Hi friends, hope you all have a great week! Mine had some ups and downs of course, but I took a bit of time to do some crafting, hang out with some friends, drink a lot of tea (and in some cases, wine) and seemed to have shaken a little bit of the blues out of me. Here are a few snippets from my week, largely of a crafty related nature (with a bit of cleaning thrown in)
I caught a bit of the embroidery bug before Christmas and made a few of these, which are embroidered pieces of a vintage sheet in a embroidery hoop, that are stitched with some of my brightest colours of embroidery floss.
I'll be making some updates to the Etsy shop this week, so expect to see these there!
I've also been working on some Valentine's Day crafts for the shop... I just finished the final touches and they turned out great. Here's a sneak peek--can you guess what I'm making?
I've also been working on organizing my craft bookshelf--before picture
After picture--it's hard to see, but the biggest change (and most time-consuming) was sorting out a lot of my beads into my found drawer organizer. Probably it needs a bit more work, but I'm pleased for now.
Now there's just the rest of my place to organize, and I think I need to do a serious declutter and tidy of my studio, which currently looks like a bomb hit it!
Also, if anyone has any crafty storage ideas, I'd love to hear them! I'm always struggling with that kind of thing, and largely have things in tote bags and bins everywhere, and it's totally getting out of control.
How do you manage your crafty clutter?
