Scissors Get Crafty! (August 2014)

I'm going to lose my mind if I don't get to be creative soon! I think it's been a year since I've made anything good.

My parents are moving out tomorrow, and I'm setting up my craft area in the basement. Looking forward to getting the juices flowing!

What are your crafty plans this month?

I am a 5th grade teacher and I have two new teammates this year, and I am making them personalized file organizers for their intervention materials, and of course, I am getting ready for my own classroom. All my creativity will be taken by preparing for school - so excited for a new school year!

I am going to start back on my plastic canvas. Love to make coasters and tissue box holders. Think I am going to put a bottom on a tissue box holder and use it as a coupon holder.

Oh my gosh, I learned plastic canvas in 4h when I was little. I had forgotten about it until I saw some supplies in our local creative reuse store. I bought a pack of 15 4" squares for 65 cents for my dd to try out. She loved it although she only did a stitch around the edge. She's 6 and wanted to sew like she watches me doing. I have given her a regular needle and scrap fabric before but the tangling thread made her very easily frustrated. It was nice to see her enjoy creating that way.

I had to stop because of arthritis, but my doctor put me on gabapentin for diabetic nerve damage and I can use my hands for the sewing again.

I challenged my dd to finish something everyday this week - I constantly start something and do not finish and worse buy the supplies for a project and fail to begin. Here is a photo of what I made/finished.
A quilted bag - finished. I started it in a class.
Hair bows for my grand daughter. Had the supplies just needed time.
Quilted key chains - love Vera Bradley and thought I would try this project.
Two Backpacks - Used fabric from my stash. Gonna put little surprises in them for the next time I ride in the car with the grands.
Spider-man pants - Borrowed a pattern from my daughter and made a surprise for my grandson.

Love the fabric for the bag!

I need to make a couple of pillowcases. Mom got pillows for my husband and me but they are huge , stuffed sausages in our regular cases.

We found a leak behind our shower so does tearing out walls, tile and flooring--and then rebuilding count as crafts. If so, doing lots of crafting lately.

Also a friend asked me to refinish a mirror. It came out really well. That's kind of legitimate crafty, right?

Oh, and all husband wants for his bday is a "deadliest catch" shirt for Lola, our chihuahua. They watch it together. I have to get working on that. Found a couple of cute things I can emulate since there doesn't seem to be something I can just buy!

I need to get back to scrapbooking. I'm waiting for a rainy, cool day. Always puts me in the mood to scrap. Is that weird?

I also need to start and finish our shutterfly 'yearbook' book

Great morning for me! I had a few hours alone to go to a HUGE outdoor craft show in Lititz, PA. It was awesome. I actually didn't buy too much but had tons of fun looking at all the crafts and admiring people's skills and creativity.
