There is some crafting go on over here at the House of Kells.
I went to Joanne’s yesterday with coupon in hand, and I was not afraid to use it.
I bought yarn, fabric, stocking stuffers, and got the creative juices flowing for some Christmas crafting fun. I say Christmas, because I have never really been into fall crafting. I love the leaves, I crazy love the colors, but I am a spring girl. I love when everything comes alive and the bright colors encompass all that I see.
One thing I am going to make for the month of November, is a wreath. I enjoyed the Halloween wreaths I made, so I wanted to make one for the fall.
Now, all of my ideas come from Martha, Pinterest, or other blogs. There are some seriously creative people out there. I am jealous of the time they take to craft. I am working on organizing my own little craft corner. It has been decided that I need an outlet.
Here are some wreaths I am interested in making.
I love the colorful flowers.
What is not to love about this. I could switch out the fabric, add a little foliage, and presto.
The possibilities are endless.
Currently, I am working on this.
It is my first cowl. It is my first time to knit in the round. I am crazy excited about this. My wish is to be able to knit cardigans. Then, my knitting life would be complete. I am using my favorite chunky yarn by Lion Brand called Thick and Quick. I think someone was in a very randy mood when naming this yarn. Lol. I wish I could explain in words, how cathartic knitting is to me.
I am currently coming up with a list of Christmas crafts to make, not to mention the yummy things I am going to bake. One recipe being my mom’s super duper yummy sugar cookies. It does not matter how many times I make them, they never taste liker hers. This year I will prevail.
I also stopped at Home Goods, and bought an inspirational journal to write my thoughts, ideas, to dos, recipes, crafts, and blog ideas in.
I truly believe this, and am going to live it.
