Friends! Hello there, I hope you have been doing well. I've been fairly busy in aspects of my life and haven't had too much time to craft these past few weeks, so please excuse this mini, tiny, extremely short blog about what crafting I have been doing in my spare time. The main crafting that I have been doing recently is some weaving with yarn. My overall love of yarn was sparked by my fellow crafter Cara and I would very much suggest checking her out on Etsy if you are interested in any wall hangings: www.etsy.com/shop/SeptemberSunStudio?ref=shop_sugg.
I bought myself a fairly cheap loom on Amazon and have been buying yarn from both the Dollar Tree and JOANN's. Here are some examples of some weavings that I have done recently.
I have also been taking the time to try out all of the cool things that my fancy new Cricut can do. I know I've mentioned it before, but in case you haven't heard, I have a Cricut and it's awesome! I think everyone know about Cricut's ability to cut out stickers and paper, but I made some little art pieces not long ago where I wanted to try out two more of its abilities such a cutting out stencils and writing in fancy fonts.
In my pack of materials that I got when I received the Cricut was some adhesive material that I used to cut out a stencil of a moon and stars. I ended up using both the stencil itself and the relief left over to create two little mini canvases.
I used a sponge and some acrylic paint to paint around the stencils and made two little skyscapes. I also decided to try out the Cricut's ability to write which is something that I find so impressive for some reason! You can use different colored pens and have the Cricut write in a variety of fonts. As someone who loves the look of fancy script, but cannot do it herself, this is a game changer! This is something I'm very excited to keep trying out.
And ... that's what I have today friends. It is small, but I just wanted to remind you that you can find the time to do a few creative things even if life is crazy. Not having the time to do your hobby for a few weeks doesn't mean that you've "lost" it. Be kind to yourselves!
I am a 27-year-old crafter and baker from New Hampshire!
