I missed a day which was not something I’m too proud of.I know it’s ok,but i decided to make this a daily activity. I was going to write it when i came home from work, by than it was already today. So anyone who reads my blog, first i want to say Thank You and second i want to say sorry i missed you.So i only have a quick craft to show you, but first i want to tell you about some quick upcoming crafts I’m planning. To start I want to ask what do you think would be a good gift for someone returning to school. I was thinking about making an emergency kit/pencil supply kit. That is what i plan for my craft for tomorrow, if i can get this on paper. For me pen and paper is important. I need to plan it out take inventory of supplies i have or need and execute these plans. Another ideal i thinking about is making a leather or faux leather travelers notebook. I think that would be a good Xmas gift . Stay tune for that .You know i like to share crafts, so let me show you this quick craft. As you know working for a craft store have its perks but along with the discount we have first access to discounted and clearance items. As you know Micheals are ahead when it comes to holidays, so to make room for our Christmas items they put all Halloween and thanksgiving stuff on clearance. Yes most two weeks before Halloween So i found they still had potion jars which i (thinking outside the box), would make ice jars for storing items, You know those little items that should be contained. Brought 4 and took off the labels painted them and use them for little desk things like rubber bands, paper clips etc. tI left the black ones the way they were, but the yellow ones was rose gold. They make a cut addition to my plastic storage jars i brought at Dollar tree.Tomorrow i will shoe you that craft and the set up on my desk. So that’s it for today hope it wasn’t too long. Talk to you later
Surprise I’m back with a small haul of items that will be used either for my planners or what i will use in the Etsy store As you know this is the best time of the year to get craft items from Michaels cause they have daily deals and doorbusters.the first items i got are for a craft I’m planning which i will share in a future post. The pack of buttons which are Christmas theme will be used with the ribbon to make book markers. I recently made shaker book markers and i have plans to make a Christmas theme one. I will share that in a future post.The items above i will use in my planner spreads and my traveler notebook . I try to have a theme in my planner but sometimes it dont work, so I’m hoping these item will give me some incentive. Well I’ll ring this blog to and end now. I will be back tomorrow with my daily blog.
I wanted to start this blog by saying happy holidays. I can’t believe how 2017 has grown and matured and we are expecting a new baby in just a little less than 1 1/2 months. Yes baby new year is all his way. As promise,well I dont know if it was a promise I’m writing a blog post everyday. I’m not sharing any diys today I just wanted to jump on to say hey. So what are you playing for the holidays. Do you plan on traveling ,spending quality time with family or just doing some extra projects for the season. Let me know in the comments below. I do have plans to up my diy game. I want to do my own Xmas cards this year. I have a cricut maker machine and i want to break that baby in. I also want to sew more to improve my skills. I would like to add bags,such as make up cases, emergency kits,as well as their items that can organize any bag, from purse to book bag, to brief cases. More to plan, more to do. Good thing I’m a planner person.
So i will bring this blog to an end and leave yo with this question. What holiday diys are you planning ?
As everyone knows not all diy are successful. There sometimes are failures.You know when you have the idea in your head and everything is planned out and put on paper, but when you actual start executing the ideal, it just dont work.Well i have a failure story for you. Earlier this year i made a storage table out of an old suitcase. This turned out to be a nice useful item. So my mom during her cleaning found another old suitcase. So i decided to use this suitcase to make a charging station. To me this was a good idea because i have lots of teams from cell phone, tablets, electronic readers, battery pack for cell, bluetooth this and that which requires to be charged. So yes i should use the suitcase to make a charging station So i start doing research on charging stations and how i will use my table concept and tweak it to make a changing station.So with my research done, I ideas on paper I was ready to make it. Well lets cut to the chase. I brought the wrong brackets for the legs, so the legs was crooked,my drill battery pack was weak (it belonged to my late step-father, so it was on its way out), which took longer to drill any holes need. I had to get another drill needless to say. When i install me cord inside the suitcase it just wouldn’t lay right so i glued it to the back panel of the suitcase. That didn’t work because of all the plugs. So with those few failed attempt, i gave up.
So with that i found another item to make a charging table out of and in a future post. I will share that item with you. This is what i was working with.This is my new one, update coming soon.Well this is my failure story and i just want to say its ok to fail and share your failure because maybe someone can turn your failure to a success story.
Talk to you soon.
First i want to say is I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving. On this day I hope we all look back at what we should all be thankful for. I know i said i will be posting more content, and I’ve been trying to get back to this blog,(which as of today i will pencil in the time to do it daily). I have been working on some crafts and will share a couple of the items i made in this blog today. As you know this is the busiest season of the year at Michaels and I’ve also had issues, but i promise to you i will start blogging daily.So one thing i have been working on is with my mom sewing machine. Ive been just making things to get a feel for making things.So I’ve made some chair covers for my mom chairsMy mom brought these chairs from the Salvation Army and she liked the style f the chairs but they were a little destroyed.So i made chair covers that can be removed and washed. Another project i worked on is a “diva light”As you know i want to stay making you tube video and i dont have good lighting in the area i plan to record. So i did my research and found some videos on asking ring lights.I think it came out nice and i cant wait to use it.So these are two projects i worked on and i hope you will come back tomorrow I have more items to show you. If you want toget any information about anything in my blog please leave me a comment and i will get back to you
So have a great day and keep crafting.
