Crafty Schmafty...

Suddenly (probably due to the consistent paycheck and ability to buy materials) I'm back into crafting.

Now I'm feeding the habit by spending hours on pinterest (thanks a lot Becky).
Any other crafters out there with fun ideas?

Here are two things I finished today:

My plain old white desk is lovely but..plain old white. So I added a splash of Mauve and lace.

and


I wanted to make the light switch/heater unit blend in. In another few days I'll have covered the plugs in the apartment covered in the same fabric to match.

I guess I'm crafty... never really got too much into it, though.

The other night, the women's group at church made Scripture Journals. I'll post mine when I finish it... after I finish bringing in groceries! LOL

I really like the switch cover. What a great idea.

I would love to see your journal Dawn.

Okay, here it is!



It's just a regular composition book, with decorative paper and embellishments and ribbons glued onto it.
Sorry the bow looks weird...I can't find my digital camera OR my bluetooth to transfer pictures from my phone...so I slapped it on the scanner and did it that way.

I asked the lady in charge of the project where she got ideas for all her sample/demos (there was one she made in blue, with gold colored butterflies that looked to be like tin cut-outs...gorgeous! I actually told her I would buy it from her! LOL she declined ) because I would want some ideas for my next one, after I use up this one.
She said just look on the internet for "scripture journal", and I'd find all sorts of stuff. Well, I did... except it was all stuff to be put IN the journal, like your favorite versus, quotes from church authorities, inspirational phrases, etc. ...nothing about how to design the covers!

Oh, and speaking of Pinterest... I know the "Home" section is for decorating (like Krissy did).... is there a section for organizing? LOL My clutter is getting out of control. It's not really that I have a lot of stuff...I'm just not sure how to arrange it "nicely", so it always ends up being shuffled from one pile to another
I do have some nice book shelves and utility shelves in the kitchen...but they're not organized. I just shove stuff on them randomly. I am not creative or smart enough to even begin to form my own plan of how to sort all this junk!

Well my mom is a good start.

Pinterest doesn't have an organizing section but you can just search "organize" and a bunch of stuff pops up.
