just an update
I have a few projects I'm wanting to get to. I'm trying out a new scheduling technique soon that will hopefully get me into my craft room more often to feed my soul. I've been working a lot lately of self-talk and how crafting fits into my life. I have this feeling like I can't craft unless I am done with all the 'important stuff'. I'm working on that. Crafting is good for me in so many ways and I need to treat it like the valuable part of my life that it is. It is part of the 'important stuff'.
So what's on my list for the coming months?
Quilts for my girls! They moved into big girl bed a long time ago and they're still just using blankets from around the house. I can't find anything I'd like to buy so I decided to make them quilts that match their bedroom. I'll be shopping for fabric this week and hopefully can share a sketch/plan with you soon.
Project Life- I'm uploading pictures today and hope to get started on this year's PL soon. I'd like to have January done by the end of next week. That shouldn't be too hard because this year I've planned a lot more on combining weeks.
More scrapbooking- I have a stack of pages that I am ready to roll with, purchases done, pictures printed, etc...maybe I'll plan myself a little scrapbooking retreat in my office for a day.
Skirts and scrubs - I have an idea for my girls that involves bandannas to make skirts. I might move this one up on the list because I just heard their school will be doing a 'dress like a cowboy/cowgirl' day sometime this spring. They already have the boots, it'd be cute to make the skirts to go with them.
Also, I'd like to try custom making my husband a pair of scrubs for work. He has brands he loves but they always have one thing he'd like to change. I'd love to make him one pair that has all the features and fits he wants.
So that's it right now. There are, of course, a bazillion more things I want to make, but that's what I have narrowed it down to for the immediate future.
Oh! I also need to start thinking about Teacher Appreciation Week!
