Crafting On

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

crafting on Kevin and our three oldest went to Portland last week to pick up Purple Grandma from the airport. They had to spend the day there waiting for her plane so they made a few stops. One of those stops was my favorite bee supply store. They came home with this box of beeswax candle making supplies for me. Just what we needed now that Autumn is here and the gray clouds are rolling back in.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

This post is more of what I recently finished instead of what I am working on. I couldn't get it together enough to snap a photo of my current WIP - my day has been spent cooking and baking for K's upcoming birthday. I love all the prep that goes on around here the day before birthdays.

Anyway, back to the photos. Baby F needed a bag to corral his toys that stay in the van. Side note - He is my first baby that has needed special car toys to keep him happy for car rides. We even *gulp* had to pick up some plastic, flashy, noisy toys from our local Goodwill. I sewed him a simple drawstring bag with his leftover birthday fabric. C added the fun pompoms to the strings. I love her little touch to this bag. I actually tasked her to make me some more pom poms for a pair of Baby F's longies. Pompom all the things!! We recently bought a pompom maker and C has gone crazy with it (maybe I have, too). I think our little house will soon be filled with pompoms (envision the Trouble with Tribbles).

What are you working on? Happy creating!
