That's right! I go every day........ well Monday through Friday
in my book that counts as every day
so I've resorted to doing crafts at work on Saturdays (my boss doesn't mind/I'm his favorite)
So most weekends I make very small, teeny tiny progress on whatever I need to get down.
so today I finally got around to painting my parents numbers on their house
I would show you, but then you would know where I live. and I love stalkers as much as I love it when people throw soft tacos at my car.....that's right. my car has been soft tacoed. taco'd?
who cares about the spelling.
but I finally finished (besides stapling the back) this
its wayyyyyyyyyy betttttttttter in person. pink promise
and I love making these, like I would set up an esty shop with just this one project..and wouldn't care if I make millions. I seriously enjoy it.
I have also been busy making koozies for some girls at work.
While this would have been enjoyable, some people have sticks up their butts and told me that they don't like their button, but it will work.
Well fine. at least the other people liked theirs and I love fabric
so those took me like a week to make.
1. because I'm lazy and work, so I didn't feel like working on them
2. because my sewing machine hates me and the bobbin does weird things all the time
but their done...thank goodness
well I went to walmart to get some needle threaders, but they only have the cheap ones that I break because I sew with embroidery floss and not regular thread
I use embroidery floss on the canvas' I create and I honestly like it better than regular thread, I can break it down and make the stitch bigger or smaller. Which is AWESOME to me
but I didn't buy any needle threaders, so I looked at the clearance section of the craft/sewing department and found something I'm excited about.
pom-pom's on a roll for .50 cents???? yes please.
I LOVE pom-pom's, I don't even know why. I just love
I can't wait to dye these puppies to match something random
I got some velvety blue and some weird gold trim too.
and my thought process is like this....blue ribbon, ok, gold trim, alright, I always need pom-poms
these will be good in my stash...I'll spend 2 bucks on this....and then I throw it in the basket.
this little action drives my grandmother crazy, she finds it so frustrating that I buy things like rolls of pom-poms or excess of different colored fabrics without a clue what I'm doing with them.
Every time I do this she screams about how nothing matches and that's not how you even make a quilt and I'm crazy. She's crazy old, but I don't yell at her. and to think I want to move to spend more time with her....that's crazy
Well I thrive on it, I need to pick it because I never know when I'll need something that random
and ideas pop in and out of my head all the time. So yes I need 15 fat quarters of completely opposite fabric and 482983 kinds of embroidery floss. Leave me alone old woman.....just kidding grandma
and since I have nothing else to blog about, I've seen all my fellow bloggers show their studio
even though mines not a studio, its a room, but its pretty rad that I don't have to craft on my bedroom floor. that got old fast
so this is the view that I look at when I'm in my element
It's called organized chaos.
I know everyone uses that saying. but its true, where did I find my hammer today? in the desk, where it belongs......yes it does, I'm sorry that I'm seriously good at anything on the wall without using a level and my excellence comes out more when I've been drinking.
and my x-acto knife? its with the paints.....that's where its safe...and my heating pad, its next to the fabric.
I'm not sure how this brain works, but I graduated college. with a 3.7
so suck it.
I'M A GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
