One of my favorite things about winter is that I get to stay inside and work on DIY projects. Unfortunately, I also have a few other responsibilities, so I can’t just “play” all day long, but there definitely seems to be more opportunities to stay home where it is warm and cozy, which makes it much easier to find a few minutes here and there to “make stuff.”
I’m almost all reorganized out in my sewing room, so now it is time to pick up a few of the projects I started before the flood, and even make plans to start a couple of new projects. So this week I was able to get out and about to visit some of the other bloggers from last week’s party and I discovered a few new ideas that I want to try.
I hope you have time to be creative on these cold winter days, too!
I’ve made lots and lots of baby blankets, but I always love to learn new techniques, so when I came across this blog post at Nap Time Creations I decided to check it out. She uses two pieces of cute flannel fabric, stitches them together (right sides facing) leaving an opening to turn right side out, hand stitches the opening, and then ties it with coordinating yarn. So cute!
It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so there are lots of fun DIY crafts and projects online to inspire you to make something creative for the special people in your life. I just love this cute printable from Kevin and Trisha at Blowing Away Out West! It is light-hearted and whimsical with just a hint of anticipation for spring. The bicycle with the flower baskets just makes me want to sing and welcome a new season! I think I will print this out for my art journal . . . on my way to do that right now!
Wreaths are so perfect for every season and this one is so fluffy and cozy that it makes me want to curl up with a good book by the fireplace. But, too bad, because I have too many other things to do today to slow down long enough to read. Maybe this evening when my work is done, but I do just love the soft, fluffy white yarn and the black and white bow adds just the right touch to this beautiful wreath from the Red Painted Cottage.
