Refreshing Trip

Well now that I had 9 days in AZ to clear my mind and maybe get the crafting bug to hit, I am still not in the crafting mood.....I wonder if it happens to other crafters! I have rearranged my craft room so that all the fabric, wool and other material things are on one side of the room and all the paper, paint, stickers, and dye cut machine are on the other side. I do feel more organized with everything but just can't seem to get into creating something. I did go to the library the other day for story hour with my grandkids and did come across some inspirational craft magazines that I could check out. I haven't been to the library in awhile so I forgot you could check out magazines! Now manybe I won't be so tempted to buy them when I can check them out for free. I even had my 7 year old granddaughter Katelyn draw some things for me to inspire me to get off my butt and create. I have been teaching her how to embroider and she is making herself a pillow with a squirrel on it. I told her to enter it into the county fair this year. She thought that was a great idea. I think the key right now with snow on the way, cold outside and winter just dragging on is to just sit down and start.......I will keep you posted. Rene

New IPad Sleeves

So since the guys are watching the Super Bowl, I decided to list a few new items that I have come up with. These are IPad sleeves that are made with chunky yarn to protect it. I just discovered this chunky yarn as I have always used baby yarn or regular yarn. I would like to make some other things with this kind as it works up really quick. I hope you enjoy this new creation.

Better late than never!

Well, what can I say....I guess I'm not very good at keeping a blog! I know it's been a long time since I posted anything and boy things have been busy. I just reviewed my last few entries and realized that I am going to AZ again in a week. This time I am flying and going for rest and relaxation, I am not sure how much relaxing I will get with my parents, who are in their 70's and ALWAYS on the go, go, go down there. They make me tired just listening to what they do during their winter get-aways. My crafting has been slow this year, but I did manage to get in a nice big craft show with my daughter, we even had a new granddaughter January 1, 2012. (our 7th) She was even named Emily RENE......and with still doing daycare for alot of them during the week I am always busy. I am hoping that I can get back into managing the blog and my two sites again this year, so hopefully you can all encourage me. Until next time.....Rene
