A Day In The Studio

13 Aug

Saturday I had a day in the studio withoutย interruptions. It’s becoming sort of a great thing for me. Brian gets a day with Emma and I get a day to craft, then I can start the rest of my week on Monday knowing that I got a lot done over the weekend. It started out peaceful and I was so excited to jump in and get things done!

I cleaned it up, organized the room, and set up shop! I also made a list ๐Ÿ™‚ I organized a schedule that I wanted to keep up with that fit within our families needs but gave me enough time to balance the rest of my life.

After that I picked out what I wanted to work on for the day. I had some big plans:

I wanted to get a few burp cloths and an activity blanket done.

Some new frames were ready to be painted!

I needed to finish up my sisters runners for her wedding.

I also have had this fabric that I have been dying to make a pillow out of!

Stay tuned the rest of this week to see what all I got done!

Love Always,

J

Crafts: Baby Burpin’ Love ;)

13 Aug

I know I said I wasn’t buying any new fabric and just making inventory of the ones I already purchased.. but I couldn’t resist ๐Ÿ˜€ So today I did two that I’ve done previously – Pretty In Pink and Polka Dotted Pink

Here are the two new ones I’ve done:

Stencil Me Pink & Green ** Now available on my Etsy Page!

Baby Blue, Tan, and Brownย ** Now available on my Etsy Page

I’ll be posting these on etsy in the next few days and add their links here once they are posted. Still trying to think of names for them so if you have any suggestions/ideas let me know!!

I’ve got two more burp cloths on my list to do today, then an e-reader, a change bag, and monogramming bibs.. Let’s see if I can get it all done ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m not going to lie – I did “waste” sometime this morning pre-cutting fabric strips so when I go to make more they are already cut to size. I say “waste” because I don’t really feel like it’s a waste of time. It’s fun to see how many I can make out of one yard and see how much scraps I have left to make other things with ๐Ÿ˜€ But then again I get less done.. it’s a tough price to pay ๐Ÿ˜‰

E should be waking up any minute and who knows when the hubby will get home. I’m trying to think of easy dinners so I can keep up the work momentum.

Love Always,

Crafts: Saturday Sneak Peak

13 Aug

I’ve got lots of fun things to do this weekend! I went shopping yesterday after dinner and I guess you could say I went a little overboard ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t help it!! I have an addiction to yarn and fabric shopping!!! Today I plan on making burp cloths, e-reader covers, coin bags, a yarn wrapped letter, and monogramming some baby bibs for a family gift. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve got a lot on my plate today!!

I love crafty weekends โค

Love Always,

Crafts: Baby things are fun to make!

3 Jul

Today I cut a zillion pieces of fabric for baby burp cloths. I made a new one that’s a little more girly:

I started to prime a couple of frames but they are still drying. I am going to try to get one final down of the bull islander then I haveย a design I want to do in Maroon and Gold that I think will look really cute. Even if I finish it tonight I probably won’t post it until tomorrow. I’m starting to get tired from everything I did today so I know I’m not going to last much longer ๐Ÿ˜‰

I still have two days of crafting left to do and hopefully with B coming home tomorrow and Oma and Papa offering to babysit some I’ll be able to get in twice as much as I have lately. Now that there’s nothing left to clean I won’t have any distractions ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha. Goodnight everyone!!

Love Always,

Crafts: One Successful Crafty Day!

2 Jul

Today I had planned on getting up early, running errands, buying everything I needed to complete the crafts I plan on doing for the craft fair, coming home, AND crafting! I quickly realized that my budget said I couldn’t buy EVERYTHING on my list so I prioritized and knocked a few things off but I think I still have plenty to go on ๐Ÿ˜‰

My top choices have rearranged a little.. I initially was going to have the majority of my work be scarves, but after today.. I just can’t help but want to make a million burp cloths instead!! Check out what I did!

I also made a frame. Now here’s the warning. I know it’s not perfect. It’s flawed in many ways!! This was a trial and error for me and I have some tweaking to do so the next one comes out exactly as planned but I wanted you to see it anyways!

ย 

ย I was considering working on another burp cloth tonight but with E in bed I really don’t want to take the chance of waking her up! Normally with B in the house the TV is on or he’s playing video games and she goes to bed with the noise but with him away it’s been super quite around here.. If I jump in and start making noise she might wake up and boy do I not want to deal with that all by myself this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I might stick to making a new frame or crocheting. I’ll have plenty of time tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday to get things done so I’m not too worried!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend!

Love Always,

J
