Ever felt scattered, yet stuck in a rut?
It’s not a fun place.
Everyone needs a little variety to shake things up every once in a while.
My variety came on Christmas.
My husband surprised me with a Cricut Air, and if you don’t know what one is and you are a crafty person, look it up and it will blow your mind.
In short, it’s a super duper paper cutting machine that not only cuts paper into cool shapes, but can also cut fabric, chipboard, stiff felt, and vinyl for projects.
I’ve loved being able to make nice cards and envelopes at home.
I recently cut out a ton of hearts and glued them to some string for a banner to go over our fireplace.
My husband has had some good changes with his job, and he cleared off our desk for my stuff. My sewing machine is out, and it has been getting a workout. I got it around 10 years ago from my parents as a birthday gift, and I am thankful for the many tutorials on Youtube.
I love my Valentine’s Day pillow covers so much.
There’s still activity going on in the garden.
Here’s a collard plant that volunteered for me.
The sugar snaps are doing well and ready for their trellis!
Oh, and I made a reversible bandana for Leif. Having that sewing machine out and accessible has made such a difference. He’s hoping I won’t make him one with hearts all over it for Valentine’s Day. 🙂
I have many more projects percolating in my brain, and some of them are a surprise for somebody, so they’ll have to wait.
Are you making anything fun? Learning anything new? It’s great!!!
