I have so many projects going on! I am so glad that I have my planners to keep track of when they are all due and when to ship etc. I enjoy making things and sitting in my craft room quietly listening to my books via audible. It’s just easier for me listen then to sit with a book because I will constantly get distracted to run or prevent Kay from getting into something or stop arguments.
One project I am working on is an altered tea cup. This one is my first ever like this so I am super ecstatic to have joined this swap. I will blog and do a video on YouTube once it’s completed! I had found a tea cup set of four in my favorite thrift store so I took them home with me and will make one for the swap and one for me and then the other two teacups I will save for Kay’s special birthday that I will not announce the theme, just in case it gets changed.
Another project I am working on is the vintage/shabby chic junk journal. This is from a Facebook group that I am in. It has to be a composition notebook which makes it easier but can do much more on it because of the size of it. This will be my second junk journal! So I am very glad I decided to join in on this swap. Below is a photo of my first junk journal and I have posted on my YouTube the inside and details of it all.
- I was supposed to go to a baby shower but couldn’t due to my flare up just starting the day before. I was so sad to have been able to go but her gifts were mailed to my sweet friend and one of the things I made for her was a monthly label to capture the baby and see how each month she changes and grows. I loved it and will be making more for my etsy shop.
This week was super jam packed with projects as you can clearly see for yourself and also see on my Instagram my journey and life via there so feel free to follow me. Okay back to the projects! I also made 3 mini brag books, I had made one for my sister for her prom and she loved it so much that her friends requested some so I also placed them in my etsy shop so they can enjoy and have a mini brag book. I learned how to make it via scrapinology’s YouTube which I love because that’s where I get my inspiration from. I admire her talent so much and hope to be as gifted as her.
The last project I made this week was an atc shabby chic easel. I had never made an atc card before so this was also a learning process for myself. I enjoyed it so much and was glad to have one for myself! I have also made a YouTube video of the description of the lovely project so feel free to check it out HERE
So that’s all I managed to get done this week, phew! I’m hoping this next week is filled with more lovely projects because this helps me so much with my depression and feeling good and it’s a great outlet.
If your feeling a bit blue or like you might be depressed, color, doodle or draw or even write or read! Don’t stay stuck in the mud because it will just make it worse. I know from experience and found this healthy way as an outlet.
What projects are working on?
