I used to be pretty crafty back when my children were younger. I always had a sewing project going either for our home or for Caroline. I needlepointed, decorated cakes, and painted. Once I started homeschooling, all of that came to a halt.
That is, until last night when, instead of studying, I decided to make a wreath for my front door. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s summery and brightens up my front porch:
And then, again tonight, I put off my studying to make something. I wanted a bulletin board for my new office, so I used a framed print that I no longer liked, added a sheet of corkboard, and toned down the gold frame.
Once I put it up on the wall, I realized that my plain white thumbtacks weren’t going to cut it, so I heated up the glue gun and added some old buttons to them:
And now, with that done, it’s time to pull out the books.
Oh, wait. I need to do some ironing…
