Ah, it’s Friday. <deep sigh>
What are you all doing this weekend? We’re looking forward to a geeky Star Trek date night, a meeting with our beekeeping club (more on that later!), and of course, lots of Tried & True crafting. After a week filled with sad and “meh” news, I’m looking forward to a little zen crafting time.
Here’s a little review of the last week courtesy of the Tried & True Instagram feed. (Click through to the bottom of the post for the awesome Photographer’s Dream Giveaway entry form!)
Everyone have a nice Mother’s Day? This was my favorite gift of the day. Jim drew it and Jack colored it in. I love that he didn’t make me as pasty white as I am in real life!
I pulled these shelves out of the garage, added some hammered metal spray paint and threw it up in my craft nook. It seriously is a nook so I need all the storage space I can get!
My son slept over at my sister’s house for the first time this week and my little heart broke. Check out his sleep over bag…it’s from the ’40s. Jim bought it for me for our first year anniversary. Who would have known!
We pulled the clear easel my sister made for Max’s birthday outside and made art under the hot Texas sun. The kids loved it…and then started painting each other. :^/
After waiting waaaaay too long, I finally got my hair cut! Well, really, it was just a trim but I’m thrilled that the ends don’t look and feel like a bristle brush.
Made this cute little Glittered Rainbow Frame in 15 minutes! Well, actually it was a bit longer than 15 because I had to stop and take pictures but I’m sure you could whip it out in 15 without a camera in tow. Love love love the glitter tape!
Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for daily craft nonsense!
