My Next Project

Standard

CIMG1342So I am tackling yet another hubcap.  I am addicted to them and I really enjoy the challenge of painting.  This hubcap is the first one I will be painting with the car logo on it.  It’s a Subaru hubcap and below is my inspiration for painting.  The Subaru rally car!  I have never painted a car before so this will be a good change and I look forward to trying to capture this car!  Check out my other hubcaps here:

On this glorious Saturday, I received new knitting needles and lots of “sweatshirt” yarn.  It’s a funny material, but I can’t wait to try and make a sweater out of it.  I also plan on starting my last scrimshaw piece doing the silhouette of a crane.  And, I am itching to bake some sort of chocolatey dessert.  There are just too many things I want to do!  Hopefully I have some sort of creative product to post to you all tomorrow.  Stay crafty:)

Paintin’ and Craftin’

Standard

CIMG1338I’m not really sure where this came from, but I was walking through the craft store and saw these cheap, little $1 containers and I thought I could decorate it into something nicer.  With is almost being the end of summer, I have a couple of thank you gifts I need to give and this is looking like the perfect box!  Only thing is I love chickadees and don’t want to part with it now.  That is always my biggest problem – I never want to part with my work!

This little project took me a only a day to complete.  I am proud of myself for working that quickly!  (I’ll admit, I’m a pretty slow painter/crafter/drawer).  Best of all though, it’s Friday!  Happy Friday everyone and I hope you have a great start to your weekend:)

Domestic Diva Day

CIMG1276It has been a couple of months since I have even picked up my knitting, but I decided to get back into it this morning.  I finished my patterned scarf first; which was a project I started about four months ago.  It always feels good to complete another project:)  Then I started knitting these little leaves experimenting with my different sized needles I just received.  They are quick and easy to make and I have already done two!  Now I just need to think of a project to incorporate them in because they are pretty cute.  Now i am going to do a little advertising for the site I found these knitting patterns on – Ravelry.com.  I am still kind of a beginner knitter, so having access to all of these patterns is fantastic.  I only just signed up and I am in love with the free patterns they offer!  If you’re a knitter, you should definitely check it out.  So many projects… so much potential… so little time haha.

And to add to the morning productiveness, I have cleaned, cooked, and baked already.  Not too shabby for a Saturday morning!  Hope you all have a great start to your weekend.

Gettin’ Crafty

Standard

As a part of this blog, I am aiming to try a bunch of different crafts.  Two ideas I have for the near future are making homemade cards as well as bookmarks.  I just discovered the amazing potential of the local recycling center: supplies for free!  It is encouraged to take what you will use and after this first experience, I will be back for more for sure!

Crafting Materials - It's a start!

If you have a recycling center near you, check it out!  Above is the start of my crafting stash.  Hopefully over the next couple weeks I can build up my materials.  Time to start getting crafty!  Here is a little bit of what I have done so far:

They are nothing special, just starting off simple.  I didn't have a lot of time today, but it was fun:)
