Crafty Moments..

It's been a wonderfully busy month, full of heaps of fun and creative moments, but it seems something I haven't had a chance to do in a little while is some good old fashioned crafting.  I especially love working on easy weekend projects, that only take an hour or two, but always make me feel excited and inspired.  So this weekend, I'm going to set aside a few hours and get a little crafty.  Here are a few projects and supplies that are inspiring my creative adventures.

I love washi tape.. and what a great way to give a thrifted piece of furniture a makeover.

Something that's been high on my crafty to do list is to crochet a colourful beret to brighten up my winter outfits and I think this beautiful yarn would be just perfect.

I'm also loving this embroidered cushion cover.. looks like a perfect relaxing weekday evening project to me. 

I've been meaning to try making some painted jars for a little while now.  I'm so inspired by these gorgeous pastel tones.

And I couldn't resist another washi tape project.  How cute is this little washi tree.  Such a lovely and simple way to brighten up an office space. 

I'd love to hear about your creative projects! What are you working on at the moment?

Much Love

  2. Those painted jars are really pretty!


  3. Ooooohhhh! That pillow is awesome! Thank you for sharing.

  4. That table is super cute! I'm working on a fuzzy felts board for my niece's birthday with lots of little outfits, I'm hoping it turns out okay!

  9. I love the cushion cover. Depending on the colors of a room, it could be done so many different ways. :)

  10. I am absolutely obsessed with washi tape! If there is an empty surface, I find a way to put the tape on it. My poor roommates haha!
