Spring Wreath

A while back, I saw a wreath on Create Craft Love that I absolutely adored.  It was a fun spring wreath made from a garden hose. So, I thought I would give making one of these a try.  Of course, I managed not to rememeber to print off a list of the things I needed Read More …

#OurProject52 – Out of Focus

Do you ever feel out of focus?  That’s how I’ve been feeling lately, and I know it’s been seeping into the blog.  I can’t remember the last time I had a finished sewing project to share with you. Ok, I can remember when it was, but let’s just say it was a while ago. Instead Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Like it was in 3D

Because of my choice in college degrees, I’ve had access to 3D technology for a long time.  In college, we used 3D scanners that would scan and collect data from 3d objects and create a digital 3D model that could be manipulated for animation.

Stocking Wreath

I found a great wreath idea on the Midwest Living site last year. It’s a spring wreath using an umbrella, but it gave me the idea to make a wreath from a stocking. My wreath is currently hanging out  on my fake ficus tree at work, but I’ll take it home when the office closes Read More …

Christmas Wreath

A couple months ago, my sister asked me to make her a Christmas wreath.  So, we went down to Hobby Lobby and picked up a wreath, some decorative picks, and a few flowers.  I love the Hobby Lobby weekly sales.  We got a great price on everything. For most of the last month, all those Read More …

Craft Month 2011 – Day 20 – Embroidery

For today’s craft project, I thought I would try something that I have never done before.  I did some embroidery.  I started with a cute image I found online, which I printed it out and traced onto my fabric.  Then I did a lot of backstitching.  I’m very excited about how the final project turned Read More …
