I really enjoyed participating in WOYWW a couple of weeks ago. The sweetest crafters participate in the sharing! Last week was super busy (ultimate frisbee playoffs, company visiting, hosting a crafty afternoon at my place, etc) so I could not participate...but I think I have time to pop in again this week. I will share what I am doing now and some other things that I did the past couple of weeks. Hopefully the post is not too long!
Here it is...my messy crafty spot. Right now I am working on a project for the blog hop with Quietfire and Walnut Hollow. I put a coat of antique white paint on the box and started cutting out my patterned papers.
Last time someone said they were interested in seeing what was in the basket on my desk. It is mainly my adhesives. You may wonder what the pretty fabric item is...
...my friend Janice's mom is an amazing sewer. She made this cute sewing kit/wallet for me. I store my pins in it.
Someone also asked what was in the metal container to the left of my desk. It is supposed to be a tea tin but I store my baby wipes in it.
One thing I did last week was organize my buttons. Very happy with the progress thus far! Some people may say you can never have enough buttons. Well, I realized I actually do have too many buttons and made 6 ziplock bags (!) full of buttons to give to my crafty friends.
This jar however was not sorted. It is special: a jar of antique buttons from my mom.
On Saturday, my friend Rebecca and I drove to Carsand Mosher (a crafty store a little less than an hour away) and picked up some goodies. Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs....
...dies and a stencil. Most of which was on sale!
And lastly a large Tim Holtz bag (50% 0ff!) that I plan on taking as my purse when I go to CHA in January. :)
Sorry for the long post! Had a lot to share! Thanks for popping in and I look forward to seeing your posts on WOYWW!
