Between Spring Break this week, a nasty cold hitting the house, and an injury to my shoulder I am running a little behind on everything this week. So sorry for posting a bit late today.
Here recently the crafting bug has hit me. My Pinterest is filled with things I want to make for my house and to give as gifts. I would love to give me daughter a cozy, girly bedroom. When we moved she volunteered for the smallest bedroom. But she has more stuff then Quin who is across the hall. I think she took that to because it was the ONLY room with a little shelf. Quickly, she filled it with her books stacking them three deep. Books fill her nightstand and pour over to her dresser. My first project for her room is going to be a trundle bookcase. There just isn’t space for her to have a bookcase so I am going to put one on wheels under her bed. I showed it to her and she got excited but I am not doing that until I surprise her with the daybed she always wanted. She said she doesn’t need extra seating if she has a day bed and several pillows.
The next things requires a trip or two to some thrift stores searching for tea cups and saucers. I found this amazing bedside lamp that I am going to try to make. I plan to make two, one for my office and one for my daughter’s room. There are also plans to make candles and a few decorative displays as well as pin cushions all with tea cups! I’ll leave the link to my craft board on Pinterest in case you want to check out my inspirations since for some reason I can’t upload the pictures today.
The last project is also using a tea cup. My childhood home is surrounded by trees. Last week there was a tornado and my mom’s favorite birds feeder was thrown across the yard and shattered. (Thankfully, there wasn’t more damage than limbs going down and some damage to the garage, everyone is safe). To replace the bird feeder I am going to make one out of a tea cup, perhaps I’ll make two so she can put nectar in one for her hummingbirds.
Do you enjoy crafting? Is there anything that you’ve seen and wanted to make (or have someone else make for you)?
