I’ve recently made two other felt garlands; fall leaves here, and four leaf clovers here, and have this grand plan to make a full ‘months of the school year’ set for a friend of mine who’s a teacher. The logical next garland to make was of course a September back-to-school themed one.
I’ve been wanting to make a macramé wall hanging for a couple of years now. I finally took the plunge a couple of weeks ago, and am so happy with the results.
I love having fresh-cut flowers in the house. I honestly don’t buy them very often because of the added expense, so I was very excited when we had friends over for dinner the other night who were thoughtful enough to bring a bouquet of flowers with them. I dropped them into a vase of water right away, and then spent just a few minutes sprucing them up later.
You guys. I made my own Ricotta this week. I’m still in disbelief myself, but let me be the first to tell you just how incredibly easy it was. When my husband and I were at Urban Craft Uprising before the holidays during our annual Christmas gift haul, my husband and I got our sister-in-law this DIY cheese kit for Christmas. I’m sure you can only imagine my excitement when I got the same kit for my birthday recently and was able to give it a whirl myself.
