Hi and welcome back to my blog. Once again I want to thank all of you for sticking around for my return. I also want to thank all of my new subscribers to my blog. I hope I don’t disappoint you. So today I’m back with coffee time. Coffee time is the time I sit down with a hot cup of coffee and just fill in you and catch you up. So as most of you know I moved to Florida and I didn’t have the opportunity to blog much. I’m still with Michaels, but my role at this store has change,so I dont have a steady schedule and hours. So I now have to take the time to make an actual crafting and blogging schedule. But like everything else it will take time. The good thing is I have a blank canvas(my apartment) and I have a lot of decorating to do,and you will be right there with me. One of my biggest projects will be setting up a crafting area in my bedroom. My new bedroom is much small than the previous one,but this one I share with Pebbles(my fur baby)only.Right now all my stuff is in my closet and If I want to work on a project, I have to go to the closet ,get my supplies and bring them at the table( the kitchen table) to work on them. So now I’m planning to either buy a table to set up my craft items or make one. I think I’m going with making one. I cannot find a table that is long enough to hold all my crafting items. I would like to have access to my Cricut maker as well as my sewing machine at the same time.I also have a printer and a lap top. I need to have all those items in one area so I can just sit down and craft. I did complete a smaller crafts this week, as you probably saw by now. It was my little side table. I still haven’t gotten the supplies to make another one,but as soon as I do I will show you the space.This is what the table look like but I haven’t decided what will be placed on it yet. My daughter has a plant that will go into that pot, but I dont know if it will get enough light so we will see. My other option is that white lantern. I got them from five below for 2.50, so I did pick up two. Well I will bring this long blog to an end for today. I hope you stay around so see what’s coming up. And as always Keep crafting.
Hi, welcome back to my blog from hot and sunny(for now) Florida.Thank you once again for sticking around waiting for me to blog once again.So today I’m back with a project that I started last Tuesday. Remember my Diamond Dots baby tiger. This is what it looks like when I started. So if you remember Diamond Dots are pictures on canvas where there are little diamonds that you place on this canvas to add sparkle to the picture. Far away it looks like cross stitch, and maybe we can call it cross stitch with a twist. So above is what my picture looked like before I started it.Every morning before I had to get ready for work, I would spend a least one to two hours on it. It was so addictive , that on the last day my daughter whom wanted to try it ended up putting the finishing and missing gems on it. So here is my finished picture.So the thoughts on this project. I found it to be something to do to relax. Its very time consuming, but it you have free time I highly recommend it. Another thing you should know is this is the smaller one and there is one bigger than this one. The measurement for the picture itself is 11by14. I dont know the measurement for the larger one. This one is pricey at $17.99 and I used a 50% off coupon which still cost me around $9. These items are available at Micheals.
Well that all I have for you today. Thursday will be my crafting day and I will share with you every project. For the time being I will not be able to do my daily blogs . I have to set up my new craft area with you and I will share how I store my craft items and organize my craft space. That will be coming soon. So until then,
Hi and thank you for sticking around my blog. And for those who didn’t SHAME ON YOU.LOL. So what’s been going on in my absent. So before I get started let me explain the reason why Ive been AWOL.The reason I’ve been away is because I relocated. Yes I moved from New York to Florida. There was so much to do I didn’t have time to craft. And where as I knew I wanted to move to Florida since February, the move happened so fast. There was so much planning to do and packing to do that I still have a whole lot of stuff I need to pick up from New York in a future date. So now I’m some what settled, its only been 3 weeks,UGH I took some time to do some crafting and start a project for my solarium wall. So the first project I want to share with you is the picture I’m working on. As you know some time ago I purchase the diamond dots picture and I was planning to work on it as soon as I got home with it but life happened and I didn’t have the time to work on it. So last night I was sitting at the table and I decided to work on it.This is all the components that came with this picture. It came with the canvas where you put the diamond on, a stylus and wax to pick up the diamonds and a tray to hold the diamonds you are working with. I worked on this picture about three hours last night and this is what it look like when I went to bed.I dont know if you can actually get a close up picture, but you can notice where the diamonds are compare to where there isn’t any diamonds. I worked on it more this morning and this is how far its gotten.When you look at it, it almost looks like cross stitch. I will share with you as soon as I finish as well as the space I placed it.
The project that I worked on last week was a couple of pillows for my Pebbles. If you dont know Pebbles she is my dog. Yet she dont know she is a dog and no one wants to tell her. While we are in the living area, she need somewhere to lay so she dont have to lay directly on the carpet. So me and my roommates which consist of my daughter and her good friend when to a discount Disney cast member shop. There along with chair we picked up an item that Disney use to put at the bottom on the bed , I guess in case people sit on the bed they sit on this instead of the blanket. I’m drawing a blank what they are called ,sorryIt covers the bottom of a full size bed. So what I did was cut it in have and then sew the half in half to make a pillow.Sorry I dont have pictures of the total process and what it looked like completed, but I can show you who loved it.As soon as I finished it and placed it on the floor she went to it and laid down. Excuse the mess behind her that another project that I will share in a future date. I also made her a pillow for the bed. Thats the pillow I made for the bed where I sleep and she sleep.So to keep her from sleeping on my pillow she now has her own.
So I hope you are still sticking around because I’m back and I will share with you my new craft area setup. So as always
