Back to Reality

It's been a good holiday weekend. I've enjoyed my time off. Other than working for a few hours on Saturday, I've been having lots of me time. In fact, I spent much of Friday and Sunday in my pj's crafting, reading and decorating for Christmas. Definitely much needed me time.

I've had crafting ADD lately though. It seems I can't sit and finish a project, instead I need to have multiple projects going on so I can switch back and forth between them. This weekend I finally finished these two pages, which I started while scrapping with Ally last weekend.



I did lots of knitting. I finally finished my tunic top on Wednesday. Now I just need to take a photograph and share. I have also been working on two other knitting projects this weekend and planning several more. I'm on a big knitting kick right now.

I also pulled out the felt again. Something about the holidays has me loving creating with felt. Last week I linked a little stitched button project. Here's my take on it:


I don't love how the letters came out, a little squished, but full of handmade flavor none the less. I'm thinking I'm going to put it in a little frame or maybe on a small canvas.

I've also been playing around with my December Scrap for a Cure kit. I was given the mini kit to work with. Lots of fun stuff in this little kit. Here's the first project I made. A little happy holiday canvas:


Aren't those flowers great? Love them.

Now back to decorating the tree...

So fun! LOOOOOOVE the pages, and I'm super jealous about your crafting time. I might need to "borrow" that idea and stage my own pj-craft-day. LOVES!
