FUNctional crafting


new scarf, originally uploaded by laurensmashtoys.

Its starting to get *chilly* at the bus stop in the morning! So, a repurposed strip of a quilt that fizzled out and a little bit of fleece to back it and keep me toasty and I am on my way all quilty snuggly warm in the morning.

I must say, crafting is my favorite thing and I am such a big fan of being able to just whip up whatever you need. If only I could craft some fun ladies to hang out with. i am tired of the flaky ones hanging out around me. Or I just need my little Ertiepie friend to hang out some more! I need another lady's day for us. I live with 4 boys right now and sometimes you just need to girl-out. You know, eat some ice cream, watch a cheesy romantic movie, that kind of stuff.

I bought some shrinky plastic-y stuff. I am going to try and make a few Christmas time ornaments to have for my show, I hope they turn out how I want. I am having the hardest time finding a fabric store and polyfil. I finally went somewhere today and it sucked. :*( there was a really mean old lady cutting my fabric and telling me how much she liked to correct people's kids and tell them to control them. Bummer.

Aw, if I were there, we would totally have to eat ice cream and watch a cheesy movie. I love girly time! And the ladies at one of the fabric stores around here are crabby, too. I wonder why that is... Maybe they poked themselves with scissors one too many times or something...

I am always looking for a crafty friend to share a craft night with and I am a girl so it could be a girls craft night.

I heart shrinky dinks! They are great for making doodles into little charms and jewelry and whatever. Plus, mini things are always more adorable.
