Craft of the week

It seems the past few weeks I have been busy working on some kind of craft... so I decided to post some pics of my "busy" week(s). . .

Week #1: "Bible bag." I was needing a bag to carry my Bible and other "stuff" to Bible class and worship (so I can be hands free to chase Karsyn). I embellished a canvas bag (left) and then used the scrap fabric to make a matching bag for K (on right with the bow).


Week #2: "Coffee sleeves." I helped host a baby shower where we had a coffee bar. Having enough matching coffee cups was proving to be challenging, so I made little coffee sleeves to match our cute brown and green polka-dot plates. They turned out pretty cute and saved our little fingers from coffee burns.



Week #3: "Plants." I am always planting something it seems this spring. These are the cute little plants I put together... we'll see how long I can keep them alive (I seem to have trouble with indoor plants). I'll try to post some pics of my sweet outdoor beauties later.



Today's project: "Decoupage boxes." My friend Beth got me started with this fun little paper craft a while back. It's a great way to wrap cute gifts, organize stuff on a shelf, or to decorate with.

Oh my gosh - so cute! Once we get settled into the house I will get started on putting up my website...probably an Etsy store. Maybe you should get one too...or you can try it out by selling some of your stuff on mine. They are ALL so gorgeous! I'm impressed, but not surprised. :)
