Craft Cure Coming Up!

Max patiently waiting on the porch to be let out to play - he chews a bone for amusement, but occasionally gets involved with crafting, but not today.

Today, I tried a little crafting to keep me in one place today. Here's what I came up with...

First off! That fabulous CraftCorps Stencil Set from Vickie Howell and ILovetoCreate.com that I've been pining for arrived and I was able to stencil (very easily, I might add)a denim tote that's been screaming - EMBELLISH ME, for awhile! It's been ages since I've stenciled anything, but I have to tell you, this was a breeze- I even added a little glitter to honor the wonderful Crafty Chica!

In progress. Glitter was sprinkled over the wet paint - easily peel off the stencil when dry. Easy or what!?
This color combo was turquoise and chocolate (they had me at chocolate) on blue denim. Vickie, who was kind enough to tweet me back with a color suggestion. Thanks Vickie!

My version of Owlbert

Moving on - you may remember the post yesterday regarding Owlbert - a free downloadable pattern from John W. Golden. (we likie). Well, here's my version of the cutie and he now watches over me in my office. Another easy and DElightful project to keep me occupied while I'm recovering. I think you'll find it fun too - there are so many ways to decorate this fellow. He's partial to offices, the fridge, or anyplace you need something happy.
Recovery from many things - even a tragedy - can be helpful, in its own way. I've learned to have a little fun, relax and acknowledge my limitations. I also notice how, when I'm sick - ideas flood my brain and I get fired up for another project. Sometimes nagging problems diminsh or get solved in a way I never thought of before.
Tune in next time to see how recycle, reuse and redecorating activities come in handy, for a birthday boy, and the pets.
Craft for the cure of whatever is bothering you and it will vanish into thin air...POOF! Much better.
