Feelin Crafty

 By now you should know that I LOVE doing crafty things.
I read several craft blogs and have about 10 projects that I am dying to make at any given time.
I SO enjoy sitting down with a cup of coffee and sewing, gluing, cutting, painting..
I really think it is a de-stresser for me. 
I feel relaxed when I am doing something creative.
And amazingly my kids leave me alone for the most part.
If they do come around, I just give them a paintbrush and let them go at it...
usually its easy to clean up.

Today, I got together with some old friends that I havent seen in forever and we traded cookies, drank coffee and made this adorable craft that I found here
It was such a great time!



 Here are the finished products on our tree-  I LOVE how they look translucent and colorful and bright!
I am trying to make more for gift tags to give to family and friends! 


On another creative note, I found these two vases discounted deeply 
at Joanne's and had to scoop them up. I put natural elements in them- 
found out in my back yard and couldn't be happier with how they turned out.

Your ornaments really do look pretty with the lights in the background, and your vases are very pretty. Thanks for the craft today! It was relaxing.
