My Crafting Center

I was lucky to move into a house with a sunroom… an extra space that I could create things at my own pace. This room has become my crafting center.

I have supplies here for candle making, sewing and mending, making epsom salt blends, coloring, and miscellaneous paper crafts.

I have supplies here to do seasonal displays around my house as well. River rocks, colored marbles, baskets, leaves, and flowers, both dried and silk.

On the other side of the room, I have gift wrapping supplies and my stash of greeting cards and envelopes, painting, glitter, pottery, ribbon, string, tape, wool, and so much more.

This is my organized mess of art supplies, craft ideas, and a few unfinished projects. As I find time, I will organize, create, and muddle through new ideas here.

*editors note* If you see something in my supplies that you have questions about, or if you see an idea you would like to develop, please let me know!

Backyard Planning

yard

To the yard! …Wait, it’s a big patch of grass with a few trees scattered here and there… LET’S IMPROVE!

First off, what do I want? Well lets see… a half decent sized vegetable garden would be a good start, with a herb garden area set aside from the main vegetables. Then, a flower plot, maybe with a water feature and some rock detailing off in another area…

I have plans to build the raised beds for the vegetables and fill them with dirt this fall, as well as map out where and how I would like to place my herbs. I would like to find plans for a slotted compost bin as well, but I will make that this winter to set up in the spring.

The flowers and rock garden will be a progressive project, with the bulbs being planted this fall, and a mesh of ideas still needed to be sorted through
