Well...I'm not sure I'm completely ready to commit to a scrapbook/crafting/stamping blog. Can you tell? I promised one back in the spring and here it is September and I'm still dragging my feet. But a few times a week, the old west wind blows in my direction and I consider it, my fingers itchy to put thoughts to the keyboard. And seeing as I'm a rather impulsive girl, I sat down tonight at the computer with no intention of starting a blog and here I am writing up a post. What has gotten into me?
As with all impulsive actions, one tends to reconsider after about five minutes. (Ask Kayne West. Man...what a tool!) With that in mind, I'm going to give myself a little escape hatch of one month. If I find I just don't have the creative energy and enough interesting stuff to say in that span of time, I'm outta here. We shall see how it goes. I'm curious myself as to the outcome.
Enough of the inner angst. What a drag. How about something fun? A little crafty goodness to whet the appetite. Throwing out my best idea in several months into blogland. Will it be the pinnacle of this blog or just the beginning? Who the heck knows. Let's put it out there and see. Check out the art in Hank's playroom:
Did you know you can cut fabric on your Cricut machine? Here are the settings:
Pressure dial: medium to high
speed: low or medium
Iron and back quality cotton fabric with Heat and Bond. Adhere with brayer/rolling pin to your Cricut mat (I do this with everything, really presses what I'm going to cut to the mat and I have less cutting errors) and go to town. I attached my letters to cream colored canvas, bought on the cheap at Joann's, zig zagged stitched on the edges, and then gallery wrapped them on IKEA frames. Just lovely. Size of each piece is 19x19 inches and I completed the whole project for $80. Can't beat that with a Pottery Barn Kids catalog.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see both of us back here again:).
