DIY flower drying

What do you think about my DIY wrapping gift skills? DIY flower drying are great for gift garnishes! Combine them with wrapping material of your choice and you’ll get an original presentation. My favorite wrapping material is tissue paper. It  is an incredibly versatile material. I regularly browse through gift packing supply for new colors. If you make sure you always have a few reams of tissue paper in the house, just pick up a few flowers few days ahead and let your creativity run free :) What do you think?

Cleaning out the craft room!

Hi friends, I'm so tired of cleaning. We had an unplanned home repair (to put it succinctly) and we ended up getting rid of a lot of stuff PDQ. We're still getting rid of stuff and this weekend I took up the challenge of cleaning out my craft room/office. The last time I did this was in 2010 - it was a major undertaking! This time it wasn't so bad, but once stuff comes out of storage for the basement, I'll be a lot choosier about what stays and what goes.

Have you cleaned the craft room lately? What crafts/interests have fallen out of favour? Any surprises or great finds?

Pantry design

Hey guys,

Just wanted to share with you some practical and artful ways to label Spice Jars and pantry. I’ve been preparing to  tackle with this in my own rental kitchen, where a variety of mass-market plastic bottles are jammed awkwardly in a drawer. First and foremost decide how you’ll label your jars – all caps, lower case letters – think it through and pre-write it out if necessary.  (This might sound tedious, but if you are taking the time to hand-label the jars, you will probably be annoyed if you don’t love the way it turns out.)

Choose a color or black or white – match it up with your kitchen or pantry.  I chose the black permanent marker because it looks clean and it shows up the best with a variety of colored contents.

Here is the result, Let me know your ideas and what you think?

Pineapple Tunic

I made it off this pattern: https://crochetkim.com/pineapple-cascade-baby-dress/

She was so excited to try it on and see it grow. I could have made the neck smaller but she can grow from dress to top.

Quilting in spaaaaace!
