I’m a crafty slacker. I didn’t get to my Finished on Friday project until Sunday. Not only that, but I’m not completely finished! Even worse, I don’t have any pictures!!
Yesterday I tackled the growing number of stuffed “friends” that needed mending. Bears and bunnies were losing their hearts. Easter Bunny and Polar Bear both […]
If you’ve been waiting for me to post this recipe, thank you for being patient! I took a granola break for awhile. I got frustrated because you really can’t make a totally healthy version of this stuff. I’ve done the best I can, but it’s still packed with calories. Luckily, it […]
In my creative space today I’m fusing plastic grocery bags. Am I the only crafty person on the planet who hasn’t tried this yet? So far, I’ve had mixed results. I think it might be worth the extra effort to spring for some parchment paper.
Play along with your creative space over […]
You knew I was going to turn those capri pants into tote bags, didn’t you? Not just any bags, however, but bags with a purpose: keeping nature out of my pockets and my purse.
I’m sure many of you can relate to this: Mama, can you hold this rock? Here’s […]
This weekend was filled with birthday celebrations. Saturday we attended a surprise party for my friend Wanda, who is a serious Green Bay Packers fan. She loves scarves so the decision to make her a football scarf was an easy one. I knew exactly how I wanted this to look and it […]
These poor shorts have been sitting in my pile for a long time (note the wrinkles). I made these just like the first pair,* but this time I tried to add pockets. It didn’t go so well. I figured they were ready for the donate bag, but my husband said they […]
In my creative space today, I’m cooking up some ideas for some old capri pants. Can’t say much more because the end result may be a surprise.
stash: Pants saved from a clean sweep of my closet.

The FaveCrafts Blog wants to know what you have finished on the 15th. Over here, we’ve officially finished Valentine’s Day. How do I know? My daughter asked if we could replace the heart bunting with spring flowers.
I couldn’t move on to Spring without showing you these cute fortune cookies we […]
Did you get roses for Valentine’s Day? Some of my daughter’s teachers did.* This is probably the cutest crochet flower I have ever made.
I made them out of all types of yarn. I think the pattern looks best with cotton.
Only problem with these […]
This week’s Finished on Friday project was just a little bit of mending. I received this skirt from a friend. It didn’t need that much work: just hem the raw edge and sew a button on for the adjustable elastic. I wish I would have done it sooner, though. My daughter LOVES […]
