Crafty Resolutions

This is just one shelf of the "craft closet" located in Ava's room. You could say that it needs a little remodeling, er reorganization. There are other areas to look at, but you get the picture. Even after I reorganized in preparation for Miss Ava, there is still tons of crafting to do in there. I didn't even mention the yarn. So, what am I going to do with this? I'm proposing a sort of craft diet, where everything I make, at least half has to come from my stash. In the yarn department, I'm on a spending freeze.

So let's just say, when I'm not being a wife/mom with all of those responsibilities or a teacher with all of THOSE responibilities, I hope that I will be able to create something wonderful out of nothing. Which is what refuels my energy to do the everyday things. Like dishes. And laundry, which multiplies with each new body.

I will post projects i'm working on and hopefully and completed project a month. Below is something I made during our snow days here in Tulsa. It's Bella's birthday cake hat for my niece in NJ:

I've made at least 3 of these hats. They are fun - quick and so cute. Of course Ava the Great will get one for her birthday, along with her tutu.
