Time to Get Crafty!

 As spring approaches, I find myself scavenging around my craft room nosing through the plethora of fabrics, trimmings, and notions as the sweet, sweet song of inspiration beckons me to new and crafty endeavors. Crazy, considering I all ready have a list a mile long of projects to make and gift this year. 

 Sometimes, crafting just needs to be impromptu. Not listed out neat and tidy. I believe that occasionally shocking the system with a new venture can help regain the discipline needed to get half-finished projects d-o-n-e.

There is just something so thrilling about peeking into 
a pretty, but long unopened box. 

 Oh, the joy of rediscovered bits and baubles!

 So while my tidy, prettily packaged, ready-to-go craft bags and carefully composed lists are helpful...

 ... they need not box me in! ;-)

What discoveries have left you feeling freer and happier this week?


  1. I love finding hidden stashes of goodies!
    My happy discovery this week has been a beautiful book called 'Fairy Shopping' that I'd forgotten I had, but pulled out of the cupboard to read to my class today! :-)

  2. Happy crafting!! I love finding sweet fabrics that have fallen behind something or been hidden away! Have a great week! xo Heather

  3. Looks like a lot of fun. My discovery has been the herbs still growing underneath the weeds in my garden.....


  4. Oh dear I am loving all the pretty pinks over here today....hope your weekend is filled with JOYS! xoxo

  5. You're so right about shocking the system - I need to listen to those craft impulses more often.

    What a beautiful bunch of fabrics in that box. What will you make?


It was lovely to hear from you today, Friend. Come back and visit again soon.
