It has been so long since I have written here. I have been busy as a bee with the family, the house and the crafty stuff but not so busy with the camera and picture downloads and uploads! At any rate, I will get back in the swing with the camera. Promise.
For now, here are a few preview bits about what I have been working on:
– Artist apron for my daughter’s art teacher. Unfortunately, we already gave this gift and I totally forgot to take a picture beforehand. I think it turned out well, sort of raw-looking canvas with green accent stitching and an appliqued leaf print (similar to the shirt in this post).
– School bag for my little girl. More to come on this.
– Granola bars. I have been eyeing this Makes and Takes recipe and this Super Healthy Kids recipe. Today I ended up making the Super Healthy Kids bars and they were terrific. I added a bit of ginger, cloves, apricot and coconut to the basic recipe and they are almost gone. So, sorry there will not be a picture of the first batch.
– And finally, I started a delicious list. In part to keep track of projects I want to try and also to (hopefully) make dinner prep easier by having an online cookbook of sorts. I guess this isn’t technically crafty, but I do hope it inspires more organization, which will free up time for craftiness. At least, that’s the plan!
