AFTER I cleaned for a couple of hours (lol), I did some hand sewing (mending). Now I am going to look for some embroidery inspirations in anticipation of Christmas gifting.

Working on my latest brainstorm for DM birthday. She is always asking for cards for her friend that makes cards for her so I am making 6 cards for her and I'll make a box to hold them. Completed 4 of 6 so far and I have the design for the other two.

Birthday present solved!

I worked on my wolf cross stitch this morning. Hoping this afternoon to get some time to pick out a crochet project to work on next week while we are on vacation. We have a long car drive for vacation so it will be good for crocheting.

Have a Blessed day!

I'm going to scrapbook into the wee hours tomorrow with a friend. We have hundreds of pictures from the past that we are trying to get into albums, along with making digital books. Both of us had mostly used Creative Memories (along with local craft stores) - so we are trying to get our digital orders in before they no longer accept them. It will be better once we know CM's restructuring plans in full.

One town I know of has a yarn bombing event most years. They cover trees, statues, lamp posts, building supports/columns - you name it! It sure seems like a fun thing to do.

I'm going to spend some time with a friend today, helping her get a papercraft class ready to go. She is going to have her group make a couple of cards and hasn't done this before, but she is so capable she will be fine. She's a beautiful card maker and scrapper :) Maybe i will get a chance to play and make some of those pretty paper bows I have seen so many make. I need to prepare for my own class too!

Hi! I'm working on some sort of envelope wallet? (obviously still in the planning stages with this). I am trying to get better about managing my money while it's just me in my life, so that when the day comes for marriage and babies I'm not a total wreck with money, so I'm trying the envelope system, but want to make it pretty.

Yarn bombing sounds fun!

Today I am melting some older broken crayons I got at the thrift store, and making them more colorful larger ones. (My 3 yr old niece informed me I needed more crayons {I didn't have any, but she has colored pencils here}.)

COUZCAT - Yarn bombing is when you cover an object (usually outdoors) with a knit or crocheted wrapping. My crochet teacher was asked by the city to cover a bench, so she has invited her students to help. Good clean fun! I'm almost done with my piece.

Making notes from my latest card tinkering and cataloguing all the sample sizes I made. The cards are 5 x 7. The MS punch around the page punches only work with set dimensions. I found the 3 1/4 by 5 worked very well for a standard matting look. The 3 1/4 by 6 3/4 works as a full length border strip. Not as standard but a nice look.

Organizing my embellishments, it's getting hard to keep track of them. The 3 ring binder with page protectors, photo protector and trading card protector pockets didn't work here. The package sizes are all over the map. Went to storing in boxes by categorry. Not great but it will do until I dream up something better.
