Sick, Sick, Sick

We’ve spent the last couple weeks stuck in the house, thanks to some icky viruses that just don’t want to move on. And as much as I enjoy being a stay-at-home-mom and homeschooling DD, those of you who know me know that I don’t LIKE BEING AT HOME.  Especially not for an extended period of time.  Especially not when I’m sick and can’t get anything done. Especially when it keeps me from going to the zoo with a friend I haven’t seen in three years!  Urgh.

So we’re still stuck in the house feeling icky and going stir crazy.

The Twinery

I’ve made so many projects using twine from The Twinery over the last few months.  Sadly, I don’t have pictures of everything, as I was without a camera for a good part of that time.  I LOVE The Twinery’s baker twine.  It comes in so many yummy colors and I find many of them are perfect for fall crafting.  You can find an autumn twine pack on their website, but if I were to buy colors for fall, I would include the lilac twine as well – this is my favorite season for purple.

Here are a few of my favorite projects using The Twinery’s twine in scrapbooking and cardmaking (of course, it’s also a beautiful used to wrap up packages or envelopes, as well!):

I’m so glad to be back to actually posting pictures again.  Yay for new cameras!!!  Here’s a little peek at the homemade fall decor on the shelf over my couch.  The “artwork” is made with lots and LOTS of glimmer mist and inks.  The banner is all handmade with up-cycled cardboard boxes as the base for each pennant.  Letters are cut by hand and covered in Martha Stewart glitter.

I had fun with this kit! Super versatile! I did get a little obsessed with pinwheels this month, though. Click on image above to purchase.

Loved playing with Echo Park Summer papers here!

Oct Afternoon thrift shop papers and more pinwheels!

And this one is various paper scraps from my desk. 🙂
