itching to make....

hello lovelies!

does anyone else have this problem??

too many things I want to make/rearrange/tweek......yet no huge motivation to start and/or finish - nor not knowing exactly where to start!!??

today - apart from spending far too long around the interwebs and trolling pinterest - I mucked around with this........

......embroidery hoops, washy tape and a tv cabinet that I'm attempting to pretty up!! there will be more paint and mirrors involved - it's taking a long time to get this one done - but it needed time to evolve from in-my-head concept to hopefully a great outcome.

will keep you posted on this one.

then some of this........

.....I need me some more cushions in the lounge room - and I'm trying to use some of the vast stash that is lurking in various rooms in this house.

again - I'll keep you posted as this one progresses also.

oh - and I just used the new picmonkey - online photo editing software - very similar to the soon to be defunct pinik. I found it super easy - and I'm very happy with the results. (these photos were just snappy camera shots - just fyi)

we're in for a super busy sport weekend for my two oldest girls. a volleyball day-camp / first netball games of the season (grading time) / trials for netball rep teams.

hopefully we'll also find out if the girls have made the state volleyball team for nationals.

fingers and toes all crossed and double crossed here!!

hope you're weekend is quieter than mine!

loads of hugz from here.

  1. Good luck to the girls! And don't ever ask me about unfinished craft projects.... x

  2. All looking good. And remember it's the journey that counts

  3. I love where this is heading. I've always thought you could do something very fun with embroidery hoops. Can't wait to see what happens :)

  4. Oh, the suspense! Can't wait to see the reveals.
    And thanks for the tip on Picmonkey. I've been wondering where to turn with picnik going away...

  5. i am so curious what your up to with those hoops. autumn is a good time for crafting so i am sure you will finish soonish. x

    ps. fingers crossed.

  6. We have our days with less or more motivation. I find going for a walk helps me come up with creative ideas. I can't wait to see the cushions you make for the lounge room.
