For the past few days I've been visiting my grandparents. My grandmother shares my love for crafts which always results in lots of creative fun.
We took a trip to AC Moore with my cousin for wooden things to decoupage. I ended up with a small shadow box. It didn't start out with a particular theme, but a traveling theme developed as i added things to the box.
Years ago I learned to knit, and recently I pulled out the knitting again. I'm working on a long grey scarf right now that will eventually have ribbons and tassel-like things on the ends. The peach and green are for another project I will start soon... pictures will be up once I've started it!
This is a picture of what resulted from me having free time and being surrounded by craft stuff! This will eventually be a little journal! Some of the pages are decorative, others are plain, and the whole thing will be bound by ribbon!
I must say, one of my favorite things ever is painting pottery. When I come to my grandparents house there's a lovely little place where you can paint your pottery and get it fired. I love to go when I come here! In fact, my grandmother, cousin, and I have gone so many times the shop owner and the girl that works there know us! We've already gone twice, and I'm hoping to sneak in another visit tomorrow!
