it’s a holiday weekend (a 4-day for me) which means: staying home. avoiding traffic. crafting. bike rides. crafting. (did i already say crafting?)
on friday, i’m heading to my mom and daddy’s to can peaches. they’ve been canning all week since 2 flats were ready to go. i’ll make more strawberry jam too.
then i’ve got three whole days to get my craft on! since i’m totally in the moo,d and bought supplies for a bunch of projects from my pinterest board, i figured this would be a good weekend to make a to-do list.
here are 5 projects i will accomplish by sunday night:
i have a chalk board in my kitchen already. i used to write cute things, or what was for dinner but it’s been wiped clean and neglected for months now. this chalk holder is pretty much the perfect way for me to be inspired to write on it.
with new felt in fall colors and a new chain from michael’s, this seems like a quick and easy necklace to make.
i’ll be putting this monogram (a.) onto ….. that tote bag (down there). i will decide whether or not to do the notebook paper. would be cute with both letter and lines but also cute with just the letter since i would do a black letter and the tote is a clean white. swoon.
bought myself a foam wreath (holy cow i didn’t realize how freaking expensive they were). i justified it by promising to re-use it each time i switch decor colors/themes. then i have totally gotten my money’s worth. don’t think i will do yellow and grey yet…my fall colors are brown, grey, black and mustard and i plan to use some elements from this super cute pinned wreath i saw. especially the teeny tiny embroidery hoop. oh yes…i have one that small already!
sooooo…what do you have planned for your long weekend?
