Here I sit with my cup of coffee (addicted) planning out the course of my day. I have an overwhelming amount of things on my To Do List and it is the reason why I have been so scarce lately. As many of you have speculated after reading my last post, I am hoping to do a show this holiday season IF I can build my inventory to a respectable level.
Here are some of the Quick 'n Easy Flower Hairpins that I have been working on this week. You can find the tutorial here if you'd like to make some for the little girls in your life.
You all don't know this but I have a strong penchant for candles (addicted). I had to force myself to stop purchasing more because I couldn't burn them fast enough.
Part of the reason for not burning candles too often is my fear of causing a fire. About a year ago, I purchased a warmer and that seems to have quelled my fear. I know what you're thinking. She's afraid to burn candles yet she keeps buying them??? (I see you shaking your head in bewilderment.)
As you can see, I still have quite a collection and this is only half of them. I counted 55 votives in this one bin alone.
This week I have started melting the Autumn scented votives in my candle warmer. The delightful scent of cinnamon, pumpkin, and cloves have begun to permeate my craft room and I am happy to declare that I am officially in the mood for Fall. Bring on the cooler weather and I am good to go.
(As soon as the candle has melted down, I remove the wick and sustainer base with a pair of tweezers.)
You already know how much I adore fabric (addicted). I have recently begun collecting paper crafting/scrapbooking/cardmaking supplies with a vengeance (addicted) but that's another story for another day.
I guess you could say that I have an addictive personality. Thank goodness it is mainly for all things crafty or I would be in big trouble.
Have a wonderfully creative week, everyone!
