current craftiness..

Lately I have been trying to devote some of my time to being crafty.. I love the sense of accomplishment that I get from it, and it’s free time for Mommy too!

Here’s what I have been up to:

I have been wanting to make a birthday plate for a few years now, and am so happy that I finally got around to it & can’t wait to use it!

Once a month, I have been go to “stamp camp”, 
which is held at my Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Carol’s home.
 I LOVE to make cards, and getting away to stamp while all of the cardstock & embellishments are all cut & ready for you is my kind of crafting!

Here's the cards we made for March:

A couple of friends of mine have been trying to get me into jewelry making, and although I haven't quite caught on yet.. I love to hang out & chat with them!

I myself don't wear much jewelry.. but I did make a little necklace & earring set!

The first of March, a daughter of a friend of ours got married & Aidan got to attend his first wedding! (he wasn't too impressed, but LOVED the cake!)

Anyways.. for wedding gifts, we usually go the gift card route for presents..
but I wanted to give them a gift "from the heart" ..
so I made this cute little marriage rules gift for them (to go along with the gift card!)

 I love how it turned out, and want to make a family rules one for us! 

I got away for an all day craft day with my best friend Michelle..
and I FINALLY finished Aidan's baby book!

What a relief it was to finally cross this off of my "to-do" list! 

Last, but certainly not least, I have learned how to knit! 

I am making a scarf, and it has tons of imperfections.. and I love them! 
I have mastered the art of casting on, as one of my cats AND Aidan have each pulled my almost complete scarf from my knitting needles TWICE.. frustrating, but I've gotten in lots of practice! 
Now to finish it up & learn how to cast off!

What have you all been working on? I'd love to see! :)

  4. I love that birthday plate - it turned out pretty, and it's such a neat idea!
