Saturday afternoon was spent painting a bag of wooden apples I picked up the the Thrift Shop several weeks ago. The weather was cloudy and dreary...a perfect time for a creative pick-me-up. The boys helped me create some very life-like pieces of fruit. They might need a little touch up and then a spray of matte finish clear coat.
My plan is to get them finished this week and put into a basket that (I hope) will really show them off.
Have you seen the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine? I mean have you really seen it? She has converted an attic into one of the COOLEST craft spaces. This is stuff that dreams are made of. Oh. My. Gosh. This is what I want my corner of the basement to look like (well...sort of). To have a place to go and create. That's my goal.
It's a good thing. The latest issue came in the mail today and craft maven is on the cover.
Wow! What a wonderful place to spend hours and hours and hours. Dreaming. Designing. Creating. In other words: A little bit of heaven.
Staying organized. The Martha Stewart way. I really like the green too.
More tools of the trade. I'm just a bit jealous. ;-)
Stay tuned. My dad is going to help me get my craft space built in the next few weeks. It's been in my head for a long time. He helped figured out what lumber I would need early this spring/summer. Now it's time to bite the bullet, pull out the checkbook and make a trip to Lowe's. I'll keep you posted. My goal is to have it ready so that I can start making Christmas gifts. (For THIS Holiday season, not next year!!). It won't be a MSL Production. But it's gonna be good. I promise!
Ok guys. Here it is: Crafty Dad's attempt to knit. It's slow going, but I'm beginning to get the hang of it. I feel very, very clumsy with the two needles. (A single crochet hook seems so much easier...)
I need to watch and re-watch my knitting video. Tension is a major issue with me. (Both the tension of the yarn and tension in general) LOL! But I shall overcome. I shall become a knitter. I shall. I shall.
It was hotter than H - E - Double Hockey Sticks on the way home tonight. And humid too. The worst it's been all summer. So...the A/C was on to the maximum, the fan was kicked up, and one of my favorite radio stations played in the background.
