year, I will be so well dressed, organized, and decorated. So when I move out I will have a ton of seasonal decorations, organization and wicked cute clothes. If all goes well. :-p.
My hope is to make most of my Christmas presents this year. That way I will save money, and each gift will be customized.
List of things to make so far:
-Holder/hanger for necklaces out of knobs
-Knit ball light fixture
-t shirt scarf braid thing
-Pillow case skirt
-tshirt cowl neck dress
-Paper Christmas ornaments
-Foam pink wreath
-Toilet paper wall decoration
-Accent Pillows… so many pillows
More to come!!!
I just need to find some time when my mother is free and willing to teach me how to use the sewing machine.
