How is it Thursday already?
Is anyone else a few days behind?
Does anyone else have summer fever?
I sure do!
Last week I needed to spiff up my spot at Station 8.
It just wasn't looking quite like 'me'.
So I decided to do a quick craft to add a little whimsey to my space.
Since I put myself on a spending freeze (ho hum)
I had to get creative with supplies I already had.
So this is what I came up with.
First, I made my girls have an apple sauce snack
because I needed another jar.
Yes, it is true, I buy a certain type of applesauce because of the jar.
After scrubbing it out, I gathered my supplies.
A little thrifting tip: always check out the craft section.
hoarding wisely buying vintage lace from thrift stores. Lace comes in handy ALL the time in a crafty world.
I then wrapped my jar in another crafting staple- burlap.
And since ya'll know how burlap behaves, I coated the edges with my trusty Fray Check to keep the thing from unraveling.
To finish up, I layered with a bit of lace.
I think they would make adorable tea light holders.
But since I don't want to burn Station 8 down,
I decided to whip up a few fun pinwheels.
Here's a little glimpse how it sweetened up my space.
I don't really expect anyone to buy these,
but I love the 'fun' element it adds to my little vintage corner of fun.
Then when I have more stuff to add, I get to bring them home and add a little happy to my home!
The moral of this little story: It is wise to hoard crafting supplies!
Hope you have a happy day!
