I went into a craft store this afternoon without a list or even a strong idea of what I wanted to actually pursue from my pinterest portfolio. Note to self: never again. Wandering a craft store didn’t get my brain waves going at all. In fact, I’d pick up a few things and then promptly put them back, unsure of if/what/how I’d do anything with it. I ended up leaving the store with nothing, except a little Christmas spirit with all the decorations and music. (I know, I know – can we just have Thanksgiving first? But I love it just the same).
I was still bound and determined to craft something, so I started simple. Remember a few weeks ago when I decided to make a string of quotes for my office? (Turns out it was more than a month ago, since I had to go digging to find the entry… whoops!) I’ve finally done it. Kind of. I picked up colored notecards and picked out my quotes. Now all I need is to tack up the string and finish, which I’ll be able to do on Tuesday. Finally – I’ll actually complete a pinterest idea!
Not only that, but with the wire I’m using for the quotes, I’ve also decided to craft my own earring holder. Mine is falling apart and takes too much work to put the earrings into, so this should be a better (and cuter!) alternative.
I should quit before I’m head. Or at least be more prepared next time I’m brave enough to venture into a craft store. And hopefully on Wednesday I’ll have two DIY projects to showcase!
