Prompt : Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
This is a great prompt, because I am in a making mode right now.
Last night, I made a huge chunk of the 50+ Christmas cards that I am going to send out this year. At the beginning of this year, I pledged that I would not buy one single card from a store, but craft every single birthday, thank you, greeting card by hand. I think that I followed through with this (with maybe one exception when I really didn’t have the time to make my own card, before the card was due).
I’ve also been trying to make some new things with my crochet hook and yarn. You’ve seen one of the new things that I tried in my giveaway last week and I’ve also been working on some other yarn projects (which might be revealed at a later time).
In the process of all this crafting, I am also making a complete mess of our (teeny, tiny) living room. I really, really need a crafting room. For my own sanity,… and J’s. Once I busted out all my crafting stuff, the dining table (ok, and part of the floor) get completely taken over and we have to have our dinners on the couch (which is something I usually despise). I just know that I am totally gonna lose my momentum if I start packing everything away after I am done.
There is definitely a lot more that I want to make but haven’t been able to find the time for. I’d like to learn how to sew, I’d like to bake more often and I’d like to make more local friends :)
What’s the last thing that you made?
