I'm No Martha
I've had this craft idea in my head for over a year now. Since it deals with crafts, that's where the idea usually stays put...in my head and never put to actual use. I'll try to replicate an idea I've seen; whether it be sewing, drawing, cross stitch, etc., and it never, and I mean never turns out half of what my mind thinks it was going to. So I get frustrated, usually pout about it, and then proceed to dislike every crafty woman I know and find something wrong with her.
Today my craft idea from way ago came full circle in my mind and I knew I had to give it a shot. I had received a 20% coupon from JoAnn Fabrics last week. I needed fabric for my project so I made a plan that today was the day.
I wrangled the boys in the car and picked out my main fabric then the coordinating colors. I had a rough time with even that small of a craft task. How hard should it be to pick out three designs/colors? Hard apparently; I was in the store for over an hour!
Here's my three step project and how the final work turned out:
The framed fabric is hanging in Lauren's room above her bed. That child desperately needed some decorating done to her room.
I plan on adding a few more as I come across frames, but for now this is all my craft-less brain can handle. As I said...I'm no Martha.
