In my quest for being the world worst homemaker, I decided I should try and craft….at least a little. Let’s be honest- to attempt to be the perfect Martha Stewart Wife would really just be setting myself up for imminent failure. SO instead, I own the fact that I will dabble in the domestic arts and hope that maybe one day I will have the time to devote to them.
Until then, I am still trying to figure out what I even like doing.
So this holiday season I got ambitious. Dareth has been taking about hosting a craft night. I have been looking for a reason to try to make some of the things I pinned. So I was all for it! Especially since my last craft project was a TOTAL fail.
Except I didn’t make anything I pinned…why does it always work out like that?
Instead I spent hours looking for the perfect stalking to make For Christmas. And once we did, We were both sold.
We picked out fabrics we liked. I went for more reto looking stuff. Knowing that Adam bought me a Gold Tinsel Tree for next year!!! CANT WAIT!!!Oh Next Christmas can't get here soon enough!
The first Craft night was a lot of fun. Sarah came too! And Dareth’s ACTUALLY crafty Friend Dani. We cut. Ironed. Pinned and sewed. While Dani Scrap-booked and Sarah worked on a block set.
|Can you see this picture? I only can in IE and its weirding me out....|
It was fun. Mostly because it was a reason to get together. Which doesn’t seem like we do enough.
I was on a crafting high, since this project WORKED! So Dareth and I got even more ambitions and bought fabric for several scarf projects.
Needless to say, craft night 2.0 was a slightly (OK a ton) less successful. I made Adam a scarf at least!
Now I just need to commander my mom’s good sewing machine….Muah ah ah ah aha….that would make all these projects so much easier.
New plan….I’ll keep you updated on how that goes.
- Did you do a homemade Chistmas?
- Any Projects you pinned that I need to see?
