I like crafts! Big whoop, wanna fight about it?!

Hello My Lovelies!

No one could ever mistake me for an old Southern Belle, you can look at my picture and know that definition is far from the truth.  But I will admit that I like doing certain crafts… yes, I like crafts!  Big whoop, wanna fight about it?! ( Macie will laugh at this later)  I enjoy coloring and roaming around Michael’s, Hobby Lobby and Garden Ridge in search of my next project.  Growing up my mom always had my sister and I doing something artsy, from color or paint by number to latch hooking to eventually crocheting and cross stitching.  At any random time, my sister can be found crocheting a scarf or an afghan.  Me on the other hand, I never wanted to learn to crochet when my mom offered to teach me, cross stitching was my thing.  ( I have since asked my mom to teach me so that I can make baby blankets for friends)  I have made many cross stitching pieces and am currently working on one for my mom’s b’day.  However, it seems that I have chosen the largest piece I have tried to date and I am not completely sure I will get it done in a week and a half… HELP!!!

My mom and I love butterflies, so I chose this as part of her June 7th b’day present.

You will note that this piece is 11 x 11… I failed to read that part when I bought it, I was distracted by all the pretty colors

  

This is more than I bargained for!

After 2 hours of work

After an additional 1 1/2 hours… I will make it… barely!

There is a certain solace and peace that I find in doing crafts, the concentration and beauty that comes with every design.  After this… Tinkerbell!  Here’s to finding what calms your soul and brings you peace.

Blessings and Happiness

Emerging As a New Me

Anyone who really knows me knows that I am random. I can be easily distracted by squirrels, puppies and butterflies, drawn to their seemingly random patterns and actions.  Something that my mom and I have in common is our love of birds and butterflies.  I adore butterflies, I will stop everything that I am doing to marvel at their magnificent hues and delicate nature. My sister and I share an affinity for many things, seafood, wine, happy hours and the occasional tattoo. Several months ago we went to our favorite tattoo parlor, The Electric Chair, for late night sister time.  While there we both got inspirational tattoos, hers was words of faith, mine was a butterfly.  Read the rest of this entry »
